This time, Kevin Youkilis just wasn't going to take it anymore. In the bottom of the second inning tonight, 20 year-old Rick Porcello hit Youkilis in the upper arm with a fastball. Youkilis hesitated for a second (to give the catcher enough time to stop him), then charged the mound. This was a defining moment for the league's biggest sissy.
Let's break down Youk's epic charge of the mound. We already talked about the slight delay so someone could stop him, so we'll pick it up from there. I think Youk was sprinting to the mound, but it's hard to tell when a guy is that slow. Porcello seemed shocked and backed off the mound. When Youkilis got close enough, he threw his helmet at Porcello. Basically, the equivalent of hitting someone with your purse. He then proceeded to try to hug the young righty. Porcello was having none of it and flung Youkilis to the ground like a rag doll. When the benches cleared Porcello had Youkilis's sissy body pinned to the infield grass, and he may have been giving him head noogies and calling him a bitch, but I can't confirm that.
Once his teammates were able to pull the lanky kid off poor Kevin, he went about whining to whoever would listen and acting tough.
I've often made fun of Youkilis for pretending like he was really mad at pitchers for hitting him, but never doing anything about it. Basically, he would give the "hold me back, I'm reallly mad," posture at home plate, but never do anything. Well, he finally followed through on all the hard looks and somehow he came out looking even weaker. Congrats, Youk. It's going to be years before anyone challenges you for the title of the biggest sissy in baseball.
By the way, this was the 10th time the king of all sissies has been hit by a pitch this season, 9 other players have been hit as many times. Chase Utley leads the league with 17, typically the league leader is over 20 for the season. Enough of the "they all throw at me, it's not fair" b.s.
UPDATE: Youkilis is taking his whining, bitchy act
to the internet.
