Youk signs

So, the Sox late yesterday announced that they had offered a one-year contract to Kevin Youkilis. Last year, he earned $450,000 - and for that paltry sum, the Red Sox got a Gold-Glove, nearly errorless first baseman - and one who came through BIG TIME offensively during the post-season .

This year, Youk gets a nice raise - $3 million. I think he was hoping for more - he'd asked for $3.75 in his arbitration filing - but that's still a very nice merit increase!

It's so great that we're going to have another year of these three infielders!

Oh, and my Red Sox tickets for the July series vs. the Angels arrived today!! WooHoo!!
