Mark Teixeira: Sharing Yankee Stadium with NYCFC Will Suck: New York Yankees first baseman Mark Teixiera, asked about sharing the team's stadium with the new MLS team New York City FC: "It's going to suck, but you have to deal with it. It's going to tear up the infield, but there's nothing we can do about it, so we'll deal with it." NYC FC plays its home opener Sunday. Outfielder Brett Gardiner fears that when new grass has to be put down, it will give way and cause ankle and knee injuries.

It's a legitimate complaint both ways (playing on a baseball field will likely suck for the soccer players as well), and spectators could probably grouse as well. What's the latest on a soccer-specific stadium? I recall there were plans (or competing plans) to build something in one of the five boroughs, but seems to have stalled out at present.

Teixera is a first baseman. He rarely even sees much of the field, as he certainly is not much of a hitter any more. Seems to me he should be toward the tail end of the line for complainers. Clyde, you're a clod.
