Re: Youkilis wanted to play for the Reds
Youkilis is exactly the type of hitter the Reds have a shortage of: a guy who gets on base. Other than Dunn, the Reds are a team of free swingers with relatively low OBP (Bruce and perhaps Votto may be exceptions to that rule). The Reds need a few tablesetters, guys who will "clog the bases." A couple of more good righthanded bats would also be nice.
