Youk has been a pin cushion for quite some time now. Joba has thrown at him and now this Porcello kid hits him hard and then it's dance time and Youk went all charging bull on his ass. Not to be outdone, Tito then got thrown out arguing a JD "I could care less" Drew stolen base miscall at 2nd. Youk threw his helmet, Teets his gum, it was a big ol' angry mess.
I'll go ahead and say this is what the Sox needed to blow off steam from their shit-tay weekend in the Bronx. Sure they won Monday night, but hitting a few more HRs and letting Youk run and get all punchy at stuff surely gets him back in the right frame of mind.
Now we (the fans, not the all encompassing we) get to wait and see how much time Youk is going to miss for challenging Porcello to an early UFC 102. It was worth it.
** One little thing to add. If you live, or have lived, in or around Boston then chances are you've listened to 104.1 WBCN before, and yesterday was their last day on the air. I know everyone is all XM this and Sirius that, but long before every car had a CD player or satellite radio you were forced to listen to the regular old radio and 'BCN has been the #1 preset on my radio since I could drive. On my way to work this morning when I heard "The Mix 104.1" my heart sank like it was 2003. I used to listen to Howard Stern at night on BCN and then in the mornings when that was just what you listened to. I've heard hundreds of concert announcements and listened to countless Patriot games with Gino and crew. Where ever I have lived, 104.1 has always been 'BCN to me and I don't think I can untrain my mind at this point. Alas, happy trails 'BCN, thank you for the River Raves and Sterns and O&A's and everything else, you will always be the lord of the Rock to me.
