Rich Aurilia Is In Need Of Perpetual Motherly Attention 

Something has bothered me about the Rich Aurilia deal since it first surfaced a few weeks ago, but I haven't been able to place it. Call it a feeling of genereal uneasiness regarding Aurilia, that until today has been shrouded in mystery. Like a ton of bricks, it finally hit me: Rich Aurilia is Organized Baseball's biggest crybaby since Paul O'Neill, hands down. This guy throws bats, helmets, gloves, water coolers, and anything else that isn't bolted down. Plus, every time he strikes out (which is a lot), he looks like steam should start shooting out of his ears any minute. Somewhere, early in Little Richie's development, no one hammered down the point that that behavior is embarassing to just about everybody.

I waver between pro-Guillen and pro-Aurilia in my analysis of the two shortstops, but crybaby factor eventually swings things in Guillen's favor every time. We'll miss you, Carlos.
