It wasn't exactly scripted, but Bobby Valentine knew what he was doing to make Kevin Youkilis' final moments in a Boston Red Sox uniform special.
In a segment excerpted from The Bobby Valentine Show, the Sox skipper recounts the conversation he had with general manager Ben Cherington when he was informed that Youkilis was about to be officially traded. There was a bit of a question as to whether or not to allow the third baseman to bat before the trade was finalized, but Valentine wanted to get Youkilis his final due. As it turned out, the moment worked out perfectly, and Youkilis was allowed to walk off the field to one final chant of "Youuuukkkk."
Watch the video above to hear Valentine recall those final moments.
