youkcandoit.gifKevin Youkilis has decided to join his Red Sox teammate, Curt Schilling, in the blogosphere. The name of Youk’s blog is Yooooouuuuukkkkk. I have included it in my links on the side. Here is an excerpt from the blog.

Dustin Pedroia thinks he’s faster than me but I think we put that to rest last night with the inside-the-park home run, too. He’s just not as fast as me. On the road trip before this one there was a big debate on the club about who was faster -– Dustin or me. We had a lot of fun with it. It was all a big joke, really. Julio Lugo was in the middle of it in the dugout, saying, “I’m picking Dustin. He’s definitely faster than you.” But last night after my home run, Julio seemed to change his mind. He told Pedroia, “You’ve got no chance. Youkilis is definitely faster than you.” It’s a good time to be a player on the Red Sox right now. Winning makes everything a lot more fun as a player. Everybody gets along great when you’re winning. There are a lot of positive things happening with our club at this point. The joking around about who’s faster was great for guys like Dustin and myself who haven’t been around all that long. It pulls us in and helps bring everyone together as a team. It’s all good humor and we’re enjoying what we do. As far as I’m concerned, I’ve already proven I’m faster than Dustin but, who knows, maybe we can have a race for charity sometime. It couldn’t be during the season –- in case one of us ever tweaked a hamstring or something -– but maybe we could do it in the offseason. It would be fun.

Great stuff!!!
