And from Jack Curry: "Youkilis has herniated disc and will have surgery on Thursday. Will miss at least 10-12 weeks, the Yankees say."
Could be a late night:
 Time to break out the "If I didn't have bad luck I'd have no luck at all" blues.
Too early to pass judgement, but it looks like the Yanks are not going to get their money's worth on the Youklis deal. I think we can go back to hatin' on the guy now.
If he comes bak mid-Sept. what are we going to get out of him?
Tex might be done for the year too. Ouchie! The Yanks played above what they had on paper, but have fallen back to earth. Grandy and Jeter gotta get well soon, and Cervelli is the glue...just kidding.
Herniated disc?! I unfortunately have a (slightly) herniated disc in my upper back..when it 'slips' and hits the nerve the pain is extremely intense..Youk must be a tough bastard if he played through that.
