In response to J-BAY's comment:
Babe, while I understood why fans, other than Red Sox, didn't like him, I think you'll come to realize he's a good guy. Friend of mine works at the Casino in CT, where Youk does his annual youk for kids charity benefit. Said he never meet anyone who had dealings with him over the years, say anything but positive things about him. Then, met him himself and agreed.
Even in pinstripes, Youk will always be a Red Sox to me, also, even if I can't root him. He was home grown, one of our own and gave it all he had, wearing the Red sox uniform.
I disagree and now see how he is not a great clubhouse guy.
Regardless of how he truly feels, it was his first day in Pinstripes.
He should have said how happy he was to put on a Yankee uniform and to be in a position to help a contending team win, and left it at that.
I can understand how bosox fans likie what he said, but exactly how does it benefit him in his current environment? It doesn't.
Maybe he really is part of the cancer that has affected the sawx clubhouse in recent years.
How does anything he said in the interview, equate to being a part of a clubhouse cancer or not a great guy, clubhouse or ortherwise. First day in pinstripes, why not give him a chance?
