As I mentioned offhandedly in the post I did about Logan White earlier today, one of my favorite ways to judge an acquisition right off the bat is to see what the fans of the team he left are saying. In the case of Logan White, Dodgers fans are nearly unanimous: He's extremely good at what he does, and they're bummed out that he's leaving. I took one for the team and waded through the dark world of Dodgertwitter to compile the following roundup.
Logan White is now working for the Padres aka no more scouting Kershaws,Puigs,Or Matt Kemps for us.— Danny Garcia (@DannySquizard) October 27, 2014

Congrats to Logan White! Gave me a chance to play in 2006 (I know I was a terrible pick don't need you to remind me) Padres got a great guy!— Preston Mattingly (@Pmattingly30) October 27, 2014
Good-bye, Logan White, guy who single-handedly destroyed the Dodger First-Round Draft Pick Curse (h/t @dodgerblues). Good luck to you sir.— PuntoForPresident (@PresidentPunto) October 27, 2014
Huge loss by LA in losing Logan White. The man knew how to find talent. He will be sorely missed.— Trolley Blue (@TrolleyBlue) October 27, 2014
I always expected we would lose Logan White. But thought he would leave as a GM— Dodgers Anonymous (@EephusBlue) October 27, 2014
Sad to hear about Logan White leaving. The front office was so static for a while there. This offseason has already changed the team a lot.— J's Dodger Tweets (@JsDodgerTweets) October 27, 2014

Bummed to hear Logan White is leaving the #Dodgers. He has been a huge part of building the farm system up. Padres just got much better— Joe Barkett (@JoeBarkett) October 27, 2014
Really sad to see Logan White leave the organization.— Jared Massey (@JaredJMassey) October 27, 2014
There are so, so many more tweets like these from other Dodgers fans lamenting their loss. I could keep embedding them all day long, because I really love reveling in it when the Dodgers lose anything, but I think the point has been made.
