'No Comment' On Youkilis Speaks Volumes

Sometimes a "no comment" is all you need to read the handwriting on the wall. When the Globe's Nick Cafardo queried Red Sox GM Ben Cherington about the status of trade talks involving Kevin Youkilis, he got back the non-committal response. So, put your Youk shirt up on eBay, folks. So far, a whole host of teams have reportedly shown interest in the Sox fan favorite—including the Dodgers, White Sox, Indians, D-backs, and Phillies. The theory is that—given everything—the Sox will have to eat a substantial amount of Youk's remaining salary to get a decent prospect or two back.
