    Youk trade imminent?

    Sources -- Potential deal for Boston Red Sox 3B Kevin Youkilis nearing - ESPN Boston


    So... White Sox..

    I'm confused, everyone still wanting him as a 3B? *creak*creak* Oh, not the Tinman.

    But, even with Youkilis struggling this season, he's an upgrade over Orlando Hudson at this point.

    He could play while tethered to a back brace and he would still be an upgrade over Adam Kennedy and Juan Uribe.

    Alas, which is why it won't happen. It makes too much sense for Ned.

    It wouldn't be the first time the Dodgers acquired a player who had a falling out with the Red Sox midway through the season.

    Let us just hope that the Pirates don't get stuck with Andy Laroche out of this one.

    The Pirates, Dodgers, Diamondbacks and ChiSox all make sense for a Youkilis trade. He needs to be traded soon so he can re-focus and get back to being the OB machine he usually is. I think the Pirates would be a good fit because he would play 1B.

    Well, fuck. I guess I'll just have to settle for a panic trade for Garrett Jones.

    Lillibridge and Zack Stewart apparently. I figured they would get a spare arm out of the trade.

    Yikes, the Red Sox got nothing except salary relief. I think this will do the White Sox some good.

    Now it'll be interesting to see if Middlebrooks holds up and continues with his nice start. He has a pretty swing.

    Shit, I read this wrong. The White Sox are getting Youkilis AND cash! $5.5 million in fact. What the fuck are the Red Sox doing here? They give cash and get marginal talent in return? Good grief!
