    Alex Rodriguez. hip surgery. expected to miss most of 1st half

    The Yankees confirmed on Monday afternoon that Alex Rodriguez will have hip surgery in January to repair a torn labrum and bone impingement, and to correct a cyst.
    The procedure will take 4-6 months of recovery time, meaning A-Rod can already be ruled out for the start of the 2013 campaign and could be absent until late June. It's a tough blow to the Yankees, who owe the 37-year-old third baseman a whopping $114 million in salary over the next five seasons. They're sure to trade for or sign a third baseman within the next couple of weeks.
    tough loss. but ARod has been missing a good amount of games for while now.
    even once he does return, what would one expect from him?

    what do the Yankees do now?
    the Yankees could be in trouble? they now are likely going to need new people for 3B and catcher.

    Actually surprised this hasn't been mentioned yet.


    He needs to no longer play third base

    You stole the words right off of my keyboard.

    The Yankees will look to re-sign Chavez and then i am sure find another piece till A-Rod comes back.

    Is A-Rod done? It's hard to see him being much of a player after yet another pretty major surgery.

    He was decent last year, but I can't see him being much heading forward.

    something I have to wonder. why was this not known about at the end of the season back in October? maybe he could have potentially had this surgery in December or even November? sooner surgery, sooner return.
    this isn't just this time, it seems like something that happens every year. players wait and have surgery mid way through the offseason instead of the beginning.

    It's his left hip this time, after being his right hip in 2009.

    Age is catching up to A-Rod but that's to be expected considering the position he plays.

    with A-Rod out for the first half and jeter still in a boot, i think the Yankees might come calling for Yunel Escobar, they could really use the depth and help. In fact they might call for Nolasco too.

    Which? The news, or playing 3B? I've been talking about him not playing 3B for about 3 years. What a way to squander their investment.


    6/27/09: “We expect [Rondo] to play by the rules and be a leader as a point guard. We need him to be more of a leader,” Ainge said. “There were just a couple situations where he was late this year, I don’t know if he was sitting in his car, but showed up late and the rest of the team was there. We have team rules and you have to be on time. He was fined for being late, he said he was stuck in traffic, and it’s just unacceptable.”

    Some jerks never learn.....

    I don't think horrible is a strong enough word to describe it.

    It's going to be an interesting season in the AL East to say the least. So many positive and negative changes for every team so far.
