Swindal may have lost chance to take over Yankees
ESPN.com news services

TAMPA, Fla. -- George Steinbrenner's daughter filed divorce papers this week against her husband, Steve Swindal, a move that appears to end his chance to take over as head of the New York Yankees.

Jennifer Swindal filed the papers Tuesday in Hillsborough County Circuit Court's family law department, Yankees spokesman Howard Rubenstein said Wednesday. Rubenstein said the papers cited "irreconcilable differences."

"Steve and Jenny Swindal announced today that they are amicably ending their marriage of 23 years," Rubenstein said in a statement. "Although their marriage is dissolving, they remain friends and maintain a strong mutual respect. They are devoted to their two children and will make them their shared focus."

Reached by telephone, Swindal said he didn't want to comment beyond the statement or address his role with the team.

In June 2005, Steinbrenner said Swindal eventually would succeed him as head of the Yankees. Swindal currently is a Yankees general partner and chairman of Yankee Global Enterprises LLC. The New York Times, citing a source with direct knowledge of the situation, reported on Wednesday that Steinbrenner now has no intention of promoting Swindal, but removing him from the team altogether could be complicated since he is a partial owner of the club.

Poor bastid. I actually picked him in the Wharfball league draft, hoping he'd have a decent comeback.

.....dropped him today.

Chuck, you may also reconsider who you picked up to replace him as well.:

Indians' Lee out 4-6 weeks with abdominal injury:

WINTER HAVEN, Fla. -- Cleveland Indians pitcher Cliff Lee will start the season on the disabled list because of an abdomen strain.

The lefty, who went 14-11 with a 4.40 ERA last season and is 46-24 since 2004, felt the strain in his right abdomen during a throwing session early in spring training.

"The reality is I can't pitch until mid-April," Lee said after being scratched from a scheduled throwing session when he felt discomfort during training-room exercises Sunday morning.

The Indians hope Lee, their No. 3 starter, will at least be able to resume throwing for the final two weeks of training camp.

"The symptoms persist," trainer Lonnie Soloff said. "Cliff won't throw for seven to 10 days. Then we'll initiate a return-to-throw program. We're approaching it as a four-to-six week rehab."

This is the third straight year that a key member of the Indians' starting rotation will be sidelined in April. No. 1 starter C.C. Sabathia was out for a month in both 2005 and 2006 with a strained muscle in his right side.

"It's frustrating to watch everybody getting ready and I'm left behind a little bit," Lee said. "If this was late in the season, I'd probably try to keep pitching through it. There's no sense in doing something that could make this worse and really miss a lot of time."

Lee said he followed the same regimen this winter and was surprised to feel the strain in his second bullpen session early in camp.

"It's just a slight strain that I can feel on my follow-through," Lee said. "I told the trainers when I first felt it because of my history. They thought it would be a three-day thing."

Lee played catch a few days later and felt fine. When he tossed the ball on the sidelines the next day, however, the ache returned after about 20-30 throws and he was shut down again.

Right-hander Fausto Carmona likely will take Lee's spot in the starting rotation, though veteran Paul Byrd or young Jeremy Sowers could be moved into the third spot. Sowers, who went 7-4 in 14 starts after being called up from the minors last June, is listed as the fourth starter. Byrd, 36, who was 10-9 with a 4.88 ERA a year ago, is No. 5.

Another shocker on the DL front:

Gagne to start on DL to get more work

SURPRISE, Ariz. -- Eric Gagne will start the season on the disabled list for the Texas Rangers, a move the team is making to give the closer more time to come back from elbow and back operations.

The Rangers said Gagne hasn't had any health setbacks. The 2003 NL Cy Young Award winner has pitched only 15 1-3 innings over the past two seasons.

"I feel pretty good, but I think this is going to help the team," Gagne said after throwing 15 pitches in a minor league game Thursday. "We are here to have a successful season and make the playoffs."

This is the third straight season since his dominating run as the Los Angeles Dodgers' closer that Gagne will be on the disabled list before pitching.

Gagne had elbow surgery in June 2005, then another operation last April to remove a nerve from his pitching elbow. He had surgery last July to repair a herniated disk in his lower back.

Akinori Otsuka, who converted 32 of 36 saves last season, will handle the closing duties until Gagne returns.

The move will be retroactive to Wednesday, meaning Gagne could rejoin the Rangers on April 13 for the start of a series in Seattle. Gagne will pitch for Double-A Frisco and Triple-A Oklahoma until then, and will make back-to-back appearances before joining the Rangers.

"It's the right thing to do, not only for him, but for us," pitching coach Mark Connor said.

In his third and last "A" game appearance Tuesday, Gagne allowed four runs and five hits in one inning against San Diego. That was the same game, played in gusty winds, that No. 1 starter Kevin Millwood allowed 10 runs in 4 2-3 innings of a 24-7 Padres' victory.

For spring training, Gagne had a 15.00 ERA (five earned runs in three innings) with six strikeouts and six walks. He allowed a home run on the first pitch he threw.

Gagne had 152 saves from 2002-04, including all 55 chances in 2003, when he had a 1.20 ERA and won the Cy Young. He converted a major-league record 84 consecutive saves from August 2002 to July 2004.

The hard-throwing right-hander started 2005 on the DL, and last year he went to the DL without pitching a game less than a week after starting the season on the Dodgers roster.

After Los Angeles didn't exercise Gagne's $12 million option for 2007, the Rangers gave him a $6 million, one-year deal with the chance to make $5 more in performance bonuses.

Notes
Texas placed LHP John Rheinecker and INF Joaquin Arias on the DL. OF Jason Botts was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma, and INF Ramon Vazquez was reassigned to minor league camp.

Maybe I better not pick anyone else. Seems to be a curse.

Don't worry, I picked Lee in my other league and promptly dropped him as well.

Generally as a precaution i check up on all of my players on ESPN because they're a little more in depth than the yahoo thingie sometimes.

13 Minutes to first pitch!
Then it's opening day at Yankee Stadium tomorrw (Corey Lidles' widow and son throw out the first pitch) for Opening Day, and the Bros at the Beacon at night!
This is a first for me in all these years. Gonna try and sneak a nap in between.
I hope you all have a great and healthy competitive baseball season with your teams'.('cept when you play the yanks, of course).
God, I love this game!
