Hayes vs. Marzano Cage Match

I'm haven't been much of a fan of Marcus Hayes in the past, but watching him absolutely destroy John Marzano on Daily News Live last night was one of the funniest and most refreshing media moments in this town in recent memory.

Marzano interrupted Barkann to interject this little pearl of wisdom, into which he'd apparently put some thought: Abreu frequently stops at second base on possible triples, because he's trying to pad his doubles. Hayes responded, incredulously, "Pad his doubles?"

Johnny Marz went on to spout the typical lines about Abreu, saying he doesn't play all out (particularly in the field), comparing him to Pat Burrell. Hayes correctly pointed out that Burrell doesn't crash into walls either, and has had maybe two diving catches all season.

Hayes coup de grace was when he said to Marzano, "why don't you do what Bowa did, call Eskin and say 'Abreu's a dog, get him off my team for me.'"

Also, he went on to use stats to blow up the "Abreu was ruined by the Home Run Derby" myth.

Good stuff all around. Let's hope for more of the new Marcus Hayes.
