    Jul 24, 2012, 4:16 PM EDT

    Brent Lillibridge

    Brent Lillibridge is on the move again. Traded from the White Sox to the Red Sox in the Kevin Youkilis deal and then almost immediately designated for assignment by Boston, Lillibridge has now been dealt to the Indians for minor leaguer Jose De La Torre. He’s expected to join the Indians’ active roster and will…

    White Sox Youkilis celebrates game-winning single in MLB American League baseball game against Rangers in Chicago

    Kevin Youkilis has been a great pickup for the White Sox. But today they got their first glimpse at the entirety of the Youksperiance: he’s out with a sore hamstring. He’s day-to-day, so it doesn’t seem serious. But it’s a reminder that a fact of life with Youkilis is that he’s going to be banged…

  3. David Ortiz headed to DL with Achilles’ tendon injury

    Jul 18, 2012, 3:15 PM EDT

    David Ortiz

    Bobby Valentine revealed during a radio interview with WEEI that David Ortiz will be placed on the disabled list with the Achilles’ tendon injury he suffered in Monday’s game. Tests showed no tear or rupture, but with the 36-year-old designated hitter unlikely to play for at least a week even if it proved to be…

  4. Kevin Youkilis is hitting .319 with 18 RBIs in 18 games for the White Sox

    Jul 18, 2012, 10:47 AM EDT

    White Sox Youkilis celebrates game-winning single in MLB American League baseball game against Rangers in Chicago

    Kevin Youkilis‘ return to Boston has so far consisted of four hits in two games, including a homer and two doubles, and the Red Sox castoff is now batting .319 with four homers, a .965 OPS, and 18 RBIs in 18 games since being traded to the White Sox. It’s early, of course, but he’s…

  5. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    April

    Angels/Giants 22, Tigers/Braves 0: So, I’m a Braves fan and my girlfriend is a Tigers fans and each of our teams got the crap beat out of them last night. So we agreed that baseball sucks and decided to watch downloaded “Parks and Recreation” episodes instead. Good call, yes? I mean, Mike Trout and Buster…

    Jul 17, 2012, 6:07 AM EDT

    Baltimore Orioles starting pitcher Chris Tillman wipes sweat from his forehead during the first inning of the Orioles' MLB baseball game against the Minnesota Twins at Target Field in Minneapolis

    Twins 19, Orioles 7: This was a multifaceted butt-whupping, but it got started with Chris Tillman’s butt. Which is a shame considering that five short months ago he was in the Best Shape of His Life. All of those runs for the Twins despite hitting only one homer. It was a Gashouse Gorillas-style conga line…

  7. The Red Sox designate Brent Lillibridge for assignment

    Jul 16, 2012, 4:30 PM EDT

    Brent Lillibridge

    The initial significance of the news that the Red Sox are going to designate Brent Lillibridge for assignment: that makes room for Carl Crawford on the 40-man roster. The larger significance: it means that the Red Sox effectively traded Kevin Youkilis for a 25 year-old minor league pitcher in Zach Stewart. Makes me wonder why…

  8. HBT Weekend Wrap

    grilling

    I stopped doing these for some reason. Sorta forgot about them. But it seemed like a lot happened this weekend, so for those of you with lives that don’t entail them being tied to the Internet all weekend, here’s what you missed: Bill James doubles down on the Joe Paterno defense. It’s like watching a…

  9. Bobby Valentine can’t shut up about Kevin Youkilis

    Jul 15, 2012, 12:50 PM EDT

    Bobby Valentine

    Kevin Youkilis has been all class since the Red Sox traded him away to Chicago. Bobby Valentine, well, not so much. Taking questions Sunday before Youkilis’ return visit to Boston this week, Valentine said: “The comment I made early, he made a big deal of. And I don’t think he ever wanted to get over…

  10. Jack Zduriencik REALLY doesn’t want to trade Felix Hernandez

    Jul 10, 2012, 10:00 AM EDT

    Felix Hernandez

    I wouldn’t think the Mariners would want to trade Felix Hernandez for anything, but I thought the same thing about Kevin Youkilis and Cole Hamels once, so what do I know? In the event that teams are interested in the guy, however, know this: Jack Zduriencik thinks you should probably not bother. Here’s what he told…

    New York Mets manager Collins congratulates Wright on hitting a walk off single to beat the Philadelphia Phillies in their MLB National League baseball game at Citi Field in New York

    Mets 6, Phillies 5: The R.A. Dickey vs. Cole Hamels matchup didn’t pan out as some expected, but David Wright took care of things, going 3 for 5 with four RBI including the game winner. Cardinals 6, Rockies 2: Lance Lynn had been skidding but the Rockies cured his ills. The Rockies cure everyone’s ills.…

  12. Kevin Youkilis likes his new shade of sox

    Jul 5, 2012, 9:41 AM EDT

    White Sox Youkilis celebrates game-winning single in MLB American League baseball game against Rangers in Chicago

    Kevin Youkilis is doing just fine with the change of scenery. Last night he singled home Alejandro De Aza in the bottom of the 10th to break a 4-4 and give the White Sox a walkoff win. He finished his night 2-for-4 with a walk. So far since the trade he’s 11 for 36 (.306) with…

    Philadelphia Phillies starting pitcher Lee points towards a pop out by New York Mets Nickeas during the third inning of their MLB National League baseball game in New York

    Phillies 9, Mets 2: Cliff Lee stood to lose yet another one, as he and the Phillies were down 2-0 entering the seventh, but three runs in each of the seventh, eighth and ninth innings saved his bacon. First win of the year for Lee. Marlins 7, Brewers 6: On Tuesday Milwaukee beat Miami in…

  14. The White Sox take out their frustrations on the Rangers

    Jul 3, 2012, 11:46 PM EDT

    A.J. Pierzynski

    A.J. Pierzynski made his displeasure about being snubbed from Ron Washington’s AL All-Star team perfectly clear, and his teammates were none too pleased either. Tonight, the White Sox exacted a little revenge, drubbing the Rangers 19-2. It was the Rangers’ most lopsided defeat during Washington’s term at the helm. In fact, they hadn’t lost so…

  15. NBC SportsTalk: Assessing the Kevin Youkilis trade

    Jun 26, 2012, 10:00 AM EDT

    Kevin Youkilis

    I was on NBC SportsTalk last night to talk about the Kevin Youkilis trade. It’s not on this video, but the segment before mine had Amani Toomer on it. Toomer is as bald as a cueball, and just before we went on the air, I noted that a nice lady was applying powder to his…

  16. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    Jun 26, 2012, 6:10 AM EDT

    Kevin Youkilis

    Twins 4, White Sox 1: Kevin Youkilis made his Chisox debut and went one for four in a loss and gave us this odd picture of him in a White Sox uniform. Adam Dunn went 0 for 4 and struck out four times, but the list of things he gives less of a crap about…

  17. Kevin Youkilis starts off hitting second for White Sox

    Jun 25, 2012, 6:05 PM EDT

    Kevin Youkilis

    White Sox No. 2 hitters have batted a pathetic .215/.265/.323 this season. He won’t have to be the old Kevin Youkilis to improve on that. White Sox manager Robin Ventura will ask Youkilis to help set the table for Adam Dunn and Paul Konerko following his acquisition from the Red Sox on Sunday. Here’s the…

  18. The Red Sox marketing team is on top of things

    Jun 25, 2012, 12:03 PM EDT

    Kevin Youkilis

    Less than 24 hours after the Red Sox traded Kevin Youkilis, and an advertisement went out to Sox fans promoting the White-Sox vs. Red Sox series of July 16-19 as the first time Youkilis is back in Fenway Park following his trade to Chicago. Quick thinking, that.

    I’m back after a week’s vacation. I wrote up a long sappy version of it last week, but here’s the short version: San Diego for five days, during which I took Mookie and Carlo to their first ever major league game to see the Rangers vs. the Padres last Monday night. It was a doubly…

  20. Directionless Red Sox hope for addition by subtraction

    Jun 24, 2012, 7:13 PM EDT

    Kevin Youkilis

    Make no mistake about it: this is a pretty nasty storm the Red Sox have had to weather. The team has already had to use 41 players. The left fielder and the closer have missed the entire season so far. The All-Star center fielder has missed most of it. At one point, the team’s top…

  21. Kevin Youkilis sent to White Sox for Zach Stewart, Brent Lillibridge

    Jun 24, 2012, 5:26 PM EDT

    Kevin Youkilis

    The White Sox announced after Sunday’s game that they’ve acquired Kevin Youkilis from Boston in exchange for right-hander Zach Stewart and utilityman Brent Lillibridge. The Red Sox are also sending $5.5 million in cash to help cover Youkilis’ salary, according to FOXSports.com’s Ken Rosenthal. “I just got off the phone with him, he’s very excited to…

  22. Kevin Youkilis trade not believed imminent

    Jun 24, 2012, 1:39 PM EDT

    kevin youkilis getty

    It’s well past noon and we haven’t checked in on the Kevin Youkilis rumor mill. Time to rectify that. CSNNE.com’s Sean McAdam has the goods: Five teams — the Los Angeles Dodgers, Chicago White Sox, Cleveland Indians, Atlanta Braves and a fifth unidentified team — are evolving. The Pittsburgh Pirates and Arizona Diamondbacks, a second…

  23. Will Middlebrooks has been historically productive

    Jun 24, 2012, 10:43 AM EDT

    Red Sox third baseman Will Middlebrooks was batting .333/.380/.677 with nine home runs and 27 RBI in 100 plate appearances for Triple-A Pawtucket at the time of his promotion to the major leagues. And he’s barely slowed down at the next level. Middlebrooks went 3-for-4 with a double, a home run and two RBI in…

  24. Kevin Youkilis expected to be traded soon

    Jun 23, 2012, 3:52 PM EDT

    Kevin Youkilis Reuters

    UPDATE, 9:35 PM ET: According to Rosenthal, the Indians are now considered a “longshot” to land Youkilis and the Dodgers have only had “minimal contact” with Boston’s front office. It sounds like it might come down to the White Sox and Pirates. 3:52 PM ET: Jim Bowden of ESPN.com and MLB Network Radio on Sirius XM…

  25. Trade talks involving Kevin Youkilis are picking up

    According to Ken Rosenthal and Jon Paul Morosi of FOXSports.com, trade talks regarding Kevin Youkilis have “intensified” over the past 24 to 48 hours. While a deal isn’t considered imminent, one high-ranking official with a National League club said that the veteran third baseman is “being shopped everywhere.” The report names the Diamondbacks, White Sox,…
