D-backs fans aren’t handling A.J. Pollock to the Dodgers very well
So in case you didn’t yet know, we have some bad news for you Diamondbacks fans.
How should we let you know? Gently?
There’s not really a good way to go about it, so here it is: former D-back A.J. Pollock is leaving in free agency. You probably knew that. But, um, yeah … he’s signing with the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Don’t kill the messenger. We know Pollock choosing to join the hated NL West rivals hurts a lot more than most departures of key players. How much money did he sign for?
Um … ugh. OK. He’s reportedly going to make somewhere between $50 and $60 million, according to the reports. Yes, yes, I know that’s not as much money as we thought he’d get. Yeah, I know that Arizona should have tried to retain him if we’re talking that ballpark figure. I hear you.
Would you feel better if we showed you some reactionary memes following the news that you can relate to? Let’s do that.
Also, you really should calm down — OK, OK, it’s fine, get the anger out.
