Player of the Month

So during the first real month of the 2007 season, I feel it’s my job to name the player of the month. For me, this one is a no-brainer. Kevin Edmond Youkilis is my guy. This is the hardest I’ve seen him work over any other player any other year. He is the reason we are where we are. Just looking at him play you can see he has his rhythm. He has a 22-game hit streak, which consists of an amazing inside-the-park home-run. This guy is really serious. He has the highest batting average of any first baseman as well as the 3rd best in the MLB. He also as 8 homers and 30 RBIs.

Boston Red Sox' Kevin Youkilis reacts at the dugout after hitting an inside-the-park home run against the Cleveland Indians in the seventh inning of a baseball game at Fenway Park in Boston Monday, May 28, 2007.

A high contributor to our team. He also leads the team with 40 runs. If he keeps playing like this, we could have an excellent shot at getting far in the playoffs.

Backround Info:

Kevin Youkilis has always been a true Red Sox player. Playing for the Lowell Spinners, Portland Seadogs, and the Pawtucket Red Sox all in the affiliation of the Red Sox. Along with Manny, David, and Jason I don’t think he’ll be leaving anytime soon. In 2002 he won Minor League Player of the Year with the Portland Seadogs. He made is Major League debut on May 15, 2004. Since then he’s been nothing but helpful. YYYYOOOOUUUUUUKKKK!!!!

    My “Player of the Month” is JD Drew. Without his weak ground balls and strikeouts. And not hitting the ball into the outfield, we would be nowhere without him. I mean without that .230 average, terrible slugging percentage, and “ok” defense, this team would have lost 17 games this month.
