It may have shocked some when Justin Turner signed with the Boston Red Sox yesterday. But, his departure became evident as the Dodgers signed DH specialist J.D. Martinez on Saturday.
Still, after nine seasons with the Dodgers and countless memories, JT is no longer a Dodger; that is something we can’t phantom right now.
And many fans feel the say way. We asked Dodger fans how they feel about JT leaving for Boston, and many fans feel the same way.
It's really a end of an era. Belli gone, JT gone, Kershaw's future next year is uncertain.

Sad to see JT go. Does a lot for the LA community. He'll always be a Dodger though and I'm sure he'll be back with the team in some capacity when he retires.

Devastated. Justin is one of my favorite players. JT and Kourtnie have strong roots in LA and have given so much to LA. It will be sad to not see him in Dodger blue.

Hate to see JT leave. He made many positive contributions both on and off the field. Wishing JT the best!

Turner is a southern California kid who played for his favorite team going up; who else can say that?
The Dodgers took a chance on the red-head kid, who was 29 years old at the time, and turned him into one of the most clutch Dodgers of all time, a two-time All-Star, an NLCS MVP, and a World Series Champion.
JT went from barely seeing the field to becoming a catalyst in one of the most dominant teams in the past decade.
We asked fans to describe the Cal State Fullerton alum in three words as a Dodger, and here were some of their responses.

10 is a Dodger legend, and he will be missed forever. Hopefully, he can return in some way, shape, or form.
