PHOENIX — The Los Angeles Dodgers arrived to their clubhouse early Thursday morning, looked around, talked about the news heard ‘round the baseball world, and tried to act cool.
It proved to be impossible. The more they talked, the more they were questioned.
The Dodgers got their man, and they weren’t shy about shouting it to anyone who’d listen.
They landed All-Star first baseman and former MVP Freddie Freeman, signing him to a six-year, $162 million contract, and vowed to hug him with all of their might the moment he walks through the door Friday.
“Excited is probably an understatement,” Dodgers All-Star third baseman Justin Turner said. “Obviously, there’s been a lot of buildup. A lot of talk. A lot of anticipation as to what was going to happen.
“To finally see it go down and become official, I slept pretty good.”
