Kevin Youkilis to have an X-ray and a day off


I write the term “MRI” so much that writing “X-ray” feels like writing “ice box” or “dirigible” or something.  They still do X-rays, though I guess.

Kevin Youkilis is getting one anyway. On his left foot, off of which he fouled a ball during last night’s game.  Youk — the kids in Boston call him that, I’m told — will sit out today’s game with Drew Sutton taking his place.

UPDATE: X-Rays are negative. Which is a positive.
