Normally in every baseball game I've ever watched the camera is offset a bit to the right. And yeah the Twins camera is a much wider shot too while being elevated. It's odd for sure.

Ya as far as I know they do that so teams don't have a perfect shot at pitches from monitors in the dugout and whatever else. The slightly to the right camera view I mean.

What do any Bosox fans here think of trading Youkilis for some pitching? Not even sure if there are any Boston fans here.

I mean you guys need some pitching help if you're going to do anything in this stacked AL East.

I wouldn't be against it. I love Youk but this Middlebrooks guy is nice and supposedly a big prospect. And with Beckett being a fuckhead and Bard not being in the pen where he belongs, I wouldn't hate that trade.

I'm Sox fan but I really hate the way the team has looked the past 3 or 4 years. Still like Aviles, Pedroia, Ortiz, Aceves, Ross and Swenney though.

But compared to their '04 team with Manny, Ortiz, Mueller, Millar, Pedro, Arroyo, Nixon, Damon, Varitek in his prime, Foulke, Schilling, Wake, Lowe, etc it just doesn't feel the same.

re: 2012 GIANTS...TROUT >

I've read the Chisox as a possible destination. If Youk can recover from his back ailments, that would give them another threatening bat in an already potentially dangerous lineup (Dunn, Konerko, and Youk is a scary prospect if all are on even if they all are pretty old). With the Valentine ruckus, perhaps Youk needs a change of scenery. I'm sure it sucks for a lot of Red Sox fans, but this is just how the business works.

I don't think they'd get a whole lot in return for Youkilis. I'd give 'em Wade Davis or some shit, but Youk wouldn't warrant and really great prospects or anything.

re: 2012 GIANTS...TROUT >

I agree WWF, but if MIddlebrooks can give production similar to Youk, then might as well get whatever pitching you can and play Middlebrooks. Boston's pitching is fucking terrible. Plus there's the whole morale and division in the clubhouse with Valentine v Youkilis. That's a cancer that will certainly kill this team, at least for this year. Eliminate that and work on rebuilding their pitching.

Paul DePodesta would say Youk is an incredibly valuable asset.
