Stop me if you’ve heard this one before. The Yankees sign a big-name free agent first baseman coming off an MVP-caliber year to a mammoth long-term deal that will keep him in the Bronx well past the point he’s still worth his salary. The slugger goes crazy in his first season in pinstripes, [...]

Mauer, the first catcher to lead his league in batting average (.365), on-base [...]
Cashman tells Newsday’s Kat O’Brien that the Yanks were out of the Teixiera bidding until the very last minute, and that only when the specter of him landing with the Red Sox became obvious, did he get the go ahead from Hal. She reports:
