Yes, Aviles cheerleaders are running away like rats.

Iggy cheerleaders don't exist anymore and now pretend they were for Ciriaco all along.
What's even funnier is that softy thinks Ciriaco's 119 career PAs spread over 3 ML seasons is enough to think this guy can hit. (He has 2 BBs in 119 career MLB PAs.)
Forget the 1,080 AAA PAs with a .265 BA and .281 OBP.
(Remember, he called Aviles a AAA player because he has a .285 OBP in MLB, does that make Ciriaco a AA player for having a .281 OBP in AAA?)
Forget that Ciriaco has played in parts of 8 seasons in professional ball. Yes, over 3,500 PAs (about 7 seasons of 500 PAs each). These are his minor league numbers:
Now, I'm fine with a great fielding SS, who may not hit well. I was for Iggy this spring, before I realized Aviles was a much better fielder than advertized, but let's not kid ourselves. We should be riding Ciriaco's hot streak for all it's worth. He should have played instead of Punto last night. But, he will come down to earth someday, and all the posters who claimed Iggy shouldn't play because he can't hit, will be jumping of Pedro's bandwagon as quick as they jumped off Mike's or Iggy's.
