Great Moments in Hating Mark Teixeira

Short, sweet, and to the point. What I love about the shot — courtesy of the fine folks at Getty Images, via Daylife — is that she’s sitting among mostly Yankees fans at Oriole Park.

I’m with her, though: Never forget, Orioles fans.

I just watched Tex hitting today on the MLB.tv free game. Many pitchers have ridiculous ‘pitching faces’ Tex has the ultimate ‘hitting face’. Looks like he’s doing algebra while passing a kidney stone.

Pfft, algebra is easy. Try calculus instead.

I can’t imagine Mark Teixeira EVER doing calculus.

May I point you all in the direction of this wonderful series run by run by Amazin’ Avenue last year.

Prize comment goes to deadspy3, re Teixeira:

“He looks like a moronic horse which has just been asked to explain the Bernoulli effect without using the word “neigh”.”

Given that he went to Georgia Tech, he was required to at least be in the class.

Teixiera always looks like the Van Zandt charachter from Sopranos.

Not an O’s fan , but I have always hated MT.

Money hungry punk.

I can’t imagine why anyone would want to play in Baltimore while Peter Angelos is still the owner.

Since the headline was truncated,I thought it was going to be about Mark Teahan.

The fact that Orioles fans actually believe Mark Teixeira would come play in Baltimore for less money and on a miserably run team with no direction whatsoever and no chance of winning in the near or distant future demonstrates how absolutely out of touch with reality these fans are.

What Peter Angelos has done to the Orioles tradition is up there with taking a hammer to the Venus de Milo.

Everyone hates Mark Teixeira. Most of us, we just hate his stupid horse face. Orioles fans can latch onto a narrative about the big shot that spurned his home town for wealth and fame and wifely shopping bliss. We all end up in the same place. Don’t worry about it. Embrace it.

Shouldn’t it be “F. Y. M. T” instead of “F. U. M. T. ?” Since when does YOU start with U?

Or maybe I’m reading the sign wrong. It could very well be “F. M. U. T.” I see some kind of cartoon chicken on the sign so maybe it’s supposed to be read like a manga – “U. F. T. M.” Maybe she’s dyslexic and she meant “T. M. U. F.?”

We’ll never know. It’s a bit presumptuous to conclude this is an anti-Mark Teixeira sign.

“What I love about the shot … is that she’s sitting among mostly Yankees fans at Oriole Park.”

How’d she get away with that? When the Yankees are in town at the Rogers Centre, Yankee security roam around pointing out hecklers they want kicked out, and RC staff oblige!

That’s because it’s illegal to talk above a whisper in the lower deck of any venue in Toronto.
