There are a lot of things for Dodger fans to worry about. When is Russell Martin going to find his power stroke? How will Manny perform when he returns? Can the pitching go deeper into games?
And then there are some of our readers who have other worries:
I have a uniform related question. I have a very misguided friend who is, unfortunately, a fan of a certain team from the Bay Area. He likes to point out that the red number on the Dodgers uniform is, well, retarded. I of course point out that the Giants' uniforms are cream colored, followed up with a vulgar comment about the citizens of San Francisco. Can you help me dispel the mystery behind the red number? Is it in any way significant to the history of the team? I'd love to tell him that it was Jackie Robinson's favorite color or something like that instead of being superfluous. Thanks guys.
And then we got this gem:
My friend from Utah who is a Yankee fan always bugs me about the white dot on top of the Dodgers' hats. Can you give me some help? My typical response of "cool kids have a white dot on their hats" won't hold up much longer.
In both cases, our advice-seekers are looking to defend the honor of the Dodgers because an opposing fan has chosen to criticize an arbitrary aspect of their uniforms.
