I'm sure fans will be severely disappointed if Iglesias doesn't play regularly. Brandon Synder has impressed me for sure, but his sample size with the team is only a week. As much as Red Sox Nation may be impressed with this guy, he'll probably be the first candidate to go down if and when they call Middlebrooks back up. Of course, it could still be a while before Middlebrooks gets called up. The best solution would be to leave Middlebrooks down another week or two and give Snyder more time. That would make the most sense to me because Will Middlebrooks needs more time to get his confidence back to where it needs to be and it gives Brandon Snyder an extended taste of what the majors are like.
This is good news for Red Sox fans because it shows the depth of the team. Right now, the team is into the second and third options in some positions and we were the first team to 50 wins in the American League. When we started getting key injuries, I was concerned that the team would fall apart, but that hasn't been a problem....at least so far. I might have just jinxed it, but I don't think so (knock on wood).
