Indians unveil new uniforms. We think.

I was directed to a web page this morning which was billed as the Indians unveiling “new uniforms for 2012.”  This was the picture on that web page:

You tell me what’s different, because I’m sort of not seeing it. Based on this pic it appears as though the white piping around the neck and down the buttons of the blue one is gone. Same goes for the blue piping on the white jersey.  That script, however, still dominates. I’ve never liked it. It looks like the writing you’d see on a generic shirt you’d find in the kids department at Marshall’s or something that says “Baseball.”  Or “All Star.”

If I ran the Indians — and I see no reason why I shouldn’t — I’d issue a decree that from now until the end of time they’d wear these uniforms, but with the navy block C cap.

But, hey, maybe the Indians don’t want to look awesome all the time. Who am I to judge?

Cody Bellinger named NLCS MVP

Following a dominant 5-1 win to clinch the National League Championship Series on Saturday night, the Dodgers named outfielder Cody Bellinger their MVP of the series.

Bellinger, 23, made noise when it mattered. Entering Saturday’s game, he carried a meager .190/.227/.238 batting line with just four hits and two RBI, but his hits in Games 4 and 7 became the difference-makers the Dodgers needed to keep pace with the Brewers and clinch the NL pennant. In Game 4, it was Bellinger’s 13th-inning base hit off of Junior Guerra that put the Dodgers over the top for the walk-off 2-1 win. The outfielder returned to put the finishing touches on the series with a go-ahead home run — his first of the postseason — in the second inning of Game 7.

Bellinger wrapped his second season in the Dodgers’ organization in 2018, slashing .260/.343/.470 with 25 home runs, an .814 OPS, and 3.6 fWAR across 632 PA and all 162 games. He’s the youngest Dodgers player to receive the award to date.
