AJ Gets a Contract From the Dodgers

It’s no secret that my favorite Major League player – at least until Max Stassi gets promoted again – is A.J. Ellis of the Los Angeles Dodgers. So much so that I almost always carry him on my fantasy team (I only have one team) even though he isn’t exactly a points bonanza. Every time he does manage to do something I celebrate it and rationalize that I made the right move to start him over Buster Posey on that day. Seriously, I do that.

On a more realistic note, Ellis is a great catcher even if he isn’t an offensive juggernaut. when he is going good, he gets on base, and he draws walks like a man pushing the button at a crosswalk every ten seconds. A.J. Ellis simply walks into Mordor.

AJ Ellis TweetSo I was very glad to see him get a new contract from the Dodgers. I certainly would love to see him have a great season, one where he doesn’t celebrate a no-hitter by jumping up and and landing on a carelessly discarded catchers mask screwing up his ankle. Naturally baseball is a business, and Ellis is going to have to step up the offense in order to stay in the lineup and move into the future with the Dodgers.

But in case things don’t work out for AJ Ellis in the long term, I would point out to the Dodgers that Max Stassi is still out there! Seeing Max in a Dodger uniform would be great to me!
