Kevin Youkilis garnered the Gold Glove award today, making him the 16th Red Sox player and the only other first baseman than George “Boomer” Scott to seize the award. The Red Sox farm product boasts 135 errorless games and 1,094 flawless innings.
Coco Crisp was iced out of the same honor for his superb work in center. Instead the outfield was represented by perennial winners Torii Hunter and Ichiro Suzuki, both of whom snagged their seventh award, and Grady Sizemore, who won his first. That could have helped Crisp’s trade value.
