A guest on WAAF's Hill-Man show on Oct. 3,
Youkilis became the first Red Sox player to speak publicly in the offseason. On the reports of starting pitchers drinking beer in the clubhouse during games on their days off, Youkilis said, "A lot of us position players, we're so busy playing that we don't what's going on. There's things that you have no idea what's going on. You're so busy playing that you don't know even half the stuff. That's the funny thing too is, I swear to you I'm always the last person to find out things, too."
