The story of Alex Anthopoulos: From tragedy to prodigy to Braves GM

“Pursue things that you have a passion for,” he said. “Then have humility. That’s the two things I think, in any walk of life, will take you incredibly far. Having a passion for what you’re going to go after, having that humility to get better, to learn, to want to work with people and have people want to work with you. Those are the two most important things.”

I like the theme and the approach; really. It is funny that the braves could come out with a better result than if the cheating, mean-spirited lying brat had not gotten caught slipping other people's money under the table. I just hope the prospects loss is not too severe. I think the Braves should just volunteer to be ineligible for signing Otani, the greatest talent of a generation-isn't that punishment enough?
