Will Middlebrooks is here! He’s finally here!

The Red Sox’ highly-touted third base prospect is up with the big league team on Wednesday, and the moment couldn’t have come a moment too soon for many Red Sox fans. Of course, that it came at the expense of a Kevin Youkilis trip to the disabled list is regrettable.

Still, NESN Nation’s Dan Duquette is psyched for Middlebrooks’ pending debut. Exciting times ahead!
