To me, this is a better contender for Mutombo:

Also for consideration/debate:

I wouldn't call any of those uniforms "awful"...in fact, the first two are better than what they wear now.

Oh, come on...look I'm as much of a sucker for the Rams in Royal/Yellow as the next guy but the original Navy/Gold is far from "awful"

Hoffman was with the Padres from 1993-2008, meaning he only played about 5 seasons in the above look.  I always associate him more with this:

His display at the Hall of Fame, and most of the giveaways the Padres have had to celebrate his induction, have been in the mid-00s look.

 

It's like how Hank Aaron only wore the lowercase "a" for three years but that's the one he's remembered in because that's the one he broke the record in.

Comparing anything to the current Hawks and Rams uniforms is the lowest of bars to clear.

Hopefully if they can win another cup together before they retire, the current/throwback look will be their right uniform.

The sad part is, I can see what they were trying to do with this set, but it still stinks. It's much better in theory than in practice.

Definitely Wright's correct uniform, but a HOFer he's not. (and won't be)

At least not every uniform hes worn has sucked.  Hopefully his hat will look more like this in Cooperstown.

Maybe HOF-caliber is pushing it, but with Chase Utley's retirement announcement, there's no better time to say this:

The Phillies' uniforms suck. I've hated them my whole life.
