No one tell Mark Teixeira about the Super Bowl, OK?

I’d like to think Mark Teixeira was just trolling Broncos fans here, but I don’t know.

Best part is the very first Twitter response is to tell him who won. Followed by people yelling at the guy for telling Teixeira who won. They got Tex’s back.

MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand reports that there is some momentum in talks between the Mariners and free agent outfielder Jon Jay.

Jay, 32, hit .296/.374/.375 in 433 plate appearances with the Cubs last season, which is adequate. He’s heralded more for his defense and his ability to play all three outfield spots.

The Mariners are losing center fielder Jarrod Dyson to free agency and likely don’t want to rely on Guillermo Heredia next season, hence the interest in Jay. The free agent class for center fielders is otherwise relatively weak.
