Mark Teixeira is now hitting .403/.457/.758 in May, and .301/.390/.510 for the season.

He’s such a skilled hitter from both sides, explosive and patient and versatile.

He’s such a great defender, despite playing a position that he didn’t take on until he was in the big leagues.

He and Leigh are such a credit to this community, committing as much time and effort and money to charitable causes as any young athlete in the Metroplex.

He’s a real good bet to be honored in Cooperstown one day. If he does so having worn just one big league uniform, I will never be happier to have been dead wrong about something.

But I’ll be surprised.
