Loves Aaron Miles and Snappy Headlines


The (re)acquisition of Cardinals 2B Aaron Miles has fans in a tizzy.  In recent memory, we can’t remember more public ambivalence from the Cardinals contingent since the Tino Martinez days.  Alright, maybe the (re)acquisition of Jeff Suppan compares – which actually occurred 11 days after the Cardinals added Aaron Miles to their roster.  Now we’re confused.  Oh, well.

Anyway, the public outcry against Aaron Miles and his perpetual poopiness hasn’t stopped from glorifying his motor…and effort…and grittiness…and hustle….and attitude.

And doing so with a snappy headline, nevertheless…

Jeff Gordon of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch wrote the column highlighted above.

Among the descriptions used by Mr. Gordon to portray the scrappiness of Aaron Miles and Randy Winn:

  • Fun
  • Grit
  • Smarts
  • Experience
  • Fighting to stay
  • Mental make-up
  • Covert their roles
  • Excellent teammates

Not bad.

Excellent usage of the “Short and Hustling Athlete” rolodex by Mr. Gordon.
