Trout is more than a leadoff man. You do watch him right? He's incredible in the field, far better than Middlebrooks ever will be at 3rd. Also Trout helps create RBI opportunities with his base running and good BA; plus he drives runs in since he's got almost 30 RBI so far. I can't even believe you'd think Middlebrooks compares to Trout really.
Boston's lineup is built around Papi and Gonzalez. lol @ it being built around MIddlebrooks. Look I like Will. He's gonna be a good to great player. You're really overrating him though since he's gotten hot again.
Bro... Please. You haven't watched baseball in five years prior to this season. Show me some statistics that back your claims up. Middlebrooks numbers are greater than Trout's offensively and the impact has been the same between the two. You're just speaking from a point of bias cause you're on Trout's nuts. Do you at least have some proof that he's a better fielder than Will? And how the fuck are you comparing the hot corner to a CF anyways? Better numbers, less games, both have ignitied teams...
Built around Papi and Adrian? What's Adrian hitting these days? 6th and 7th? Lolz pls go.
