Signs We Are Near The End Of Civilization: The Los Angeles Dodgers Are In Denial


Look at this. Just when you thought the whole “throwback” thing couldn’t get any worse, the Dodgers once again show they can take any problem and make it worse.  Seriously, look at these things. It’s almost as if Andre Ethier, Clayton Kershaw and Matt Kemp are auditioning for the Village People’s new baseball character. Moreover, why is Kershaw wearing an “LA” cap and a “Brooklyn” jersey. No wonder the McCourts are in the middle of the ugliest divorce in the history of California.

This is just another example of what  a mess this franchise is, and worse yet, it’s because it’s “fans” voted for this. Nearly 50,000 votes were cast in favor of a 1940’s satin uniform as the winning throwback jersey for six mid-week day games in 2011.  The original uniform worn in the 1940s was made of a highly reflective satin fabric to make it more visible under the lights for night games. The Dodgers say the throwback jersey, which is a light blue color with “Brooklyn” across the chest, will have a similar feel.

Read that again. The originals were made of a highly reflective fabric for night games, yet the Dodgers intend to wear them during day games under the blazing Southern California sun. Better yet, the jerseys will be available for purchase by fans at Dodger Stadium on April 21, when the Dodgers will wear them for the first time. against the Atlanta Braves.  To avoid having your retinas burned out of your skull, we advise wearing a welding mask to Dodger Stadium for the following games:

 

  • May 4, vs. Chicago Cubs
  • June 15, vs. Cincinatti Reds
  • June 22, vs. Detroit Tigers
  • Aug. 10, vs. Philadelphia Phillies
  • Aug. 31 vs. San Diego Padres

In honor of the throwback uniforms, those games will also feature half-price food and drink, including alcoholic beverages, for the first time at Dodger Stadium.  Great…Just what the Pavillion needs –  more obnoxious drunks.  For the real gluttons for punishment, a special half-price six-game ticket plan is available for fans who want to attend each of the games. I can’t wait to see how this plays out…the Pavillion full of blinded, low-rent drunks on a hot afternoon in Los Angeles.

Yeah, that’s not a recipe for disaster at all, but that’s why they are the Dodgers. At least they aren’t handing out baseballs this time.

    Right in every category. You nailed it. Now if the Astros could’ve been scheduled wearing the 1970s TV test pattern orange etc uniforms, that would’ve…well, maybe shot up beer sales. Throwbacks can be nice. What were the fans thinking?

    I simply love the fact that not only is the front office in denial as to their financial problems ( $ 800 million debt)but there’s supposedly talk that Selig might intervene to see if the league hierarchy can help them out of their mess !

    As to the players mentioned in your piece I can’t see really see them contributing much to the team given their predicament .

    Nothing like disco to bring back long faded memories .

    Hey, they need to do something to distract the fans from their team sucking so bad.

    So why not glow-in-the-dark jerseys?

    Why not simply turn Chavez Revine into a community farm because as it is there’s been enough cow manure being dumped there in terms of the team’s —- play over the last few years !

    As bad as it is in Chavez Ravine it’s still better than San Diego. Essentially, we have a minor league baseball team down here.

    Maybe they’ll replace Mannywood with the Brooklyn Beach section! I have a hard time understanding what the Doyers are doing. Isn’t that how you say it Doy-yers with the Spanish accent?!? The McCourts really need to sell the team, that’s pretty much all there is to it…

  7. All I have to say about this is the throwback thing is cool, but if the name of the city doesn’t match the name of the city they play in now, that’s stupid. Could you imagine the Oklahoma City Thunder walking out onto the court in Seattle SuperSonics jerseys? How much of a slap in the face would that be to the city?

    And for the record, does anybody else think that these jerseys look way too much like the Royals’ jerseys?
