Free agent corner infielder is “seriously considering” a
one-year $12 million offer from the Yankees that he views as “very legitimate,”
reports Wallace Matthews of ESPN New York.
According to Joe Bick, Kevin Youkilis' agent, the
33-year-old is "seriously considering" an offer from the Yankees that
Bick and his client consider "very legitimate," reportedly an offer
for one year at $12 million.
The Yankees interest in available third baseman increased
significantly when they discovered veteran Alex Rodriguez would require hip
surgery and could miss as much as half of the 2013 season. While Youkilis would
slide in as the team’s regular at the hot corner to start the year, he could

option at designated hitter.
Beyond the Yankees, Youkilis and his agent are also said to
be considering at least one other offer, which Wallace notes could be from ...

A Guest Post by a good friend of Off The Bench:
Ever since I liked baseball, I have always hated the New York Yankees. I chose to be a Red Sox fan in first grade, which was a highly controversial decision considering I grew up in the Westchester, New York suburbs. Even my dad was a Yankees fan. A vitriolic hatred of the Yankees that I shared with Mets fans was the only support I...

Johnny Damon knows a thing or two about what it’s like to trade in red socks for pinstripes. So with Kevin Youkilis reportedly set to join the Yankees one year after starting his 2012 season with the Red Sox, Damon is an expert on the subject.
Damon, who left Boston for New York just a little more than a year after helping the Red Sox win the World Series in 2004, was asked how...
On the day the Redsocks traded Kevin Youkilis to the Whitesocks, a voice inside me knew he'd someday be a Yankee. I didn't think it would happen this fast, but it was a certainty: Before Youk's career ended, we would get him. BTW, it's the same knee-buckling sense of predestination that I have about Big Papi: He'll wear pinstripes someday. It's as if the ghost...

Boston fans went off the wall on Twitter, wishing injury, death and more on Youk. Take @The_Saucy_rossy for example: kevin youkilis you were my favorite player on the sox. Now I hope you get hit by a bus f*ggot.
It got worse. Take...
