Kevin Youkilis has long embodied the very essence of the Boston Red Sox. An underdog, a fighter; these are the things that spring to mind when you hear his name. As of yesterday, he is a member of the BoSox no longer, having been traded to Chicago and the AL Central-leading White Sox.
His tenure in Beantown ended in storybook fashion: a triple, followed by a curtain call and a standing ovation from the Fenway faithful. In the seventh inning manager Bobby Valentine was informed of the trade, and that marked the last inning for Youkilis. He was dealt to the ChiSox in exchange for utility-man Brent Lillibridge and pitcher Zach Stewart.
It didn’t have to end this way.
