Morning Bits: Teixeira, Granderson, Sabathia

Good morning everyone. A HORRIBLE call last night by Jerry Meals cost the Yankees the game–and Mark Teixeira re-injured himself and ranted to reporters about the umpires. Yikes! Yankees can get revenge today at 1:35pm which could determine if the Yankees are in first place. Hopefully this fires this team up. Here are the morning links.

— Mark Teixeira ripped the umpires for their bad call last night and has appeared to re-injure his calf. He’s most definitely not in the lineup today.

—  We’re so used to hearing “The Grandy Man Can” but as of late…”The Grandy Man Can’t” even get on base or get clutch hits!

— CC Sabathia has not been what the Yankees had hoped for this season which has really hurt the Yankees. Hey, Hiroki Kuroda and Phil Hughes can’t carry this team by themselves. They need CC!
