2013 Topps Andrelton Simmons 581 - Braves Card of the Day ⚾

If you aren’t a Braves fan, I think you might be amazed at just how many Braves fans still think of Simba as their favorite baseball player. If we could have any single player back on the Braves that was let go during the rebuild, it’s him. I’m not going to be critical of Sean Newcomb, but he is who he is, flaws and all. Simba, however, is a generational talent. Getting to watch him play regularly gave me the same thrill I got from watching Greg Maddux pitch. You knew you were watching one of the best ever.

Incidentally, he was ROBBED of the 2015 NL Gold Glove.
