After the shell shock of a first round exodus, we all cope and deal with it differently. Moreover, it takes some of us more time than others to pull out of the bad place and resume a normal life.
On the topic of time, over the weekend, more and more players and personnel from the team began to take to social media to wrap their heads around the season, and give thanks to the people that make it possible — the fans.
Just wanted to say thank you to all my teammates & the entire Dodger Nation for welcoming me like family this season! It didn’t end how we wanted but the energy and passion you all brought to the yard everyday was like nothing I’ve ever experienced. Appreciate you all, cheers! pic.twitter.com/LJPWdpV2QN

While some players are definitely still not ready to come out of hibernation, a few players’ wives have taken to the ‘gram to express their gratitude.
However, where you see more and more content is in the great folks that make the Dodgers fan experience the best in the game.
“If winning is God’s reward, then losing is how he teaches us.”
2019 didn’t end the way we wanted but what a season it was. I know they’ll come back stronger. Special s/o to the guys for always putting up with me. So, for one last time,?? from the dugout. 2020, let’s get it. pic.twitter.com/f6SWpTybZ5

What a season. I don’t have many words right now. I will say this, this is the best clubhouse I’ve ever had the privilege of covering. This team was special. I’m grateful for the chance to be with them since the beginning. I won’t take 2019 for granted. Thank you, #Dodgers.

Thank you @Dodgers fans for an exciting season, filled with the roar of the crowd and packed houses almost every night. You truly are great fans, and I know we’ll be back next season for another wild ride. There’s disappointment, even sadness tonight, and yes, we’re bleeding blue

More power to these fine people because on a personal note, Twittering has definitely felt off for me. At a time when we’re all still ready to be talking Dodger baseball and prepping for the suspense of the next game, we’re caught now hitting refresh and hoping for any sliver of news, or just plainly waiting til next year.
Some of you will love this. Some of you will hate it.
