The Kamenetzky's On Manny Vs. Teixeira
How strange is it that Angels fans barely acknowledge Mark Teixeira, yet Manny-mania is transcendent in Chavez Ravine? The question isn't moot; consider his first home appearance:
Talking to another writer, he told me that before Teixeira’s first home game, he had prepped an item on the debut. Assuming the welcome would be massive, he wrote the thing up, leaving space for the little details to fill in after his introduction to his new home crowd… except the expected ovation didn’t happen. So much for the best laid plans.Both are big hired guns, but as Brian points out, the difference is where the teams are in the standings.
