Bobby Valentine’s Decision to Play Will Middlebrooks Consistently Should Help Adrian Gonzalez (Video)

Will Middlebrooks is on fire as of late, and it’s awfully difficult to find any reason behind sitting down the budding young star.

On Friday, Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine revealed that he would be staying with the “hot hand” in Middlebrooks and that Kevin Youkilis would take a seat in the interim.

Peter Abraham of The Boston Globe discussed Middlebrooks’ new role and how it will eventually impact first baseman Adrian Gonzalez‘s ability to improve his approach at the plate.
