Bobby V: 'It is what it is' with Youkilis

Bobby Valentine’s postgame comments related to Kevin Youkilis and Dustin Pedroia (questions in bold):

* Could Youkilis have hit today (sore groin)?

Valentine: “He said he could. They tried to give it the day. They thought it was early to bring him back, the training room, that is.”

* Did Valentine get to speak to Pedroia?

Valentine: “Yes. He's cool. He says he gets it. I think he was asked a question in a dubious manner. I told him what happened, he said 'OK I got it.’”

* Is there a need for further discussion with Youkilis?

Valentine: "I talked to him during the game.”

* Is everything fine?

Valentine: "It is what it is."
