A Great Day for Red Sox Nation
Who and why was everyone saying Jackie Bradley Jr. is our savior; our real savior is Will Middlebrooks. JBJ is only getting good hype because it's a nice underdog story on how he made the team. He is hitting .187!
Today, Will Middlebrooks, the real Red Sox savior, hit 3 homeruns today against division rival Toronto Blue Jays! That ties a Boston Red Sox record. And apparently, his hitting is contagious! The Red Sox rocked former Cy Young award winner R.A Dickey and ended up hitting 6 homers! Middlebrooks ended the day with 3 home runs and a double.
With the help of the young rising star, Middlebrooks, the Red Sox are 4-2 and have won their first two series for the first time since 2006. This is hopefully a good sign for a team that is in a tough division and had incredibly low expectations before the season started.
Maybe the Red Sox aren't going to be as bad as everyone thought.....
