Kevin Youkilis is headed to Japan.

Youkilis will earn a $2 million signing bonus, $2 million in base salary, plus $1 million in incentives on his new deal with the Rakuten Golden Eagles. 

The Uno Sports Tonight crew debates the likelihood that Youkilis enjoys Japan more than Lou Merloni did.

"I say zero percent," says Merloni. "He's going over there with his wife, his seven year old and his one year old. I couldn't imagine living over there with kids."

Youkilis spent 8 1/2 seasons with the Red Sox before being traded to the White Sox. He spent last year with the Yankees, though missed most of the season due to injury. 

How do you think Youkilis will fare in Japan?
