In response to Alibiike's comment:

Youkilis comes back, Ross does not.

We are in need of a 1B now and what better choice to bring back the Youk now that BV is gone.

He belongs in Boston and we could use his glove at 1B, and his stick in the line-up.

As far as Ross goes, if the Sox were interested in keeping him, they would have done a deal before the end of the season, IMO.

If they don't pick a manager soon, you increase the risk of patching together a team, similar to last year.

Whether Youk comes back or not they need to stabilize the front line quickly......
