    Edwin Encarnacion

    Is this kid showcasing his power or what? Hit his 4th homerun today. My goodness. I got to believe Rich Aurillia won't be taking his starting nod at 3rd.

    Are you serious? If Rich Aurilia starts at third it would be an asbolute crime.

    Last year, Miley committed a similar crime by giving Rich Aurilia the starting nod even though Lopez outplayed him in Spring Training.

    Of course, Narron is no Miley...

    Wow...EE is having a hell of a spring. He really needs to improve his fielding though, he had an error today.

    If Narron doesn't have Eddy out there Opening Day...I might have to shoot him.

    Yeah, it was a short hop error too, those are generally a pain in the arse and can go either way it the fielder doesn't look too ugly attempting the pick up.

    There is a difference between the Lopez and EE situation. Lopez was coming off the ankle injury and had been a major disappointment to date. While he clearly outplayed Aurilia in the spring, he had done nothing but look like a toolsy bust up to breaking out last year. OTH, EE has proven himself at every level, is two years younger, and was plugged in as the regular last year and did not totally embarrass himself.

    I really don't think its a valid comparison and EE will be starting at 3B on OD.

    Anyone know if he got enough at bats last year to take away his rookie status?

    I think it would be great if on Opening Day, Narron pencils in Aurilia at 3B. Then, just before the first pitch, yells "SYKE!" and sends EE in for Ol' Weakswing McPlayme.

    It's not apples to apples, but it's not apples to oranges, either. It's more like apples to pears.

    Both Lopez and EE are youngsters competing with a Proven Veteran(TM) for a starting position. Both Miley and Narron have stated that they don't want to hand the job to a kid on a silver platter. Both Miley and Narron have stated that the starting position will go to whoever earns it in Spring Training.

    Granted, there are several differences which you pointed out, but the one significant similarity might end up being the managers' distrust of young players and devotion to Proven Veterans(TM).
