No, any color other than white for pants is a road uniform. White is the standard and always has been, just because some teams want to wear a throwback road uniform at home doesn’t mean they should. It even says in the rule book teams are to have a white home uniform and a “color other than white” for the road uniform.

Does cream fall under "white" or "a color other than white"?

I don’t know specifically, but I believe it’s considered a white uniform for teams like the giants, and Phillies

I’m aware of the rule book, and I give exactly zero bleeps in this situation. It contrasts with grey and looks amazing, therefore I have no problem with it.

You have a call on line one from a "1936 Cincinnati Reds." The 1976 White Sox are still on hold.

It might go against tradition a little, but I don't mind the Phillies wearing those uniforms at home where their own fans can enjoy them. I find powder blues to be a tad bit overrated as a whole now that they are making a resurgence as throwbacks, but the Phillies iteration is definitely the sharpest. I was impressed by them last night. Are they scheduled to wear them more this season?

Thursday home games.  I think there's 8 of them?

 

That particular version is inaccurate, as it should have a zipper rather than buttons.

Playing baseball, a summer game in a dome or roofed stadium is sacrilege. Uniform colors don't pop,  It looks ugly, boring, lifeless, both in person and on TV.

 

Retract  the roof! So what  if some rain falls, or that it gets a little hot, what did the audience do 50-100 years ago? They were happy just being outdoors.

But i guess the sunshine these days makes it hard to read your cell phone, which you of course are glued to instead of the game your paid money to see.

 

 Thank goodness for the huge distracting nets they had to install so people like you don't have to pay attention to the game. You are comfortable in your seat, shaded from foul balls, wind, rain and sunshine. And can both text and eat nachos and huge burgers without any nasty distractions. 

 

 

 

Trash take. Go sit outside in Phoenix for four hours in July and talk to me about it.

He’s a walking trash take and a troll. The guys is full of many “kids these days” points, constant negativity, and tired jokes. 

 

People like this should receive this treatment:

...with Extra Terrestrian: Die Ausserirdische as the film of choice. It ruins childhoods far more efficiently that The Last Jedi, because TLJ didn’t involve any “dirty business,” if you get my drift. 😜

I noticed that. I wonder why they went the zipper route originally instead of V-neck pullover.

Alex would have gone vegetative if he saw the thing I mentioned.

 

Here’s a content hint: It involves a petite woman wearing this diseased, garbage bag-looking, skintight costume with a decent replica of E.T.’s head. The experience is akin to watching your first furry orgy as a non-furry. You’re left disgusted, a little bored, and overall feeling pretty terrible about the life decisions which drove you here.

 

I won’t post pictures, as I know that Chris would flip if I put them here.

So, doing the Wikipedia updates for the uniforms.   Looking back it seems that the Marlins are wearing white at home, gray on the road, and black Saturday, Sunday, and sometimes Friday (unless they just had a number of Fridays off and that's why I only saw Sat/Sun at first).   Where's the blue?   I know there's a blue BP, but the blue was bandied about and is still labeled as an alt.   They reneg on that, or plan on wearing it once or twice like the Yankees did that year everyone got pressed into doing it with their BPs?   What's with the Marlins and quickly disappearing uniforms?

If it’s labeled as an alt, then it belongs on Wikipedia.  Even if they haven’t yet worn it.

I don't believe they have worn or intend on wearing the black alternates on Sundays. Right now it seems to be Friday and Saturdays only for those. I don't know how the Marlins have listed the blue jersey in official documentation but it's always been clear to me that it is currently being relegated to spring training and batting practice only. It might become a game jersey in the future, but it does not appear to be now. So I would not put that in the same category as the infamous orange cap, which the wore for a total of 4 games between 2012 and 2018. I don't know how much recent precedent there is for teams to wear their BP jerseys in the regular rotation for game's during the season. I suspect we might see something like that eventually, but most certainly not this season.

 

In short, I don't think the team is reneging on the blue jersey. There just might be some kind of quirk in how it's being listed or somebody made a mistake.

Maybe they just want to preserve the option of wearing it in a game?  I really don't know how MLB rules work.

I'm not versed too well on those rules, either. I do suppose that's a possibility.

 

I distinctly recall several instances in recent years where teams have worn BP jerseys during regular season games and apparently this was permitted. I have to imagine that this was more a case of MLB looking the other way than those teams listing the BP jersey as an alternate, but who knows.

They've been wearing black on Fridays and Saturdays only. Whites on Sundays at home.

Yea we discussed this at the start of the season and it was said the blue jerseys were ST only, despite fans wanting it.  I'm hoping for a version of it for player's weekend.
