07:14 AM ET 06.18 | Brian Cashman has a full plate these days, one that includes leaning toward placing Mark Teixeira on the DL and renewed concern over Kevin Youkilis. [Cashman] hadn't heard anything about [Youkilis'] visit to a back specialist when he spoke with reporters on a conference call, but it was clear the general manager was concerned about the state of his third baseman's balky back. "Back issues usually don't get better," Cashman said. "They can, but they're very debilitating and hard to get a handle on. It's definitely a concern. As of right now, I'm not planning on him until they tell me I can plan on him." Youkilis was placed on the disabled list Friday with a lumbar strain after playing all 18 innings of Thursday's marathon loss in Oakland. He woke up with numbness in his foot and calf.

The former Greek god of walks really needs a beard, what a tough lid.

Shave your beard, lose your strength.

Indeed. It appears the guy that was hired to cover while the starter was hurt needs someone to cover for him.

And I'll say it now - Tex is done for the year. He should have had the surgery back in the spring. It was obvious the way he was hitting - or wasn't hitting - that the wrist wasn't right.

Ever buy an old used car and it breaks down right after you bought it?

If he was a horse he would be headed for the pasture, no, glue factory.

It was broken down before they bought it, they just didn't know it.

No kidding. And they are paying the guy a boat load of money. He's no bargain.

$12 million for a bad back.

Outstanding.

$12MM to be exact. For a guy that hit .235 last year. That's nuts.
