You've Got to Be Kidding Me!!
Really? Really? Just when it looks like the injury bug is flying away from Boston it takes away the clean up hitter for the season? Just when Bucholz, Ellsbury, and Beckett come back and Pedroia is just days away, the Sox will lose Youkilis for the rest of the season. A hit by pitch will have him out for the season because it tore a muscle in his thumb. This sucks. Youkilis has been one of the more consistant players for the Sox this year. The Red Sox lineup is going to need to step up from spot 1-9 to make up for it. And Lowell is going to need to continue to work hard at first base. Thank god he wasn't traded to Texas in the off season. He's the only hope for the Sox for the rest of the season. And offensively, Martinez and Ortiz are going to need to step up along with Lowell to try to make up for it. It's a tough road ahead for the Sox from here on out. To quote a former player from 7 years ago, "Boys, it's time to Cowboy Up!"
