    Middlebrooks is not a phenom. He may not even be major league material.

    He was never considered a "phenom", but a very promising young 3b prospect.

    Still is considered a promising young 3bman.

    In response to ms-obstinate99's comment:

    Things appear to keep getting worse for Will Middlebrooks.

    According to Joe McDonald of ESPN Boston, the third baseman was ejected from Wednesday's PawSox game after striking out in the bottom of the third inning. Middlebrooks struck then swinging, then reportedly slammed his bat and helmet to the ground and made a comment to the umpire before being tossed from the game. 

    That was only part of a rough, though very brief, day for Middlebrooks. He also committed an error at third base earlier in the game. 

    The Red Sox opted to call up Brock Holt instead of Middlebrooks after Jose Iglesias was traded as part of the deal to bring Jake Peavy to Boston, which left Middlebrooks in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game. However, the season has not been kind to a player who was considered a phenom at one point in his rookie season with the Red Sox last year.

    It appears the frustration is getting to him.

    Middy needs accept and go through these growing pains if he ever intends on having a big league career.  I know a lot of fans like Holt but he isn't the answer long term either in my opinion. 

    A decent utility guy maybe but I don't see him as an every day player.

    Understandable
    But, that's not going to help his cause much.

    You can't give the club additional reasons to keep you in AAA.

    What happened to that idea that we like players to show emotion ?

    I slammed my bat down last week when I hit a fly to right that I knew was routine. Swung at a pitch I knew I shouldnt have. Of course, I didnt cuss the umpire, but still.......

    agreed. Who gives a crap what these so called message board experts say anyway. Middlebrooks can and will succeed in the big leagues.

    I have no issue with what he did. Hes had a hard year and Im surprised it took this long for a mini meltdown. He'll be fine. Back at it tomorrow now that hes finally got it out of his syatem.

    I think this is a mis-read.  Middlebrooks has been working very hard at cutting down his strikeouts and improving his on-base percentage, and the fact that there have been 21Ks in this game through six innings might suggest that the umpire's strike zone is a bit liberal.  Frustration, yes, but maybe more at the umpire getting in the way Middlebrooks working the counts more.

    BTW DG, Im surprised every one of your posts arent "removed" because your signature line seems to "condone violence" towards St. Louis Cardinals players.

    Showing emotion does not mean a player will make it. It means nothing. Middlebrooks has to prove he can make it by his performance. So far, he hasn't.

    They actually removed the Lavarnway joke thread. While I don't condone violence, even towards the Cardinals, I did feel like throwing something when Iglesias was dealt. Surprisingly, I have never been banned. Ignored, yes. Blasted, yes. But never banned. I will have to try and be more controversial.

    Middlebrooks always strikes me as a pretty mature and level-headed kid, judging by all the comments I've seen/heard from him. I chalk this up to a bad day on his part.

    Middlebrooks is 24 and we have seen the potential - it is far from over for him
