Pirates in Ketchup Red

Recommended Posts

they absolutely have to wear the alt cap to pull this off. Otherwise the red is totally arbitrary. El grosso.

Maybe they wanted to, I don't know, sell more product?

A black alternate with yellow script and (maybe) white outlines would have accomplished the same result without pissing all over the team's identity.

For instance:

That jersey wouldn't work because they wouldn't let pitchers wear yellow sleeves, especially yellow long sleeves. It would make it harder for the batters to pick up the ball out of the pitcher's hand.

Well the Yankees originally wore pinstripes to make Babe Ruth look slimmer, so I say go for it.

No, that is still a flaming pile of crap because it is a vest. Vests should only be white or gray, not dark colors and certainly not with lighter sleeves than the vest.

Give your creation sleeves and it is great.

It just seems the Pirates are following the 1979 We Are Fam-a-lee look to play a part in the club's history of eyesore uniforms.

It's only appropriate for the Pirates to wear ketchup uniforms ... After all, Heinz is based in Pittsburgh!

Some pics not involving Barry Bonds

It would look much better with the alternate hat.

Ok, now ima probably take some flack for this but I would think it would look about a thousand times better with the alt hat and either black or, gulp, even RED pants. I think the worst part of this set is the white pants. I think I feel the same about baseball as I do football. I HATE it when the pants, jersey, and headgear are all different colors. At least two of the elements really should match in some way. Hell, even the red billed hat would balance it out a lot better. Personally id love to see a black vest with red trim and red sleeves, the alt hat, and black pants and red socks. Yes itd be WAY off from any normal look, but if theyre going to go for a really different, kinda out there look, why not go all the way?

I hope they lose every game that they wear those. Those things are awful.

That shouldn't be too hard....

Lose the red piping around the arms and change the script "Pirates" to a "P" on the left breast and you have one perfect Pirates alternate.

Fixed that for you.

I agree. Vests, IMO, should be either white or gray. Everything else is like WTF???

Sodboy, put a little space between the white border and the yellow numbers (and add sleeves) and it's a winner.

Perhaps a white cap?

Then bring back an alternate version of the gray cap (with some red thrown in) if they ever wore the red vest on the road?

An entire page and a half of Pirates pictures on Yahoo is really just pictures of Barry Bonds. I think THREE of the pictures actually have a pirate in them...

I don't know whats worse....

The ugly ketchup red and gold monstocities

OR

The "allegedly non Growth Hormone induced" bloated head of Senor Bonds

I'll get back to you on this one
