This thread is to appreciate someone who came up through the Red Sox organization and played his heart out for us for 9 years. Like him or hate him he played the game with an intensity and passion that few others could match. Whether you put him at third or first he gave his all. Thanks Kevin Youkilis for 9 great years and two world series rings.

He was a great player, I loved his approach at the plate, his defense and his baserunning. I'm going to miss him but Middlebrooks is making this easier than I thought it would be.

Thanks for everything without you Youk we never would won a world series title in 07. You still in my opinion deserve the MVP in 08 over Pedroia.

Will Middlebrooks really gets it. Here's what he wrote on Twitter on Sunday night: "It was truly an honor playing with and learning from Youk ... He's the definition of a professional. Played the game right."

Youkilis and Middlebrooks had a good relationship in spring training, the veteran helping the rookie out. Deep down, Youkilis had to know he was helping groom the guy who would one day take his job. But that's part of the code in baseball, doing what's right by a young teammate.Boston Globe
