The Jewish Greek God of Long-Term Contracts

Okay, perhaps not Zeus, more like the Department of the Interior God, but great news for Kevin Youkilis, who signed a four-year, $41 million contract that covers his final two arbitration-eligible seasons and two free-agent years.

Youkilis has developed into an all-star level player at first base- at third base, he'd be in Hall of Fame discussions, should he continue at this level offensively and defensively for another 5-6 years (though his last start hurts him in terms of career totals).

Regardless, he is certainly in the discussion with Ryan Braun and Ian Kinsler for best Jewish player in the game today.
