Mark Teixeira Featured Yankee Card of the Week

teixeira4 How hot is Mark Teixeira right now? Well, over the last week, he has a higher batting average than his on-base percentage (.520 vs. .500). I kid you not. He has one sac fly and no walks (if you wanted the explanation for the anomaly).

Back to the point. He went 13-for-25 last week with an unmatched 29 total bases, to go along with a 1.160 slugging percentage.

Heck, he’s compiled the same number of triples in the past week than he had in the prior three and a half years (three). I kid you not.

With a likely AL Player of the Week award on his way, Teixeira is this week’s featured Yankee Card of the Week. The card was bought by me at Yankee Stadium in this year’s team set.
