08:23 AM ET 12.07 | Kevin Youkilis returned to Boston Thursday night for a fundraiser, but he had yet to make any sort of decision public. [Youkilis] did not tip his hand about whether he will be playing with the Yankees next season or the Indians or somewhere else. "I've got good choices, I can't deny it, I have good choices and good people," said Youkilis. "Any time anyone wants you, that's a good choice. Some guys are sitting at home and want a job and not getting it." Youkilis is believed to have a one-year offer from the Yankees worth $12 million, as well as an offer from the Indians. ... "A lot of teams want me right now and we have a handful of good choices. I've just got to sit down with my family and agent and all that stuff. In due time, we'll find out."

Regardless of the money, it will be so sad if he goes to the Pinstripes just to keep a spot warm for ARod.

The fact that Boston wasn't interested in bringing him back even though they needed a 1B, should send up a red flag to these teams.

Would going to Cleveland be any better at this point?

It pains me to think that Lex Luthor could be playing 3rd base for the Yankees. This guy has been a thorn in their side for years. Still, I may prefer him over that bum, A-Rod.

A cowboy appeared before St. Peter at the Pearly Gates.
'Have you ever done anything of particular merit?' St. Peter asked.

'Well, I can think of one thing,' the cowboy offered.
'On a trip to the Black Hills out in South Dakota , I came upon a gang of bikers who were threatening a young woman. I directed them to leave her alone, but they wouldn't listen.
So, I approached the largest and most tattooed biker and smacked him in the face, kicked his bike over, ripped out his nose ring, and threw it on the ground. I yelled, 'Now, back off or I'll kick the crap out of all of you!

St. Peter was impressed, 'When did this happen?'
'Couple of minutes ago.'
