Stop me if you’ve heard this one before…

Kevin Youkilis is going on the 15-day DL with a lumbar strain.

Got it?

I was about to complain that I was bored and was just about to resort to watching “Xanadu” on DVD and, well, now I’m not so bored, so thanks Youk!

UPDATED: Because of Youkilis’ injury, David Adams stays otherwise the team would be without a third baseman or would have to stick someone there that probably hasn’t played the position since Little League.
