However, as you can see above, the Los Angeles Dodgers were able to take the concept and have fun with it, fun that didn't necessarily poke fun at someone else for dumb reasons. All their rookies dressed up as wrestlers as part of their indoctrination into the Bigs. I can't identify the players, but their wrestler counterparts, from the left, are Ultimate Warrior, Hulk Hogan, "Macho Man" Randy Savage (or is that Jay Lethal?), Iron Sheik, Rey Mysterio, Ric Flair, Sting, and Rowdy Roddy Piper. That's one heck of a murderer's row right there. Barring a massive collapse on their part and a miracle finish from the San Francisco Giants, the Dodgers are likely headed to the playoffs as National League West Champions. Maybe this bit of good karma will help them drop an elbow on the competition.
