The one thing I always loved going way back to my childhood in the stone age was being able to see all the uniforms during player introductions at the ASG.  Since that's now going away I have zero reason to watch unless I want to watch pitchers get strip searched on live tv.  So thank you Rob Manfred for continuing to take the joy out of baseball.  


All the more reason why we’ll be getting a strike. The “substance checks” might be what pushes the needle over the edge.

It probably was time consuming, but I’m confident that’s exactly what they did.

 

I know from working with the Brewers that throwback jerseys have to be locked down about the middle of the previous season.  They get manufactured in the off-season. 


Yup. They produce hundreds of thousands of these and the time to put them together is daunting. It’s usually a two year turnaround even on smaller projects when you’re working with a company that produces as much as Nike does.

Yep, which begs the question why they ever switched from Majestic. I'd never seen any issue with the Majestic kits. And they didn't deface them with their own damn logo. 

Majestic didn’t have the cash to compete with the others

1. They're hardly "defaced." That's just hyperbole.

 

 

No, this is defacing the most iconic jersey in North American sports. An advertisement is displayed as prominently as the team's logo, there are no "yeah buts" to get around that fact.

So what's the over/under on MLB coming out quietly some time either over the weekend or early next week and reversing course based on the near universal derision for these jerseys and the idea of wearing them during the game (I've only seen a handful of responses anywhere online both social media and the press who are onboard with these things or using them during the game) and announces they've "heard the fans" and will be playing with the usual regular unis with an ASG patch during the game?

I say there's a 10% chance of them not wearing them.

Yep, and that’s really what this comes down to. Colorado isn’t to blame for any of this, as it looks like they were going to be used regardless of location. The fact that the MLB had planned to go with these at all - whether in Atlanta or elsewhere - is awful.

 

I could understand the thought process behind the design when the game was originally announced.  Atlanta probably has the best known 3-letter abbreviation of any MLB market, so I guess that's what they were going for. The execution is terrible, but I could see what they were thinking.

 

The last ASG in Denver had excellent uniforms:

Absolutely none based on the rest of their dimwit decisions this year that have been universally panned. Yet MLB continues to defend them to the death

I'd agree if not for their quick binning of the Padres Nazi caps last year. Occasionally, very occasionally, they wise up and realize they've screwed up and fix it. 

 

Just a matter if this is one of those times.

i think they will say (if they say anything at all)  that they have to wear them due to the contract with Nike.

One teams hat having a swastika on it and replacing it is different than having a whole run of jerseys and hats for all teams getting scrapped just because the design is bad. They’re completely different situations.

Oh sure... wouldn't it have hurt to put a Canadian flag on the Blue Jays jersey? 

now that is wrong that they couldn't even be bother to put the Canadian Flag on the Blue Jays jersey.

Oh I don't expect they'll be scrapped completely. What I expect is they'll quietly switch it back to these being worn during the Home Run Derby when it's traditional expected the teams will wear some form of ASG jersey, even a thing that looks worse than if they dressed the guys in actual garbage bags for the Derby, and they'll switch back to the players wearing their regular uniforms for the actual all star game.

PLEASE don’t let this happen when the game comes back to Los Angeles. We’ve waited FORTY YEARS PLUS for it to return to The Racine and we don’t want it ruined with bull-ish like this.

You meant the Ravine, right?  Unless you really want the ASG in my hometown 😄 It'd be cool and all but we're too small.

Okay, so even *if* these were hand-me-downs from the cancelled All-Star Game in Atlanta 🗣🗣 FOR THE LOVE OF GOD WHAT DOES A HAWAIIAN FLORAL PATTERN HAVE TO DO WITH THE BRAVES OR CITY OF ATLANTA???
