      This thread may have been premature. I was told they had signed him but apparently they are still in talks.

        I looked on mlb.com and couldn't find anything.

          I heard it was a one year deal. But looking now I don't see anything.

            The Yanks apparently offered one year 12 million.

              Wouldn't be the first time. There've been dozens of players who've gone from one team to the other. Luis Tiant, Doug Mientkiewicz, Johnny Damon, Wade Boggs, Roger Clemens...

                And you just don't see ex-Yankees signing with the Red Sox.
                Using a stolen chant from Boston Celtics fans whenever an L.A. team is playing up there just reeks of inferiority complex.

                If hitting a baseball is the toughest thing to do in sports, then pitching must be the easiest thing to do in sports.

                      ^ Didn't the two Davids (Cone and Wells) also go in that direction? Although I think Boomer later returned to the Yankees.

                            Considering the Red Sox bailed on Youk I would think he'd play at a discount for NY, nevermind the crazy $12m he was offered.

                              Kevin Youkilis's decision is, at heart, a choice between playing for Cleveland/Francona at 2/18 or playing for the Yankees at 1 for $12m


                              Good to see the Indians willing to spend money this offseason as they were in on Victorino, are still in on Swisher and gave Youkilis an offer to think about.
