Kevin Youkilis was the talk of Red Sox Nation on Friday afternoon, as the third baseman was involved in some trade rumors around the league.

By night’s end, the fervor surrounding Youkilis had quieted thanks to Ben Cherington‘s denial of the trade rumors. However, Youk’s still a hot commodity around the league, and the Red Sox do have a logjam at third considering how well Will Middlebrooks is playing.

Nick Cafardo of The Boston Globe talked about Youkilis’ trade value and some potential moves for the three-time All Star.
