i just calculated by AVG if i'd had Youk all year instead of Richie Sexson in my Util...i'd be 5 places higer in AVG in my 5x5 (and my runs lead would be 20 runs higher) :~(

oh well, i kept thinking i should pick him up and then someone else finally did :,-(

Youk has been absolutely nasty so far, currently ranked 13th in the entire player pool in standard 5x5 yahoo leagues. I wish he'd been high enough on my radar to draft or add as a FA before either occured in various leagues.

He's at his absolute peak value right now. If you can get a legit top 40 player for him, I would because in spite of his torrid start, realistically I see him finishing in the 50-70ish range when it comes to his final rank.

I case you haven't been paying attention, Youk is back at it. Tonight hitting his 8th homer. He is hitting 320 with 29 rbis. Time to sell high? Or is he going to avoid the second half fall off he experienced the last couple of years?

I've been offered Youk for Cliff Lee... I like Youk, but just can't pull the trigger. Talk about a couple of sell-highs...
