Felger & Mazz: Smart Move To Get Rid Of Youkilis?
Felger and Massaroti opened the day discussing the Boston Red Sox and the trade of Kevin Youkilis to the Chicago White Sox.
Yesterday, the Sox sent Youkilis and $5.6 million of the $8 million remaining on his contract to the White Sox for 28 year-old utility player Brent Lillibridge and 25 year-old right-handed pitcher Zach Stewart.
Was it a smart move to get rid of Youkilis as quick as they did? Did the Sox get enough in return? How important was it for the Red Sox to eat a good chunk of Youk’s contract?
When it comes to last years collapse, who is to blame for the way things ended off the field? If Youkilis was the one that threw his team under the bus about the fried chicken and beer last year, how does that make him the bad guy?
Felger & Mazz went on talk about Youkilis’ final moments as a member of the Red Sox. How did the Fenway crowd know that this was the last time they would see Youk in a Red Sox uniform?
