before, and after, mike devereaux was the mvp of the 1995 nlcs for the braves, he was a dodger.
devereaux went head over heels for the o's during his initial stay there (yes, he was an oriole double dipper, too.)
he returned to baltimore in 1996 and again made it to the league championship series, but was just 0 for 2 in a limited role. after a spending 1997 in texas, he finally made it back to la for the 1998 season.
big thanks to pacific for noticing, too. i'm not sure many people did as devereaux only appeared in 9 games his second time around. he was hitting .308 with an ops of .822 when the dodgers released him in may. that decent finish to his career knocked his average as a dodger up to .191. clearly, the dodgers lost out on the best that devereaux had to offer.
here's to you, mike devereaux - dodger double dipper.
