  1. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    These have probably been posted, but it's not practical to search and find out. From 1975 until about 2000, I knew about everything there was to know about the Cincinnati Reds, but I had forgotten that George Foster played for the White Sox. I was aware of Parker's time in Milwaukee, but it still doesn't seem real.
  2. Players with the wrong hair style

    I actually prefer this version of Justin Turner over the current version, but if you consider the current look to be his "normal" look, then I guess this would be considered the "wrong" look...

    As a fashion statement, much like kids have worn shirts with Converse, Nike, etc. on them for decades. I have two tweens and UA is the only brand they ask for in their tee shirts and hoodies. Don't get me wrong, we don't buy UA all the time because it's too expensive for something they'll outgrow in a few months, but we let them have something two or three times a year, on special occasions.

    Once my Reds are out of it, which is most every year for the past 40 years, I root for laundry. As a major part of that, I root for teams that forego the softball tops. This World Series, I was neutral, because I love the Dodgers uniforms (and Dodger Stadium) and didn't mind to see Houston finally get a championship. But once I saw the Astros had pulled out the Spring Training jerseys for Game 7, I was full on-board as a Dodgers fan for the night. It's unfortunate that the last two World Series have made history with the champions looking like Little Leaguers.

    So many franchises in both the NFL and MLB got it so right in the 1960s.

    In a vacuum, the orange bill cap is fine, but after their historically wearing only solid caps, it looks out of place to me. I just can't get used to it. Their best cap of all time has already been phased out, that being the solid orange. I've thought since the return of the current set that they should wear orange caps and lettering on the home whites and navy caps and lettering on the road grays.

    He writes for ESPN, but I don't think he has an ESPN "page" anymore, just the Uni Watch page.

    Well, Bauer needs to start every game, then.

    I agree!
  10. Names below the number

    My Reds did it, but I don't like it at all.

    Bu...bu...but I thought the softball jerseys were good luck and stuff. Wasn't that the primary reason they won the ALCS and went up 3-1 in the World Series last year? That's what their Twitter account said.

  13. Los Angeles Rams Brand Discussion

    Regardless of the shade of blue, the helmet and the jersey need to match. The mismatching is a relic of the past, but not a charming one, just as there's nothing charming or attractive about what the Cowboys do.

    I wish to never see vests or sleeveless jerseys on a baseball field again. If we're sharing wish lists, mine would be that the Reds eliminate the black altogether and go back to a basic number and letter font.
