Gasper: Take 'bubble wrap' off Middlebrooks

Chris Gasper joined Sports Tonight to look at where the Sox are at after a 20-day stretch of games.
Gasper was confused about management's decisions regarding rookie Will Middlebrooks.
"The one thing I don't understand is why it seems like Ben Cherington and guys in baseball ops are so against playing Middlebrooks in the outfield."
He believes Middlebrooks should be in the outfield, not high-paid first baseman Adrian Gonzalez.
"If you're going to put your 154 million first baseman, who is widely regarded as the slowest baserunner in all of baseball, in right field instead versus that kid, who was a tremendous athlete and is a tremendous athlete, tell me which guy is better suited athletically to covering ground? Take the bubble wrap off the rookie."

Red Sox outfield "Win, Dance, Repeat" celebration finds its way on MLB the Show 17

Mooke Betts, Jackie Bradley Jr. and a mix of Andrew Benintendi, Brock Holt, Blake Swihart and Chris Young brought postgame celebrations to a new level last season.

The celebration ended with a pose at first, but as seen the MLB the Show 17's freshly released trailer, a few more wrinkes were added in.

In fact, here's a taste of the celebrations and what else to expect from Playstation's 2017 MLB game:
