Youkilis says baseball in Chicago is ‘just fun’

The three weeks since Kevin Youkilis was shipped to Chicago with some cash for Brent Lillibridge and Zach Stewart have flown by. Since the move, Youkilis has hit .295 (18 of 61), smacked three home runs, driven in 18 runs, and won player of the week honors, feeling rejuvenated in a setting that’s both new and less pressure-drenched.

It’s a drama-free environment in Chicago — one with just four beat writers, he made sure to note — that he says has made the game more fun for him.
