    Red Sox Trade Rumor

    http://www.boston.com/sports/basebal...things_41.html

    NEW YORK -- Theo Epstein just responded to an e-mail I sent him in regard to the Mark Teixeira trade rumors that have been floating around the past two days. The ESPN report was that Sox and Braves were discussing Teixeira for Kevin Youkilis and Craig Hansen.

    Asked if there was anything to it, Epstein responded, "No, not at all."
    Obviously denials mean nothing but I would love to see the look on Youk's ugly mug if he got shipped out of Boston.

    Youk (29 years old) is a better fielder then Tex (28 years old) and as equal hitter as well... Plus he can play third. NOT GOING TO HAPPEN!!

    Wouldnt happen without an extension and Boras is his agent so obviously hes going to hit the open market.

    Why would you trade a guy who gets on base as much as Youklis does anyway?

    This trade makes no sense. I believe Epstein.

    Peter Gammons reported this and said the Red Sox declined the offer.
