"To limit movement and allow his ankle to heal, Youkilis will wear a walking boot for the next several days..." -- 3.18.09, part of the Red Sox statement.... wonderful

Umm, OK... Sure... Got It Davey

"He's a huge part of this ball club. But also we don't want to take any chances. Ankles can linger, and that's something that needs to be addressed right away. He played with kind of a sprained ankle the other night." -- Davey Johnson, USA manager who added that Youkilis did not injure the ankle during the wild celebration after Tuesday's comeback 6-5 victory over Puerto Rico.
