Nick Gordon News?

Sometimes people catch viruses. Just sayin'.

 

Also, it's super common not to put players on the field in early ST when there are like 385 players on the roster. There is no rush to get AAA players in practice games.

 

The likely reason this isn't being talking about in the papers is because it's a non-story.

If this has nothing to do with diet and lifestyle then it is a medical issue.  The trouble is, it is awfully hard to be a pro-athlete with a medical issue.  It is what derailed Rocco's career.  Is it horrible to say this?

I don't think it is.

 

 

If that was the comment, a concern that a medical condition MIGHT, repeat MIGHT derail Gordon's career, fine.

 

The commenter, and all the rest of us, have no idea at all about the cause of his medical condition. It's just plain wrong to speculate that Gordon is irresponsible about his "lifestyle" and diet. It brings us full circle to those who concluded he lacked dedication because he's a wannabe rap star. 

 

While it's not beyond the realm of possibility that he can control his own fate better, it's uncharitable to conclude that.

 

Let's let the beat writers tell us what's going on. They're all over it as usual.  ;)

Right here you are doing your own speculation.  I don't find it offensive, but it is worth pointing out if you are going to play that card.  When I brought up his "lifestyle" I was not referring to his "rap career".  I had completely forgotten about it until someone posted the video.  I could care less if you speculate on my motivation behind that post to you, but if you think it is imbedded in rap music you are wrong.

 

Also, I see nothing wrong with anyone wondering WHY this has happened twice after months of being away from the game.  You say we don't know how or why it's come to this so how are you going to stop people from wondering?  It absolutely could be he isn't eating right, staying hydrated or whatever.  You don't know that isn't true and I never passed that off as fact.  I do think it is something the Twins ought to monitor, though....since this is the second time.  Maybe he is drinking too much coffee and soda and not enough water?  Maybe he eats poorly.  Who knows?  Least of which ME and YOU.  He sure is very skinny (a fact) so that is a concern of mine.  In most cases, there is a reason for this kind of thing and it is quite possible he could avoid these issues in the future.

 

Not sure how that is such a horrible thing to say.  it is almost like a "how dare you" response and that is not really necessary.

Was just reading a post game interview with Gordon about his stomach issues. Sounds like it's been an issue for some time. Commented his weight dropped in 2018 from around 185 to 160. Apparently he's making changes to his diet and found some meds to help.
