Kevin Youkilis played hard for the Red Sox and in his brief tenure with the Chicago White Sox ('Youkilis agrees to join Yankees,' Dec. 12). He unfortunately had to deal with the crazy verbal behavior of Bobby Valentine (whom I think most of us are glad to see gone), who not only trashed Youkilis but also David Ortiz.
I am sorry Youkilis went to the Yankees, but am glad that he wound up as an active player. Just think what he could have done as a Red Sox again as a backup third baseman and at first if Mike Napoli does not join the Sox or doesn't work out.
