“I had told him [ Brady], ‘I think I may go see him [Youkilis],’” Julie Brady-Youkilis told the YES Network. “And he [ Brady] goes, ‘If I were you, I’d move as slow as molasses.’ And I go, ‘But Tommy, that means you don’t move at all,’ and he goes, ‘Exactly!’”
At the time Youkilis and Brady’s sister began dating, he was still a member of the Red Sox and she was still living in California. They were married in April 2012.
Youkilis says he and Brady have a great relationship now. The Yankees third baseman asked Brady’s advice about going from the Red Sox to the Yankees.
“I even asked a question about coming to New York,” Youkilis said. “‘Could you ever be a Jet or a Giant?’ And he’s like, ‘I don’t know. Luckily I’m not in your shoes.’ And I’m like, ‘Thanks a lot for your advice, buddy!’”
Boston fans everywhere just cringed picturing Brady in either rivals’ uniform.
