How good has Yunel Escobar been this season? He's been amazing. And to think he will be on the team and be cheap until 2015? That's just awesome.
Here's his nuts toss from yesterday's game. Name a Rays shortstop who has had a stronger arm than Yunel. It's been a long time since Julio Lugo, but he's the only comparable SS, I think. And even then, I can't remember Lugo having a game like Escobar's July 4th game.
Tarry forth, oh ill-reputed, ever-misunderstood middle-bagger.
