Rob Johnson takes Aaron Miles to the next level

The epitome of the scrappy utilityman, Aaron Miles played for the St. Louis Cardinals from 2006 to 2008 and again in 2010. A second baseman by trade, he appeared all over the diamond – at every position on the field with the exception of first base and catcher.

Buy and Sell Calls for Cellar Dwellers
