    Kevin Youkilis’ letter to Red Sox Nation:

    What an amazing run I have had these past 8 1/2 years in Boston!

    It has been an honor and a privilege to play every home game of my career in Boston before a sold out Fenway Park. I would like to thank everyone who gave me an opportunity in Boston, and stood behind me through all these years. To the Spinners, the Sea Dogs, the PawSox, and to all those teammates on the Red Sox since 2004, I am forever grateful.

    I want to thank the Red Sox ownership for all the hard work and dedication to making the Red Sox and Fenway Park a special place to play…
