The Dodgers’ charter plane had to make an emergency landing last night

The Dodgers were leaving San Diego and heading to Texas, but they had to make an unexpected stop back in Los Angeles last night after their charter plane was diverted to LAX due to a mechanical issue.

There was no official word on what happened, but on his Instagram page infielder/amateur airline mechanic Justin Turner said it was a stabilizer problem. Which is kind of scary because stabilizers are somewhat more important to airplanes than, say, the little fan above your seat or the toilet at the front of the plane outside of which you’re not allowed to line up.

Adrian Gonzalez:

Happy because of the win, not happy because of the delay.

The Dodgers got a new plane and then made it on to Texas.
