Devo worked with a young Bayless
 
It's a slow time for news, but nevertheless, this is kind of interesting.

Quote:

Whyte taught hoops to others besides his daughter, like current Toronto Raptors guard Jerryd Bayless.

“He’s one of my kids, he’d call me Uncle Devo or Uncle D. His father is a forensic scientist, his mom a professor.”

He also had this to say:

Quote:

Whyte thinks about his days with the Jays and while he doesn’t say so, it sounds like he’d like to return to Toronto as Pat Hentgen and Alomar have. He’s in his first year with the White Sox after being a minor league instructor with the Washington Nationals.

“Doesn’t matter what athlete, what sport I’m talking, they all love the city,” Whyte said. “They love the city, the diversity. Who cares about the taxes?”

Being from Jamaica it probably was a disadvantage over playing in the US. For US players it makes no difference, but for those outside of the US it does.
