What are you, damning nuts? Youk has been one of the most consistently strong producers on the team, at a bargain salary. He grinds out long at bats, getting starting pitchers out of the game early, and never goes to the plate with anything less than 110% effort. Plus, he was a very good 3rd baseman who when asked to play 1st came back after one offseason with gold-glove caliber skills. Who do you think holds the record for most errorles games and most chances without an error at 1st base for the sox? Yep... Youk. He broke both records held by Stuffy McInnis from the early 1920s. That guy has turned a lot of singles into outs. If you're gonna be talking turd about Youkilis, get your turd together or it's throwdown time. :flip: :lol:
Unfortunately Shan, the long haired sub-aru driving Ben and Jerry's eatin beatnick is correct. Youk is a damn good player. The nickname is pretty funny tho. :up:
Geez. You guys are so serious.
I agree that he's been a clutch player, but yesterday he was useless. That's all I was saying.
