There are a couple of things Kevin Youkilis wanted to make clear after his first day in the Yankees clubhouse.

Appearing at Yankees camp in Tampa, FL, the once hated rival of the pinstripes made clear that his heart is still in Boston, according to ESPN.com:

“I’ll always be a Red Sock,” Youkilis said. “To negate all the years I played for the Boston Red Sox, and all the tradition, you look at all the stuff I have piled up at my house and to say I’d just throw it out the window, it’s not true.

 

“Those were great years in Boston. One bad half-year doesn’t take away from all the great years I had there.”

 

Youkilis also said Yankees fans need to understand, while he might play the same position, he isn’t Alex Rodriguez:

“You can’t be thinking about shoes to fill, because I’ll never be Alex Rodriguez. I mean, Alex Rodriguez is one of the best hitters of all time. I’m not going to be that same guy. But I can be a good major league player who can help the team win.”

Youk’ signed a one year, $12 million deal with the Yankees this off season as the team looked to provide some backup for the A-Rod who is expected to miss at least half, if not all of the 2013 season.
