Kevin Youkilis to have season-ending thumb surgery

Kevin Youkilis went in for a second opinion on his thumb today. The only way it could have been worse was if the doctor said “you’re ugly too.”  The verdict: season ending surgery for the Red Sox’ best hitter.

I’ve been declaring the Red Sox dead for a week now, but I think this is truly the coup de grace. Youkilis was batting .307/.411/.564 and there is no one in Boston that can make up for that.
