Big League Stew - MLB

I've yet to hear a proclamation from Yankees Universe that Mark Teixeira(notes) is "a true Yankee" but with that big homer against the Red Sox, numbers that get him into the AL MVP discussion and now an appearance on Letterman, you have to figure he's well on his way.

Now for the small little matter of helping the Yankees end their World Series "drought." 

Teixeira has struck me as a bit too earnest and maybe even over sincere since coming to the Big Apple, but I think he still comes off as likable and I have to imagine his endorsement money is going to skyrocket considerably from the $250K he made in '08.

Above, find a clip of Tex talking with Dave about the places he didn't end up. Below, check out raw footage of Letterman and Teixeria taking their swings on the street.
