Youk Revises Potential Travel Plans To The Far East
Mindful of the possibility that his old nemesis Bobby Valentinemight be U.S. Ambassador to Japan, Kevin Youkilis is adjusting his options accordingly. This afternoon, Youk TWEETED out "Looks like I won't be able to visit Japan for the next 4 years." Indeed. We all remember the multiple run-ins between The Greek God Of Walks and Bobby V back in the snake-bitten 2012 season. Valentine famously questioned Youk's "effort" during an early-season slump. Of course, the last thing you could ever question about Youkilis was effort. Will Middlebrooks eventually took Youk's job at third and he was later shipped off to the White Sox. Can this whole Red Sox thing get any curiouser? Doubtful.
