No Youkilis? No Problem for Tribe
The Cleveland Indians dodged a major bullet over the weekend when general manager Chris Antonetti didn’t get suckered into making a trade for a washed-up Kevin Youkilis.
Many fans and media members believed the Tribe should pursue Youkilis because he bats from the right side and would have helped balance out the Indians’ primarily left-handed hitting lineup, one that has struggled against left-handed pitching this year. (And, after all, if you have heard of a particular player then they must be good, right?)
But Youkilis would have been a bad fit all the way around. To find out why, head over to The Cleveland Fan.
