He features the Mets, but the White Sox are the other team doing the same thing.

Putting it in Talking Baseball because its not White Sox-centric.

Is that what that thing is called, the "squatchee" (sp?) I always just called it the button, and I knew that they were just stick-on / painted on for batting helmets. So now this raised vinyl blob is getting slapped on instead?

Consider me underwhelmed.

This is odd for the Sox since their regular cap has a black button on the top.

I only quickly looked at the link and didn't see a pic of the Sox helmet. Is the Sox "squatchee" going to be black or white? If it's black, it won't be noticeable. If it's white, it won't match the cap, unless they're going to change the caps (I always liked the white button on the '76-'81 Sox caps).

How many days until Opening Day? :tongue:
