Bryan Adams So Far So Good Greatest Hits
If you’re going to make it to the majors, your debut probably turns into a split as they await their next assignment. Then you’re in Colorado for The Nativeness and back to full-time status, where you give George Springer some advice for being a rookie and spend a day making up like your name is Chuck Norris.
