Seriously.

I'd love to see the exhaustive market study that was conducted that led to this decision. It's just constant TINKERING and MEDDLING. Just stop it.

I can't decide what would be worse: If the Sox actually did an exhaustive market study on this issue, or if they didn't and made the changes anyway.

I'm sorry, what am I missing? Those screen captures seem to show the gray/white stripes at the end of the sleeves.

I'll advocate the return of the Diamond Sock before this.

Ah, thanks. I would never have noticed if it hadn't been pointed out. No big deal to me.

It's not a big deal. I didn't notice it myself... But that's kind of the point. Why tinker with something so minuscule that wasn't a problem in the first place?

Man, these kids today have absolutely no reading comprehension skills. They just skip over the words in the first ten posts of the thread and skip to the pictures.

I'm all for a slight change.
I have always liked the black/red 1950s inspired look. That first set is nice. I just don't want the SOX to ever go back to that "Batterman" logo. I know it's a favorite of some fans, however to me it always looked like the Pedestrian Crossing signs.

The current set of uniforms have been around for 22 seasons, which is an incredibly long run for any uniform, especially a White Sox uniform. Over that time, I can think of only a few tweaks outside of the occasional sleeve patch...(1) adding names to the back of the home jerseys, (2) changing the script, trim and buttons on the alternate black jerseys, (3) two different home vest alternates, one with real sleeves and one with fake sleeves, (4) the removal of the SOX diamond off of the road jerseys and now (5) the change in the road uniforms trim.

Maybe I missed some other changes, but overall, not much. I'm hoping the SOX wear their Gray Chicago road jerseys today to see whether or not the trim has changed on the jersey. I can't imagine that they would only change the pant legs. It's not like they sell pants in the gift shop.

Then the Sox would've never worn that uniform. They'd have worn the same uniform for almost a century.

I kind of like the black only piping to go with the black tops. But the black/white stripe needs to come back for the greys....hopefully we didn't scrap the grey tops....
