Mark Teixeira Signs With The Yankees

Mark TeixeiraTotal Pro Sports – Would you believe the New York Yankees have signed another top free agent this off season.  After recently signing starting pitchers CC Sabathia and AJ Burnett to their All Star team, the Yankees have added to that team in singing First Base/DH Mark Teixeira.

Reports are that Mark Teixeira has signed on with the New York Yankees for 8 years at $170 million.  They Yankees became interested in Teixeira when they heard that the Boston Red Sox were reportedly offering Mark a contract.

In 1 month the New York Yankees have dished out about $400 million in new contracts.  Sabathia is set to receive $161 million, Burnett is set to receive $82.5 million and now Teixeira $170 million.  The Yankees as a team have the 4 highest paid players in baseball; Alex Rodriguez, Derek Jeter, CC Sabathia and now Mark Teixeira.

When will the MLB league realize that their league is becoming a big joke.  How can it be fair to teams like the Toronto Blue Jays, Florida Marlins and Tampa Bay Rays, when a team like the Yankees can go out and spend half a billion dollars on new contracts?

We hope sooner then later the MLB relaizes that this is not fair and begins to implement changes .  The MLB needs a slaray cap and revenue needs to be split like the NFL.  Every team has to be equal no matter how much the teams TV deal is worth or how much the Owner can spend.
