I'll admit that in his first month of MLB ball I was all over him like a freight train with stickum, but in the last years worth of at-bats, I've see nothing more than an ok player that should be a pinch hitter if there is a sub with the hot hand. Above, there was an Alberto callaspo comparison. I think that fits pretty well.
The first person that comes to my mind when watching him is carney lansford, if anyone remembers watching that dude..
I'm not sure who you are watching if you think a Callaspo comparison is fair. These guys are polar opposites.
I mentioned Callaspo as the type of 3Bman that Middlebrooks ranks above by default. Callaspo completely sucks in fantasy. Middlebrooks at least has upside.
