Stewart: “Touted as a defensive catcher is an honor for me”

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Apr 05, 2012 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

The Yankees first signed Chris Stewart in 2008. He caught one big league game that season, then the Yankees made a small trade to get him back the following year. Yesterday, they traded for him a second time, and this time they plan to carry him as their big league backup.

“It’s not like it’s some Podunk team from nowhere trying to get me,” Stewart said. “It’s the New York Yankees. With the prestige and everything that goes on around here, it’s nice to be wanted not just by any team but by the Yankees themselves.”

Why do the Yankees like him enough to keep bringing him back? And why do they think he can be a big league backup with his limited big league experience?

“Chris Stewart is an exceptional defensive player, right out of the Jose Molina mold,” Brian Cashman said. “(Francisco) Cervelli is obviously a better hitter than he is.”

Stewart is here to catch, and he does that very well. When he learned about the trade, he was already in San Francisco with the Giants. He didn’t want to leave his car there, so he made the seven-hour drive to his home in Southern California, where he packed some of the dark blue catching gear he had leftover from stints with the Yankees and Padres, then he caught a red-eye flight to Tampa. He landed at 9 this morning and arrived at today’s workout on the team bus. He also knows most of the guys in the clubhouse.

“It’s going to be a quick learning experience (and) go get ‘em tomorrow,” Stewart said. “I’ve got to cram as much information into my head as I can tonight and early tomorrow and be ready if my name gets called tomorrow. I caught a lot of these guys before so I know what they have, and I’ve faced the others a good majority of the time, so I have a good idea. Now it’s just finalizing their game plans and what they’re tring to think out there on the mound. … My baseball goal pretty much is to take care of the pitchers behind the plate — and whatever I can chip in offensively I’m going to take as well — but my goal is to try to get those pitchers through the game with the least amount of runs as possible. To be touted as a defensive catcher is an honor for me.”

    Hello again,

    Seems that being a good defensive catcher nowadays is a batch of honour in Yankee land

    He fits right in to the Girardi’s mold

    OK, fanboys and fangirls, here’s where your favorite prospects are playing. Stoneburner has been dropped from the top 20 list because he didn’t want a bunch of slugs following him around and doesn’t think anybody should talk about him.

    “He fits right in to the Girardi’s mold”

    He better not accidentally hit a HR or do anything positive on offense, or he will be in Girardi’s doghouse.

    Can’t believe how Hal is pandering to the fake GMs about the soft cap. He knows they get more excited about pretending they’re constructing the budget than about actually winning anything.

    Meanwhile, he’s going on record that Banuelos and Betances better step it up and progress quick so they can help the Yankees stay under the cap…too much.

    Hal and Cashman, can you just quietly think your foolish thoughts, make your dumb moves and…shut up??? Nobody wants to hear you complain about the CBA. Nix that, apparently everyone wants to hear it; it’s like an aphrodisiac to some, I suppose :roll:

    JAP,

    Did you see the game between the Sux and the Tigers? Verlander seems to be in top form. I didn’t see the game. Was Melancon leaving the ball up? What about Aceves, do you think he will make a good closer?

    Luis, did you also make the mistake of wanting Girardi over Mattingly?? The irony for me is, one of the reasons I wanted him was because I thought, as a former catcher (who, reluctantly or not, helped mentor Posada), he’d be very helpful in Jesus’ evolution as a catcher. Never did I imagine he would fold before that apprenticeship had a chance.

  18. 4 NYY April 5th, 2012 at 10:49 pm

    Melancon, as I said when sux got him, is not gonna fair well as a closer. Even though Aceves didn’t get it done today, he’s the better choice.

    Luis :D
    I was watching with one eye and pretending to do some work at the same time. Verlander looked good, though 94 was the highest reading I saw, so either I missed those 97s or his velo’s not quite there yet.

    Melancon didn’t have his usual sinking fastball and wasn’t inducing groundballs. I think Ace is versatile, but I’d say it’s a waste to make him your closer. Did you miss the game? The Son is on tomorrow night at 10 p.m. ET, I believe. I won’t get to tune in until about an hour in, most likely, since I’ll be making my way back from Allentown, Pa. for the Betances start. As soon as Dellin’s out, though, I’m out of that park.

    I’ll have to watch Yanks on MLB.tv via computer, as we’re leaving early to get out there comfortably.

    At the time I thought Mattingly was too green to take the helm, and I was so sick of Torre that I thought he would be a continuation of his rule. I have always thought that catchers make very good managers, I thought Girardi did a good job with the Marlins. But my favorite for the job then was Tony Pena. Mainly because I thought the team needed to break up with the Torre philosophy.

I think Pena makes sense as the next guy, for the reasons you and I have already discussed ;).

He hasn’t which is good, but I agree with you about him being a slave of the book, worse he doesn’t do anything before consulting his binder. He lacks feel for the game and never thinks out of the box. Pena being a Latino would tend to play what we call down here Caribbean baseball, which about playing always outside the box.

    Oh hyperbole, your favorite!! No, but he should have more trade value than a player that is easily acquirable off a scrapheap or a waiver wire. Jose Molina was acquired for a player just like Kontos, and Jose Molina is a real catcher.

    For the record, I strongly wanted Mattingly or Pena for the managers job after Torre. Most of this board was pro-Girardi.

    Girardi will only support catchers in his image. Gary Sanchez better stop hitting if he wants to be a Yankee. The team has decided that having a national league lineup with Rey Ordonez behind the plate is what will win in this league. Someone in the organization is pumping up catcher defense over all other positions. There’s a paradigm shift and it seemed to coincide with Girardi being named manager and Jorge getting old.

    So, if I misunderstood your post, I apologize.

    I was reacting to the general noise I sometimes see directed at anyone who thinks the Yankees aren’t well run.

  74. GreenBeret7 April 5th, 2012 at 11:43 pm

    NYYs have pitchers in the organization that are better and just waiting for the chance. All of them will not be starters. Whelan is the same pitcher as Kontos. Would the uproar over a minor league trade involving Whelan be as much? Who really cares? Only on here. Craig Heyer could join the bullpen in NY and pitch 6 innings with the same results. The difference between them is that Kontos is homer prone.

    Whelan was DFA’d to make room for Kuroda, which is atleast an understandable move. They paid 10 mil for Kuroda and needed a spot. They did not NEED to trade Kontos ( a player that they could keep for this year as bullpen relief, or even next season!) for a player readily available off scrapheaps around mlb. You continue to misrepresent the opposition to the trade. If they had traded Whelan for a minor league player, there would only be uproar if the player they got for him was one of those types that are easy to acquire for free.

  85. darbodla April 5th, 2012 at 11:51 pm

    Seems like so many on this blog just gripe. It’s an honor to watch this team compete every year for a ring. Who cares who the backup catcher is. Cashman has done a masterful job; getting an arm like Pineda for Montero was a very good deal as pitching wins and this team has plenty of hitting. There was no place for Montero. Picking up Kuroda was another stellar move and he will prove that the NL-AL gap is exaggerated. He can pitch. We have a deep rotation, the best infield in baseball as well as speed and power in the outfield and who wouldn’t want our pen anchored by the best closer in history. Chavez is healthy and Jones is as well and we have pitching depth in AAA. Can’t wait until tomorrow!

  86. Tar April 5th, 2012 at 11:52 pm

    “He had more value than what they got rid of him for, which is the point.”

    Perhaps you are undervaluing peace of mind.

    “If we had a problem and all of a sudden we’re vulnerable, and I went out of my way to look for someone to fix it, it’s going to cost,” Cashman said. “At that position it’s going to cost. Now, I don’t feel as vulnerable.”

    “(We perhaps could have gotten more for Kontos, but his velo is down and he is going to turn 27 soon…)”

    My problem isn’t even that they traded him for virtually nothing. It’s that the virtually nothing will get too many virtually nothing AB.

  88. Jerkface April 5th, 2012 at 11:53 pm

    significant help, based on what?

    Based on the fact that he was very good in AAA and is the only Reliever on the 40 man. So he would have been one of the first up if they needed some bullpen help.

    ________________________

    This requires ignoring the substance of the “noise”.

    Within the hour the best criticism you could mount of Joe Girardi was that any team with a $200m payroll in baseball should always win 97 games a year.

    This empty criticism ignores his postseason winning percentage, both in total games and series won, is even better than that.

    Again, not about there being criticism, it’s about the low quality of it.

    Always will be.

  91. GreenBeret7 April 5th, 2012 at 11:55 pm

    TankeeFem, same as always. 89-91 fastball, changes and curves…everything down and nothing hit hard. 4.2 innings a walk and a couple of hits, 0 runs. he doesn’t ever look spectacular…just gets outs. Doesn’t make hitters look foolish, but, it works for him.

  92. m April 5th, 2012 at 11:55 pm

    Jerkface,

    You’re a good dude. But you’re in your own little island on this one. No one, not even Kontos’ own mother is complaining this much. Kontos was buried on the depth chart. Do you think he would have gotten called up first? Scratch that, of course you believe that.

    Uh as a reliever? Yea. Buddy Carlyle was on the team in first 2 months last year. Its the nature of the beast. They aren’t going to call up a starter to become a reliever if they need emergency bullpen help, they will call up a reliever on the 40 man. Thats how Amauri Sanit got time in may last year.

    “No worries, Rich, but I think you whiffed on both of those comments. 0-2 count, protect the plate!”

    Infact, Kontos wasn’t on the 40 man until september, so he has all 3 options. They could have kept him around for 3 more seasons as potential bullpen help but shipped him off unnecessarily for a valueless player.

  116. EA April 6th, 2012 at 12:11 am

    Girardi is a yes-man of the highest order – which is why the organization hired him in the 1st place after Torre. He is an extension of Cashman

    I’m hardly a fan of him, but the buck stops with Cashman. If Cashman wanted Jesus to catch, Girardi would listen.

    Perhaps this has become like a Rex Ryan-Mike T. relationship where the GM has now adopted the philosophies of the coach/manager. Still, he is the GM and has final say on everything.

    I just think this has become Cashman’s style now – impulsive and outdated in his views, and highly outspoken and frankly, quite clueless. His plan is inconsistent and has more faith in players from other teams than he does his own guys.

  137. darbodla April 6th, 2012 at 12:27 am

    I think the reason Montero isn’t here is the following:

    1. The Yankee organization after seeing him for a number of seasons concluded that he was not going to be a good major league catcher.

    2. There was no place for him on this team if he wasn’t going to catch.

    3. Starting pitching is valuable and the opportunity to get a good young arm like Pineda with great upside potential could not be ignored.

    Girardi had nothing to do with it.

    This is so ridiculous I shouldn’t bother responding, but what the heck.

    If Montero turns out to be a .875 or better hitter, as many “experts” expect, there isn’t a team in MLB that wouldn’t find a place for him, including the Yankees, with key offensive players aging/declining (if not this year, then soon).

  144. m April 6th, 2012 at 12:33 am

    Cashman has been trying to trade Montero since 09 – before Girardi even became an established manager, before the WS win, back when he was coming off a no-playoff year and had enormous pressure on him.

    Cashman himself said he was trying to get Russell Martin from LA for years – presumably, before Girardi even was established here.

    So this Montero/catching link to Girardi doesn’t seem to fit. Unless Cashman was giving Girardi serious input on roster decisions when he wasn’t even guaranteed to be the manager the following year… these new Cashman ideologies are not new. He tried to unsuccessfully trade Montero 3 years ago, unsuccessfully tried to get Martin as well.

    “There was no place for him on this team if he wasn’t going to catch.”

    This is so ridiculous I shouldn’t bother responding, but what the heck.

    If Montero turns out to be a .875 or better hitter, as many “experts” expect, there isn’t a team in MLB that wouldn’t find a place for him, including the Yankees, with key offensive players aging/declining (if not this year, then soon).

    Your “if Montero” is pure speculation. And many “experts” turn out to be wrong. Cashman got a young stud arm, that much was not speculation. I also believe as does most baseball management that good starting pitching is a team’s most important asset.

    Never could understand how money had a damned thing to do with trading Montero. Montero and Pineda make pretty much the same money and will for quite some time. Getting a big bat will cost just as much as getting a big arm.

    This ongoing idiocy that Girardi doesn’t want a catcher on the team that was a better hitter than him is beyond belief. If that were the case, this team wouldn’t have any catchers. Martin hit half of Girardi’s career home run total and has driven in more runs in 4 different years than Girardi’s career high of 55, They have the same BA and steals more bases. he should never have been allowed on the team.

  154. m April 6th, 2012 at 12:44 am

    So what you’re saying is a circle jerk is a disgusting group think session? I give you that. I used to hate the group think thing because it was said to anyone who was pro-organization. Even though we disagreed on many things.

    But when it comes to Girardi and the same group of people who all jump in and blame him for things that you don’t even know is true, that’s just a big circle jerk.

    I’ll stop using that term now. Gross, stuckey!

    We had plenty of pitching depth….only one bat above A ball…we traded the only bat for another pitcher that may or may not reach his ceiling, that was another especulation. We traded to “if’s” , one that we didn’t have many, for one that we have plenty. Doesn’t makes sense no matter how you look at it.

  156. Rich in NJ April 6th, 2012 at 12:46 am

    “Never could understand how money had a damned thing to do with trading Montero. Montero and Pineda make pretty much the same money and will for quite some time. Getting a big bat will cost just as much as getting a big arm.”

    That’s actually true, but when you believe that “pitching is the keys to the kingdom,” then you can understand how the Yankees under Cashman would be willing to allocate resources toward a big pitcher rather than a big hitter. Therein lies the money connection.

    “I also believe as does most baseball management that good starting pitching is a team’s most important asset.”

    Except we already had a farm flushed with pitching, but one devoid of power bats. Trading Jesus was a poor allocation of resources for what the team has and will need in the immediate future.

    Pineda was a luxury. Montero, as soon as mid-season this year or next year, has a very good chance of being a necessity.

    He has managed the pitchers very well. But he lacks feel of the game and is incapable of thinking outside the box. I am not saying that he has been a bad manager, but we could do better.

    Cashmoney

    I don’t think anyone is sure of anything until after the fact. We all offer opinions here, right?

    I don’t like Girardi’s mechanistic style of managing.

    As for player personnel decisions, it’s true that we don’t know where Girardi leaves off and Cashman begins. It’s certainly possible that everything I don’t like about Girardi’s personnel/roster deployment is on Cashman.

    But Cashman has said when Torre was the manager that he gave a manager the ability to have some control over roster construction, particularly with marginal decisions.

    So I think it’s reasonable to think that Girardi wanted Ibanez.

    I think it’s reasonable to think that Girardi wanted to use Romine over Montero at catcher as the season wore down.

    With that in mind, I think it’s reasonable to suspect that Girardi prefers defensive catchers.

    As for the $200m figure, what team in MLB gets dollar for dollar contributions, especially with high priced veterans?

    I would argue none.

    Yet I think it’s indisputable that Girardi has more talent at hand than any team except perhaps Texas.

  179. darbodla April 6th, 2012 at 1:07 am

    Yankee management knows far more than bloggers here, especially after seeing Montero for years. They are far more qualified to assess how good a catcher he will be and how to best manage the roster. I think Cashman is very good at his job, one of the best in the business. He made this deal with eyes wide open.

  180. Cashmoney April 6th, 2012 at 1:08 am

    maybe so, you could always look at that way or maybe you could do worse in this case with Mattingly, which is the person that is in discussion right now. I tend to think most intelligent human being learn from their mistakes and evolves …. managing in NY is a dif animal than most of other city. I am simply saying Joe aint bad. for that matter, nor is cashman, r they the best in business, not so sure.

    You can like what you want, but pitchers, especially under 26, are extremely fragile. We have already seen small signs with Pineda.

    This team did not hit well v. RHP last season (under .800 OPS), and has two key offensive players pushing 40.

    But I don’t want to discuss the stupid trade. That’s not why I don’t like Giradi.

    Thanks for that article, GB7. It’s early in the season, so good pitching in general and poor offensive showing in Japan is not something to read too much into. But the fact is that there’s a lot of good pitching out there. Not just mediocre pitchers playing over their heads.

    Why did that Sherman article have a picture if Hughes when his name wasn’t even mentioned? I hope Petti-Neda make a big impact for us.

  203. GreenBeret7 April 6th, 2012 at 2:54 am

    Any time, m. Not sure why the photo of Hughes. Is he now the poster child of the new movement and no longer the punching bag of the media? Could the Lohuddians be far behind? He will be worth watching.

    I’ll do what I did a couple of years ago when they all harped on his run support. What nobody ever mentioned was that 1/3rd of the so called support came after he was out of the game. That means that a lot of those games were closer than they appeared, before NY would blow the games open.

  204. Pat M. April 6th, 2012 at 2:56 am

    Team LoHud is a fractured mess, with egos running amok with the dire need to be right so these individuals feel a sense of belonging……But they’re only dragging the club down…….Time to trade the few off for a backup catcher for The Sally League…….Maybe a box of used Rawlings PB balls could be had for a Jerkface…….

  205. GreenBeret7 April 6th, 2012 at 3:25 am

    Pat,

    I’d hate to overpay to move Jerky out when the used baseballs could be used for something good.

    I was looking at Hughes games in 2010 and were generally just fine. He had 6 games where he allowed 5 runs or more, and didn’t win any of them. His worst two games of the year came with 9 and 10 days rest. he dod have 3 games that he allowed 3 runs or less that he got 2 losses and a no decision…so he easily could have been a 21 game winner. even last year after his return, he made 11 starts and 8 games were 2 runs or less. those other 3, he got bombed by Oakland twice and Boston, but he took a few losses and no decisions in those games of 2 runs or less.

    Nobody ever points to Sabathia’s run support, oddly enough. Hughes has some bad games, but, not enough to take these hits. I expect a fine season, though, it will never please people because he wom’t strikeout 175 to 200 a year.

  206. Crawdaddy April 6th, 2012 at 4:39 am

    “I don’t like Girardi’s mechanistic style of managing.”

    I don’t like his managerial style either. He is not as intuitive as I expected him to be with his managerial tendencies.

    “I think it’s reasonable to think that Girardi wanted to use Romine over Montero at catcher as the season wore down.”

    IMO, I think Girardi doesn’t think Montero can be a league average catcher now or ever. I wouldnt’ be surprise if Pena felt the same way.

    “With that in mind, I think it’s reasonable to suspect that Girardi prefers defensive catchers.”

    I think Girardi can live with a league average defensive catcher that has significant offensive skills. However, he would prefer such a catcher to have a backup that had significant defensive skills.

    The Reds and Rangers are working towards contract extensions with Brandon Phillips [30] and Ian Kinsler[29], respectively, and ESPN’s Jim Bowden says (on Twitter) there’s some work left to be done on each. Phillips is expected to get $12.5-13MM annually, Kinsler $13.5-14MM.

    Good morning. If those two get extended at those figures can Cano[29] get/deserve significantly more?

    Looking at last years stats:
    Best fielding %-Phillips .992, Cano .987, Kinsler .984
    BA-Cano .302, Phillips .300, Kinsler .255 All had 610-623 AB’s
    Best OB%-Kinsler .355, Phillips .354, Cano .349
    Best Slugging%-Cano .533, Kinsler .477, Phillips .457
    Homers- Kinsler 32, Cano 28, Phillips 18
    SB-Kinsler 30, Phillips 14, Cano 8

    Thoughts?

    If those two get extended at those numbers then that’ll be good news for the Yanks…..but something tells me Boras will use Matt Kemp as more of a comp for Cano’s deal……they really need to try and extend him now…….they wont though and they’ll end up paying him 20 million per til he’s 40……

  215. RadioKev April 6th, 2012 at 7:39 am

    In either case, I don’t want the Yankees getting killed on a Cano deal. They do need a walk away point. I hope they’re working on it…

  216. Yankee Trader April 6th, 2012 at 7:41 am

  217. blake April 6th, 2012 at 7:47 am

    The Yankees currently have two ideas that don’t really mesh together……they wont to operate on a budget and they want to get below 189 but at the same time they want to stick to their old mantra of no negotiating with players during an existing contract……that doesn’t work….you can’t maximize your payroll and also be willing to outbid everyone in free agency to retain your players…..so something has to give……either they are going to have to bend the budget for special players…….or they are going to have to bend their rule for special players…..

  219. blake April 6th, 2012 at 7:50 am

    If Hughes has a good season and they see him as a rotation fixture going forward then they should offer him a team friendly extension as well this winter and see if he bites….if they want to operate like a bigger scale TB Rays……then they need to operate like a bigger scale TB Rays and save money when they can so that they can actually maximize that 189 payroll number.

  220. Yankee Trader April 6th, 2012 at 7:52 am

    It’s not really fair to compare Kemp and Cano since they play two different positions. Votto got that contract when compared to the other highly paid first baseman. But let’s say Boras makes a case that Cano[29] deserves what Kemp[27] gets.

    Based only on last years stats:
    Best Fielding %-Cano .987, Kemp .986
    Best BA Kemp .324, Cano .302
    Best OB%- Kemp .399, Cano .349
    Best Slugging%-Kemp .586, Cano .533
    Homers- Kemp 40, Cano 28
    SB Kemp 40, Cano 8

    Now does anyone feel that Cano deserves 7-8M more than Kinsler and Phillips, or even the equal of Kemp?

  221. randy l. April 6th, 2012 at 7:55 am

    “either they are going to have to bend the budget for special players…….or they are going to have to bend their rule for special players…..”

    blake-

    they probably need new management to think about things differently.

    this one is too entrenched in what they have been doing under the old rules.

    How does Kemp deserve the amount of money he got? That’s the better question. Cano plays a far more premium position, and he’s been a more consistently excellent player.

  223. Yankee Trader April 6th, 2012 at 7:56 am

    Blake-

    I’m not sure that the Yankees will now stick to no contract extension negotiations and wait until key players become FA’s. The disadvantage the Yankees have, is virtually all but about 2 other teams, the Red Sox and Phillies, still have plenty of room to overpay for key free agents and still stay under the LT cap.

  224. blake April 6th, 2012 at 8:00 am

    “How does Kemp deserve the amount of money he got? That’s the better question. Cano plays a far more premium position, and he’s been a more consistently excellent player.”

    CF is a pretty premium position and he’s actually two years younger than Cano…..that Kemp extension was probably a bargain for the Dodgers when you compare it to some of the contracts that were given out this winter…..Id much rather have Kemp for the next 10 years than Fielder or Votto…..and he got less than both of them.

  225. Yankee Trader April 6th, 2012 at 8:00 am

    RadioKev-

    Good point. However can you name a better consistent second baseman than Brandon Phillips, who is probably the current 2nd best second baseman after Cano and less than one year older?

  226. Yankee Trader April 6th, 2012 at 8:02 am

    New Post—->

    Thoughts again if Cano deserves/gets more than Kinsler or Phillips?

  227. blake April 6th, 2012 at 8:02 am

    “this one is too entrenched in what they have been doing under the old rules.”

    I think they are sorta at a turning point……if they are going to embrace this new CBA and lower payroll then they have already shifted away from what George would have done to some degree…..so they might as well become more efficient to compensate for it…..what they can’t do is change one thing ans keep the other the same….because that makes no sense at all.

    I watched Tigers Red Sox with both eyes open. Verlander hit 97 a few times, his 4 pitches were stellar, you have a better chance winning at power ball then getting a 2 strike hit off him, he’s hands down the best starter in Baseball. Melancon gave up two hits, one should have been caught, Aceves inherited two runners, faced two batters, hit one, and A-Jax (3 hits on the day) stroked a rope walk off hit past the diving Punto at 3rd base.

    Detroit’s line-up lethal, 5 hits from 7-8 in the line-up, Cabrera and Fielder in the middle are scary, they rolled over some pitches so they are susceptible to the DP and their D is suspect.

    Boston’s out field D was terrible, that’s what lost them that game,. Lester looked very sharp. Aceves was a great middle reliever he got the ball to Bard and Papelbon in 2011, their pen
    has been weakened considerably, still a great 1-5 in the line-up, but 6-9 is not gonna scare anybody.

    Detroit will bash average pitching, they’ll be a handful in a short 5 or 7 game series. Papa Grande finally slipped on that banana peel, a few months too late but you could see his streak coming to an end, finally it did, he might be someone to watch, he looked terrible yesterday.

    The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

    This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

    The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.
