Completely unnecessary. What is with this new trend of :censored:ty road alternates? First San Francisco, then the Cubs, and now the Dodgers.
And what's somewhat surprising is the fact that those are all "classic" teams, it's not like it's the rays, d-backs, and marlins adding another alternate (although they already have too many). Maybe the road alternates are a way for the older, more established teams to get into the alternate jersey craze.
