He's The Real Deal In Every Respect

"Hey Queen! How you doing?"

Sohna turns around and knew right away that voice.

Hall Of Famer Don Sutton was standing right behind us and proceeded to give The African Queen a big hug. Since moving back to Atlanta before the start of the 2009 season to broadcast Atlanta Braves games again, we've tended to catch up with Don at some point during Atlanta's trips back to Nationals Park. Last night, all three of us chatted after the game.

Speaking about Jayson Heyward, Don Sutton was quite effusive over The Braves's rookie sensation:

"You are going to hear a lot about Jayson Heyward for a long, long time. He's not only a very talented young player, but he is just an all-around decent person. His personality reminds me of Justin Maxwell here in Washington. Great makeup, genuine in every way. And you two know how much people respect Justin Maxwell here in Washington. I really can't say enough good things about Jayson Heyward. He's the real deal in every respect."
