Let me start off by saying that AJ Ellis had an amazing year in 2012, for AJ Ellis. He was more than serviceable and cemented the job for the 2013 season along with making himself a fan favorite. Damn that fan favorite label, because it makes people overlook players that are actually below average (*cough* Try to tell a girl that Andre Ethier sucks *cough*). AJ Ellis had a horrible second half last year. He is not that good defensively either (same as Federowicz and Butera
). AJ Ellis would make an awesome backup catcher, unfortunately he's our starter and now he's injured.
So our depth chart has a backup catcher and two guys that are fringe major leaguers.
Being a "Fan Favorite" get's you a major pass, when they announced the AJ Ellis bobblehead I made a bet with a friend saying his BA will not be above the Mendoza line when they hand it out. So far, so good .167.
This season is a win/win though. The pressure is high, but the roster is horribly constructed. So if the Dodgers win the World Series, awesome times a million. However, if they don't, well, hopefully Ned finally gets the boot. Horrible GM, but has about 1000 lives.
