I'm a Twitter newbie for sure, but it sounded to me that Gonslaves has been promoted. Or maybe not. maybe the hashtags confused me. Anyways , check out his Twitter and let me know.

He has been promoted to Elizabethton. I hate to be the guy who gets on everybody about spelling... but if I were a player I'd want my name spelled right. Maybe it was a typo, but the kid's name is Stephen Gonsalves. I've seen people confuse him with another prospect named Gonclaves, or just call him the wrong name (Steven, Gonslaves, Stevie, Stev-O, ok I made those last two up)

That being said, we are all rightfully excited about Stephen Gonsalves' bright future.

Actually his name is Stephan Gonsalves, but who's keeping track, right? And yes, very excited about his future.

Funny how things like that work out- hopefully one day even casual twins fans know how to spell it

And I even think you were referring to Jhonathan Goncalves (not Gonclaves)... no good deed ever goes unpunished ;~)!

Looks like wheel of fortune wouldn't be my best game show after all...
