We've all complained about Mark Teixeira's decline, and in a world where ballplayers on the wrong side of 30 get signed to mega deals that last until they are eligible for Social Security, Tex seems to be aware that he isn't worth what the Yankees are paying him. Preaching to the choir, dude.
Chad Jennings over at LoHud was kind enough to go through the entire Spring Training roster to give you the heads up on who will be there if you are unfamiliar with some of the names lucky enough to receive an invitation.

Andrew should have his own breakdown here soon.
