Will Middlebrooks Rallies Boston Sports Fans With Tweet About Tom Brady, Mookie Betts


Will Middlebrooks might have said it best.

The former Red Sox third baseman reacted via Twitter to the seismic changes 2020 has brought to the Boston sports scene with a message that might inspire fans in the region.

Middlebrooks referenced two recent events — the blockbuster trade that sent Mookie Betts from the Red Sox to the Los Angeles Dodgers last month and Tom Brady’s announcement Tuesday he’ll leave the New England Patriots in free agency — in reminding Boston sports fans their teams ultimately will overcome the changes.

Middlebrooks’ message is one of many reactions to Brady’s departure that notable figures in sports and beyond shared Tuesday on social media. Many of the reactions ranged from measured to hysterical, but few connected seemingly separate happenings as coherently and insightfully as Middlebrooks’ tweet.
