Tex's plan for 2015: "Hit 'em where they is."

It's based on Pete Carroll's Seattle Seahawks' model for first and goal from the one.

Here's a story on how Mark Teixeira plans to beat defensive over-shifts in 2015: He'll simply swing harder and hit more HRs and doubles.

Missing in the story: The fact that Tex last year hit .216.

Tex doesn't want to become a "slap" hitter. as in, slap one down the left field line for a double. Who wants that?

Texeira should be locked in a room and forced to watch this clip.

If he watches it and continues to say "Every time I try to slap balls the other way, it doesn’t go well for anybody" (quoted here), a mid-level Yankee employee should be assigned to slap his head.

Seriously, can't the guy see that it only took one of those for Robbie to remove the shift placed on him?
