When you lose 93 games, you've got to be open to any idea to improve your team. At least that seems to be the prevailing widsom in the Red Sox' camp, as Ben Cherington imparted during an interview with WEEI on Thursday. Case in point, when asked specifically about the chances of bringing back Kevin Youkilis, the GM remained open to the possibility, noting not just Youkilis' success in Boston, but calling him someone the organization has "respect" for. With Bobby Valentine now out of Fenway, such a scenario seems plausible, but neither side has actually broached the idea, according to ESPN Boston. "We're not shutting the door on talent of any kind," said Cherington. "[Youkilis is] a guy who has done well here in the past, but it's part of an offseason landscape and we're considering all sorts of alternatives at first base and other positions. Beyond that, I really can't comment on it but we're not goin...

Kevin Youkilis - The Greek god of what?

If you go to Kevin Youkilis' Baseball-reference.com's player page, one of the nicknames given there is the, "Greek God of Walks." The moniker, of course, goes back to the Moneyball story and Billy Beane who had his eye on Youkilis back in his minor league days. And then Youkilis burst on the scene for the Boston Red Sox in 2006 and was a major part of that team...

Hawkins took the chance to post the...

White Sox Trade Kenny Williams Jr.

The Chicago White Sox have certainly been an active team in baseball’s young offseason. The Sox have already bumped Kenny Williams upstairs from General Manager to Executive Vice President and signed Jake Peavy to a two-year extension that could work out if Peavy doesn’t fall apart physically as he has been known to do throughout his career. On Thursday, new GM Rick Hahn asserted...

White Sox GM Rick Hahn discusses the club’s direction

New White Sox General Manager Rick Hahn was very busy on Thursday. He did an interview on The Score, Chicago Tribune Live, and this conference call with us White Sox bloggers. It was all about getting the message out. He’s also been busy with transactions- re-signing Jake Peavy to a two year, $29 million dollar deal, and re-upping on Gavin Floyd. I still question the Peavy move...

New White Sox GM Rick Hahn’s first move: Trade Kenny Williams Jr.

On Thursday, Rick Hahn made his first notable transaction since taking over as the general manager of the Chicago White Sox a week ago. Chicago traded Kenny Williams Jr. to the Colorado Rockies for first baseman Mark Tracy. Under any normal circumstances it would be considered a small move, but it is interesting to note that Williams Jr. is the son of former White Sox GM Ken Williams...

Free Agent Watch: Zack Greinke and Kevin Youkilis

Here are the latest rumors regarding Free Agent in the Major Leagues: – The Angels' top priority this offseason is to re-sign right handed pitcher Zack Greinke according to Danny Knobler of CBSSports.com.

White Sox trade executive's son for minor leaguer

Less than a week after Rick Hahn began his new job as general manager of the Chicago White Sox, he traded the son of the man who formerly held his job.

Williams is the son of Ken Williams Sr., the team's former general manager who was...

Mike Napoli, Torii Hunter, Kevin Youkilis Among Top Choices for Red Sox in Free Agent Market (Photos)

The Red Sox have plenty of needs all over as the free agent market opens this MLB offseason, but they also have plenty of money to spend and options of where to spend it. With Adrian Gonzalez gone, the Sox are looking for a long-term plan at first base. That could mean a veteran holdover until a young player comes up, or Boston could look into the likes of 31-year...
