Rockies Eyeing Youk?

A report in the Denver Post suggests that Kevin Youkilis might be a good fit for the 2012 Rockies—citing speculation that he may be "available". The versatile fan favorite could be a Black September casualty, even though it was injuries—not beer or chicken—that kept him from contributing much in 2011. A lot depends on what the Sox do with Papi. If they decide to move on from "The Greatest Clutch Hitter In Red Sox History", they may need Youk to DH while getting an Aramis Ramirez type to play third everyday.
