Have vigorously defended Dodgers front office, and they've delivered this season, but this AJ Ellis trad is just … awful & wrongheaded.

Couldn't ask for a better teammate or person in general than @AJEllis17. I'm genuinely happy to have had the opportunity to play with him.

It's rare that a player can wholly embody a club's energy and ideals. Dodgers inside and outside the clubhouse walls will miss @AJEllis17

Thank you @AJEllis17 ! One of the best teammates I've ever had & one of the best baseball minds I've gotten to be around!
