Another great photo on the Boesch. And wooo! Dre! Dodgers! Mascots that are creepy!

bamlinden said...

So is the mascot the opening day pitcher?

AdamE said...

Lester is the bright spot of out pitching rotation. Too bad he was up against the AL MVP/CYYoung this morning.

Morgan said...

I was wondering where you were hiding those Braves.

dawgbones said...

I still say the ERROR was putting those frickin cards in this set!! and what, NO Bush tonight?!? And that is one of the creepiest Mascots in MLB. Baxter is another one. And maybe the Mascot could've helped them with the Tides last night??

LV said...

That's a sweet Chase Utley Stadium Lights card!!!

Play at the Plate said...

I like the mascots. My son is collecting them. More Bush!!

night owl said...

I am taking a break in the middle of the Dodgers' season opener (a win, by the way) to comment on this. You should be honored.

Kazi said...

Jays win in 16 innings--hope I have t hei luck in my braek

Dhoff said...

I was wondering if anyone could break through the point system and actually get some points. Some high scorers. Nicicle.

Hackenbush said...

Bob Brenly actually complimented Alfonso Soriano on his defense today.

Fuji said...

I'm with PATP... the mascot cards are awesome. I'm thinking maybe I'll start a mascot binder.
