FORT MYERS, Fla. — Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira spoke to reporters today in Tampa, He pronounced the Yankees as underdogs in the AL East.

"It's a lot of fun because we're the underdogs this year. I love it. No one is picking us right now," he said. "We have to re-prove ourselves this year. The Red Sox made a lot of great improvements."

Terry Francona smiled when apprised of those remarks.

"I don't care," he said, "They have a $200 million payroll. They’re not gonna be too underdoggish."
