Freddie Freeman’s emotional reunion with his previous lovers in Atlanta seems to have rubbed at least a person Los Angeles Dodger the improper way.
Freeman still left the Braves immediately after 12 seasons to be part of the Dodgers, and the weekend series marked his to start with video games in Atlanta since departing. Freeman was plainly emotional and did not hide how blended his emotions were to be actively playing towards the Braves in Atlanta.
Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw had a entrance row seat to all of this. The previous All-Star experienced what appeared to be a reminder for Freeman soon after the whirlwind weekend by noting that he did not want the Dodgers to be “second fiddle.”
“It was quite cool (to see Freeman’s reception Friday night),” Kershaw told Gabriel Burns of the Atlanta Journal-Structure. “He’s obviously been a major contributor for our crew. And I hope we’re not second fiddle. It is a rather exclusive group over listed here, much too. I believe every time he will get comfortable around in this article, he’ll truly take pleasure in it. It was a excellent night for him (Friday).”
Kershaw has been all over prolonged sufficient that he understands to pick out his phrases diligently in general public. This seems to be a mild nudge toward Freeman reminding him that it is time to transfer on from Atlanta once and for all.
Freeman has been all over a even though way too and will know his new teammates will not want to be spurned. The great news for the Dodgers is that the new reality seemed to established in for both equally sides on Saturday.
