    He'd may take him in exchange for Balfour if BenC pays Youks salary.

    There is no way Beane takes Youk even up without a large amount of cash going to the A's.

    We wouldn't have many complaints--nor would he--if Youk were still playing 1B.  If he can get his swing back, he will be valuable to somebody else at 1B, where he has won one gold glove.

    Billy Beane would absolutely trade for Youk..IF the Sox pick up a lot of his contract.. Definately something to think about.  He got on-base extrordinaire Manny for a dime and he's wanted Youk forever.  If they have a good piece or two..Who know's?

     I'd unload him in an instant for some decent pitching, but why would any GM want a guy who has been injury prone of late and whose career appears to be on a downward slide. Cincinnati might have been a possibility, since Youk has expressed a desire to end his career there, but I think we've waited too long and I'm not sure that their pitching isn't as bad as ours.

    And you might try growing a sense of humor before you rip people.

    Pierre--rent Moneyball--enough said.
    Beane is not that  far away from a very competitive team. If he picks up Youk for the middle of the lineup to go with Reddick and Cespedes--speed with Crisp and Weeks. A good catcher in Suzuki. When Manny is ready in another 30 games as the DH.

    So the answer to the question would Beane take Youk--yes if the price is right and hopefully for Youks sake, to play first not third.

    I think that could be a july deal if Youk heats up and Middlebrooks stays hot.
