Kevin Youkilis debuted in 2004 with the Red Sox, where he played in 72 Games and won a World Series Ring.  After fighting injury and bouncing back and forth from Pawtucket in 2005, “The Greek God of Walks” became an everyday player the following season.

Youkilis would prove to be a good hitter, posting three consecutive .300 seasons (2008-10), with the latter two seeing him have an OBP over .400.  Providing good defense, Youkilis also showed good power numbers, with his 2008 and 2009 season showing Home Run numbers of 29 and 27.  An All-Star in both of those years, he was third and sixth in MVP voting, respectively.  Youkilis was a massive part in the Red Sox' 2007 World Series win, smacking three taters with a .500 Batting Average in the ALCS.  He would also make his third All-Star team in 2011.

Youkilis would be traded during 2012 to the White Sox, and with Boston he would have 133 Home Runs with 961 Hits.
