Saying Farewell to "The Beard of Truth"

Long before 2013 and The Beards won over the hearts and minds of Red Sox Nation, we indulged in an even greater—yet more singular—beard mania. Kevin Youkilis first rose to prominence as the "Greek God of Walks," better known for his penchant at not swinging than for his wacky batting stance or his defensive prowess. And there was absolutely no sign of the future slugger hiding in that goofy-looking frame. For Youkilis—as attested by his rookie card—was not exactly the prospect who would strike fear in the hearts of opposing pitchers or baserunners hoping to make it to first or...

Kevin Youkilis says farewell to baseball

And we say a last, heartfelt YOOOUUUKKK An ugly, sweaty, man-beast... a grade-A red-ass. - BP Annual, 2010 I've seen him in the shower, and I wouldn't call him the Greek god of anything. - Terry Francona Now we have to call him Facebush forever. - My girlfriend, upon first seeing Youk's... goatee?

'Greek God Of Walks' Retires After Ten Seasons

YoukMoneyball got it partly wrong. Kevin Youkilis was not of Greek descent—but he did walk a helluva lot (539 times).

2014 Season Review: Solving The Third Base Problem

For the second straight season, the Yankees did not have Alex Rodriguez at third base on Opening Day. He missed most of last year following hip surgery and all of this year due to his 162-game Biogenesis suspension. The Yankees tried to replace A-Rod with Kevin Youkilis (remember that?) last year but that failed when […]Post from: River Ave. Blues A New York Yankees blog2014 Season Review: Solving The Third Base Problem The post 2014 Season Review: Solving The Third Base Problem appeared first on River Avenue Blues.
