Kevin Youkilis might have changed the color of his Sox, but he promises to be the same player who grinds out at-bats, plays hard and gets dirty.

Youkilis is known for being a tough out and a run-producing World Series winner with the

Boston Red Sox. That hasn't been so much the case this season, though, with a .233 batting average, four home runs and 14 RBI.

So manager Robin Ventura is hoping a change from red to white is what gets his new third baseman, whom the White Sox traded for Sunday to fill a gaping hole, playing his best.
