Youk: 'Seems like I can't escape the Red Sox'

There's no escaping the Red Sox for Kevin Youkilis . . . even in Minnesota. Even in a White Sox uniform.

Youkilis went 1-for-4 in his White Sox debut Monday night, which ended in a 4-1 loss to the Twins at Target Field in Minneapolis. But during the game while he was in the field, the Target Field scoreboard began showing highlights of the Red Sox' game against the Blue Jays.

"It seems like I cant escape the Red Sox with some of the highlights up there," he joked, "but it was kind of nice to see some of your old teammates doing well. Hopefully tomorrow there wont be any Red Sox highlights so we can all move on.
