2017 Import Dragon Figurines -- Corey Seager Variant

Check this out figurine collectors.

As you know Import Dragon recently took over for McFarlane as the official maker of MLB figurines, and they just released their crop of 2017 statues. Both Corey Seager and Clayton Kershaw are available. Check those out in my previous post here.

I just discovered that there is a limited edition Corey Seager variant figurine available, as well. Check it out above and below. It is limited to 1,000 copies and features Seager in a Dodger road grey uniform. His base figurines shows him in home whites.

The Dodgers don't need no stinkin' rain delay!

With a 9-1 lead at the top of the eighth inning the game got delayed as a massive downpour suddenly overtook Chicago. It was as if someone turned on the shower as some unsuspecting drunk slept it off in the tub. Nevertheless, it was likely a welcome respite -- especially for ice cream loving rookie Cody Bellinger (as evidenced in the photo on the right). He decided to enjoy a cone and a cup-o'-noodles in the clubhouse before the game got called in the Dodgers favor.

The win extends their winning streak to 11 games. Per Ken Gurnick and Fabian Ardaya at
"The confidence we have in our group that we're going to win a game, is real," said Dodgers manager Dave Roberts. "The talent in the room, the confidence we have, is real. Now it's go out and do it. You can talk about it, but you have to go out and do it and, so, we're doing it."
