* All we are saying, is give Youk a chance. With the Alex Rodriguez debacle still waiting for a decision, the Yankees have expressed interest in re-signing Kevin Youkilis, who was, let’s face it, a bust last year, even if it wasn’t his fault for being injured. But Youkilis has intimated he would prefer playing somewhere closer to his California home.
Still, I’m sure if someone offered the 34-year-old infielder/DH a decent deal, he’d take it rather than retire.
* His son is working for the Daily Mail. It’s a steady job but he wants to be a “Paperback Writer.” (Last Beatle song reference, promise.)
