"That Swing Felt Like Before I Got Hurt."

What Duque said about Tex -- exactly.

From Tex's lips to the Babe's ears:

"The biggest thing for me is that swing felt like before I got hurt," said Teixeira, who is batting .229 with two home runs and five RBIs in 11 games. "It has been a long time since I felt that. I want to keep doing it. It is consistency, continuing to get better. Hopefully, this is the first step to a lot of those."

...Has Teixeira finally moved past the injury for good?

"No," he said. "Hopefully, I will be soon. It is something I'll always have to keep an eye on."

P.S. Ichiro is batting .333, 13 for 39. And I bet any money that ball that scooted past Beltran last night doesn't scoot past Ichiro. Just saying. He's not Soriano quite yet.

Damn, I didn't see that play. We had company so I only watched the game off and on for some.

Thanks, Nick. Ichiro misjudging a fly I've heard everything. Damn.

Yes, it was a Un- Ichiro of the mighty Ichiro.

This is a TOTAL aside, but what a wonderfully bizarro flourish The Master uses when doing his Brut commercial ie. "Let your Maaaaaaan>Grrrrrwl Out!" It's weird AND hilarious at the same time, like finding your Uncle's porn stash,,,,,
