Guys. This article appeared out of nowhere on my Twitter TL today, and it made me the happiest anything has in a long while.
I don’t want to spoil the entire article (partly because Alexis Brudnicki is wonderful and deserves the clicks), but here are some of the highlights.
Devon Travis is:
- Per Rowdy Tellez, possibly the sole reason Rowdy returned to baseball after his mom died. If you enjoyed watching Rowdy play half as much as I did last August/September, you have Devo to thank.
- Referred to by not one, not two, but FOUR current and former Blue Jays prospects as a ‘big brother’ (that’s every prospect interviewed in the article, FYI).
- Someone who, despite having the WORST luck with getting hurt, manages to lift the spirits of every other player recovering from injuries.
- An absolute gem of a human being (my own conclusion, given the evidence presented here).
I’m going to be smiling about this article for the rest of the week (and probably posting quotes pulled from it for that long, too).
