MLB Logo&Uniform changes

Shame that it took a silly gimmick like that to get the Mets in a proper alternate.

Now all that needs to happen is for black to go away entirely and keep ONE blue alternate. They would be fine with zero black anywhere but apparently they do not see things the way we see them.

Change the "Los" to "New" and the "Mets" to "York" and you're cooking with gas.

Yeah, I was just about to say that this gives you an idea how well the 1987 New York script would work on a button-down jersey.

And courtesy of Mets Police, here's the front:

Very nice, I like it.

:notworthy::winner:

A possible basis of the new Mets alternate uniforms for the 2012 season? Maybe. But it sure does look nice than the current black alternates.

Hey, they used those "NY" ones in cream back in '09 to gauge interest in a cream for '10 and beyond, which they did with the pinstripe uniform change...I would flock to buy an authentic jersey if it's that w/o the "LOS".

Watch them wear the black hats and helmets with this jersey just to crush the dreams of everyone who has good taste.

At least the "Los" isn't up above and slightly to the left of "Mets" like some of the others have been. This looks much better where as previous designs looked like "Oh, yeah, Heritage Night! Throw a 'Los' on there somewhere."

Hopefully we are looking at the 2012 alternate. It seems odd for the mets to "drop" the shadow unless they are planning on dropping it in the future. :fingers crossed:

Wow, that blue Mets alt looks great. Let's hope it's the basis for their next alt. I'm not a huge anti-BFBS guy, but the Mets black just has to go. It doesn't look "cool" anymore, it just looks ugly and out of place. I still find it so weird that despite all of the red/white/blue in the MLB, there are only 3 teams in the MLB with a "regular blue" alternate. Regular blue has almost become an underused color somehow.

Why not "Nueva York."

That would look great in the '87 script.

It's okay. I don't feel like the Mets need more than white and grey. Solid blue is too much the domain of the Cubs, I suppose.

So the Twins were supposed to wear the M hats this weekend in honor of the 20th anniversary of the 1991 World Series champions. I'm at work but I got conformation that they are indeed wearing the M caps, but with the cream throwbacks still. Anyone got pics yet?

It looks janky. I know they're doing the creams to honor Killebrew, but if you're going to do the '91 thing, go all out. No name on the back, old script, old patches, old stirrups. Do it right.

I really, really hope this is a hint at what the Mets will be wearing next year. They look so much better than the terrible black alts.

Now just drop the dropshadow from all the jerseys, drop all black in the Mets' identity, use that as the basis for the new alternate jersey, and you have yourself a great identity, instead of the muddled, conflicted mess they have now.

Just caught highlights on Baseball Tonight and they look frickin fantastic. Even the BBTN crew were excited about them.

They got the thumbs up from Mets radio pbp guy/uniform traditionalist Howie Rose.

the Mets are that rare club with a lousy uniform set that could be fixed so very easily.

Drop all the black, make this the template for a blue alt, and instant success.
