Mark Teixeira is an interesting topic of discussion for me. I've loved the guy at times, and I've hated the guy at times. I've preached patience with him, and I've called him out for his lack of production this season. A few weeks ago, Mike Axisa of RAB commented on the adjustment Teix made in his approach in mid-May during his 3-game rest to finally rid himself of his vocal cord ailment, scrapping the more-balanced swing approach he entered the season with and returning to his pull-happy ways, and the results generated by the adjustment. At the time of Mike's post, it appeared that Teix was swinging the bat well, but when you look at the big picture, Teix's overall performance this season is down from what we can all agree was a subpar 2011. Something's not adding up here.
