Questioning Erick Aybar’s 2014 season

The disagreement, as it always does with Aybar, revolves...

Point/Counterpoint: Should Erick Aybar Bat Leadoff?

Absolutely! By Glen McKee, AngelsWin.com Columnist & Satirist It’s a fact that your leadoff hitter will get more at-bats than anybody else in the lineup, over a period of time.  You’d think that means your best hitter – MIKE TROUT! – should fill that spot, and indeed that makes a certain amount of sense.  However, I think that this year, as with last year, we’re gonna...
