THE YANKEES SIGN YOUKALIS
Kevin Youkalis decided that the Bronx is where he wants to play for at least one year. Youkalis is not the first Red Sox player to move south. He is definitely the most un-liked Red Sox to move south just ask Joba who has thrown at Youkalis' head on a number of occasions.
With A-Rod out for who knows how long, there was a gaping hole at third. Youkalis is a right handed bat that plays third and also can play first. Youkalis is a great addition to the line-up and a great addition to the locker room. Youkalis is one of those players that will go deep into the count and he comes to play everyday.
The Yankees are trying to be frugal so they are signing players to one year contracts. Ichiro is signed for a year as well as Petitte, Rivera and Kuroda.
Youkalis will bring something to the Yankees that they have not had in a long time. Youkalis is a baseball star of the Jewish faith. The last time Jewish Yankees fans have had someone to relate to was when Ron Blomberg became baseball's first designated hitter.
Welcome to the Bronx Yooook!!!!
