Sources: Kevin Youkilis to Yankees
Former Boston Red Sox third baseman Kevin Youkilis has verbally agreed to become a New York Yankee, according to sources.
The deal is expected to be for one-year and $12 million, according to officials with knowledge of the talks.
Youkilis, who will turn 34 in March, will play third base for the Yankees in place of the injured Alex Rodriguez. In 2012, Youkilis hit .235 with 19 homers and 60 RBIs in 111 games. After feuding with then-Boston manager Bobby Valentine, Youkilis spent most of the season with the Chicago White Sox.Trade Bucket: Hidden Content

If the Yankees goal is to have an old player past his prime at every position, they're well on their way.Click banner for tradelist

I think he did this because no one else in their right mind would offer him $12mil even for a year.

He looks like he's on the downside of his career now but it will hurt a little to see him in pinstripes as a Red Sox fan. Can't blame him though for taking them up on the blatant overpay

It looks like he did this because the New York Yankees nowadays seem to have a very beneficial AARP program for its elder players :)

Youkillus is probably gay so they have to reward him for his lifestyle choice.

If they want to sign him, so be it. But $12 million is absurd. They could have called up a minor leaguer or let Nunez fill in and beat the .235 average and low-teens HR marks. He may be a clubhouse guy but that alone does not deserve a paycheck like that.
