Then, Jeff Passan confirmed the report:

A major criticism of the Andrew Friedman administration is how they don’t take things like chemistry and intangibles into account, so it is interesting to see them sign someone who offers both of those things. Unlike that Michael Young trade of a couple years ago, Utley still belongs on a major league field. Many fans will point to his locker-room presence, but he offers more than that.

First and foremost, I love everything Los Angeles. I was born and raised as such. There is video of me, hardly a year old, saying my version of "goooo Dodgers" as my parents cheered alongside me. I could not possibly be more proud to hold this position as we at DodgersNation look forward to enhancing the Dodgers fan experience in any way we possibly can.
