Do you blame him? I didn't even here anyone mention his name in passing this weekend. He was a great 1rst baseman for the Dodgers and I will miss him.

Really gonna miss that solid defense on the field. I hate saying goodbye to a player that has been a part of the Dodger Fam for a while. You gave a lot of years to us. Wish lots of success for you James.

I already noticed a Marlin pull a double down the right field line and A Gon is good but he couldn't quite stop that one. I know Loney's reach and quick reflexes would have got it. Those were really rare when Loney was at 1st. ....just reminiscing...

I feel bad for Loney, and the way the fans treated him towards the end. I know he wasn't getting the job done offensively (and people barely even acknowledged how many runs he saved on defense), but the hostile reaction was way out of line from...I'd say at least 75% of the fanbase, especially seeing how he was such a big part of this organization for so long. It really bugged me that Ethier was basically invisible for 3 months and no one even brought it up, other than to excuse it by saying he was surrounded by scrubs, while Loney was just getting pummelled during and after every game, even the ones that weren't all that bad.

Anyway, hope he can turn it around now. Best of luck to him at Dunkin Donuts.

unfortunately, it's become rare to see dodger fans supporting james. it sucks. he was my favorite in his time with the dodgers and to see him go like he did - it hurts.

i know that he's having an off season, i know that hasn't been producing as much - i understand all of it. but to see so-called "fans" boo him and trash-talk him is uncalled for. i'll never understand why people boo their own players.

it's also unfortunate that this big blockbuster*~ trade has overshadowed his departure from the team. he's been with this organization since 2002 -the start of his career. and all he got was a measly mention on twitter. gee, thanks. (i thought that matt or andre would have said *something* by now...)

i'm glad to see him get two RBIs in his first two games with the red sox. i sincerely hope he plays up to his potential out there and that the red sox fans appreciate him. it is weird seeing him in anything but dodger blue, though.

and it's nice to see the comments on here supporting him and showing *some* sense of sadness over him leaving.
