For almost a decade if anyone heard Kevin Youkilis and New York Yankeesin the same sentence you can bet that it was not friendly banter.
So a week ago, when Yankees beat writer Bryan Hoch confirmed the rumor of the Yankees making a $12-million, one-year offer to the ex-Red Sox, I honestly didn’t know what to think.
At that point I became numb, as the Yankee brass is sticking with their decisions about how they want to run this baseball team whether anyone agrees with it or not.
This made hearing yesterday’s news, courtesy of a tweet from FOX SPORTS Ken Rosenthal confirming that Youkilis accepted the Yankees offer, much easier to fathom.

Look I do not hate the idea of Youkilis in a Yankee uniform in 2013; I just hate this off-season, as it has been one thing after another.
And you can’t blame...
