Interesting quotes from Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira in the Wall Street Journal. He’s got a contract that pays him $22.5 million dollars a year. Is he overpaid?

He says yes. “I have no problem with anybody in New York, any fan, saying, ‘You’re overpaid.’ Because I am. We all are.”

He goes on, “Agents are probably going to hate me for saying it. But there’s nothing you can do that can justify a $20 million contract.”

An athlete admitting he’s overpaid! We expect a report from LAX any minute that they’ve spotted flying pigs.
