Jose Bautista receives adorable letter from aspiring GM
Everyone thinks they can run a baseball team -- from fantasy baseball managers to armchair GMs. Even young kids are imagining themselves at the helm of their favorite MLB franchise, as evidenced by this adorable letter a young fan sent to Blue Jays outfielder Jose Bautista.
Here's a transcription:
You are a good player if you could stay healthy. Maybe you just need another city to play in. You should try the Rangers. They need another big bat and you could be that man.
David Murphy got his chance to play every day and he struggled, and I think his contract ran out.
Maybe 4 years and $80 million. At least think about it.
I was saying get Jose while the season was still going. The Rangers still have some areas to work on.
Thanks for your time.
First of all -- aww!
Secondly, Bautista was so charmed by the fan's note, he Instagrammed it: "Sweet letter from a young fan from #Texas must be a future General Manager in the making."
