Boston Bloggers Want to Trade Youkilis

http://bosoxinjection.com/2011/10/18/offseason-changes-trade-kevin-youkilis/

Boston Bloggers are calling for the trade of Kevin Youkilis based on him being oft injured and a bad clubhouse person. Could he be a fit for the Angels though? Here are some interesting breakdowns of career stats (not just BA and RBI, Reagins):

 

Career Home(Boston) Stats .305/.401/.513 (OPS .914)
Career Away Stats .273/.381/.471 (OPS .852)

 

Career Batting 4th .298/.407/.530 (OPS .937)

 

Career RISP .328/.436/.554 (OPS .990)

 

At Angels Stadium .309/.411/.553 (OPS .964)
*3rd Highest OPS at any away stadium with 40
or more games played.

 

Career BABIP .329

 

Now I ask, could Youkilis be the .800+ OPS man we need for our line-up? I can't really speculate on the Clubhouse issues but with all the middle infielders we have, I would assume that Scioscia would give Youkilis enough off days to keep him fresh and healthier. He makes $12 Million in 2012 with a $13 Million Option in 2013 or a $1 Million Buyout.

 

Suppose our (insert name of future Angels GM) and new Boston GM Ben Cherington can see some common ground in swapping out their respective bad contracts(i.e. Wells and Lackey) with a few extra trimmings on the side.

 

Boston needs pitching and pitching prospects bad. Angels need depth in their rotation, a big bat, and room for Trout.

 

Pure speculation.

 

An intriguing idea regardless…
