Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"If the measure of a man's talent is how pumped-up people get when you bring up his name, then Braves shortstop Andrelton Simmons might not merely be bound for greatness. He might be bound for Cooperstown. 'I get excited just talking about the kid,' said one longtime scout. 'He's incredible,' said his first baseman, Freddie Freeman. 'The balls he gets to. He's so quick. [When he throws to first], it's like the ball doesn't even go in his glove.' 'Exceptional athlete,' said his hitting coach, Greg Walker. 'His hand-eye is off the charts.' 'Great range. Great arm. Quick hands,' said Simmons' double-play partner, Dan Uggla. 'It's fun to watch him do his thing out there. The sky's the limit.'" - ESPN Senior Writer Jayson Stark (ESPN.com, 03/28/2013, What can't Andrelton Simmons do? , Source )
