End Of An Era In Beantown As Red Sox Trade Youkilis To White Sox
Youkilis was traded to the White Sox in exchange for pitching prospect Zach Stewart and utility player Brent Lillibridge, according to a White Sox official familiar with the deal.
The Red Sox will also pick up a good portion of the $8 million that Youkilis is owed.
The third baseman bid a teary-eyed farewell to Red Sox fans and tipped his cap, blew kisses and shed a few tears after he was removed for pinch runner Nick Punto in the seventh inning of Sunday’s 9-4 win over Atlanta.
He was mobbed by teammates and even pushed out of the dugout for a curtain call by Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine. The Red Sox also played a video tribute to him.
It’s the end of an era in Beantown.
