Quick Thoughts on The Gose/Travis Trade

Woke up this morning and realized I will never hear Montell Jordan at the Skydome again.

And so, the Anthony Gose era has come to an end. He had promise and certainly had his moments, but he never achieved his full potential.

From all accounts, Devon Travis is the “second baseman of the future.” As many have pointed out, Baseball America listed him as Detroit’s top prospect. I looked over his numbers on Baseball-Reference.com last night. His Single-A and Double-A stats are quite nice.

Essentially, the Blue Jays gave up an inconsistent player for a player who has potential. Regardless of how Devon Travis turns out, it’s not like the Jays gave up a lot or too much to get him.
