Being traded for two nobodies has got to crush Kevin Youkilis' confidence. But going home and banging Bradys sister probably picks it right back up. So Im sure he’ll be ok.
Anyway, I know Ive been saying that the Red Sox should trade Kevin Youkilis for a sack of used baseball gloves but I was just busting balls. Kevin Youkilis and $5.5 million to the White Sox for a AAA pitcher and a utility infielder is a friggin steal (Red Sox will pay $5.5 million of the remaining $8 million on Youkilis' contract). The White Sox basically got Kevin Youkilis for free.
The pitcher in the deal, Zach Stewart, sucks so badly that he was sent to the minors last Tuesday. That’s not a joke. And the utility infielder, Brent Lillibridge, is batting .175 this season. Boy does Ben Cherington look like a dick right now.
So, this is how Kevin Youkilis’ career ends in Boston--he bitches and moans about playing time and gets traded for two nobodies. Not exactly an honorable way to go out.
