There will be two player appearances tomorrow. Jamey Carroll and AJ Ellis. The Dodgers have been posting an announcement on Facebook now about the player appearances. So far Carroll’s announcement has a few comments, but AJ’s already is up to almost 100. And I gotta say, probably 90% of those comments are not of the positive kind. Here’s a few.
AG: They were going to get Octavio Dotel to make an appearance, but they
were afraid he’d just keep dropping the Sharpies off the table =/
DD: Who is he and will he refund the money I’ve wasted on this team? Good grief! Dodger fans deserve better!
NC: A TRUE Dodger fan will stick with the Dodgers through the GOOD and the
BAD! It’s sad when people call themselves fans and then when the team
isn’t doing well they put the team down! Shame shame on you…
DC: Really? A.J. Ellis? Was Juan Castro busy that day? Come on man.!
EP: he still is a rookie and hasen’t been playing everyday until now but give him a break he should improve. don’t be so screwed up.
EL: Jesus look at all the folks ragging on poor AJ. Dude is just a 3rd string catcher lol lay off man!
Although if he did an appearance at a batting cage, id be impressed
FM: Ellis should be making appearances in Albuquerque where he belongs.
CL: If I throw a ball at him, will it fly right by him like the game last night???
LH: OF THE 6 PEOPLE THAT ATTEND THIS EVENT, 2 WILL BE THERE TO BUY A CAR, 2
WONT KNOW WHO THE DODGERS ARE AND 2 WILL BE LITTLE KIDS WHO THINK AJ
ELLIS IS RYAN HOWARD.
RM: Hopefully AJ sells cars better than he can hit baseballs…
CH: Who’s AJ Ellis?
Now Jamey Carroll comments
DC: baller, Jamey Carroll is an awesome utility man. He shows effort
(ahem…Matt Kemp) and is a hard worker. Hard work beats talent, but
talent does not beat hard work.
JR: dodger fans don’t give carroll enough credit for everything he has been doing for us .
CR: I am SOOOO excited!!!! I would do ANYTHING for this man!!! I LOVE HIM!!!!
(Yes, this is posted by a woman)
MN: Maybe the Dodgers can one of those “Easy” buttons and put together some wins or new ownership!
DCa: Jamey Carroll has done more than he was asked to do. If Matt Kemp had
his drive and determination, not to mention some desire, MK would be a
SuperStar. But this is for Jamey ! Thanks for playing like a Dodger
Guess who’s going to have the bigger crowd tomorrow?
There were a few negative comments in Carroll’s comments, but only like one or two were actually directed at Carroll. Not like Ellis where the majority of the comments were negative, and even then it was split between management, individual players, the team, and AJ.
Don’t worry, AJ. There will be two fans there who don’t fall under the three categories that LH listed. Even though Carroll’s signing is much closer to my house, I am going to drive all the way out to Glendora to support Ellis and the Dodgers. Someone’s gotta show up and represent right?
First, thanks Jamey Carroll for stopping by and signing my Opening Day baseball and taking a photo with me. Thanks Pat for getting him over. Secondly, thanks you Jon SooHoo for taking the time to send me a copy of the photo you took of us. No kidding, less than 5 minutes after I sent the email, I got a reply.
Here’s Jamey Carroll and me on Jon SooHoo’s.
