Top 10 reasons the Red Sox traded Kevin Youkilis

Also, he's not reacting well to the chemo
10) Could not see a player with old person skills and body doing too well as, well, an old person

9) Really couldn't say no to the trade bounty of unknown pitcher and unknown utility infielder

8) Every time anyone makes a trade with the White Sox, it just works out

7) Will Middlebrooks' is hitting .326, not costing a boatload of money, and doesn't get hurt in a strong breeze

6) Bobby Valentine didn't get along with him, and everyone knows that Valentine is going to be with Boston for a really, really long time (wink)

5) After so many years of blood, sweat and tears poured into the team, Sox management decided it would rather not have all of those nasty fluids all over the floor

4) By trading him, Boston hopes to move beyond the previous unpleasantness with the Yankees

3) Best way to make sure that he finally gets healthy and goes on a Carlton Fisk-esque second career

2) Think he might have eaten chicken or drank beer sometime in 2011

1) It was a slow news days for NESPN
