Just in case anyone was still curious...

Exactly one month ago I wrote a blog entry about how the Red Sox had a failed ninth inning comeback. While writing about this I mentioned that Kevin Youkilis's nickname is "the greek god of walks". I asked the nation if anyone knew why he was called that, and to email me if they knew. Well, no one e-mailed me but I found out the answer today while reading Dan Shaughnessy's book Reversing the Curse. Apparently Kevin Youkilis was dubbed the nickname in Michael Lewis's book Moneyball. So just in case anyone was still curious, that is how Kevin Youkilis got to be named the greek god of walks.
