    The Yankees are aging.

     

    Aging, with bones brittle like plaster of paris.

    Aging, with ligaments supple as dried rubber bands.

    Aging, with tendon sheaths integral as an old garden hose.

     

     

     



    ever notice in the past

     

    how some in RSN

    loved to talk about how the yanks were to old

    and then ended up using injuries for an excuse

    for Y their team finished so for behind them

    just what was there point

     




    Zac, for few years wondered why Yanks w/ older roster always managed to stay pretty healthy while RS seemed decimated by injuries [didn't matter age Ells/Buchholz/Pedroia]. But last yr injuries started to pile up on Yanks. Without the depth on the bench as yrs past, not sure they can withstand the # of injuries that they've taken on this ST. But if the injury bug hits their staff thats when things could get ugly, w/ CC coming off surgey and Pettite/Kuroda not getting any younger and no Soriano behind Mo, things could get ugly in a hurry as they did for RS. Be honest as Yankee fan must be a little nervous how things could possibly go this yr?

    Never ever underestimate the resilient Yankees.

    With or without Tex, they'll still be in it. 

    Just watch.

    I heard it was the kind of thing that does NOT require surgery, just time. If the sheath were completely torn, or if the tendon was not stable, season ending surgery would be the only option. He does not have that.

     




    It will require surgery. Very goodchance he's donefor year.

    Without the depth on the bench as yrs past,

    U nailed it right there

    it's not about age

    it's about having a bench that can keep them fresh and replace when necessary

    which we don't have this yr


    as Yankee fan must be a little nervous how things could possibly go this yr

    not really gary

    my expectations aren't even high enough 2 B nervous when it comes to the division

    will always be  nervous when playing the sox no matter what the standings

    no change there

    I think U guys R in for a real treat this yr

    the bronx is burning pt 2

    would not be shocked if OD isn't a sell out

    against the sox no  less


    that said paul o'neil made some pretty good lemonade the other night

    talkin bout how there is some extra fun in not knowing if U R going to make the PO

    thing is

    I think we skipped right past the part of not knowing :(






    then again no one in the east is all that

    so everyone has a shot if 1 or 2 guys step up big

    except for maybe 08', the Yanks have probably been fortunate to escape mass injuries...there is probably more room for worry this time because the Yanks aren't as deep as other times they have faced injuries...most times you gotta be lucky also..

    Jeter said he doesn't see this as a setback. Doctors told him he would have occasional trouble with areas around broken ankle.

    Teixeira should just have surgery now and be ready at around August.  The Yankees will still be in the playoff hunt by the time Teixeira comes back.

    Zac, I'm probably not as pessimistic about Yanks chances as are you. I watch a lot of Yanks games here in CT. Youk has looked good, lost some weight driving ball very well. Melky Mesa young kid has looked good in ST could help in OF. I just think Yanks need to find 1B, not real optimistic about Tex getting back to soon. Heard alot of whispers about Morneau, if that were to happen and pitching staff does stay healthy things might not be so bleak. I'm your typical RS fan who knows better than to start digging a Yankee grave. But heard more bad news Jeter out of lineup w/ ankle bothering him. Claims its normal soreness that was to be expected, but Yanks can't afford for him to miss much time. At least AL East is wide open this year, no more Yankee or RS who will win division other WC, could be a 4-5 finish. Lets hope not.

    Do you have a link to prove that? I did read that his particular condition generally heals with time. Below is a quote from Cashman in an article by Matthews at ESPN. We'll see. Can't say I feel sorry for the Yankees.

    Yankees general manager Brian Cashman was surprised to hear Teixeira say the injury was to the tendon sheath, a covering that keeps the wrist tendon in place, rather than to the tendon itself. He called Yankees team doctor Chris Ahmad, who told him the injury was a partially torn tendon sheath but a stable tendon, an injury that generally heals without surgery.

     

    "Ahmad told me if he had a fully torn sheath, it's automatic surgery, and if he had a partially torn sheath with an unstable tendon, it's automatic surgery,'' Cashman said. "This is a best-case scenario injury, the only one that can heal without surgery.''

    Historically the previous season is a substantial factor on the subsequent season, or even a cluster of seasons.
