    A-Roid out until May

    Per ESPN. Hip surgery.

    Figures, right after I take the guy in my fantasy draft.

    Could a deal involving EE be possible? Just saying... I'm bored

    Hypothetical- EE for Swisher and cash. Kepp takes over 3rd, instantly clearing up a corner spot for a prospect's mid season call up or to start the 2010 season.

    No.
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    I'm just bored and waiting for the season to start. Thanks for not giving me a 12 page answer, just to get a no though.

    I do suspect that in 2 years EE will be dealt, to make room for a Frazier or Francisco but it should be for prospects.

    What do the Yanks do with EE after April?

    Reports are that he has a cyst and a torn hip labrum and that the cyst was drained and he will try to play through it, but will eventually need the surgery.

    Couldn't happen to a nicer guy or a better well loved organization.
