Mark Teixeira said yesterday his rehab is going “great” and he expects to be playing in big league games before June 1st.

I never thought I’d root for the Yankees, but they need to keep winning once Teixeira, Jeter, A-Rod and everyone comes back or else we’re going to have months of hearing stuff about how the stars killed the awesome team chemistry they developed early in the season. And I really don’t think I can handle that.
