Kevin Youkilis Changes Sox
Kevin Youkilis has officially been traded to the Chicago White Sox. If you can recall, and I hope you do, I called this over two weeks ago. Youk was sent to the South Side for pitcher Zack Stewart and utility player Brent Lillibridge. The fantasy advice I'm giving you is simple: if you need a corner infielder give Youkilis a look. I'm not telling you to go out and trade for him or spend a lot of your FAB budget on him, just give him a look if you absolutely need the help.
Over the past three seasons he hit .160 at U.S. Cellular Field (25 at bats). The only reason I could see Youk putting up legit numbers would be out of spite towards Boston management. Kevin Youkilis is a very prideful player who wants to prove his doubters wrong. Keep an eye on the White Sox making another move or two before the trade deadline.
