So, I have to ask the question. Why are they waiting until 2007? Why not NOW?!?!?!?!

Rob, how do you feel about the names on the Jerseys? I know that most Yankees fans take a certain amount of pride in the fact that the Yankees don't have their names on their jerseys...was wondering if Dodgers fans felt the same way.

We hate it! And, especially last year. I like to pride myself in being a pretty knowledgable Dodger fan. With all of the injuries we had last year, going to a game, I usually had very little clue who was coming up in the latter part of the year.

Willy Aybar... Oscar Robles... Dioner Navarro... Norihiro Nakamura.... Olmedo Saenz.

I found myself asking often: "Who the hell are these guys?!?!?!?!"

Really interesting take, Rob. And one that makes sense to me. The Sox don't have their names on their home jersesy, which has always annoyed me for similar reasons. Many a beer has been spilled when I saw a player on the field, asked "who the hell is that?" and had to go digging for my program to find out.

Love the Butch Cassidy reference. :-)

Another reason why it is necessary for players to have their names on their jerseys is because of the fact that they come and go from team to team nowadays. That's the one thing I dislike about the modern free agency rule. It's become very rare for a guy to spend his entire career with one team.
