    How does anything he said in the interview, equate to being a part of a clubhouse cancer or not a great guy, clubhouse or ortherwise. First day in pinstripes, why not give him a chance?

     




     

    Exactly my point.

    First day in Pinstripes and it sounds like he's pining for his days as a beantowne player.

    [/QUOTE]

    IDK about pining, Babe, as much as gratitude and fond memories of days gone by. My reference to his first day in pinstripes, was more toward before moving forward in the Yankee organization, he was putting his days in Boston in context, for the fans, as much as himself. Regardless, if you give him a chance, you may have a change of heart. The things fans dispise about players on other teams, have a way of diminishing, once they're wearing the uniform you root for.

    Yankees razz Youkilis for Red Sox remarks
    AP /  February 15, 2013



    TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Teammates of Kevin Youkilis were waiting to razz him when the third baseman walked into the New York Yankees clubhouse on Friday.

    Youkilis made the back page of two New York newspapers for telling reporters at his first day of spring training that ‘‘I'll always be a Red Sox.’’

    ‘‘I was basically defining that, as a player, I'll be a Red Sox, and a White Sox, and a Yankee for life,’’ Youkilis said Friday. ‘‘Three storied franchises. I'm excited to be part of this, and be with the Yankees.

    ‘‘Trust me, there’s no way that was meant to say my heart is in Boston or anything like that. My heart is here with the Yankees.’’

    After spending 8 1/2 years in Boston and winning a pair of World Series titles, Youkilis was traded from the Red Sox to the Chicago White Sox last June. He signed with the Yankees in December.

    Youkilis admitted the comment ‘‘by itself looks terrible.’’

    ‘‘I've got to watch what I say,’’ Youkilis said. ‘‘It hit me hard.’’

    Youkilis took part in his first workout with the Yankees on Thursday after flying from California to Tampa.

    ‘‘I think guys are having fun with it, joking around,’’ Youkilis said.

    A three-time All-Star, Youkilis figures to be the Yankees’ starting third baseman for at least the first half of the season while Alex Rodriguez recovers from hip surgery. Youkilis agreed to a $12 million, one-year contract.

    Youkilis also made headlines during the offseason with Yankees’ pitcher Joba Chamberlain. The two had feuded in the past over high-and-tight fastballs.

    After Youkilis agreed to join the Yankees, the reliever left him a voice mail. Chamberlain said in January he had not heard back, then revealed this month he had received a text.

    The pair got together Friday before workouts for New York’s pitchers and catchers. Both feel the matter got blown out of proportion.

    ‘‘Everything’s good,’’ Youkilis said. ‘‘We are all teammates here.’’

    Chamberlain downplayed the feud.

    ‘‘He just came over and said hello, and I welcomed him,’’ Chamberlain said. ‘‘Like I told you all before, it’s done now. I hope we don’t have to talk about this anymore. It’s over with. We don’t live in the past. We live in the present.’’

    New York will host the Red Sox in the regular-season opener at Yankee Stadium on April 1.

    ‘‘I'm excited to play against them opening day,’’ Youkilis said. ‘‘I'm excited to put on the pinstripes, the full pinstripes.’’

    Notes: New York’s position players are scheduled to report Sunday. ... RHP Michael Pineda (shoulder surgery) threw 25 pitches in his second bullpen session. He is expected to be out until at least June.end of story marker

    Re: Kevin Youkilis:

    Kevin might be one of those rare successful athletes that is more likeable outside of the game than in it...his competitveness sometimes led to unwise choices and he always came off badly outside of Boston - but from everything I have read/heard about him as a person, he seems like a good guy...

     

    plus he's related to tom brady...case closed

    Babe, while I understood why fans, other than Red Sox, didn't like him, I think you'll come to realize he's a good guy.  Friend of mine works at the Casino in CT, where Youk does his annual youk for kids charity benefit. Said he never meet anyone who had  dealings with him over the years, say anything but positive things about him. Then, met him himself and agreed.

    Even in pinstripes, Youk will always be a Red Sox to me, also, even if I can't root him. He was home grown, one of our own and  gave it all he had, wearing the Red sox uniform.

     

     



    I disagree and now see how he is not a great clubhouse guy.

     

    Regardless of how he truly feels, it was his first day in Pinstripes.

    He should have said how happy he was to put on a Yankee uniform and to be in a position to help a contending team win, and left it at that.

    I can understand how bosox fans likie what he said, but exactly how does it benefit him in his current environment? It doesn't.

    Maybe he really is part of the cancer that has affected the sawx clubhouse in recent years.

    I'm sure they do get it, except for Joba.  ;-)

    Love him or hate him, rest assured that you are getting a player who leaves it all out on the field every game, and approaches every at bat like it's the last out of the WS.

    It's really going to hurt watching him play in pinstripes.

    ...where Yankee fans controlled what was said by Sox fans, and abused and attacked Sox fans who went against their guidelines while slamming the Sox at the same time. Good riddance to that board. Maybe it will encourage more Sox fans to post here so we wouldn't be outnumbered. I don't know why you'd mind though as you already have you and your pals set up on other Sox boards. Maybe it's time for Sox fans to have their own boards, you know, like Yankee fans do on all their boards.
