Rejected Offers For Kevin Youkilis (AL)

Now that Youk has been traded to the White Sox, I thought I’d take a look at the other offers that teams had on the table…

Orioles: Bullpen catcher / batting practice pitcher Rudy Arias.

Indians: Charles Nagy.

Tigers: Souvenir t-shirt and foam finger autographed by Justin Verlander’s niece.

Royals: Danny Duffy, Felipe Paulino, Joakim Soria, Blake Wood, and jar of elbow ligaments.

Angels: One rally monkey, deceased.

Twins: A couple of bats, balls, Danny Valencia, two hot dogs and some fries.

Yankees: Whichever team physician originally said Brett Gardner would be back from his injury in no time.

A’s: Kurt Suzuki, Daric Barton, and whatever Manny Ramirez rights we’re still holding onto.

Mariners: Naming rights for four bricks on the Safeco Field Fan Walk.

Rays: A weird wuss.

Rangers: One Chicken Express Nolan Ryan Snow Monkey. (Actual July 1st promotional giveaway.)

Blue Jays: Colby Rasmus, Brett Lawrie, and Brandon Morrow. Just kidding.

NL coming tomorrow.

    Seeing how the Sox season has gone, I’m thinking that the Rays trade is the one they should’ve taken.

    I would have even taken the Twins offer and maybe even Cleveland’s. Nagy is still probably a better arm than Dice-K or Bard

      Note: this is actually true. It’s a 13-and-under promotion so she hired her boss’s kid.

    If Youk had a full beard and dumped Brady’s sister he would have gotten much more in return.

    Did Navin Vaswani give you permission to use a Blue Jays reference? If not, I suggest you change you name and leave the country, maybe the entire hemisphere.
