Aurilia tells The Sports Virus: “…I want guys up the middle that make routine plays. Anyone can make a great play…but give me the guy who can make the play right at him, turn the easy double play. (The Giants) have two guys right now (Crawford and Panik), that’s exactly what they do. They work on the fundamentals of the game and it shows in their play.”
