Oh Kevin….say it ain’t so! Well it looks like it is so. Another former Red Sox player is going to play in the pinstripes. Today the New York Yankees have agreed to a one-year, $12-million contract with the third baseman. Kevin Youkilis played for the Red Sox and White Sox last year. He had a batting average of .235 with 19 home runs and 60 RBI’s last season. I would think Kevin would have preferred if Bobby Valentine was still coaching the Sox, so he could stick it in the face of Valentine next year.
Youkilis will play third base for the injured Alex Rodriguez this upcoming season. I am a Red Sox fan and it is always hard to see a good player who was a former Red Sox to play for the Yankees, but that is the nature of the business aspect in sports. I can’t wait to see Fenway Park’s reaction when Kevin plays as a New York Yankee. I am guessing there may be a few YOUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUK chants.
