Earlier this week, Dodgers Alex Wood agreed to a deal with the San Francisco Giants. Wood today says goodbye to the Dodgers:
@dodgersfans I’ve been so blessed to have spent 5 seasons in LA. Getting to come back last year and get a ring for the city of LA was the highlight of my career and I will forever be indebted to the city of Los Angeles and all of Dodger Nation.
Winning a championship isn’t easy. It takes every person involved from the top down doing their jobs to the best of their ability every day. I can’t thank my teammates, staff and our front office enough for all the blood, sweat and tears we all invested on the daily in order to make a childhood dream of mine come true. Going out with a W is the only way I ever saw my time in LA coming to an end. We did it and we’re all bonded for life because of it.
I’ve been so fortunate to play for 3 storied franchises and now I get add a fourth one to the list in the@sfgiants. I’m ecstatic to get started and to show everyone in the Bay what I’m all about. Getting to play for another incredible fan base is something I don’t take for granted and I’m looking forward to hopefully seeing everyone at the park this year!
