Good luck Dee Gordon! I will miss you with the Dodgers. I will miss seeing you running the bases, your defense and hitting. I will miss your smiling face, seeing you in San Diego.
I will never forget the time I saw you in the lobby of the hotel and told you “Dee! I am so happy for you today! You did great!” You hugged me and said “Thank you ma’man!” Your mom raised you well. I will miss you kid! The last time I spoke with you I said “I can’t call you skinny Dee any more” You showed me your arm muscles then. Thank you for the memories. I wish you the best with the Marlins.
Gordon is coming off an All-Star year in which he stole 64 bases and hit 12 triples
In the trade: Dee Gordon and Dan Haren to the Marlins for Andrew Heaney, Kike Hernandez, Chris Hatcher and Austin Barnes. Didn’t Haren say that he would retire if he was not a Dodger?
