Just personal preference. The two aren't all that different in terms of production and both would benefit physically from a move to playing 1B full-time. I do like Francona's familiarity with Youkilis.
I'd just rather have 30 HRs than 18-20. I think we need that additional power element.
Edit: Yankees offer is 1 yr 12M, Indians (Rosenthal says "other teams") is 2/16 or 2/18.
