Its been a long, cold year ever since America's sweethearts parted ways, deciding that it was easier to go without each other then be with each other. There was not one baseball fan in all the world with a dry eye when it was announced last off season that Rod Barajas and J.P. Ricciardi didn't feel their relationship was going in the right direction. Feeling that Barajas did not want to be in the relationship, Ricciardi stated in frustration "I don't want anyone who doesn't want to be here". Barajas allowed his friends to talk him into thinking that he could do better. Once scorned, Barajas fled into the arms of a new suitor in Philadelphia, and Ricciardi returned to his ex, Greg Zaun.
As the year went on however, the two knew they couldn't be apart. The suitor in Philadelphia dumped Barajas for someone younger, and Ricciardi just didn't have the same feelings for Zaun as he did Barajas. The two decided to talk things over, and put their differences behind them. As Ricciardi said, "I talked to Rod last night and we had a nice conversation... That was last year. It's over with...We're concentrating on this year....we're happy...nothing to be gained by going backwards. We're going forward and we're just really happy."
We are really happy for you two. I knew you'd be back together, it was just a matter of time.
When will baseball start?
