Default The Kevin Youkilis Appeciation Thread

He'll be hitting the DL about the same time A-Roid will be coming off it.

However, thanks, Youk, for the spark you gave us in late June- August.

Thanks for the few, but fondly remembered memories, Youk.

Yes. He delivered about 2 inspiring weeks (when sox needed a jolt) but that was all she wrote, no more gas in the can. Over-rated, overpaid, ex-Boston, but a nice guy and even got a shout out from Obama, who thanked Boston pubicly for the "gift". Something tells me White Sox will actually find needle in haystack for 3rd base, will find a guy with Crede hands, Melton bat, and Ventura clutch. Just a hunch.

Thanks for the help while he was in town but clearly he wasn't any type of a long term answer...not with his health.

Thanks for providing stability at 3B and for winning a handful of games for us before the knee injury kind of took over.

Default When Youk and Yanks visits Fenway

Youk sounds like Yank. Be interesting to see the Red Sox fan response at Fenway. They worshipped him in Boston.

Thanks for the jump start burst of energy for the first month or so before you reverted to the mean for the rest of the year, Youk. I don't think you were ever part of the long term plan, but you gave us hope.

And who else but the Yankees would spend $12M on a 3 month lease / insurance policy?

He was better than I thought he'd be. For two weeks. Carried the team. And a better guy than I thought. But his body is broken down. $12M? Gasp.

What's funny is that NYYfans and SOSH are saying pretty much the identical things. Good threads if you have 15min to kill
