Peter Gammons reports the Red Sox have agreed to terms with Kevin Youkilis. Four years, $40 million for the top-notch first baseman who, according to FanGraphs, provided $41 million of value in the last two years alone. The deal would take Youkilis through his age 33 season, with an option for a fifth year. The Globe says it's not quite done.
Thanks to Brad for the heads up.
