Morning Bits: Teixeira, Robertson, Maine, Martin

Good morning everyone and a Happy Saturday to you. Yankees play at 4:05pm today (it’s 1:05pm on the West Coast) and CC Sabathia will take the mound in hopes of having a great outing (he lost the last 2 in a row). Let’s get to the morning links, shall we?

— Mark Texieira seems to be feeling a little better. He hit a 2 run homer and he tried to stretch a double into a triple. The best part? He didn’t cough.

— Looks like David Robertson won’t go ‘Tiger’ hunting after all. Joe Girardi said that it’s impossible that D-Rob will be with the team during the Yankees & Tigers series.

— You guys remember John Maine, 15 time winner for the Mets in 2007 right? Well, he’s a Yankee now. Yankees signed him to add pitching depth since Manny Banuelos is on the DL.

— We all know Russell Martin’s bat has been ice cold for the past couple of weeks, waiting for it to thaw out. But Joe Girardi says that they are sticking by Martin no matter what.
