Youk Re-Joins Theo As Cubs Special Assistant

Lake Shore Drive is looking more and more like Storrow Drive. Theo Epstein has added yet another former Red Sox employee to his staff by hiring Kevin Youkilis as a Special Assistant. Youk played last year in Japan and then announced his retirement. 'The Greek God Of Walks' spent nine years in Carmine Hose, hitting .287 with 133 HRs. He garnered an on-base percentage of .388 during his time in Boston. The brother-in-law of Super Bowl XLIX MVP Tom Brady is already at Cubs camp—trying to help Theo end the 107-year World Series Championship drought of the North Siders. Youk knows something about ending droughts.
