The Los Angeles Dodgers are releasing their 2016 Yearbook, and to mark the occasion it features a special 27-page section where the team celebrates Clayton Kershaw’s 10 years with the franchise. Kershaw was drafted by the team in 2006, and he’s since gone on to become the most dominant pitcher in baseball.

But even the most dominant pitcher, and one of the game’s greatest organizations, are not immune to the snarky nature of a teammate. A.J. Ellis responded to the Dodgers’ tweet with his own recanting of a Dodgers Yearbook.

The Los Angeles Dodgers’ official Twitter account (@Dodgers) sent out the notice earlier today:

No harm, no foul. It was a simple musing that told you that fans were able to celebrate 10 years of Kershaw. And, to be frank, it’s a pretty cool thing that they’re doing to honor one of the organization’s greatest players. But that doesn’t mean Ellis (@AJEllis17) had to like it.

A.J. Ellis was drafted by the Dodgers in 2003, and he’s now entering his 14th season as a member of the ball club. He posted a picture of his very own “Los Angeles Dodger Pamphlet” that honored his time with the team.

First off, you’ll note that Ellis is much better shape back then than he is now. He might have been a twig, but he was definitely more mobile than today’s Ellis happens to be. It’s fun to see players have fun with something, even at their star player’s expense.

You can purchase the 2016 Los Angeles Dodgers Yearbook online (right here) for $15. It features the 27-page spread on Kershaw, a 2015 Year In Review, info about Dodger Stadium, roster breakdown, and “a trip through memory lane” with legendary broadcaster Vin Scully. It’s a must-have for any fan.
