Kevin Youkilis has agreed to a one-year, $12 million contract with the New York Yankees, which is going to be a strange visual for everyone involved. Youkilis made his name as a goateed Red Sox stalwart -- now, he'll be clean-shaven and on the Red Sox's most hated rivals. Will he be the answer the Yankees are looking for at third base?

Switching sides

Youkilis spent some time with the White Sox after being traded by the Red Sox last season, so it's not like he's going directly from one rival to another.


Would you blame a former player for your favorite team for signing with your team's rival after he'd been traded?
