PhotoShop/Caption Contest: The Willy Aybar Edition

ST PETERSBURG FL - SEPTEMBER 26: Third basemen Willy Aybar #16 of the Tampa Bay Rays miss judges the ball for an error in the 7th inning against the Seattle Mariners at Tropicana Field on September 26 2010 in St. Petersburg Florida. (Photo by Eliot J. Schechter/Getty Images)

There were lots of wonderfully awkward photos from the Mariners series this weekend, so I can't resist sharing at least one of them with you. Willy Aybar is a great guy, but he's certainly no Evan Longoria at third base.

On a more serious note, this may be Willy's last season with the Rays. He's got a $2.2M option for 2011, but considering he's a bench player and limited to 1B/DH, his role can easily be filled with other, cheaper options. Maybe he'll be back, but I doubt the Rays pick up his option and once he's a free agent, odds are he could get more playing time and more money elsewhere. He may not have had much of an impact on the Rays this year, but I'll always remember his well-timed hot streak in 2008. He will be missed, if only for sentimental reasons. 

Oh, and the winner of this contest will have BJ Upton come and personally congratulate you...
