Great news Red Sox fans! Kevin Youkilis and the Boston Red Sox are expected to complete a new four-year contract that will keep Youkilis in a Red Sox uniform long term! With the new deal, Youkilis and the Red Sox will not go to salary arbitration which is a great thing.

The four-year deal is expected to be worth $10 million per year so $40 million total. The deal is pretty similar to the same one that second basemen Dustin Pedroia signed earlier in the off season. Youkilis hit .312 with 29 homers, 115 RBIs and a .569 slugging percentage in 2008 and finished third in MVP voting which Pedroia won.
