After Game 3 of the CWS finals, Gates said he thought his playing days were behind him. I heard him say as much, too. His mother, Tammy, even said, “This is his last game.” As it turns out, his baseball career isn’t over:
Yeah. Hope he succeeds. If they trade machado to Yankees I hope Trevor Stephan is part of the deal. Stephan has already moved up to AA after one year. Moving up quickly.
Love to see young guys who aren’t drafted make it. Sure hope Gates is one of them. He seems like a fine young man.
