Why trading Kevin Youkilis is un-American!

Okay. So mayyyybe OverTheMonster doesn’t call it “un-American.”

First, if you trade Youkilis for pitching, who plays third base?

Right? No more Jed Lowrie to bail you out of THAT one, eh, commies?

Mike Aviles? Really?

I’d like to SEE YOU TRY.

For the proverbial young and good starter the price is going to be younger players with cost controlled years in return. A 33 year old third baseman with a laundry list of injuries and $13 million due to him just isn’t going to cut it.

Um. I don’t know how to respond to that. On one hand, I want to defend Youkie from the “old” implication. On the other hand, I want you all to think he’s worthless so you don’t trade him. Conundrum, hmmm?

And… WHAT? He’s listed on this site as the number three riskiest vet? WHAT?

When you draft him, make sure that you have a respectable back up because Youk will cost you a fairly decent draft pick.

It was a fluke year, guys! A fluke!

Youk- uninjured- has consistency. He literally throws everything he has into every move on the diamond. Watch A-Gonz slow jog to first. And then watch Youkilis. Whether it looks like they’re going for the catch or not, he barrels forward. Because he actually wants to win.

Don’t make him take that desire elsewhere. Because I imagine he’s a lot scarier when he’s barreling AT you.

    I agree. Youk stays in Boston. Period. Or else there’s war. Or something.

    Yoooooouk is a tool but we should keep him. I like most of his make-up as a player accept the whole injury thing.

    If we can get Garza for him I might change my mind,

    (ducking)

    Youk will stay until Middlebrooks is ready. Youk will stay for this season and next and if Will, somehow, surpasses him in power and defense and beardness, then I will, with my hand on my heart, say goodbye to him. Come on, Soxy. Surely a young stud like Middlebrooks, once he’s proved his on-field prowess and ability to summon facial hair from somewhere beyond the veil, will count you on his bandwagon?

      I’m sorry, S.D., but as the future Mrs. Youkilis, I can’t talk like that. And, as a human, you shouldn’t either. Kevin Youkilis is immortal. I’m not sure why the world hasn’t figured that out.
      And really, Middlebrooks? Beating Youk at beard? Puh-leeze.
