Gabe ZaldivarPop Culture Lead WriterDecember 18, 2013

If you are of the half-glass-full demographic, you might consider this the perfect offseason for Kevin Youkilis to snag one more great contract.

The already thin third-base market is now down one Juan Uribe, so Youkilis may be the next great option for a team in need of an aging corner infielder. Those are always popular, right?    

MLB Contributor Gabe Zaldivar breaks down all the specifics concerning Youkilis’ looming free agency, including the pros and cons any team has to consider when jumping at the MLB player.

Consider that the cupboard is pretty bare at the moment, featuring the likes of Eric Chavez, Placido Polanco and Michael Young.

As you can see, despite his age and lingering injuries, Youkilis doesn’t seem so bad after all.

Get in on the discussion and offer your thoughts on Youkilis and where he fits best.
