MLB Network just tweeted as well... As a Sox fan, I love this. I hated the way he acted this past year and hopefully all the other pink hats in Boston can stop giving him a GD standing ovation everytime he comes back

Its like Boggs all over again. Except Boggs was a better player. My wife fell in love watching Youk play the first time we went to Boston (Nomar's last game there). She is pretty angry at him! I respect his choice to play where he wants, but I still don't have to like him playing there!

I'm a Yankee fan, and I just threw up in my mouth. Only thing worse would be if they signed Pedro.

Nah...I think it's hilarious. When Youk was on the Red Sox all Yankees fans could say was how much they hated his guts, his name was pukeilis, how they hoped Joba would finally hit him in the head, how the Yankees would never in a million years sign a player like him...

Now they are acting like he is their savior...it's comical to say the least...

I'd be far angrier if I were a Yankee fan.

I'll be interested to see if the Sox sign Swisher if they can't get Hamilton.

+1... This was a bum the Sox traded at the deadline to get literally nothing in return and to get out from under a similar contract last season (1 yr/12 mil... Middlebrooks had a bit to do with that as well) This is just a microcosm of how AWFUL the 2012-13 FA market is

Way too much money, but I guess that's what happens when there are no third baseman on the market. They should've been bigger players for Reynolds in my opinion. he would've thrived with the power bat in Yankee Stadium.

Hoped it wouldn't happen but I can't say I'm gonna root against him when he's wearing my teams uni. My buddy brought up Boggs and Clemens, but that is totally different. Nowhere near the amount of venom for them compared to youk, Pedro, and varitek because the rivalry in the 80's wasn't what it was from 98-05 because the yanks stunk in the 80's.

Ummm...what?? I'm a Yankees fan and don't know a single person that is excited about this signing. This is even worse than Damon.

True. My friends have all sent me texts saying how awful this is, and how bad the Yanks are going to be in 13 as the team stands now. I don't think many real Yankee fans are happy about this.

WTF is wrong with the Yanks, we keep picking up nonsense! If he produces something then great but I don't see him pulling any rabbits out of his ass

No one in the nation cares about Youk. We dumped him on Chicago for literally nothing last year. Start practicing your Yoooouuuuukkk chants.

He probably didn't want to be plunked by Joba anymore. It's funny how angry I would have been really upset years ago but I'm much more well adjusted since the '04 and '07 Series wins(and especially the 0-3 comeback!)
