Anything. ANYTHING to get rid of that guy. Plus, a guy with potential is ALWAYS nice in Chicago. As long as he doesn't get traded away in a year for some 30+ fat-ass on the ropes.

Youkilis can still hit, and be a strong contributor. Trust me.

I know. I was thinking the same thing. Maybe they'll let him keep a moustache, though.

Kind of surprised Youk got 12 Mil after hitting .236. Seems like about double what he should have got. Good for him, he'll be on the DL by May and collecting 12M from Shallow Hal and Mr. Hankey.

Yea 12 mil for him is ridiculous. How much money do the Yankees have committed to aging infielders long last their prime?

Apparently the Angels are the latest team making a big push for Hamilton.

I'd be okay with that. But only if they sign him for like 10 years and 300 million.

That's going to be an old and expensive Angels team in a few years. Especially once Trout hits arbitration (on the expensive side)! But hey, now one of Bourjos and Trumbo is pretty expendable for them.

Dave Cameron of fangraphs thinks this could free the Angels up to send Bourjos to the Mets in a package for RA Dickey. That makes too much sense for it not to be rattling through the minds of their respective GMs.

It's gonna be awfully expensive for this team to try to keep Mike Trout in a few years...

He won't be a FA until Hamilton is off the books, anyways.

Well, you were right. It will still be awfully expensive to keep him in a few years. I bet both him and Harper will break A-Rod's record contract (if they reach FA).

He'll be crazy expensive before he's a free agent though, thanks to arbitration. I bet he'll be making more than 20 million in arbitration if he's even 90% of what he was last year for the next couple years.
