Youk to the Yankees?
So with Alex Rodriguez needing hip surgery as his body deals with the aftermath of years of rampant steriod use, the Yankees are looking for a third baseman.
Eric Chavez and Jeff Keppinger have already signed elsewhere, and one of the best third basemen on the market right now is...
The Yankees have reportedly offered him a one year, $12 million deal. A-Rod figures to be back in six months time, so Youkilis would be able to either fill the void, or provide a solid every day third baseman while A-Rod DH's so he doesn't break something while his body weakens from all the performance-enhancers he's pumped through his veins throughout his career.
No deal has been reached yet, but the Yankees seem desperate to make something. Its tacky, really.
