Kevin Youkilis has been placed on the disabled list, according to CSNNE’s Sean McAdam, and the Red Sox have called up top prospect Will Middlebrooks to hop into the vacant third base spot. Unfortunately for Tom Brady’s sister, this means that she probably has to spend actual time with Youkie, her new husband. Gross Fortunately for the Red Sox, and their fans though, nobody has to watch Youk dive for balls he can’t get to near the third base line, strike out and snap his bat and or just generally walk around like a dick.
Watch Middlebrooks hit this bomb off the scoreboard in Triple-A, and get excited. It might a changing of the guard. Or, at the very least, it’s a two-week vacation from having to star at that oft-injured Viking lunatic.
