Unless you have been totally out of the loop the past 24 hours, you already know that the Boston Red Sox have traded fan favorite Kevin Youkilis to the Chicago White Sox. To make the trade even more tough to swallow, Youk helped contribute to the Red Sox win yesterday and walked off the field to a standing ovation. Red Sox Nation took to Twitter to let the front office and Bobby Valentine know just how pissed off they were with this latest move.

Hate to break it to all of the delusional Red Sox fans, but Youk just wasn’t that good anymore. His time has passed and his numbers have been showing it. It might just be more nostalgic frustrations, but his .233 average just wasn’t cutting it.

He was showing some signs of turning the corner this week during their 4 game winning streak, bumping his average from .215 up to .233. However, there was clearly more on the table than just numbers and many fans think it comes down to beleaguered manager Bobby Valentine. They have been on his ass all season and things just got worse. Check out some hateful tweets towards Bobby, the Red Sox and even a few towards Youk below.
