Boston Globe Offseason Overview:
Five Possibilities at First Base

"Do you want to measure [Kevin] Youkilis by what he is, or what he isn’t? If you choose the latter, then he falls woefully short of the big-bopping sluggers that traditionally have defined the first base position. Youkilis hit 13 home runs last season, which tied him for 10th among AL first basemen, with just a little more than a third of the home runs posted by Paul Konerko and Nick Swisher, leaders at the position with 35 apiece." -- Gordon Edes, Boston Globe Offseason Overview
