The Yankees may be without first baseman Mark Teixeira for the start of the team's six-game road trip because he plans to be with his wife for the birth of their child.At least it's for a good reason. Congrats, Mark.
While the rest of his teammates left Yankee Stadium following Monday's 2-1 loss to the Red Sox headed for a charter flight to Arlington, Tex., Teixeira stayed behind in New York. The team gave permission for Teixeira to join his wife, whose due date is Tuesday.
Teixeira said he was unsure how many games -- if any -- he would miss.
"This is not an exact science," Teixeira said.
