It appears that Kevin Youkilis and Joba Chamberlain have buried the hatchet as “Youk” finally acknowledged his new teammate this week.
Their long-standing feud didn’t magically end in December when Youkilis, long one of the main faces on the hated Red Sox, signed with the Yankees to take Alex Rodriguez’s spot at third base. Chamberlain was irked in the weeks after the signing, saying that he had left a voicemail on Youkilis’ phone at the time of the signing but that the former rival never responded.
“I did whatever I could, I can’t control what Kevin Youkilis does,” Chamberlain told the NY Post at the time.
Tuesday, the Yankees pitcher was singing a different tune.
“It changed. He texted me,” Chamberlain said. “We’ll hug it out.
“I don’t want him to have to talk about it,” Chamberlain said about the saga. “He’s gonna have enough to worry about over here. He’s really the only acquisition we’ve made as of now.”
