    While I hope that Middlebrooks does well in 2014, you do realize that he wasm't even in the starting WS lineup in 2013? If Drew stays where are you gonna put Bogaerts? He replaced Middlebrooks when it mattered in the Series. Middlebrooks hit .227 during the season and struck out 98 times out of 348 at bats---not stellar numbers. He seems to fall behind in counts and has trouble reading pitches. My take is I wouldn't be surprised if he's traded somewhere along the line.

    DREW  is "all but gone"  !!!    3rd base is Middy's job to lose !!!

    i am quite pathetic.  i was looking for my WMB is a bust thread i started back in ~May 2012 and couldnt find it.  i had to settle for this. 

    technically it wasnt a cheap s|-|ot as the poster asked to be reminded. 

    FTR...the latest incarnation of Pike is quite palatable....(so far)...

    Ahead of Tampa Bay by 3 games? My guess is that the forum was not convinced of a playoff berth at that time.




    Nope, there were still plenty of "remember 2011", put up by the nervous nellies.

    Even funnier was softy later on trying to claim it was Middy's hit in the playoffs that was most important of all- just to not have to admit he was wrong... again!

    Middy also showed power with 17 homers and was pretty good at third.  It will all come down to spring training and whether or not drew signs.  A lot could have happened during the off season.

    Early this year, the first few weeks to be precise. I stated loudly that Felix Doubront ( right about the time he was demoted to the bullpen and Shelled)  would be better than Jon Lester and that he would get a start in a playoff game over Lester. Well.....needless to say, at the time...I was not only laughed at, but put down endlessly by so called "experts" on here who think they know everything about this game....WELL.....here's another one for you all....Middlebrooks will be one of the key players to get us into the playoffs and eventually the world series, where....YES....he will be the MVP

     

      MARak IT DOWN, and laugh and mock me all you want.   But when it happens, remember where you heard it, and.....LAUGH...



    Great prediction on August 10th that the Red Sox would be in the World Series. Kudos.




    I'll assume you're being facetious, as Middy was replaced by XB, Dubby never "replaced" Lester who was as hot as they come, and the Sox were pretty much a shoe in by August?

    This is what we're supposed to do.

    1-If you don't make fun of people when they are wrong, how will they make better predictions?

    2-We won.  When you win, everything is funny, and everything is in good fun.

    Middy looked much worse on defense in 2013 than 2012.

    He still looked good and covered more territory at third than some. No bad habits like Boggie's double clutching.  He had some issues with throws one hopping to first before they sent him down.  Like i said, spring training will tell a lot.  Middy has his injury completely behind him and hopefully returns to his 2012 form.

    " Fact is, SOFTY knows his stuff & he was right about Middlebrooks"

    Umm, he condemned the AGone trade, called for Cherry to be fired, predicted this team would implode, predicted confidently the Tigers would teach us a lesson, and on it goes with all the things he was wrong about. 

    He was wrong about just about everything last year. Middlebrooks he might be right on but the jury is still out.

    Lester was the World Series MVP so I'm not sure what that old Doubront comment had to do with anything. A lot of us thought Doubront would be pretty good.

    In my opinion, he looked awful at 3B last year, and the UZR/150 backs me up.

    Middy was at -8.3 (24th out of 30).

    Funny,  when I said he was weak at 3rd 2 years ago, most jumped down my throat.  Still....  I wouldn't give up on him just yet.  I'd love to see him at 1st in a few years.  After Naps is gone.

    Nothing has happened to alter my skeptical view of Middlebrooks. I never could figure out what all the excitement was about in the first place.

    I'm not sure what to expect from Middlebrooks this season.  I hope for the best, but I would still prefer to re-sign Drew.

    Totally agree with you. It just seemed to me that he had almost zero range. I know it's third base and great range isn't to be expected but at least you've got to cover the line, certainly late in games where you can't allow a 2 base hit. As for his hitting, he never seemed to be ready to hit and when he fell behind in the count he was toast. He might not have been as bad as Wily Mo on breaking balls, but he was pretty close.

    I can see it happening. It is convenient to forget that Middlebrooks came of a wrist injury this season so I don't think it is entirely reflective of what he is capable of. He certainly has shown in the past that he has the skills and the power so I suppose anything could happen.

    Looks like Middlebrooks had surgery to look like Ortiz. Creepy.
