Matt Guerrier Sports Authority Appearance

After camping out last Friday night to meet Adrian Gonzalez, going to another Dodger event seemed out of the question. But Dodger reliever Matt Guerrier was scheduled to make an appearance Saturday morning from 11-Noon at the Sports Authority in Burbank which was on my home.

As many of you know, I'm not the biggest Matt Guerrier fan. Let's face it, Guerrier hasn't exactly panned out since Ned Colletti signed him to a three-year deal back in 2010. I've talked a lot of crap about him all season long so I felt weird going to get his auto.

When Franz and I arrived at Sports Authority we were dead tired, but we knew it would be an easy auto. I honestly thought that there would be no one there, but there were actually 15 to 20 people in line. The Sports Authority employees kept everything very organized and Matt was signing everything, I thanked him for coming out and he signed a couple of cards for me and took a picture with me as well.

The very next day the Dodgers designated Guerrier for assignment and eventually traded him to the Cubs for Carlos Marmol. Guerrier probably knew he was gonna get designated, but he made it to the event anyway and kept a smile on his face the whole time. Thanks to Sports Authority and Matt Guerrier for a great appearance.
