Take the Mets home uniforms, remove the pinstripes and make the White Black, perfect Friday Night alt to satiate the fans that like Black while not :censored:ing with the regular uniforms

 

Also I'd be 100% in favor of reintroducing the racing stripes as a Sunday alt or honestly even a full time thing, may or may not be a hot take but those to me are the quintessential Mets uniforms

The Mets had two black hats at the same time, which was super weird and totally pointless. They had the all black hat with the drop shadow which was a total mess and was ugly as all hell.

But, they also had the road black cap with the blue bill and that is and will always be one of my favorite caps of all time. This should have been the only Mets black cap, and it would’ve been cool to see it used today (with a black jersey) in a similar frequency to how the Cardinals now use the navy cap.

I think the perfect black Mets cap would be a combination of the two: the logo with the white outline of the top version, and the blue brim of the bottom version. That way, the insignia matches the coloring of the wordmark, but the cap has enough blue to not feel quite as BFBS.

IIRC, this was the first November in quite a few years there were no new alts and no new hats.

Are we thinking there's going to be relatively few changes this offseason? It certainly seems to be shaping up that way.

 

Only thing I've heard is the Giants adding NOBs to the home uniforms

The Giants keep picking away at their amazing uniforms, each minor change being a major downgrade.

 

When you get a design right, leave it the hell alone.

I get wanting to add names to the home set, if only because they are in full transition mode away from the 3-in-5 era/“Bobby Evans special contract” days and want to “catch up” to the rest of the majors (excluding Yankees and home Red Sox).
 

It’s not that good (nor is it that bad), but I 100% get the sentiment. I’d much rather fix the road uniforms and do a better black alternate (no shadows), but that’s just me.

MLB has requested proposals from sponsorship & marketing agencies asking for input on the pricing, value and suitability of sleeve patches & batting helmet decal ads.

Very weird that a team that's had no NOB for so long would suddenly want to switch to NOB now. Just seems like something that should already be accepted as the norm for them.

Better than having no sports at all.

 

Maybe I'm not understanding your point, but how is having no sports at all the alternative to having no ad patches? I'd wager that the sport would survive and do just fine without plastering ads on jerseys, caps, and helmets. This is purely greed.

I don't get that either.

I don't think the Mets look good in black but this post made me aware of the top cap and... I prefer it.

 

Black and royal is generally an ugly combo, IMO, so the blue brim just doesn't work for me. The extra pop of white makes the team colors stand out much better. Still, best remaining as merch rather than on field apparel.

Top cap is my all time favorite version of the Mets NY. Yes, even over the primary one which is the one that they should be using full time.
