DODGING THE ISSUE? In L.A., Steve Dilbeck wrote during last weekend's games against the Giants, there was an "oversized, oh-so-cute person in a Dodgers uniform with a giant bobblehead who looks amazingly like a mascot" seen around Dodger Stadium. However, Dodgers Exec VP & CMO Lon Rosen said, "It's not a mascot. It's a unique performance character." Dilbeck noted the "non-mascot mascot ... mostly walked around waving and posing with fans for pictures." The Dodgers, Yankees and Angels are the only MLB teams without a mascot after the Cubs "fell victim in the off-season" (LATIMES.com, 4/8).
