Don’t hold your breath waiting for Tex, Alex and DJ to come to the Yankees’ rescue, writes Bill Madden.

Well ain't he a rain of sunshine on a cloudy day.
Seems to me that ARod has already proven that you can return from this hip injury, at least to the extent it's the same or similar to the other hip injury.
As for Tex, the article seems to justify my impression since the injury that it was foolish to try the no-surgery strategy. I had wondered if that was just hindsight on my part, but apparently experts see the same problem. I suppose this is a no-harm, no-foul mistake by the Yankees unless it cuts into Tex's 14 season.
And Jeter not coming back this year? I'll believe it when I see it.
I see the Yanks cut loose Reid Brignac. So is he going to be the fall guy that everyone places the blame on for the Yanks struggles in 2013?
Hey, come 2019, 2020 the refrain will be the same: It's always A Rod's fault.
Expect DJ back. He was the only one with a normal injury. Range be damned he plays short. Nix is not a major league regular. Alex, on the other hand, has to get past the law. And if he does, unfortunately, "Hips don't lie". He is short term at best.
