Kevin Youkilis, signed to a one-year, $12 million deal by the Yankees, has no idea whether Yankee fans will embrace him immediately after being a Red Sox so long.
“You can’t control what people are going to think about you. All you can control is what you’re doing in the game. I think over the years I’ve had a lot of Yankee fans come up to me and say ‘Hey, I’m a huge Yankee fan but I like the way you play the game.’ So, I think I don’t change the way... I’m going to play as hard as I can every day and I think a lot of fans will appreciate that. So, that’s all I can bring to the table and I hope that the Yankee fans enjoy watching me play.”
