Alex Verdugo Traded (feat. Kevin Youkilis)
Listen now
Description
Kevin Youkilis joins the show in our latest rendition of the Klark’s Ketchup Series MVP Panel media tour. We get into the Alex Verdugo trade right away, talking about Verdugo’s tenure in Boston, the return the Red Sox received in the trade, and what the outfield might look like on Opening Day 2024. After we break down trade, we talk to Youk about his experience in the broadcast booth. He gives us insight into his game day preparation, the balance of mixing new-age analytics with his experience as a former player, how he approaches analyzing mishaps on the field without making it personal, if he’s itching for a winning season in the booth, and a whole lot more! Youk also details his playing days in Japan including facing a 19-year-old Shohei Ohtani and tells a great story about himself and Dustin Pedroia teeing off on Daisuke Matsuzaka in spring training. Youk also gives Tyler advice on how to go bald with pride. Huge thanks to Youk for joining the show and we can’t wait to keep picking series MVPs with him next year!
