He’s back, guys! He’s back.
After kicking ASS in triple A–
Youkie made his triumphant return to Boston today. And Friday… (that’s TOMORROW) is officially Kevin Youkilis Day in Boston.
Because he’s back, baby.
Red Sox third baseman Kevin Youkilis will be activated for Friday’s game against the Rangers, manager Terry Francona announced on Thursday. Youkilis has been out of the Red Sox lineup since Aug. 17 with a back injury and would be first eligible to come off the disabled list on Friday.
What a happy day it will be.
I wish I were in Boston. I would soooooo buy the streamers in bulk.
So, Bostoners, I’ll leave you to your decorating. Remember the balloons, k? And feel free to be creative. Haikus are always appreciated. As are commemorative sculptures, ballads and face painting.
PS- Last night may have earned Phil Hughes a one-way ticket to the bullpen. Read all about it.
