YouTube: Ciriaco, Punto, Or Valencia At Third?

Who will be replacing most of Will Middlebrooks' playing time at third base for the rest of 2012? (Mandatory Credit: Bob DeChiara-US PRESSWIRE)

The Boston Red Sox had third base all figured out, despite injuries to Kevin Youkilis, thanks to the emergence of prospect Will Middlebrooks. That isn't the case anymore, though, as Youkilis has (rightfully) been dealt after losing his job, and Middlebrooks suffered a fluke injury when he broke his wrist on a hit by pitch against the Indians.

Now, the Red Sox have no reliable answer for their third base woes, but they aren't lacking in options. They have Pedro Ciriaco, who has been exciting to watch this summer; Nick Punto, who was signed as a sure-handed utility infielder this past off-season; and finally, Danny Valencia, who the Red Sox presciently acquired for a song before Middlebrooks was hurt.

Which of these three, and how they should be used, is today's topic in our latest Over the Monster YouTube video. Both the video and a poll can be found after the jump, and, as always, you can find the rest of our videos either on the right sidebar, or at our official YouTube page.
