The S family is waaaay more excited about the Broxton bobble than the Ethier one. They kind of dropped the ball on Dre's likeness.

It needs a scoreboard showing it's the bottom of the ninth or something.

Mr. Customer said...

Agreed on AE, perhaps in portrait instead of profile it's closer to the original. Can't tell from that angle.

Mr. Customer said...

Good thing Russ Ortiz ain't coming back. Word is that the finest bobblehead engineering minds couldn't make his bobble with enough articulation or velocity to simulate him watching balls leave the yard.

Josh S. said...

Speaking of bobbleheads, anyone have a spare grand they can lend me?

Dusty Baker said...

supermexxicn13 has quite the collection.

Josh S. said...

All he's missing is an a. Maybe he can trade the extra x for it.

RE $1000 for Bobbleheads: Brian Jordan? Fred McGriff?
Gadzooks i barely remember them being on the team.

When I look back at some of our rosters on Baseball Reference, I am regularly shocked when I am reminded of (or learn for the first time of) the guys that have played for the Dodgers over the year, the Tim Bogars, the Scott Radinskys, the Otis fucking Nixons

Dusty Baker said...

I do the sme thing, FB. And the thing is, sometimes I'm looking at the squad from just 3 years ago.

Looks like bobble Brox lost quite few pounds around the mid-section, no?

Dusty Baker said...

Per D Hernandez:

"There's a jersey in the Dodgers' clubhouse for "Paul." Looks like Xavier Paul has been called up and that Manny will be placed on the DL."

Great, that offense was clicking too much. Need to bring it back to earth.

Dusty Baker said...

15-Day DL (calf)

rats
who will start in his place? Reedy J? I hope X gets a start or three over the next 2 weeks

Fred's Brim said...

and I hope he doesn't get another staph infection, tetanus, rabies, scurvy or any other year-cancelling debilitation this time up

Dusty Baker said...

Guessing X and Reed will likely platoon.

Josh S. said...

So they had 5 outfielders, one goes down, and they call up another outfielder to sit on the bench?

The roster spot should have gone to some pitching help (LINK!), at least for now.

Dusty Baker said...

Totally, Josh.
