    WEEI reporting that Andrew Bailey's injury is to the UCL (yes there is a UCL in the thumb too) of his thumb.
    That injury requires surgery, a cast for 4-6 weeks, and he's likely out 2-3 months

    One can only hope Bobby V would injure the UCL to his mouth and shut up for at least 2-3 months...

    According to Ham he could be out for even longer...

    Jarrod Saltamacchia had that surgery near the end of the 2010 season. The surgery typically takes 3-4 months of recovery time. Given that Bailey is a pitcher, it could be longer given that he would need time to rebuild his arm strength and regain his command.

    Heh, looks like two Yankee castoffs fighting for the closer role until Bard bombs out of the rotation.

    The rotation is a mess (Lester/Beckett/Laptop aren't even a top 5 in the league) and the bullpen is a disaster. This will probably blow up in my face, but I'm enjoying this a lot.

    On which planet?

    I'm just waiting for that ever-humble microphone and camera avoider, Schill, to not say anything about the ever-humble, non-taunting Valentine. Should be fun.

    That hurts. The Bailey acquisition was the best thing they did all offseason. My feeling is that the Aceves bubble will burst soon enough.

    It's an interesting situation that they've ended up with Aceves playing a key role in the bullpen and Bard in the rotation. Part of my feels like they're finally taking that "bridge year" and just trying to develop Bard as a starter, regardless of what happens to the pen in 2012

    Yeah, but a $170 million bridge to where? Organizationally, are you going to let an entire season go down the tubes to develop a starter? We are not talking about KC or Pittsburgh.

    I don't think their season hinges on Bard -- but they've got a few other holes they could have been more aggressive about filling (if they were "all-in" this year, do they really trade Scutaro?).

    To be clear, I don't think they are throwing in the towel, but they also don't seem to be putting everything into 2012

    And especially their September flame out

    They're essentially all in anyway in terms of payroll unless they really act out of character and blow through the luxury tax limit.

    The new CBA really hurt them because they are stuck w/ long term investments that limit their flexibility. They've always respected the luxury tax limit and the new CBA cements that in stone. Given the new strictures and the injuries and Valentine's tired act and this could be a very entertaining season for Yanks fans

    Well, they used the Scutaro $$$$ on Punto (a serviceable replacement for Scutaro) and Cody Ross, which addressed a direct need. So, I dont think the Scutaro trade has much to do with them being "all in" or not. I think the fact that they traded Lowrie (oft injured but productive) and Reddick, two decent prospects who could have filled needs, for Melancon and Bailey in the pen, and spent money on Ross shows that they were as "all in" as much as the FO would lead you to believe they are capable of (luxury tax threshold).

    Well, to my knowledge, Punto isn't going to be starting, but fair point about Ross. Generally, though, I can tell you that their offseason moves are facing significant questions up here (especially with the oft-injured Bailey hurt again), and expectations are the lowest they've been in years.
