"Aybar, who is expected to open 2008 as the starter (at shortstop)".
Mike DiGiovanna made that comment and wrote a little more about the situation at SS in this article that answers readers comments. Basically, he states that Aybar has unrealized potential, but the hamstrings of Izturis prohibit him from being an everyday player. He speculates that Izzy will start 3 to 4 games a week between 2B, SS and 3B.
So, HH'ers who do you think should start at SS, and more importantly why?
