I agree completely. The Angels still don't look right to me with solid red caps. This, on the other hand, look beautiful . . . and right for the Angels.

I know this is probably unpopular, but I liked when the Dodgers had a white outline on the white jersey numbers. The Rays still do this. I guess it got started because, like the Rays currently, they used the same numbers on both home and road (and the Rays use them on both alts, as well). It may be superfluous, but I'd love to see the Dodgers ad a base-layer to the back font in the color of the jerseys. There's something nice about that little unnecessary touch that you can only see up-close.

I'm pretty sure the Orioles have black outlines on their black jerseys. I think they also have black-orange-black sleeve piping, but only the orange shows up from a distance.

I got all screwed up deleting things, so everything I wrote/added is in BOLD.

Orioles have a black outline on the numbers for the black jersey, but it is only a single orange stripe for the sleeves.

However, the Orange jersey does use the normal black orange black stripes found on the white and grey

This is false. The black jersey has no outlines on the numbers, wordmark or stripes on the sleeves.

Regarding the Mets' blues, I actually really like them - especially love the Mr. Met patch - it's just the orange-brimmed cap I don't like. They really only need the solid blue cap altogether. Wear that with the alt blues and I think it's a good combo altogether.

That said though, white pinstripes are still the most preferable home set.

You can see the black outline on Manny Machado's jersey.

Dodgers in pinstripes for selected home day games would work great for them. I also like the pinstripe hat as well, which puts me in the minority here. Maybe in 100 years from now the pinstriped home could be their primary home uniform, if they ever go that route. They did wear pinstripes in Brooklyn back in the 20's I think. Long before my time. A blue alternate interleague jersey with the "Dodgers" written across the chest in plain white and nothing more would be great, accompanied with a white panel cap, similar to the 77-92 Blue Jays home cap with a blue "LA" logo would work perfectly for the Dodgers, but I'm only dreaming here. Once again, I'm in the minority here, but I'm for the Dodgers adding a pinstripe uniform set, blue alternate jersey and making minor tweaks on their word mark for their other three uniforms for next season.

no f-ing way

I was going to say, unless the official Orioles team store at Oriole Park at Camden Yards was selling wrongly made authentic, which is where I looked closely at the jersey hands on, not to mention watching my team got it wrong then i dunno how I could be.

Then it is a (somewhat) recent change. My authentic Tejada jersey I bought back in the day from the stadium team shop doesn't have the outlines anywhere. I apologize for my previous comment.

I really like the Rangers in red caps and red undershirts. It a nice balance with the blue wordmark and blue numbers.

I like that too, but I know some take issue with it. If they went back to a red wordmark, it'd be too Angel-like now.

Plus, the reverse is pretty common, so blue wordmark with red shouldn't be jarring. It works with Texas really being as even a red and blue team as can be.

I'm one of those that take issue with it.

They had it right when the caps and letters were red...

Mixing the two just looks...off...

I am with Jungle Jim. The red cap and undershirts looks totally unbalanced to me with the blue wordmark and numbers.

You can see it better in this picture where the undershirt is visible.

Whenever the Rangers wear their red hats at home, I truly believe they take the title of "worst uniforms in baseball" for those 9 innings.

Hopefully the Blue Jays will finish them off tomorrow so we don't have to see that combo in the ALCS.

We don't need mixing and matching period in the MLB. This isn't Pac-12 football. If you want an alternate jersey with an alternate hat, fine, whatever. But stick to one official home look, and one official road look.

Yea that Rangers look is weird. Its also probably strongly connected to the fact that we know its a mismatch. Maybe if that was their look from day one we'd be more accepting of it but knowing they're either a red team or a blue team makes it harder to accept them as a mixed red and/or blue team.

I think the Rangers look better as a "blue team." Not to mention in the AL West, you've already got a red team in the Angels (who were wearing red first), a green team in the A's, a teal (?) team in the Mariners and an orange team in the Astros. The Rangers thus are the only blue team and stand out in that regard. And while I mentioned earlier my appreciation for the navy-and-red Angels, that was different because that's how they looked initially and did it properly. The Rangers simply switching between red and blue doesn't work for me.

Why don't the Rangers just bring this back as a home alt jersey? Wear the red cap exclusively with this set and the red alt jersey and that fixes the mismatch problem, and it also fixes the nickname problem they have, too.

They were a mixed red/blue team for their first 10+ years

But a balanced red-blue team. Their current inability to choose one, the other, or design a truly balanced set is absurd. Their red cap is so out of place with the main uniforms.

That picture is a blue team with red trim. Which is ok. What they have now is a bipolar team that some games wears all red and some games wears all blue so when they wear red caps with their home white (blue lettering) jersey its a nasty mixup. In the 90s they were a red team, in the 2000s they were a blue team. Suddenly now in the 2010s they're a confusion of the two.
