Kevin Youkilis Ready to Move on After Dealing With ‘Craziness’ of Return to Boston

Kevin Youkilis Ready to Move on After Dealing With 'Craziness' of Return to BostonBOSTON — As far as homecomings go, Kevin Youkilis' could have gone better.

Sure, some numbers were there — Youk hit .417 over the course of the four-game series while hitting a home run and driving in three runs — but the most important numbers for Youkilis have always been the wins and losses.

So as the White Sox depart town and another chapter in Youkilis' Red Sox experience closes, he admits that he's ready to move on.

"It'll definitely be a good thing to finally change courses, and now it's [time to focus on] the Central," Youkilis said before Thursday's game. "It's definitely been a lot of craziness, but it's been good."

Youk also admitted that there have been mixed emotions during the series, but admitted that at some point, he needed to put those emotions aside for the sake of his new teammates.

"It's kind of fun to see those [former teammates] and play with them and joke around on the field with them," the 33-year-old said. "But you have to move on because you have a different uniform on and different teammates and different goals."

All in all, though, Youkilis sees the benefit in getting some closure against his former squad.

"It's been a good experience for me playing them and I can't complain," Youkilis said.

After winning three of four at the expense of Youk's new team, the Red Sox can't complain either.
