    Here's the link:


    If my math is correct, surgery on March 9 with 10 weeks of rehab has him returning on approximately May 18. So that's six weeks of the regular season, or about 39 games — almost 1/4 of the regular season.

    He'd also miss two series each against the Red Sox and Rays.

    I'm surprised Yuri didn't break the story.
  6. Timing is everything - how perfect a replacement for A-Rod would Nomar Garciaparra have been? Too bad Nomar signed with the A's just last week. Having Nomar and Jeter on the left side of the same infield would have also guaranteed the Yankees plenty of good press for once.

    Do the Yankees go internal for A-Rod's replacement? Angel Berroa, Cody Ransom or Justin Leone? None of those names float the proverbial boat. Do they rush Bradley Suttle? That's not a good idea.

    Bill Hall of the Brewers has been mentioned as a possible replacement but I'm guessing the asking price would be too high. Another name to consider is the A's Bobby Crosby. The 2004 Rookie of the Year really hasn't lived up to expectations and with Orlando Cabrerra being brought in - Crosby is destined to be a super sub for the A's this season. The A's would love to shed his $5.25 million contract for 2009 so I doubt if the Yankees would have to part with much in the terms of prospects.

    This team is going to be a train wreck.

    This will be only the second time ARod has gone on the DL, right?

    Also, I wonder what all the info on the cyst is. Could it be cancer?

    God. Angel Berroa. That is terrible.

    For some reason, I actually think the Yankees will be fine. Time for Sabathia, Burnett and the rest of that pitching staff to earn its money.

    It's too bad the Pirates don't have a decent third baseman to trade them.

    Did we lay some cabbage on the Yankees' finish a couple months ago?

    From a USA Today story last April. I guess this would be his sixth career DL trip, but only his second since 2000:
