Players on the wrong team, but the right uniform


Recommended Posts

If the thread is “player on the wrong team but in a better looking uniform”, then I’ll say Bryce Harper with the Phillies:

(Especially the throwbacks)

BUT if the thread were “player on the wrong team but in the uniform you still associate with him/her nonetheless”, then A-Rod with the Rangers comes to mind. Even after all his years as a Yankee, I never got the association of him as a Ranger out of my head. Couldn’t tell you why, I have no idea. It’s just there.

Me too but only because I had a Sports Illustrated For Kids poster of him in a Rangers jersey hanging in my room.

Steve Smith and any veteran who signs with the Ravens seems to fit with their looks.  

 

Truth!

Well, maybe not the last one... kinda nuts they didn't win another title or two in the mid-00's. Those teams were absolutely stacked.

Every time I see or think of the Mariners’ Star + Trident, I think of Gaylord Perry (I’m guessing because of his 300th win). It’s probably the milestone effect, but the Mariners look at least more right than wrong on him to me.

Dan Uggla was a Giant for one week, but what a week it was!

Yes, AJ Piezynski counts, if only because of the terribleness of the trade (but hey, the Twins were in a better place than the Giants at the time).
