In a move that's less surprising this afternoon than it was this morning, both Will Middlebrooks and Aaron Cook will join the Red Sox in Boston today. [snip] It's too early to say anything about trading Youkilis, or sitting him behind Middlebrooks, or anything that drastic. Middlebrooks has all of 100 successful plate appearances in Triple-A, and he still has things to learn. He's been impressive, and he's a huge talent, but not every up-and-coming prospect succeeds the moment they land in the majors. It's hard to remember now, but even Dustin Pedroia was wholly unimpressive when first pressed into action with the Sox. That being said, if Middlebrooks does succeed with Youkilis on the DL, the Red Sox might have themselves a question to answer. But we're not there yet.
