I would have chosen the phrase "more betterer."

So, Youk ended up with a stat line of .258, 17 HR, 68 R, 80 RBI and 3 SB in 120 games last season. Guess I wasn't so crazy after all.

What are the chances he stays healthy this season? At MDC he's going at around 91 overall which is a touch earlier than I have him, and according to the MDP spreadsheet he's going 66 overall which is just crazy. Gonzo and Papi are holding down 1B/DH again so there's nowhere to hide him when his inevitable back/hip/hand/leg/ankle/hernia problems arise. Is he due for a third consecutive lunchbag letdown? Or will he improve on his career average of 487 ABs and/or return to his 300-400-550 days?

Youklis is the last of the 2nd tier 3B on my draft sheet and it is because of the injury risk. The move to 3B is a bad one for him and his injuries last year were old man injuries. I'd bet on that jerk Weeks to stay healthy before I'd bet on Youkilis.
