07:18 AM ET 06.26 | Nearing the All-Star Break, Red Sox manager John Farrell uttered a phrase considered more than unlikely at the start of the season. "Iggy would be our everyday third baseman." Jose Iglesias is the team's regular at third base and Will Middlebrooks is at Triple-A Pawtucket, optioned on Tuesday. "He'll be in the lineup with Pawtucket [Wednesday]," Farrell said of Middlebrooks. "This became about Will getting regular at-bats. He's an important part of us today as much as he is going forward, and for him to get back on track, to make an impact with us, he needs everyday at-bats. That's where he's headed right now." Farrell said there is neither a timetable for Middlebrooks' return nor a set of statistical criteria he could meet that would in effect shuttle him back to Fenway Park.

Wasn't trying to "dictate" where to go - just am fed up with this myopic, misogynistic, ego-centric, malcontent (the man who will rename nameless).

That picture of Vanessa Palestino in Hot Clicks - sure makes her look a lot like Sandra Bullock. The others don't, but this one does.

And I loved the Ravens twittering about the Miami Heat's "victory parade". Funny as all get out.... wonder if it has anything to do with the popularity levels of the Not Basketball Anymore (NBA).

Looks like a short race to the first page turnover.

June 26, 2013  08:25 AM ET

I wonder who will win

June 26, 2013  08:25 AM ET

Sure hope it's not the man who will remain nameless

June 26, 2013  08:26 AM ET

Because that would just stink

June 26, 2013  08:26 AM ET

And I don't want to fully boycott FN today..... other days - but not today

June 26, 2013  08:26 AM ET

So - who is with me?

June 26, 2013  08:26 AM ET

Anyone?

June 26, 2013  08:26 AM ET

Speak up...

June 26, 2013  08:26 AM ET

Meanwhile, Iglesias had another big night at the plate.
