"We Gotta Get Outta This Place"; or, "California Dreaming"

Anyone who still couldn’t believe the deal was done should have been prowling Twitter a little while ago. Nick Punto, the utility infielder going to the Dodgers with Adrian Gonzalez and Josh Beckett, squeezed this shot off his cell phone camera—aboard their flight West—and posted it post-haste:

If you’re David Letterman, you’d be awful tempted to come up with a Top Ten list of songs they might be singing as they hit the skies for the City of Angels:

“We’re goin’ out there a-havin’ fun in the warm California sun . . .”

10) “Restless Farewell.”

9) “Homeward Bound.” (Perhaps in honour of Gonzalez, a native Southern Californian.)

8) “Fun, Fun, Fun.”

7) “Set Me Free”

6) “Go West, Young Man”

5) “You’re Gonna Miss Me When I’m Gone”

4) “Surf’s Up.”

3) “I’ll Follow the Sun.”

2) “California Dreaming.”

And, the number one song Josh Beckett, Adrian Gonzalez, and Nick Punto might be singing as they fly from Boston to Los Angeles:

1) “We Gotta Get Outta This Place.”

There ya go . . .
