"We're back to being the Yankees again," said Mark Teixeira. 

He may be right, but I wonder just what Yankees team this edition is ‘back to being.’

I can’t recall a Yankee team with a first baseman who essentially missed all of last season and had steady declines in production the two previous -  and a 40-year-old shortstop making an announced farewell tour. 

The Yankee infield is a lot like the revered Abbot & Costello’s ‘Who’s On First’ lineup - but the Yanks have ‘Who’ on 2nd.  ‘I Don’t Know’ is still playing third, but they weren't Yankees. 

Oh, wait. Tex must mean that this off-season the Yankees spent nearly $500,000,000 to sign a singles hitting center fielder, a .250 catcher and a 40 year old outfielder. Now it makes sense
