Will Middlebrooks Could Have Been A Mainstay

Baseball is a crazy business. In 2012, Will Middlebrooks looked like one the emerging young stars of the sport. After filling in at third base for an injured Kevin Youkilis, Middlebrooks had a half-season full of promise. In just 75 games, he hit .288 with 15 HRs and 54 RBIs. We all thought we had a kid who could clout 30 bombs and 100 RBIs for years. Then, injuries intervened. And bad luck. And the emergence of other prospects. Then, finally, a 'Panda' put an end to it all. We will always wonder what might have been. We wish Will the best of luck in San Diego.
