Triple Weekly News

3 three weeks have passed since the last Player of the Week, this Triple Player of the Week award goes to Kevin Youkilis. These 3 awards put him in a 3-way tie with David Ortiz and Jason Bay for the lead, with 5 awards total. These have been terrible 3 weeks, they are currently on a 6 game losing skid. They got swept in a 4-game series by the Yankees, and 2-game series against the Rays, within this losing streak. Kevin Youkilis has been a bright spot however, as he received 4 HRs, and 15 RBIs in this Red Sox slump. Another bright spot is that they acquired Victor Martinez from the Indians, a perrennial all-star catcher, unfortunately to get him, they had to trade Justin Masterson and two other prospects. They are also 62-48, and 6.5 games behind the Yankees, the Rays are only 8.0 back. The Sox are tied with teh Rangers for the Wild Card spot.
