The video made its way to Eric Thames himself, who sent Carson some Brewers' swag and a note.

"Carson, You and I are both a little bummed about the roster moves this offseason," wrote Thames. "But it is OK!! Baseball is right around the corner and your Brewers ballclub will be on the field giving it their all!"

Per the Washington Post, Thames has made a one-year deal with the Washington Nationals.

Carson said that he is no longer a Brewers fan, but instead he's a Nationals fan.
