08:39 AM ET 03.24 | The first headache surfaced two weeks ago and Mariano Rivera described it as more than the garden variety discomfort that two aspirin could make disappear. "It was severe," Rivera told The Post yesterday morning in a George M. Steinbrenner Field dugout. The headaches weren't as strong, but they didn't go away. So Friday the Yankees sent baseball's all-time saves leader for tests to determine the cause of the headaches. "When you have issues you want to make sure everything is OK," Rivera said of the CAT-scan and blood test. "They said it seems like migraine headaches." Rivera said doctors had not yet told him how the headaches will be treated.

He needs to talk to Percy Harvin about migraine headaches. As soon as Chilly left Minnesota his migraines left also.

I may be in the minority, but with respect to the Yankees and the upcoming season, I'm not ready to "circle the wagons" just yet.

Are there enough wagons left to form a circle?

wiseup: Steinbrenner and Cashman are also having serious headaches trying to figure out how to field a competitive lineup because of all the serious and long term injuries.
