Making friends is easy the Kevin Youkilis way.
“I’ll always be a Red Sock,”
That’s nice. And who’s your favorite Yankee?
While Youkilis is being relied upon to play Rodriguez’s position, he cautioned against expectations that he will replace the three-time MVP’s production in the lineup.
“I don’t think you look at it like that,” Youkilis said. “You can’t be thinking about shoes to fill, because I’ll never be Alex Rodriguez. I mean, Alex Rodriguez is one of the best hitters of all time. I’m not going to be that same guy. But I can be a good major league player who can help the team win.”
Eric Chavez, I miss ya buddy.
