Last September I was really angry, but now frankly I am disgusted with the management decisions that are being made and the team attitude.

Also frequently players have a place where they are playing, and then maintain their primary residence somewhere else. They are only playing in their home team location for about six months. They are in Florida for two months and the rest of the time they are on their own as far as location.

And he just got married about a month ago, too!! Wonder if that spoills some housing plans.. Oh, stupid me, I guess he gets paid enough that it's "small change" if he has to move.

I had heard this on the news here in PA and almost cried. What a great person and, I feel, a great loss to the Sox!

Bad timing for selfish me... I live in Oregon. Sox are coming to Seattle next weekend. I pay big$$ for tix on Friday night right by 3rd base, just so I can be *that* close to Youk... I am sad.

It's now a done deal....he was traded today to the White Sox... for an outfielder, a pitcher and some cash... I always hate when I see that THEY gave cash for a player...I feel like it's the final insult.

His last play was phenomenal...he hit a triple and was replaced with a pinch hit runner... he came off and was given a standing applause by the fans (of course...we loved him) and by his teammates and coaches (including Johnny Valentine). Then Valentine made him run out and take a standing O. I'm sure everyone knew at that moment that he was gone. It's so sad. But, baseball is a business...I hope that they haven't made a mistake...but time marches on... HE'S SO OLD!!!! (33) emoticon

I cant imagine the team without Youk.....like as a player and a person.

My daughter and son in law drove to a Boston game and managed to get sits on the green monster. They have been trying ever since those seats went up. I was thrilled for them and jealous at the same time....lol

There are too many trade rumors for all of them to be fake. I'm going to see the Sox in Seattle next weekend and can't believe that I might not see Youk playing. Even spent a few extra bucks to get seats right near 3rd for one of the games. I'm glad Boston got a chance to say goodbye to Youk, and if he's leaving, he went out with a hell of a bang!!!

Here it's like its going to happen, but just a matter of when. They said he got such a great response from the fans because they thought it might be his last game in a red sox uniform. The problem is that we have Gonzoles on first and then along comes Middlebrooks to cover third while Youk was on the DL, and he has been hitting like a hero Between Nava and Middlebrooks the new comers are batting up a storm. I don't want Youk to go either, but I do understand the problem they have.

Here I sit in Southern Florida, Tornado Watch going on, it's pouring, thundering and lightning and I'm watching the Sox on MLB... I just heard something that has me really upset! The color guy was talking about Youk and the wonderful greeting he got from the fans when he came up to bat...he was relating how Bobby Valentine discussed Youk's situation and how he told him what was going on.... Youk said "I have NOT heard a word...no one has told me ANYTHING!! That's about the gist of it...what do you folks think?? I know my feelings about the guy...he's not only given his energy to the team, he's put his body on the line more times than I can count!! What the heck is going on??

HELP!! If this is NOT so, then I need to know...but, why would Valentine "create" a situation like that? emoticon
