Love the Orioles' new digs, hate the Red Sox's.

I actually love the Red Sox' new road set.

I still hate the Mets' patches and wish Washington would make their home look like their road.

The Mets have had a bad uniform ever since they adopted black as one of their primary colors. Get rid of it by god!

I'm just bummed at the lack of two-tone hats in the bigs.

Really glad the O's went back to "Baltimore" on the road.

Texas scrapped their helmets before the season could begin - another good thing.

The Mets stadium patch is god awful, and I can't believe they are going to play 162 games with a dominos logo on their sleeves.

The alternate stadium logo looks fine, don't know why they didn't go with that.

Those Texas helmets were hilariously bad! I'm a little sad to see them go, since I wanted to catch a glimpse of them in real life!

Does the alternate say 'Citi Field' on it? If so, they can't have a coorperation on a jersey.

I totally agree. The black with the Mets has nothing to do with anything. It was 100% to try and sell jerseys to the kids who think its cool or whatever.

It just looks awful.

No. They're wearing the other patch on the side of their hat. You can see what it will look like in this gif:

I can't find a good, clean image of the final patch, but it looks like this only put 2009 at the top (over citi Field) and the cut it off underneathe season.

I just found that on Uni Watch. That patch on the hat is a really good looking design. It only makes sense that the Mets would screw it up and not put it on their sleeves.

I am really surprised to see the Cubs getting rid of the red bill....

Baltimore looks great, and I saw those damn texas helmets in MLB the show yesterday, yuck!

I like the Pirates black jersey, the one team besides the Sox where a black jersey makes sense.

I think they're keeping the blue with the TWINS on the front and scrapping the MINNESOTA ones.

I'm surprised the Cubs dropped the hat as well as I thought the red-white-blue color scheme was to help establish their "America's Team" image.

I still can't believe they have the cute bear cub with extended paw alternate jerseys. Why don't they just use the regular Cub logo on a blue jersey?!

I was watching a rain-delay show on the 1969 Cubs and I hate to admit that their road uniforms actually looked pretty good. They should retro back into those unis. Especially since they are so captivated with losing...:D:

I'm glad the Sox aren't making unnecessary changes to the best uniforms in MLB.

I dunno about best (:rolleyes:) but it seems like the Sox have a winning combo, after forty years of red pinstripes, baby blue, shorts, "the future", and whatnot.

As a Tigers fan, I pretty much never expect uniform changes in the off-season. The home will never change, and the current aways are becoming their own classic.

Nope, Sox are best :tongue:

The new lettering/numbering for Texas is horrendous.

I think each team should have an alternate pull-over uniform, ala...

I love that A's prospect Corey Wimberly is wearing green stirrups! Everything is cyclical - maybe stirrups will come back.

They're a bit extreme, i prefer Nyjer Morgan's.

They're about the same, they both wear the high cut look. I'd love to see that look come back!

Good to hear! I was the only one on my college team to rock 'em, and lo and behold, this year we got a third baseman who asked me where I got 'em and next week he was wearing a pair of his own!

It's like I tell my friends, it is the way a baseball uniform was meant to be worn. I'm not a good ball player, but god damn, I can wear that uniform!

Those red bill Cubs hats were horrible. Not that I like any Cubs hat but those are far worse than the solid blue ones. Red Barchetta is right though, those alt blue jerseys with the rat running through the red C is one of the worst in baseball. They must be a good seller though because the Cubs tried to get rid of it one year and then brought it back. It is the most pwecious wittle uniform in baseball.:tongue:
