When Kevin Youkilis was removed from the Red Sox game on Sunday afternoon, it was an emotional goodbye for fans and teammates to part ways with Youk.
The Red Sox received a couple of lesser known players in Zach Stewart and Brent Lillibridge in return. While Red Sox Nation is still dealing with the fact that Youkilis is no longer apart of the Red Sox, this young White Sox fan is taking the news incredibly hard. Lillibridge may not be a household name in Boston and likely won’t have the fan base that Youk did, but rest assured he has a fan in this youngster. It kind of reminds me of myself when Wayne Gretzky was traded from the Oilers to the LA Kings. Yes, I admit to that and I was roughly the same age.
