I actually hope the Red Sox keep Youk. He's not THAT bad. If they can't get any value for him just make him a $12M bench player for now. He'll adjust.
I've always thought Youk had the same mentality as Clemens did, I see him bouncing back in a big way next season. He comes across as a jerk but I always loved having guys like him on my team.
I'll also come out and say this probably wouldn't be happening if the Sox hadn't chosen Bobby V to manage. Get rid of Bobby and keep Youk. They're gonna regret it if they give him away for peanuts.
Sometimes the best move is not to make one.
