The Boston Red Sox desire to trade Kevin Youkilis has been no secret and it appears both Red and White Sox have finally pulled the trigger. Reports out of the clubhouse are that Youkilis's nameplate has been removed from his locker and Bobby Valentine said there is a "situation pending."

Youkilis actually got the start today, and after hitting a triple in the eighth inning, Valentine pulled Youkilis for a pinch runner, allowing the Fenway crowd to give a final farewell to the Greek god of walks. [TBS]
