  1. Even though he only had a few seasons with the Dodgers, his time with them should be celebrated. He was a solid player and a key contributor. Enjoy your retirement and know that this life-long Dodger fan will have nothing but fond memories of your time here.

  2. He was a solid contributor to this Dodger team. He hit about .315 in blue and they let him retire? Go figure………good luck David!
