Our GM's by committee have apparently solved one of the big questions for next season - first base. As of now, the Red Sox will be platooning Kevin Youkilis and J.T. Snow. I really like this situation and it will be great to see Youk playing on a regular basis. I predict that this season, Youkilis will shed his nickname of the past, "The Greek God of Walks", and adopt a new nickname: "The Hungarian God of Hits". (Kevin isn't even Greek!) Youkilis had a 0.8051 OPS in 2005, compared with Millar's 0.7532. Granted Youkilis had fewer at bats but when you incorporate his bats from Pawtucket, his OPS rises to 0.967. In comparison, Manny's OPS his rookie year was 0.502. I am by no means assuring that Youkilis is going to become a Ramirez-type hitter (it's waaaaay too early for that), but it is great to see such solid numbers for a rookie. Add into the picture an OBP hovering around .400, Youkilis isn't going to look too shabby in a line-up batting before Big Papi and Ramirez.
