lets not forget this guy has been the type of player we all claim to love "dirt dog" he has been a very good player for a number of years for this team, playing 1st base at a high level, 3rd base at a high level tried his best to fill in at LF and helped win a world series in 07. Obviously the time has come for Middlebrooks to take over at 3rd but lets not forget all that Youkilis has provided over the years and treat him like a piece of garbage.
