    Sure the 2009 Yankee lineup was scary good. Could you imagine being the opposing SP and going over the scouting report facing that lineup?

    Two homers against Tampa today in left field and one error aside had a decent defensive game. Hitting has looked sharp for a long time now, even some cheers of Youk (still not sure how that would go down on opening day in YS) when his second homer cleared the fences.

    Be fantastic to see him do that against the Sox!

    Watched the game today. Didn't see significant changes to his stance/swing. Did he make changes and abandon them already?

    Our cleanup hitter. You just know they're mocking us in Boston.

    Re: 2013 Kevin Youkilis Performance Thread

    the Red Sox and their fans mocking the Yankees over anything at this point in the season would be kind of... well, stupid, considering what's gone on with them in recent years.

    Not all of them are mocking. Hard to say whether I or my Red Sox fan friends are sadder at the sight of Youkilis batting cleanup for the Yankees.

    There seems to be a one way street when it comes to players on the Yankees and Sox moving, with guys going from Boston to NY, but not so much NY to Boston. Any theories on why that is?

    In ST on the radio broadcasts John and Suzyn were saying that Kevin Long had looked at video on Youk throughout his career to date. Long has tried to adapt his stance to what it was originally in Boston when he was hitting for fun. The point being over the last few years he's changed his stance trying to chase hits when he's been struggling. Long has tried to revert it to something more comfortable for Youk and effective, it worked during ST and is still working (another homer in Detroit 05/04/13), so whatever Kevin Long changed keep it that way!

    I loved that 2009 team. Imagine if we put that group together in say 2006 instead of 2009. There would have been multiple championships.

    Re: 2013 Kevin Youkilis Performance Thread

    Youk has been pretty damn good so far. It would be amazing if he could keep this up all season.

    Re: 2013 Kevin Youkilis Performance Thread

    I love how this guy has been hitting. And I'm happy for it too, because as long as he's hitting, there's focus on that positive and less rehashing of everything else.

    It may be a day late and a dollar short but my dream lineup can come true.

    Cano
    A-Rod
    Youkilis

    If Cano is being Cano, Youk should bat second given his on base skill.

    1) Jeter
    2) Youk
    3) Cano
    4) A-Rod
    5) Tex
    6) Granderson
    7) Cervelli
    8) Ichiro/ Wells
    9) Gardner

    Youk has really surprised me so far. I don't know if it's proving he still can get the job done or another change of scenery, but it's working. Couldn't stand him when he was with the Red Sox, but glad to have him now!

    Because Boston has absolutely no loyalty to its players. None. Start to show a little decline, and off you go.

    Clemens
    Boggs
    Garciaparra
    Damon
    Ramirez
    Greenwell

    All these guys were the face of the franchise at one point or another. None of them finished their careers in Boston. I swear, they haven't had a retirement ceremony in Fenway Park since Carl Yastrzemski.

    And their fan base thinks they're going to hold on to Jacoby Ellsbury. Ha.

    normally, this lineup would be uninspiring given age and injury, but considering what we've been trotting out there lately, reading this made me cum a little

    I like Youk's response:
    http://espn.go.com/blog/new-york/yan...r-and-youkilis
    NO BIG DEAL TO YOUKILIS: Cleveland reliever Carlos Carrasco received an eight-game suspension for throwing at Yankees third baseman Kevin Youkilis earlier this week. Youkilis didn't have much to say on the matter.

    "Doesn't have anything to do with my life," Youkilis said.
