Dee Gordon's first stop after being traded? Glove shopping at a local sporting goods store

As baseball fans, we tend to hold baseball players in very high regard. They're gods on the diamond, existing in circles unknown to us normal, perpetually awkward souls. But sometimes we're reminded that they are indeed regular human beings -- just like you and me.

Dee Gordon's story about having to buy a new glove after getting traded to the Mariners is one of those occasions. You can listen to it in the main clip above. Just imagine: You're in a local sporting goods store shopping for some sweet new baseball pants for your slow-pitch softball league and Dee Gordon is in the glove section looking for an outfielder's mitt. Also, Dee, you should definitely use the red one.
