What Aviles Said About Iggy ... sounds good

With Aviles off to Toronto, the Red Sox will need a new shortstop. He believes rookie Jose Iglesias can handle the job.
“That kid is special. He does things in the field I’ve never seen anybody do and I know I can’t do,” Aviles said. “His hand-eye coordination in the field is amazing and it’s only a matter of time before that translates into hitting for him. It will happen.
“I like Jose a lot. I was planning to talk to him a lot in the winter and I still will. He can do the job and I hope they give him the chance. It’s fun to watch him play.” from Boston Globe atricle
High praise. Makes me feel even better about Iggy.

Classy act by Aviles even though he got traded away for a manager. It's hard to compliment someone on the same team with same position as he is who took away his playing time.
