Jason WhitneyCould Kevin Youkilis be the Yankees third basemen to start next season? Could Brian Cashman bring in yet another former player from their arch nemesis Boston Red Sox? With the recent news of Alex Rodriguez being out for four to six months, the Yankees are now forced to bring in a third basemen that can hold down the fort while A-Rod is out. History doesn’t let us forget about Babe Ruth, but more recently Wade Boggs, Johnny Damon and Derek Lowe have all come to the Bronx to play for the New York Yankees. Kevin Youkilis was traded to the Chicago White Sox last season after a miserable first half of the year with Boston. He hit .235 with 19 home runs and drove in 60 RBIs combined between the two teams. Via NY Daily News: Brian Cashman has been in contact with the agent for the former Red Sox third baseman, putting the possibility in play that another former Yankees nemesis could wind up wearing pinstripes in the Bronx. Cashman said he’s “just looking to someone who can get there for three months at the very least,” though ideally he would prefer a player he could play the entire year. Given the lack of third base depth on the free agent market — in addition to Youkilis, the other interesting names include Jeff Keppinger, Marco Scutaro and Ian Stewart — Cashman could be forced to bring in a pair of players and use a platoon in A-Rod’s absence. Eric Chavez has decided to play again next season, but he isn’t likely to be an everyday player given his injury history. Sports-Kings - The Kings of Sports Lists

Yankees shortstop and renowned ladykiller Derek Jeter allegedly was spotted with swimsuit model Hannah Davis, an old flame, in a New York hotel bar on Monday night.
WHO'S THE BOSS?
Yankees GM Brian Cashman reportedly lacked the authority to make any offers to free agents at the winter meetings without consulting team ownership first.
Many people think Kevin Youkilis‘ days as a viable third baseman are over. But several baseball executives appear to disagree.
Youkilis “has multiple contract offers on the table,” according to Alex Speier of WEEI. Youkilis is weighing both high-dollar, one-year options and multiyear deals.
Youkilis was traded midway through last season from the Red Sox to the White Sox, who...

Shopworn, and juiceless, 10-time Silver Slugger Award winner Alex Rodriguez will undergo surgery on his left hip and likely won’t return to the diamond until roughly the All-Star break. The 37-year-old Rodriguez, who acquired the bynames “A-Fraud” and ******** Tits” … Continue reading →
There’s been a lot of wear on A-Rod’s hips over the years. Photo courtesy of flickr. The fantasy baseball value of Alex Rodriguez has certainly changed a lot over the last few seasons. At one point in his career, A-Rod was as elite as there was in the fantasy game, as a Triple Crown threat in a good lineup who could still nab between 15-25 steals a year, from the third base position...
Unfortunately, the best news to come out of the winter meetings so far is that Derek Jeter believes he should be ready for Opening Day. Jeter, 38, who was criticized last week for being "out of shape" after a picture was taken of him walking down the street with a bit of a gut, says he feels good and that he is moving around a lot better after recovering from ankle surgery...

Today the news broke of the need for New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez to undergo surgery for a torn labrum in his left hip that will keep him out of action for 4-6 months after he has the operation in early January.

The third base market continues to clear. Eric Chavez is now off the market, as the Diamondbacks signed the veteran to a one-year, $3 million deal Wednesday.
As the contract suggests, Chavez is unlikely to be a full-time player in Arizona. However, given the myriad struggles the club experienced at third base last season, we can expect Chavez to play a significant role. He hit .281...
