"It's hard to find a guy who can play shortstop every day that isn't playing shortstop every day. There's not too many of those guys around. From the day Cabby went down, I don't think Mike's had a day off, and he's played a quality shortstop. That's a hard guy to find. I was ecstatic the day we got him, and I'm every bit as happy that we have him now."
--Indians manager Terry Francona, on Mike Aviles filling in for injured shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera
