Only two teams had big reworks this year, but:


Sweet Jesus. These things are awful in practice. What is that Sand? Stucco?

As for Toronto...



The good news is that the font, the charcoal make a good uniform. Unfortunately, the number and name on the back looks like StarTrek.

Thumbs in the middle for Toronto, thumbs way down for the Pads road unis.

We stopped pretending we would ratify Kyoto. We only spent $15 billion on AIDS in Africa. We did not take dictation from Paris. If we had done these things, it would minimize the world’s anger.

Is the world angry at Russia, which spends nothing on AIDS and rebuffed Kyoto? Is the world angry at China, which got a pass on Kyoto and spends nothing on AIDS for other countries?

Is the world angry at North Korea for killings its people? Angry at Iran for smothering that vibrant nation with corrupt and thuggish mullocracy? Angry at Syria for occupying Lebanon? Angry at Saudi Arabia for its denial of women’s rights? Angry at Russia for corrupt elections? Is the world angry at China for threatening Taiwan, or angry at France for joining the Chinese in joint military exercises that threatened the island on the eve of an election? Is the world angry at Zimbabwe for stealing land and starving people? Is the world angry at Pakistan for selling nuclear secrets? Is the world angry at Libya for having an NBC program?

Is the world angry at the thugs of Fallujah?

Is the world angry at anyone besides America and Israel?

I watched some of the Padres/Dodgers game, and they indeed labeled the color as "sand." I agree with Grimis that those are about the worst uniforms I can think of. Of course the bad colors didn't help my Dodgers as they got shellacked by the sandpadres.

If I were Halladay I'd have refused to pitch in that hideous thing. I think the number and font on the back of the Jays' jersey is TONS worse than the whole Pads' uniform.

Well, both are better than the old "futuristic" uniforms baseball subjected us to a few years ago, and mysteriously I cannot find any photos online of any of them!

Ok I'm not a Pads fan so maybe that would slant my opinion, but I actually like those uniforms. The color works for me.

The back of the BlueJays gear is typical for them. They had those wacky curved numbers and space-age font in the late 70's..so I guess it's part of their tradition. Even in the early 90's, they still sported the space-age/70's look. I'm not crazy about shortening it to just "Jays", though. I like the new logo more than that goofy red "T" with a bird snaking around it.

I agree with you guys.. the "Turn Ahead the Clock" uniforms from 1999 had to have been the WORST promo idea in MLB history. Watching the Pirates in their awful RED t-shirts, I kept thinking: "okay, the game's starting... time to put on your uniforms. Umm, guys.. uniforms!" They looked like the guys who work the balloons at Macy's Thanskgiving Day Parade.

Actually, the logo is OK, and the graphite colored hat is, er, different. But there is a radical disconnect between the front font and the back font.

I would give eternal thanks to anybody who could find the photos of Mo Vaughn in that ugly Angels shirt from the TURN UP THE CLOCK period.

I actually like the Padres new uniforms. Quite a bit.

I think the Jays just wanted to save a few bucks by purchasing leftover Tampa Bay Devil Rays gear and airbrushing a "J" over the "R". I think the logo would be OK if someone else weren't already doing it...well, except for the bird which looks less like a Blue Jay and more like a rabid chicken.

The Pads road unis look fine to me...baseball uniforms should be kept simple, and the colour is at least a difference from the usual 'white at home, grey on the road'.

Front of the Jays logo is good. Back of it sucks.

Lettering on the Padres logo is good, the rest sucks.

Why'd they bother changing from the one they won the World Series in?




(Not Bob Kohm)


In the context of baseball, the use of drugs hurts only the player. In the context of baseball, the use of alcohol hurts only the player. In the context of baseball, womanizing hurts whom? Maybe the wife of the player? In the context of baseball, felonies are crimes against society, not against baseball. In the context of baseball, gambling is the only crime against baseball.

Gambling, in the context of baseball, is a capital offense and Rose has richly earned-- hell, he agreed to-- his death sentence. Let him hang.

The White, Jay's Jersey's are okay, the dark ones are not.

I heard they changed the logo to take away any Canadiana from it so they can sell it better in the states... I think Blue Jay's marketing director is the same guy who's changing all the WWE Canadian babyfaces hometown.

I much prefer the T with the Jay flexing his bicep. At least there was a Maple Leaf in there. The new colours of blue and grey are so cold.
