Will Middlebrooks or Kevin Youkilis? Not an easy decision
It’ll be an interesting dilemma very soon: should the productive rookie third baseman Will Middlebrooks be ousted as the team’s third baseman just because veteran Kevin Youkilis is coming back from an injury? Sox GM Ben Cherington says yes. Sox manager Bobby Valentine isn’t as sure. Youkilis could return to action sometime during the next eight-game road trip which begins Wednesday vs. Tampa Bay.
