I live in Boston and picked up Middlebrooks about two weeks before he got the call-up. He was killing it down in Pawtucket, so a promotion seemed likely, and I wasn't going to miss out as I had been looking for a decent 3B replacement while Longoria is out. As soon as Youkilis hit the DL he got his shot. Yes, Moustakas is the more highly touted prospect. But who cares? Ultimately that means nothing. Zero, zilch, nada. It's all about production. Yes, Middlebrooks has a big swing and will strikeout a bit, but he can also flat out rake. Word is that a deal was going to happen that sent Youk to San Francisco, but I guess the Sox wanted too much in return. Oakland is always a possibility, too. Beane and his OBP cohorts love "The Greek God of Walks" as much as anyone. I'm in a 12 team H2H Keeper League and I personally would rather have Middlebrooks. Just from watching him briefly thus far I think he's got it. But then again, Moustakas probably does also. And the fact that Will may be sitting more than not from here on out is reason for concern. At least in the short-term. He can't produce while riding the pine. But I think, as others above me have already pointed out, that Youk will be dealt and the everyday 3B job will be handed over to Middlebrooks. The future is now. Worst case scenario Middlebrooks produces here and there sitting on my bench and then gets the gig next season when the Sox neglect to pick up Youkilis' extension. Be patient if you can. If not, and you absolutely need the help right now, go with Moustakas. But I have a feeling come August you'll wish you had held on to Will.
