Because how can you not love a baseball player named "Bubba"?
Fox Sports South has an article about Braves shortstop Andrelton Simmons, that includes some comments from Paul Janish. Probably interviewed during Braves Caravan.
"I think the biggest thing as a shortstop is to have pitchers want you back there. That was always my goal on any team that I played with," teammate and defensive-minded shortstop Paul Janish said. "As far as Andrelton goes, man, for being such a young guy, he's not overwhelmed at all in these situations, which is huge especially in the games that we play in. Being in the race down the stretch, playing a lot of close games, having a lot of ground ball pitchers on this team, he's gonna play a huge role."
..."Him and Paul (Janish) are so good there defensively that it takes a little bit of worry out of your mind," reliever Jonny Venters said. "I try to make my pitches and get ground balls and I know that those two guys are going to make the plays, and they're going to make the plays that probably a lot of guys won't make."
