Mark Teixeira Featured Card of the Week

“Mr. Perfect.” That’s my new nickname for Mark Teixeira. He plays flawless defense, hammers the baseball and has a want-to-win mentality.

I know some people say Derek Jeter was the team MVP last year, but to me it’s undoubtedly Teixeira. He led the American League in total bases, RBIs and tied for the league-lead in homers. In my mind, he deserved a lot more votes for AL MVP, but that doesn’t matter now.

Teixeira turns 30 on April 11 and is signed through age 36. Last season marked the sixth straight season Mr. Perfect hit 30 homers and drove in 100 runs. If he averages 35 homers and 110 RBIs for the rest of his contract, he’ll be right on the cusp of 500 homers and 1,500 RBIs for his career.

Basically, he’s the man.
