Dodger Thoughts

Jon Weisman's outlet for dealing psychologically with the Los Angeles Dodgers, baseball and life


It all began after Juan Uribe singled for the second time in Saturday’s game, driving in two runs in the Dodgers’ seven-run fifth inning and continuing his season-opening hot (it’s all relative) streak.

There was a setback in the sixth inning, which ended when Uribe struck out with two on and two out and the Dodgers clinging to an 8-7 lead.

Soon, I could sense I was on to something.

And then the lightbulb went off.

I wasn’t sure anything would happen after that, but then came these messages from Twitter user @_GrandPaD.

And then another choice option from @EephusBlue.

My heart is all a-flutter. I want one. I want them all. Here’s the pricing formula:

$(10 x current Uribe OBP)². Today’s suggested price is $16.00. Last year, a Uribear would have cost $6.66.

    I vote for #2, but I will defer to my wife for her opinion once she gets up. Somehow, I don’t think this is something I wake her up for.

    I like 2 for the uniform but 3 for the face

      Did they open the suitcase to see if it was full of deer meat?

  4. Had a bit more time this AM. Variation of #2 with a more “bear” look.

  5. OY!

    Okay, now how about Carl Crawford? A whippet or greyhound? Or should those be reserved for Dee Gordon?

    I know Clayton is our Ace but for some reason our team does like to support him with offense

    Rosenthal is advocating the Dodgers trade the Angels some players for the privilege of getting Mike Sciosia to manage the Dodgers. I have no opinion on this.

    • Preposterous. It will never happen, but in any case, Dodgers do not need to give up talent for another manager.

        I’d be happy to see Scioscia, but I would give up nothing more than Mattingly for him.
