I think Mickey McDermott once slurred something similar but Babblefish isn’t working.
Asked whether it felt strange to move from one side of baseball’s most famous rivalry to the other, Youkilis made it clear that Boston still held a special place in his heart.
“To negate all the years I played for the Boston Red Sox and all the tradition, you look at all the stuff I have piled up at my house, to say I’d just throw it out the window, that’s not true,” Youkilis said. “I’ll always be a Red Sock.”
And Youkilis’ love for Boston goes beyond the diamond. His wife, Julie, is the sister of Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, and that, combined with his ties to two World Series teams, earns him a spot among Boston’s sports royalty.
“Guys play on different teams and that’s a part of your history; that’s a part of your life and you can’t change that,” Youkilis said. “It was great years in Boston. One bad half-year doesn’t take away from all the great years I had there and all the good things I’ve been able to do along the way and accomplish as a team, as an individual. It was great.”
