Although I am an avid sports fan, soccer has never really been a favorite of mine. I enjoy watching World Cup matches, because the stakes are high, and you’re watching the best of the best playing matches that matter. But in general, like most Americans, the lack of scoring in soccer invariably leaves me wanting more.

Yankees Offer Youkilis $12 Million

12/08/2012 - 19:00

The New York Yankees reportedly offered Jewish free agent Kevin Youkilis a one-year, $12 million contract.

Youkilis, a three-time All Star for the Boston Red Sox before being traded to the Chicago White Sox in June, was leaning toward accepting the offer, a source told The New York Times.

The offer would have Youkilis play third base, replacing Alex Rodriguez, who is expected to be sidelined until next June because of hip surgery. The Cleveland Indians are also said to be interested in signing Youkilis, according to the Times.
