Yesterday, Justin Turner shared his “Thank you LA” article on social networks and also we were done in splits as the fact of the circumstance lastly struck us: Turner will certainly no more representative the Dodger Blue.
But that’s the nature of business. After 9 years with the Dodgers, J.T. will formally go out eastern to sign up with a couple of previous colleagues out in Boston.
Many of us believed, like Kershaw, he would ultimately retire in the Dodger Blue yet that had not been the situation. It came as a shock when the Dodgers made a decision not to provide J.T. a club alternative placing him on the free-agency market this offseason.
