    Re: Aristides Aquino

    How good is Aquino?

    He seems like he’s back on top this year in a big way, but he dropped off the planet the last couple years. Who is this guy really?

    He’s built like a house and has a cannon in RF. Is this a mirage or is there something to this?

    .316/.364/.561 as of tonight

    Ervin/Aquino/O'Grady/VanMeter are/were dominating AAA, which, I don't think was expected by anyone?

    Aquino was by me.

    What happened to Aquino. He clubbed two HR's and is listed as temporarily inactive.

    Aquino tonight went 2 for 3 with a HR and a BB.

    He’s now OPSing 1.024.

    Aquino’s home run was important. It was a top of the ninth home run making the score 3-4.

    Re: Aristides Aquino

    I have attended 28 innings of Bats’ games 58 thru 61.

    Aquino has had 7 plate appearances.

    2 singles and the important 9th inning home run making the score 3-4.

    Aquino did come up in Bats’ Game 61 in the 6th inning in a 2-2 tie with men on the corners and two outs, but made an out.

    As I have attended 28 innings of Bats’’ games 58 thru 61, Aquino is being blocked by Ervin who is sick for games 60 and 61 (Aquino’s only plate appearances).

    Aquino had been on the temporarily inactive list for an non-disclosed reason.

    He was giving a lecture on his groundbreaking theory that existence itself is semiotic (because a guy named Aristides has to be either a philosopher or a mathematician).

    Actually, Aristides was an Athenian general and statesman.

    More, his success is a mirage. He's got a .405 BABIP.

    Maybe Aquino turned a corner - I sure hope he has - but, like others have said in this thread, let's be sure he has before throwing him into the fire.
    No way he could help this club. We were in 4th place for a day
