Carlos Ruiz always made the fans happy. So it's no surprise that even after his departure for the potentially playoff-bound Los Angeles Dodgers, he took the time to put up a billboard on I-95 thanking the fans of Philadelphia.
The image of the billboard was posted to Twitter by Phillies beat writer Matt Gelb. It reads:
I loved playing for you. You will always be in my heart. Thank you, Philly! -Chooch
Chooch is simply lovable.
He hasn't exactly torn it up for the Dodgers in limited action since the trade. He's notched a pair of hits in 16 plate appearances over 6 games. The Dodgers currently have a 4 game lead over the Giants in the West so we're hoping for one last run of Senor Octubre.
