    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?

    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?"

    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.

    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?
