Suppose Kevin Youkilis was made available and the Red Sox are willing to eat some of his $12 million salary. Would you give up Perez and his anti-Tribe fan commentary? The Indians desperately need a right-handed hitter with some pop and Vinnie Pestano has the stuff to be a successful closer. Youk could platoon with Hafner at DH or play first until the Indians have a lead and defensive specialist Kotchman takes over. Perez is signed and arbitration eligible through 2014.
