Any Boston fans have any info on the status of Youkilis? Is he going to be a full time first baseman or split time with Snow or Choi?

good question...I can even see Boston moving him to 3B if Lowell is really '05 Lowell.

The recent talk is Lowell will be on a short leash after his ST and Youkilis will be moved there if Lowell is struggling. For the meantime I think he will be platooned with Snow and maybe Choi at 1B.

They are very concerned about Lowell's bat speed (or lack thereof). It sounds like there are definite physical issues that go into Lowell version 2005 which may bode well for Youklis (and poorly for people like myself that were slightly bullish on Lowell in 2006). From the reports I've heard about Lowell in ST (particularly the bat speed concerns) I've already divested myself of that investment...didn't get him earlier than R18 in any drafts so I think you're better off dumping Lowell at this point if there are any worthwhile risks to take on the FA list.
