Mark Teixeira is so great. First off, the quote comes from the Wall Street Journal, read HERE and has to do with Mark Teixeira and his monster 8 year contract and big contracts in general. Here it is, the quote of the day... maybe even the weekend... from Tex himself:
"Agents are probably going to hate me for saying it... You're not very valuable when you're making $20 million. When you're Mike Trout, making the minimum, you are crazy valuable. My first six years, before I was a free agent, I was very valuable. But there's nothing you can do that can justify a $20 million contract."
Thank you and Bravo Mark. Finally an honest player making millions just telling us how it is and not trying to justifying making that kind of dough...
