Man, I hate to see rookies come on to the scene on fire and then peter out like that. Well, he's still got time left of course, and like you said injuries could be a part of why he's doing so poorly. I guess what I'm getting at is that I think that, even if it's in a place like Boston or New York, that it's good for excellent young talent to come into the league. Ergo, seeing Middlebrooks play like that when he showed some promise is a bit disheartening.
Still have hope for the kid.
