SweetSpot: Teams want Youkilis
In the video above, David Schoenfield and Chris Sprow discuss big names in trade rumors, including Boston's Kevin Youkilis. Sprow says that according to his sources, several teams are interested in Youk.
"He's a proven bat, and even when he's not swinging the bat, he's a proven walk. He'll get on base," says Sprow, who added that Youkilis could be the perfect fit for the L.A. Dodgers, who are lacking power from their corner infielders.
