When we return to Tucson in February of 2007, our fellow tennants at the Kino Sports Complex will be sporting new uniforms (http://arizona.diamondbacks.mlb.com/NASApp/mlb/news/article.jsp?ymd=20061109&content_id=1737540&vkey=news_ari&fext=.jsp&c_id=ari). I like the look of these Sedona red and Sonora sand uniforms.

I think the Arizona Astro uniforms look great ......
err I mean the Houston Dbacks outfits .....

Now, when we watch Sportscenter, and theyre showing Brewers vs DBacks and Astros vs Padres, we'll have no idea who is playing ....

I'm sick of all solid color jerseys--including the Sox. I understand why they do it, but I wish they would limit the amount of games they wear them. And when both teams wear them in the same game, it looks stupid. I like home whites and road grays-period.

they need to get rid of the snake D and put that on their hats.

The current Rockies uniforms are the ugliest in baseball. The Hat, LOGO, Home uniform, Road uniform, practice top, jackets, alternate jerseys ....
Across the board UGGGGGGGGGGGGLLLLLLLLYYYYYYYYY

This new Dback uniform was documented in another thread, MLB forgot the Dbacks showed up for their new uniform unveiling, so these were hastily put together. Its an Astros uniform with "Arizona" substituted instead.

What is with these crappy fonts they're using now (like on the Padres uniform, then the Nationals, now the D-Backs)? You can't make anything more creative than that?

I'm glad the Sox uniforms kick ass and will be around for a long time.

So do I. And, IMO, the throwbacks need to stay just that, throwbacks. The MB glove logo is pretty sweet, but to me it just screams 1980s. Maybe if they update it with the darker blue and another one of their current colors...but the light blue/yellow just isn't doing it for me.

Granted, the uniforms are fairly derivative of Washington and Houston, however, I don't think they look bad and I will be thrilled to forever purge the memory of those hideous teal and purple unis.

Egads those are bad. I don't mind the colors but the "DBACKS" looks ridiculous and the font is not cool. I can't quite quite figure exactly what I don't like about it, just that something is not right with it. They look silly. Granted the color scheme of the old uniforms wasn't great, but they had a better look to them. These, just don't.

Whats with uniforms becoming so annoyingly simple lately? It seems to be a league-to-league thing as well. The NBA only has maybe 4-5 teams with decent looking uniforms while the rest are just color-schemed carbon copies.

The only league that seems to be improving is the NFL. I'm no Vikings fan but those new unis are great dido for the Arizona Cardinals.

Yeah but then we would have been saying they were taking the mets' color scheme. Honestly, I think the new color scheme is 100x better than the old one...No baseball team should be wearing purple, the Rockies included. I think the old uniforms and logos should have been kept and only the colors should have changed.

Hangar, it isn't even close to being the Rockies. Granted, they get a lot of points taken off for those stomach churning black vests, but the the color scheme is great.
The hats are nice. Hats don't have to be the team's primary color if they are darker than the primary. For instance, the Red Sox look great in navy hats. The Astros primary color is red, but they wear black hats. The problem is not the hat.
I personally like their purple alternate, and think they should wear it more. Their road jerseys are also good and distinctive. They need to tweak the colors on the numbers. Besides the atrocious black vests, which are some of the worst pieces of crap to ever see a baseball diamond, their home uni and their home vest suck. They are blatant copies of the Sox homes, with no purple at all. If they redid the home jersey, with purple numbers, and kept the black hats, they would look great. Black works well in their color scheme, but they should accentuate purple as their primary color.

The fact that you would mention the Rockies leads me to believe your craziness has some caused you to no longer recognize the Blue Jays as a team. They have BY FAR the worst uniforms in baseball. The Mets are also a walking embarrassment, along the Brewers "lets wipe our ass with tradition, adopt trendy colors, a generic wordmark, and use times new roman on our jerseys" movement, and the Marlins "lets eliminate one of the few unique looks in baseball and make our uniforms all black like everyone else" embarrassment. Aside from the black vests, the Rockies are lightyears ahead of all those teams. The Reds last set sucked it hard, but we will see how their new unis look.

If by great you mean ridiculous, hideous, disgusting, and humiliating, the Vikings uniforms are great. The NFL, up until recently, was the best league colorwise, but even their colors are starting to suck now with the "lets make our colors darker shades, and use navy whenever possible" bandwagon. No team has done a decent upgrade since the Buccaneers, and even theirs was replacing one very good look with another that will look dated in 10 years, which will cause them to change everything again.

aWhy the heck do the D-Backs keep changing uni's? The first ones were pretty ugly, but the ones they had recently were pretty sharp.I'd be willing to bet this was not the D-Backs idea to even change the unis. Also, it said they tweaked the "D" logo. Probably because it may have been bordering on copyright infringement.

PKalltheway

The Reds home jerseys aren't that bad. Their road jerseys are awful. If they would have just worn their all-red caps for all of their home games, and gotten rid of the black inside of the wishbone "c," their home jerseys would be perfect. They're far from the worst as far as team history goes. Remember the jerseys they had in the '90's with the pinstriped hats?:puking:
I'm anxious to see what their new jerseys will look like.

The only teams that should have black in their uniforms are the White Sox, Rockies, and to a lesser extent, the Giants (the black and orange tradition and all).

As White Sox fans, we're walking on thin ice when it comes to criticising other teams uniforms. Imagine if there were websites around when we unveiled the pajamas and shorts in the late 70s. :redface:

Look on the brightside, there is one more reason to like our uniforms - the best in the game! (Yankees and Dodgers next). IMO. :smile:

Id say the color scheme is an improvement over the teal. I know it completely copies off the Nats, Astros, and NHL Coyotes, but anything is better than teal/purple.

What really sucks is the stupid lettering.

And the black alternate. Why must every team have a black alternate???

The Dodgers and Yankees always get a reprieve because their unis are classic and timeless (much like the Sox now). If you go back and look at what the other teams were wearing in that time period, it wasn't much better.

The Cubs road uniforms from the late 70s:

Of course anything other than their last uniform/logo selection is an upgrade.

Once again, the Rockies aren't even close to having the worst uniforms in baseball, let along UGLIEST IN PROSPORTS. Off the top of my head, these teams' embarrassments are far worse than anything the Rockies wear other than the black vests:

BLUE JAYS
Mets
Buffalo Sabres - mindblowingly horrible
Atlanta Thrashers
Brewers
Anahiem Ducks
Nashville Predators
Washington Capitals
Washington Wizards
Charlotte Bobcats
N.O. Hornets
76ers
Golden State Warriors
Orlando Magic
Phoenix Suns
Sacramento Kings
Utah Jazz
Buffalo Bills
Cincinatti Bengals
Denver Broncos
Minnesota Vikings
Detroit Lions
Atlanta Falcons
Arizona Cardinals
Seattle Seahawks

You may not like their colors, but from a design or an aesthetic standpoint, the Rockies' unis aren't even in the bottom 20.
