I've been sitting on this for a while, clinging to the faint hope that something would get worked out and Trevor would be back. Obviously, that is not going to happen. I made this back when I posted my over-wrought "Goodbye Trevor" FanPost. Of course, this had to happen. Nothing lasts forever. I can't argue with anyone that cites his declining skills and stats. But I will miss the man. He was the last link to Tony, the last link to 1998. It would have been nice to say goodbye. That's what gets me the most, I would like to have said goodbye. I would like to have known that the last time I heard Hell's Bells would be the last time I heard Hell's Bells. But I'm not going to take shots at anyone this time. Not Alderson, not the Trevor-haters. That's all done. This is about paying tribute to a singular athlete and a special human being. I'm glad someone wanted him and I'm glad Trevor cleaned up in his last major league contract. I hope GLB will be well respresented at Petco on Friday, July 31st when the Brewers come into town.
The pictures are mainly from various sources on the internet, with a few of my own sprinkled in. There are also a couple from another Gaslamp Baller whose name I don't remember (sorry!). Music by R.E.M.
