Kevin Youkilis is famous for his unorthodox batting stance.
First, former Red Sox shortstop Mike Aviles poked fun at his ex-teammate's stance. Turns out, Angels reliever LaTroy Hawkins' daughter, Troi, is the latest to try her hand at imitating Youkilis.
If you compare it to Youkilis' stance, it's a pretty spot-on impression. Hawkins took the chance to post the picture of his daughter on Twitter and it should certainly get a crack out of Youkilis.

ON THE MARKET
It appeared like Dan Haren was getting traded to the Cubs, but that didn't go down. Instead, the pitcher is now a free agent.
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. They will face some fierce competition though, since the Rangers are interested in him also.
– Even though the White Sox declined Kevin Youkilis' option, they would...
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...
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...
Dan Haren became a free agent after the Los Angeles Angels failed to work out a trade and then declined the pitcher's 2013 option.
Haren, a three-time All-Star from 2007-09, gets a $3.5 million buyout under the deal, which included a $15.5 million club option for 2013.
Hours earlier on Friday, the Angels agreed to trade Haren to the Chicago Cubs for closer Carlos Marmol. But...
Well, that escalated (and then de-escalated) quickly.
There the Angels were on the verge of making a questionable deal sending Dan Haren to the Cubs for Carlos Marmol and before we knew it, the trade was called off (by the Cubs, no less!) and Haren's options was declined, leaving the Angels with nothing to show for what appeared to be a nice trade asset.
It was all just...
Free agency opens in just a few days and we've all already heard a great deal about who the Angels are interested in or should be interested in. In fact, we've probably heard these speculative suggestions more than any of us care to. Yet what nobody ever mentions are the guys that could interest the Angels but really shouldn't. As the Tony Reagins era taught us...
The Angels didn`t trade Dan Haren to the Cubs for Carlos Marmol on Friday night. But if they had, this would have been our reaction.
It's been a busy few days for the Los Angeles Angels (of Anaheim).
On Wednesday, the team traded one starting pitcher in Ervin Santana, sending him and cash to the Kansas City Royals for a minor league pitcher. On Friday, the team was back at it, sending Dan Haren to the Chicago Cubs in exchange for reliever Carlos Marmol, as first reported by the Chicago Sun...
Details are still trickling out, but it appears that the Angels have finally pulled the trigger on the inevitable Dan Haren trade. Multiple Spanish-language reports claim that Haren has been dealt to the Chicago Cubs for Carlos Marmol.
Carlos Marmol (Cubs) have been traded to the Angels. The pitcher confirms the move to @elcariberd. "Anaheim is a good team".
I've been a bit under the weather the past week so I have read very little Cubs related news with the exception of what's been posted on this site. I know Berselius mentioned something about people on his twitter feed being upset at the Cubs for failing to complete another trade. If I understood him [...]
