Yuck. But the fact that they're going out there in blue is a good sign for next season being a blue and orange alt (right? right? :grin: )

I has been stated that the Mets will be using a blue alt on a limited basis next season, so you are in luck, however there were no announcements of an orange jersey.

I loved those blue jerseys when they first came out (2005 IIRC), if they have to use black then that's how to do it. Pair them with the proper hat and you have a winner. (Of course the "Los Mets" jerseys sans "Los" are preferable though.)

This is the first time the Mets have worn these in a game, right?

Yes, I'm pretty sure this was the first time.

Is Lukas in the hospital after this one? Someone should check on the guy and make sure he's okay.

The Mets made the correct cap decision for this jersey and I think it looked pretty good. Not as good as a totally blue/orange alternate with the blue cap would look, but for what they were working with they looked pretty good. The all-blue cap would have looked out of place with as much black as there is on the BP jersey. It may not be ideal, but I think this shows that a blue Mets alt jersey will look good.

I would have had the road hat on. I think the blue brim would have made it look a lil better

Yeah, personally they shoulda gone with the road hats and then they'd have one really sharp looking set. Even so it looks good, especially considering they're using a BP jersey

The road hat would have looked a little better, but those Mets jerseys looked fine, considering they were BP jerseys. It's always nice to see the Mets move towards blue.

The black hats looked really out of place on Willie Harris, who was wearing high blue socks.

Unbelievably, Lukas was actually at the game. He wrote about it yesterday. Needless to say, he didn't like it.

This is how it would have looked with the Road Hat. Resampled_2011-08-31_20-11-26_141.jpg

Same reason the guy in the camo vest is making his identical twin brothers sit in different rows.

@AdamRubinESPN "The #Mets will wear their new blue "Los Mets" jerseys tonight. It's the style, minus the Los, that should be officially in rotation in 2013."

It should be in the rotation next year. It can't be a regular alternate, but they could call a game "NY heritage night" or something dumb like that and wear it a handful of times next year, they just can't wear it as much as other teams wear alts, which is unlimited. Either way, it is great to finally see the Mets returning. All that remains of the black will be alt caps and jerseys next year, and those might be gone by 2013.

I heard/read they are going to change the home jerseys a lil next year because of the 50th anniversary
