Kevin Youkilis' Red Sox career ended Sunday at the spot he last called his own as a member of the Red Sox -- third base at Fenway Park.
The next two or three weeks could determine the Brewers' trajectory for the next two to three years, manager Ron Roenicke said Wednesday before his Brewers tried to salvage a win in their series against the National League Central-leading Reds.
Rumors involving a trade for Red Sox corner infielder Kevin Youkilis have picked up, but the Angels have stayed away from the fray despite the lack of power they've received from their third basemen.
The July 31 non-waiver Trade Deadline is more than a month away, and teams are probably weeks away from making the first significant swaps, but the Zack Greinke trade rumors are already starting to fly.
While the Dodgers continue to look for a starting pitcher, two losses to the A's have been a reminder that they need a run producer too. Someone like Houston's Carlos Lee, perhaps?
The Indians know that, by and large, Trade Deadline acquisitions are only one small part of the picture and can't necessarily be counted on for the kind of aggressive impact that would be provided by, say, another 27-homer season from Carlos Santana.
There don't seem to be any hidden agendas for a team with the National League's worst offense and its third-best pitching staff.
The beauty of July in an otherwise ugly summer is the opportunity it affords. And for these Cubs in this specific swapping season, the opportunity exists for significant strides.
