It was quite strange to see Kevin Youkilis wearing pinstripes and having his face cleanly shaven for the last 4 days as the Red Sox took 2 out of 3 against the Yankees. Youkilis commented on the Red Sox after the series ended on Thursday. Youkilis talked about the performances put in by Lester and Buchholz, Youk said "It’s only one start, so you really can’t tell, but I just think, as everyone knows, those are the guys that are going to make them click this year,If those guys go well, the team will do a lot better. If they don’t, it’s probably not going to be a good year for them. They’re the top dogs on that team". While Youkilis is a member of the Yankees this season he still remembers his 8 years with the Red Sox and has already said that he wishes them the best of luck this year. While Youkilis' comments were pretty much common knowledge it was nice to hear him actually say this and it was a surprise to hear him talk to the media about this. Do you think that this ...

Hiroki Kuroda just didn't look right after he was hit by that Shane Victorino single. Two hit-by-pitches and a trainer visit later, Kuroda exited the game with a bruised middle finger on his pitching hand. He is listed day-to-day.

The Red Sox won’t complain about the end result, but Boston’s offense left much to be desired during Friday’s 6-4 win over the Blue Jays.
The game should have never been in doubt, as the Red Sox jumped out to a 4-1 advantage and had plenty of opportunities to build a sizable lead. The offense sputtered at inopportune times, though, and it allowed the Jays to hang around until...
