The clock still hasn’t struck midnight in Justin Turner’s fairy tale.
The story of the twice-discarded utility man who attained unexpected stardom with his hometown team couldn’t end now, not like this, so the 36-year-old third baseman and defending World Series champions agreed to extend a relationship that symbolized the revival of one of baseball’s signature franchises.
For at least two more seasons, the pumpkin will remain a carriage, the mice will remain horses and the rags will remain a jeweled gown.
Turner will remain a Dodger.
The deal made too much sense for both sides to not happen.
