10 Red Sox players who joined the Evil Empire

Kevin Youkilis will be manning third base for the Yankees come Opening Day, giving Red Sox fans that much more to chafe over when thinking about their counterparts in the Bronx.

Kevin Youkilis? God Help Me

It's not official, yet. I'm hanging my hat on that sentence, hoping it never changes, hoping Kevin Youkilis fails his physical and doesn't sign with the Yankees after all. My reasons for this are far from rational. Rational reasons are ones like:* With the Youkilis signing ($12 million) and what they still have to pay Alex Rodriguez, the Yankees have $40 million tied...

Pirates Continue to Discuss Trading Hanrahan

Prior to signing Jason Grilli, there were rumors that the Pittsburgh Pirates were shopping Joel Hanrahan. After the signing of Grilli, a Hanrahan deal only made more sense.

Around the League...

Some quick hits... - Frankly, i have no idea what effect this has on anything, but the Cubs are one of three teams to have opted out of the MLB/StubHub agreement that was recently renewed. I imagine tickets for Wrigley will still be available on StubHub, but not in some official capacity. I also imagine the Ricketts didn't like seeing tickets going for $2 on game day on StubHub...
