My suggestions for next year's Bobbleheads
Got plenty of comments yesterday in regards to the Dodgers giving out ten (yes, 10!) bobbleheads next year. Read the comments here.
Since suggestions were being made in that thread, I'll tell you what I want.
The Dodgers say that Sandy Koufax is part of the upcoming "Dodger Stadium Greats Bobbleheads" series.
So let me tell you the other nine bobblehads that I would like to see next year.
This series is celebrating Dodger Stadium. It's "Dodger Stadium Greats Bobbleheads". You won't see any players from Brooklyn.
Of course, I have to say Vin Scully is the top choice. It won't happen though. You will have to convince Scully. Click here to read details on the bobblehead and click here on why you might not see a Scully bobblehead. Oh, and click here to read why that Scully bobblehead exists.
I'm still picking Scully. Maybe the Dodgers can find a way to convince him and tell him the fans would really appreciate it!
Koufax and Scully. Here are the rest....
In no particular order.
I know most of you will disagree with my picks. I didn't pick Fernando Valenzuela, Tommy Lasorda, Steve Garvey and Ron Cey because to be honest I'm tired of them. :)
Lasorda already has two bobbleheads. Valenzuela has three!
I don't care that Gibson and Scioscia are current managers. I think it would be cool for them to get one. I know Gibson has one already but he needs one to commemorate the 1988 World Series. And how about Scioscia? He needs one!
I couldn't find room for Don Drysdale, Maury Wills, Bill Russell, Tommy Davis and Don Sutton. Sorry.
I didn't pick current Dodgers. Those are my choices. What are yours?
