New York Yankees: How serious is the beard ban?Beard Ban in full effect It may not be news to you that the New York Yankees have banned the growth of facial hair on the team.

Re-Sign or Let Him Walk: Kevin Youkilis

Still to this day, it’s hard to imagine Kevin Youkilis playing in pinstripes as a member of the New York Yankees. In sort of a surprise move, Youkilis signed with the Yankees on a one-year, $12 million last winter as a fill-in for Alex Rodriguez at third base while he recovered from the hip surgery that the Yanks knew would keep him out for at least half the year. Like a lot of players...

Kevin Youkilis in Midseason Form

First Granderson, now Youkilis? Reports out of Yankee camp are that Youk is being scratched from their game today with a sore left oblique and will be reevaluated in a couple of days.

Open Letter to Kevin Youkilis: You're a fool if you think you can appease them

Dear Madam or Sir,I think it was Charles Dickens who said, when you're standing on the gallows, and the noose tightens around your windpipe, it's too late to say your sorry. The Mumford mob doesn't want to hear that you've changed your mind, you'll now support Justin Beiber for the Grammy. No, sir. They're in for some entertainment, and they're no going home without a show. It's...

Youk: No problem with Chamberlain

For any fans wondering if a little something extra came with Kevin Youkilis' one-year, $12 million deal with the Yankees — namely fireworks between the new Yankees third baseman and his old antagonist Joba Chamberlain — don't count on it. Yesterday, it sounded like Youkilis — who had officially become a New York Yankee — had put all the bad blood between the two new teammates and...

How Jewish Kevin Youkilis got a Greek last name

Kevin Youkilis has agreed to sign with the Yankees, which predictably has New York’s large Jewish population pretty excited. Youk, who spent his entire career with the Boston Red Sox until being traded to the Chicago White Sox last season, grew up in Cincinnati and is from a Jewish family. He had a Bar Mitzvah, and his father says the ballplayer can even read Hebrew. So how did...

BURY THE HATCHET

Joba reaches out to Kevin Youkilis

The biggest stumbling block in the signing of Kevin Youkilis to the New York Yankees might not have been the Indians or the Dodgers, it could have been the Yankees' own Joba Chamberlain. There's been a lot of bad blood between the two ever since the Yankees' reliever buzzed a couple of 99-mph fastball past his old Red Sox rival's head during his rookie year in 2007.  The following...
