Yankees | Mark Teixeira admits career in decline
New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira acknowledges that age has taken a toll on his batting average (.308 in 2008, .251 in 2012) and that it is a trend that is unlikely to reverse course. "This is my 11th year," Teixeira said in a Wall Street Journal interview. "I'm not going to play 10 more years. I want 5 or 6 good ones. So that would say I'm on the backside of my career. And instead of trying to do things differently on the backside of my career, why not focus on the things I do well, and try to be very good at that?"
