I had to laugh to keep from cringing when my Red Sox friend Johnny pointed out to me Brian Cashman's latest pontificating on the state of the Yankees. Specifically, my friend cited Cashman telling the media yesterday this shocking news about Kevin Youkilis: that "back issues usually don’t get better." Gee, you think? Next thing you know, Cash will figure out that jumping out of an airplane could possibly result in injury!It's amazing -- when the Yankees got off to a good start this year, Cashman got all the credit. Now that they're struggling, it's all apparently issues beyond Fredo's control. You know, bad luck like a guy who has been chronically injured for the last five years, missing significant time on the DL every single year, having his back bother him again, and feel even worse after he played every inning in the Yankees 18-inning game last week. Shocking, I'll tell you. Shocking. When it comes to Youkilis, let me use Hollywood writer Nikki...

The New York Yankees had to get active on the trade and free
agent markets earlier than expected this season, as spring training injuries
caused the team to make multiple transactions before the regular season even
began. General manager Brian Cashman told Bryan Hoch of MLB.com that he doesn’t
expect that level of busyness to change with the summer trade season approaching...
Yankees hitting coach Kevin Long said what other people were thinking on Saturday. General manager Brian Cashman would prefer if he hadn’t.
Long said Saturday that he wasn’t sure Mark Teixeira’s wrist “has been right” since the slugger came off the disabled list on May 31. That drew the ire of Cashman, who didn’t like that his hitting coach came out and said such to a...
Another one bites the dust. And, another one.After Mark Teixeira and Kevin Youkilis returned to the DL yesterday, I began to wonder if the end is near for the New York Yankees. Injury-wise, they have had setback after setback. It is as if they are climbing up a greased pole. Could the grease finally be getting the best of them?Youkilis obviously has not worked out for the Yankees...

When plan A fails there is always plan B….right?
How does this relate to the current state of the New York Yankees?
Well, I think it is about time for Yankees to look beyond their All-Star disabled list (DL).
The hope that Jeter, A-Rod, Granderson, Youkilis, and Teixeira will ever be healthy enough to play at the level expected...
The Yankees have announced that Kevin Youkilis will have back surgery Thursday. He will be out a minimum of 10-12 weeks. Effectively, this ends his brief career with The Evil Ones.
Kevin Youkilis needs back surgery and Mark Teixeira has returned to the 15-day disabled list with an aching right wrist, the latest injury setbacks for the depleted New York Yankees.
The team made the announcements Tuesday before playing the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Youkilis will miss at least 10-12 weeks after he has surgery in California on Thursday. He had gone back on the DL last...
It seems as if every time the Yankees gain someone back from the disabled list, another player is moved onto it. Here are a few updates on the injured:
Mark Teixeira: Although Joe Girardi said that Mark Teixeira will need at least a week to rest his wrist, GM Brian Cashman may want to give him a few weeks. According to Andy McCullough of the Newark Star Ledger, Cashman is leaning...
Slumping Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira could be sidelined a while longer because of his ailing right wrist.
"I haven't done anything, but I'm leaning toward the disabled list," New York general manager Brian Cashman said Monday on a conference call.
Teixeira missed the first 53 games of the season because of a wrist injury. The All-Star slugger is hitting...
