Youkilis Ducks Sunday's Red Sox-Empire Tilt

Just when we thought we could gauge The Nation's early reaction to Kevin Youkilis in the dreaded pinstripes, the new Yankee third baseman decided to skip today's clash of the titans. Pretty cowardly, we'd say. In any event, Jackie Bradley, Jr. will get the start in right-field—so we have something to look forward to. Here's the the Red Sox line-up: Jacoby Ellsbury, cf; Dustin Pedroia, 2b; Stephen Drew, ss; Mike Napoli, 1b; Daniel Nava, lf ; Will Middlebrooks, 3b; Jarrod Saltalamacchia, DH; David Ross, c; Jackie Bradley Jr., rf. Ryan Dempster will start.
