06:59 AM ET 05.02 | The Yankees, who made a deal Wednesday for Chris Nelson, aren't the only AL East team with depth issues in the infield. [The Blue Jays'] second basemen rank last in the American League in batting average and on-base percentage thanks to the struggles of Maicer Izturis and Emilio Bonifacio. After briefly energizing the fan base, shortstop Munenori Kawasaki has regressed, returning to his career norms at the plate. And then there's the defence. It's been shaky all year. ... [Brendan Ryan in Seattle is] a brilliant defender yet he recently lost his starting role. Robert Andino now shares the shortstop job with Ryan, who has approximately $2.5 million remaining on his $3.25 million salary.

Only on T&R can a .241 career hitter get an article written about him and his picture also on SI. If you are looking for a glove man Brendan is your man.

Judging from his facial hair, I'll bet this guy bought his folks a QUADRUPLE wide trailer with his first ML check.

I can't think of Brendan Ryan without thinking of Chris Carpenter chewing him out on the field after Ryan went to his position at SS without his glove during a game.

Ryan's has outstanding defense skills, but his offense is why he was benched - he has none
