    Re: Yankees sign Youkilis

    I wonder if there will be a presser ? If so, must see TV.
    What we can appreciate now is that the Yankees from 1996-2003 were even more extraordinary than we thought.

    Re: Yankees sign Youkilis

    Never did I ever think Youkilis, of all the former Sox players, think he would be a Yankee in his career.

    Let's see how this pans out...

    Not happy about this move (which isn't entirely rational, since he's probably about the best option at this point for '13). But it is what it is. All I know is he better up his game or it's going to be a really ugly year for him in the Bronx. Below league average offense and defense ain't gonna cut it.

    Wonder if Girardi will talk to him about the constant whining @ the plate?

    Dude, Girardi was a teammate of Paul O'niels. I think he's seen some whining in his day.

    Yeah $12M for Youk is a bit distateful. But as they say, there are no truely bad 1-year deals. I guess best case is he reverts to 2011 form and the Yanks get a ~125 OPS player. Worst case if they get the 2012 version from is Boston days last year.

    I agree with this. But not just about Youkilis.

    Given the sendoff this year's team got from the fans in the first two games of the ALCS, and the shift to a budget-conscious management style, I worry that the ugliness of Yankee fans toward their own team could be one of the big baseball stories of 2013. I can't escape this feeling that the abstract expectation of a championship is still there, but the concrete expectation for 2013 is a bad team, and the gap between those two has the fan base ready to rip this team to shreds at the first opportunity.

    Obviously if the team does well -- and I still think they're the best team in the division -- this may not be an issue. But I don't see the Stadium crowd having much patience for even short-term, small-sample disappointments, much less a prolonged losing streak.

    it's an inside joke... they know this, but they're poking fun at the "trader" sign that appeared at fenway shortly after damon signed with the yankees and made his first return

    but i like to think that they're illiterate

    Nah, the general Yankee Stadium crowd is probably too apathetic for ripping anything to shreds

    Joba's quest to kill Youkilis will have to be done in intra-squad games now. They should give them adjacent lockers.

    How does youk project in 2013 vs what arod would have projected to if healthy? Youk is on the decline and has a bad body but hes probably going to be mkre productive overall than arod would have been anyway.
