Happy Birthday Erick Aybar

Okay, so Erick Aybar turned 26 this past Thursday, but it is the thought that counts...

Here is the audio clip you have all been waiting for:

 

People dismissed Aybar as an all glove, light hitting, baserunning gaffe-prone replacement level Dominican, but what if this half-formed baseball player is actually a budding superstar? To paraphrase the Emperor from the above same movie, (in fact from the same scene as that audio quote above) "As you can see, my young apprentice, other infielders have failed. Now witness the firepower of this fully ARMED and OPERATIONAL battle station!"

Meanwhile, my dog Aybar, who like his namesake is also a Capricorn, the canine Aybar will still not fetch.
