Kevin Youkilis is changing the color of his Sox.

White Sox general manager Kenny Williams did it again: pulled off a bold trade at little or no cost.

With Will Middlebrooks having established himself as the third baseman not just of the future but of the present in Boston, the Sunday papers were full of the news that the Red Sox were suddenly shopping Kevin Youkilis. Trader Kenny almost as suddenly did the unimaginable, getting the Red Sox to part with “the Greek god of walks” for pitcher Zach Stewart and utility man Brent Lillibridge in a deal announced immediately after their ten-inning, 1-0 win over the Milwaukee Brewers at White Sox Park on Sunday.
