You've already heard Mark Teixeira recount how his wife Leigh issued her decree that he had to become a Yankee. Now hear the story from the syrupy-voiced Georgia Peach herself:
One thing that wasn't mentioned here yesterday: Tex was also apparently wowed by a Twisted Sister video that Brian Cashman put together. Wow. If only Theo Epstein had known that Teixeira had such poor musical taste, I'm sure he could've topped the Yanks' offer. A young and hip musician like Epstein has to have Dee Snider on speed dial, no?
