  • Names on jerseys . . .

    Not a change that I like. h Real BLUE fans know our players by their numbers, OR, they're willing to look up the rookies or recent call-ups. I like the idea of no names because the only names that should matter are "Dodgers" on our home unis and "Los Angeles" on our roads. Any thoughts?

    Here's the scoop: http://insidethedodgers.mlblogs.com/...y_popular.html
    "I became a good pitcher when I stopped trying to make them miss the ball and started trying to make them hit it." - Sandy Koufax.

    "My name is Yasiel Puig. I am from Cuba. I am 21 years old. Thank you."

    Hmmm...46 years with names on the back compared to two without.

    I sorta liked the no-names deal, but with all the minor leaguers being called up, it was difficult to keep up with the names and numbers.

      That's good news.
      Using a stolen chant from Boston Celtics fans whenever an L.A. team is playing up there just reeks of inferiority complex.

      If hitting a baseball is the toughest thing to do in sports, then pitching must be the easiest thing to do in sports.

        The Dodgers added names in the mid-1970s. Sandy Koufax and Don Drysdale among others never wore jerseys with names on them.

          Now you're talkin'.

          As I said, if a fan wants to know badly enough who a guy is, they'll either buy a program, ask around, or memorize the roster.

          Plus, how cool is it to be at the ballpark, watch a young kid lace a liner or strike someone out, and then ask, "Who's that guy?"

            I noticed that as soon as I hit "post."

            Anyway, as long as the team colors and logo remain the same, it doesn't matter what's on the back. Isn't that what Tommy said?
