Dropped Rolen for Youk and I'm not regretting it at all. He's been great, and he homered again tonight ;-D ;-D

ESPN has him ranked as 3rd for 1b, fantasy value wise so far.

Not sure how they do the rankings but it seems accurate..

i just tried to sell him high and buy low on mariano rivera, but he came back with eric gagne for youkilis instead.

i guess i'll just ride him out.

Youk is quickly becoming one of my favorite non-Brave players. Love this guy.

Will Clark loves Kevin Youkilis.

I've played Youk for his last 101 ab's for a .416 clip. He's single handedly kept my team in contention. All my SP were from the waiver wire (Maine, Shields, Lincecum, Meche who's going back, Garland?) except for Clemens who is poised to be my hero.

i'm starting to kind of change my mind about youkilis.

i think he may be developing into something like the next michael young (without the 2b or ss eligibility).

that's basically what he did last year. His upside is much greater than that

His run numbers were deflated because they batted him at the bottom of the lineup much of the year.

Even if he regresses and only hits about .280 this year, he'll still score well over 100 runs due to his OBP skills and who he's hitting behind.

I think what you posted is a conservative estimate, and I would have said that on April 1.

I would be surprised if he scored less than 120 runs, had less than 15 homers, or hit under .300 for the year.

what are you talking about? check the #s before saying that's what he basically did last year. last year he had 100 runs, 13 hrs, 72 rbis, 5 sbs, and .279 avg. how is that 110 runs, 15+hrs, 80+ rbis, 5+sbs, and .300 avg?

and i didn't say that's what he will do this year. he may do better, he may do worse. my entire post said he may be turning into a michael young type of hitter, who is a safe bet for 110 15+ 80+ 5+ .300.
