Go-Go-ing, Going, Gone….

The baseball season has begun. 

All over North American, spring is showing up on baseball fields and in climate-controlled domes.  Lucky for Minnesotans, The Twins will now host in the former, rather than the latter.  Sweet freedom at last!  (It’s just too bad we can’t support education with tax increases like we can support state sports teams… but that’s a whole ‘nother ball game).

What I’d really like to know, is whatever happened to Go-Go?

The life and energy of the outfield, a fair bit faster than anyone (though Span can keep up, I admit), but why did he get traded?  That-  Is the question. 

& I think I have the answer…

You would have to be living under a rock not to notice the strange dedication the Twins Roster shows to the letter J.  Justin Morneau, Joe Mauer, Joe Nathan, Jason Kubel, Jose Mijares, they welcomed back Jacques Jones with open arms too. 

I soon found myself wondering, if Carlos Gomez was named Jarlos Jomez, would he still be with the Twinks?  Maybe so.  I mean who was he traded for!?  J.J. Hardy!  Two J’s!  Could they be any more obvious?!  It’s a sad day when the J.J.’s push out the Go-Go’s.


  1. I can’t wait until opener next Monday!!! I’m taking at least half of the day off. So we will have gone to the last game at the Dome, and the first “real” game at the new ballpark. Btw, it’s a “ballpark” and not a stadium. I guess St. Paul had some issue with that.
