My favorite Dodger of 2012

It's Juan Uribe, no contest. I read in the LA Times that he pinch hit last night and got a hit in his first plate appearance since Aug. 26. Mattingly must suspect he's still secretly on the Giants payroll.

He hit .204 last year in 270 ABs with 4 HRs and 28 RBIs. He's at .191 this year (31 for 166) with 2 HRs and 17 RBIs. All this for $7 mil a year with another year to go on the deal.

Jason Schmidt, Eugenio Velez, Juan Uribe -- a true murderers' row of ex-Giants ruining Dodger hopes.

Uribe has 12 years in the bigs and a career WAR over 12.0 -- mostly from seasons in 2004 (3.7 with .506 slugging), 2005 (1.9) and 2009 (3.4 with .495 slugging). He was OK in 2010 (1.3) and turned into a pretty awful player once he became a Dodger.
