How Do We Explain Justin Turner?

Of all the ways the Mets could Met, this one has been the most beneficial to all of us: They non-tendered Justin Turner last winter, slammed his “hustle,” then watched him blossom into a vital part of a Dodgers team with championship aspirations and single-handedly outperform most of the 2014 New York offense.

Justin Turner Was On A Mission Last Night

Dodgers utility man Justin Turner put on a heck of show last night, seemingly doing everything he could to beat his old teammates. Turner turned two key double plays against the Mets, and was no slouch at the plate singling, doubling, drawing a walk and scoring a run. Turner also stole a base and nearly scored another run if not for a botched suicide squeeze by Dan Haren who failed...

Report: Dodgers Sign Justin Turner. Finally.

(via) I feel like we’ve been talking about Justin Turner for so long — months, if we’re including the old MSTI — that the fact that news just came out that they have in fact signed him seems more anti-climactic than anything.
