Youkilis To Have Season Ending Surgery
Josh Beckett, Victor Martinez, Mike Lowell, and Jacoby Ellsbury came back from the disabled list in the past week, but one more member has been added to the Walking Wounded. Kevin Youkilis went down the other day with a torn abductor muscle in his right thumb.
The Red Sox are 6 games behind the AL East-leading New York Yankees going into a 4-game series hosted in the Bronx. If the Sox don't take at least 3 out of 4, they're in some serious trouble. No matter what happens, the AL East is going to be contested by 2 teams, but if the Sox can have a solid weekend, we might be looking at World War III.
First game tonight, with Clay Buchholz against Javier Vazquez, 7:05 from the Bronx. Go Sox.
