Are you expected to be funny this time? Or serious?
2005-11-30 14:48:38
2.   Jon Weisman
Less serious, but still not funny enough.

I'll call Bruce Vilanch for help.

Please talk about Aybar and Choi. They need all the press they can get.

Funny how Aybar has taken over the tender spot in DT posters' hearts once reserved for Antonio Perez. "Aybar: So Good" is a subtheme of many threads of the past few weeks. AP must be feeling a bit jilted. It used to be him and Choi, but no more.

I still like Perez, but Aybar is younger and can play 3B. I'd much rather start the season with Perez at SS over Robles personally

Wouldn't that be something if Colletti and his TBD manager (speaking of which, see new post above) could convince the world that Perez should start somewhere?

I'm the founder of and director of marketing for the Willy Aybar Fan club. We had a great Aybar discussion going on until talk of the Lakers invaded the thread...

I'm still a fan of Antonio Perez. The difference is that Aybar actually plays defense and he almost had as many walks as Perez in 173 fewer at bats.

Perez plays some pretty good defense himself.

9 -- Isn't it that he just plays better defense than people (including me) think? Not that that would be hard to do. I remember this discussion many moons ago, and I thought he was about the same in the fancy stats as Robles, which is to say average. All I remember is really what a turd blossom Mike Edwards was.

10 You're right. He has a very good zone rating, but is mediocre elsewhere.

Just thinking of this issue makes me want to rip holes in Jim Tracy all over again for the very first time.

Just looked this up, Aybar was almost as bad as Edwards defensively, putting up an 89 rate2 (Edwards was 87) and a 0 FRAR vs. -1 for Edwards.

What is with all the sounds over the broadcast?

Somehow the computer is closer to the mic than the host.

really annoying!

13- that's in limited time, Aybar's defensive stats in the minors were impressive, especially at 3B.

It's fun to listen to Jon, although I find the interview to be a bit rambling and unstructured. And that weird periodic computer noise is annoying.

Ahh, the ubiquitous AIM sound.

Ahh, so that wasn't some inner voice chiming in my head then was it?

Well done, Jon.
