    I'm Will Middlebrooks biggest fan, well not really but I like him.  I'm a huge supporter of him getting a long look and being a starter, but lets temper our expecations a bit...this is afterall spring training.

    [/QUOTE]

    The whole reason for this thread was because of the earlier Middlebrooks is 1-for-10 thread. So when he went 1-for-3, I decided to have fun. Then he went 2-for-3 twice, so it's been even more fun.

    I don't want him to be too hot in the spring that he slumps when the regular season starts. Ideally, he has a solid spring, good at-bats when he makes outs, etc. and starts the season with steady production. 

    I've liked what I've seen out of him this spring so far, even during the 1-for-10 start. He's had a shaky moment or two in the field, but he's made some nice plays too.

     

    [/QUOTE]

    If you followed WMB's career, as in his entire career from high school up until Boston he was always a streaky hitter.  His power numbers slowly edged up as he moved up the latter because his hot streaks would become longer and his long slumps became shorter by year.

    This is exactly what happened when he came to Boston.  He got hot, then he got cold, then he got injured, then he played and was horrible and very well might have not been fully recovered...then he got hot, then he got cold.

    Everyone seems to argue whether he was the first half of 2012 WMB or the first half of 2013.  Few people think he is something inbetween,  but that is probably exactly what he is.  He will probably go through stretches where he scorches the ball, and then long slumps.  Much like Napoli, but with less walks, but maybe even more power potential.....which he might never tap into if he can't learn to be even just a little bit more patient. 

    [/QUOTE]

    I go back to what I've said all along. He's had five good months and two bad months. Two of the months were at the end of last year when he showed he made some positive adjustments. So I lean more toward the two bad months as simply being growing pains.

    We'll see.

    Maybe when he goes 0-fer, she should hold out on him, and when he has a good game she can get all freaky with him. The guy could end up winning the Triple Crown. Tongue Out

    To be fair, I was just using full months where he had the entire month to produce, to balance out a hot week or a cold week.

    I should have phrased it five good months, two bad months and two months incompletes. June of 2013 and August 2012 should be considered incompletes.

    If you don't like the incompletes and it's unfair to put a 70-plus PA month with a 30 to 35 PA month on equal terms, it's probably fair to combine the two half months as one and say he had five good months and three bad months, or five good months, two bad months and two bad half months.

    WMB also had a 1.057 OPS his first month in 2012 before he called up.  He was on a tare for half the year.   You can't excuse his 2013 performance, but you can perhaps at least explain it with his injury.  Even elite players in their prime often see a dramatic reduction in their numbers when playing hurt, or playing while recovering from an injury that can really slow you down. 

    WMB has a talent that deserves a long look....he's going to get that.

    My cup is half full.

    I think the beginning of last season was a combination of th injury and pitchers making an adjustment now that there was more of a scouting report on him, and he was slow to adjust.

    But I liked the way he looked the last two months. He was a bit more patient, went the opposite way more and you could see the change in his approach. 

    Right now, he's having the best spring statistically -- albeit small sample -- of the three of them: Middlebrooks, Bradley, Bogaerts. At least going into today's game.

    Another good game -- 1-for-3 HR, good defensive play.
