    Brock Holt

    What is better for the team? Holt or Middlebrooks in the third?

    Re: Brock Holt

    I would say in the long term that Middlebrooks will be the guy.

    However,I am thinking that they want him to spend a little more time in AAA before he becomes a fulltime major leaguer. If you recall, back about 10 years ago, the Blue Jays had a hot-shot pitcher named Roy Halladay. They called him up too soon, he struggled, they sent him all the way back to single-A. When Hallady finally made it back to the big club he was a much better pitcher,and soon became the best in the league.

    So the short term answer is Holt. Only because the team amd Middlebrooks will benefit from not rushing him back. But, as usual, the front office is not checking here for answers. They already know this.

    Brock Holt is playing a very respectable 3 B. H

    e is getting some clutch hits and appears to be able to the little things right. I am pleasantly surprised--it wouldn't surprise me if people are calling about him as a super siub type.

    WMB is going to have soome tough competition--I hope he's prepared for it. Boggie hit his 7 th HR tonight in 28 games and Cecchini continues to hit well at AA SeaDogs.

    Middlebrooks isn't going anywhere anytime soon. Holt will be the utility guy once Drew returns after the All Star Break. Other than the error today, he has been a great dirt dog at bottom of order.

    Too early to tell...but I like hungry players like him...middlebrooks has at this moment more long term potential...

    Holt looks pretty comfortable at the plate and plays a solid 3B...the answer is simple he plays until he crashes and burns.
