Pittsburgh Now A Likely Landing Spot For Youk

Youk A Buc?

After multiple rumors of a Youkilis trade today to the White Sox, the Pirates have emerged as a late suitor of the popular Red Sox corner infielder. Youkilis could help the Bucs at both first and third—allowing players like Garret Jones to move to the outfield.

In case you haven't noticed, the Pirates have a better record than the Red Sox (37-32), and are just one game out of first place in the NL Central. Anyway, Youk could be gone by tonight's national broadcast of the Braves-Red Sox game.
