Chan-Ho to DL
The Yankees have placed Chan-Ho Park on the Disabled List. By placing Park on it, the Yankees hope to keep the list from being blown away by the wind. Now, obviously no one wants to see Park on the DL this early in the season, but at least it's only April (better to have your injuries early rather than late, think A-Rod, Posada, and Cervelli last year), and we're not paying him all that much (though still more than the entire payroll of the Marlins, Royals, and Pirates combined). Park has a history of hamstring injuries dating all the way back to last season, so you can bet the Yankees will be looking to cash in on the lucrative insurance they no doubt took out when they signed him.
