Boston Red Sox show more suspect management with Kevin Youkilis trade

Months ago I talked about the possibility of Kevin Youkilis being traded.  It was a move that the team should have made in the offseason when such things are easier to explain and easier to bear.  Losing a guy like Youk is never easy; he has more fire and determination than any ten guys in the league.  But this isn’t the Joe Morgan baseball league.  One can only go so far on...
