He is very well spoken I can't believe people were bashing him after that mock interview during the draft saying things like he has a few DUIs in his future.
I was impressed as well. After watching Buxton fumble a few words out fielding the most obvious questions in the world on national television, I like knowing Travieso has a head on his shoulders. And the bulldog mentality gets tagged on a lot of stocky, hard throwing pitchers, but he definitely seems to have that competitive streak in him. I loved the quote, "That's my plate!"
