    Yankees, Youkilis Having Discussions

    The Yankees have spoken with Kevin Youkilis' agent, reports Jack Curry of the YES Network (Twitter link). According to Curry, Youkilis would consider a one-year deal if the salary was at a "premium amount." - mlbtraderumors
    The Yankees need for a third baseman is well documented.
    Youkilis' willingness to take a one year deal seems almost too good to be true.
    I would definitely sign him in Arod's absence. The Yankees need corner infield help

    I wouldn't mind this. I know a lot of Yankees fans don't exactly like the guy but he is a tough player that knows how to get on base.

    | .372 AVG | 0 HR | 2 RBI | 6 SB | .438 OBP | .442 SLG | .394 wOBA |

    OBP from 2009-2012, respectively.

    .413, .411, .373, .336

    Production has also seriously leveled off, as well as batting average.

    In other words, he better be a 1-year deal at a REASONABLE amount, not a PREMIUM one. Also, I feel like Joba/Arod as well as most Yankee fans hate him.

    Bad fit.

    No thanks.

    A career .384 OBP is pretty damn good. His numbers were skewed from his brief time spent in Boston last year where he lost motivation to play for the likes of Bobby V. Once he landed in Chicago, his numbers steadily increased.

    Terrible idea, hopefully this is nothing but Cash giving the media (and us) something to talk about. Besides my general disdain of Youk, the last thing we need is another declining player (which he IS); And his batting stance is the worst, js.

    If anything is skewed it is career numbers to judge a player on his CURRENT skill level. He sucked in Boston and was a smudge better in Chicago. Not to mention he wants premium. Pass.

    For a one year contract with not too many other viable options out there, I think it is worth considering.

    Youka coming here for one-year, shows me he wants to be on a winning team.

    Exactly. A one year deal I wouldn't mind at all.

    Sure. Consider it. Keppinger is a far better option.

    Yankees also can collect insurance on Arod's deal if he is injured for an entire season.

    According to Rosenthal's source, the Yanks are insured for more than 70% of A-Rod's salary. Wallace Matthews of ESPNNewYork.com hears that the Yanks could even recoup at least 75% and up to 100% of the money remaining on Rodriguez's deal, but the third baseman would have to be disabled for a full season before the team could begin collecting on the policy.

    There are very little options available on the Third Base / First Base Market and Youkilis is the best player available. He did well in Chicago and would play well in New York. Debate between Youkilis and Keppinger but getting one is a must.

    I'm not arguing that. But you need to consider different players and keep options open if he happens to sign elsewhere.

    Not the biggest fan of Youkilis. His production has decreased as he has aged and I'd rather the team pursue a guy who can actually hit for average.
