Players on the wrong team, but the right uniform

Recommended Posts

IMO Randy Johnson looks awesome in the 90s Astros uniforms. I don't think he looks better in another uniform.

So this is basically a player on a wrong team, but a uniform that looks good?

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.

The 2011 World Series kind of locked the image of Lance Berkman in a Cardinals uniform into my head despite his short tenure in St. Louis.spacer.png

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.

When Rob Beck, a closer for the Giants in the early 90s, was with the Cubs for a season. It looked like the right uniform for him. But it can also be said for some Giants who sign with the Cubs also like Dusty Baker.

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.

I think you should rename this thread to "How can something be so wrong yet feel so right?"

There's one especially right answer here.

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).

I think Gretzky looks best with the Rangers

The real question is, does he look better with the Oilers or Blues?

I'm showing my (relative lack of) age, but  will always think of Wayne as a Ranger.
