Dustin Pedroia Tells Kevin Youkilis He Loves Him, Man (Video)

Kevin Youkilis and Dustin Pedroia have spent most of their major league careers together, and, of course, they won a World Series title together in 2007. So, after Youkilis was traded to the Chicago White Sox on Sunday, Pedroia felt it was the right time to share some feelings on his fellow infielder.

When asked what he told Youkilis after he came off the field in the seventh inning, Pedroia told reporters that he told Youkilis he loved him, and would see him again in July — when the Red Sox take on the White Sox in a four game set at Fenway July 16 through 19. Pedroia also took the opportunity to herald Youkilis as one of the hardest worker's in baseball, and someone who set an example for him, personally.

Watch the video above to hear everything Pedroia had to say in his postgame interview.
