Youk was the catalyst during the best 3-4 week stretch of last season. I'm glad we got him as he was a significant upgrade over Morel and Hudson and only cost us Lillibridge and Zach Stewart. It was fun for me to watch him grind out at bats and he seems like a good guy.

You provided slightly more value than what the Sox gave up, which was almost nothing. Best of luck.

Yep, I'll sure miss his plate discipline, considering the rest of the hackers we have here.

Thanks for temporarily relieving us of the third baseman hell we were in.

Youk had/has the range of the statue at 3B; his 'ole' slide got old fast. Thankfully we don't play the Yankees the first half of the season, because the madness that would've ensued due to the team not bunting - nor trying to bunt - would've been painful (again).

I think we have a better solution at a much better price.

Yankees were desperate, but $12 million for Youk is way too much, considering his falling average, bad knee, limited range.

Enjoy April and May while you're good/not hurt, but bring an umbrella starting in June when the Bleacher Creatures start raining **** on you.

He'll be traded or bench fodder by then, with ARod back.

I was hoping there was a way we could have made things work, but I can't blame you for taking the Yankees money. Thank for a good run here where you made things exciting. Beat the Tigers for us!
