On Kevin Youkilis
Thunder and lightning have been crackling all around Boston for the past few days. Why? Because Red Sox Nation is not happy.
Trading Kevin Youkilis to the Chicago White Sox has been/still is a divisive decision in the Bean -- enough to elicit a collective "Nooooooo" from Youk fans across New England. There are numerous opinions being aired on the deal, but some of the most interesting thus far are these: SUPPORT and AGAINST. No matter what side you fall on (personally, I want Youkilis to remain active on the Red Sox), this decision could make for an addition to this collection of surprising Fenway events from History.com.
For more about Fenway, but from an architectural perspective, check out this awesome feature on the park's official site. It allows you to see original plans for the park and how it has changed throughout the years. Very cool.
Til next time!
ADDED: The Curse of Youkilis, a tongue-in-cheek look at the first post-trade game the Sox played.
