They're thought of primarily as a blue team with some orange trim, not really an "orange and blue" team (IMO).

Well, the lyric in "Meet the Mets" says that the fans are true to the orange and blue, but that's just because nothing rhymes with orange.

Syringe and (door) hinge are two words that rhyme with orange. Of course those aren't words that are easy to get into a baseball song!

Syringe would be easy to incorporate. Just make some reference to steroids.

on shop.mlb the Mets Home, Home Alt and Away are on Sale. but not the Black Alt. I know they said they are going to keep it around since they went to the World Series in them

What a terrible reason to keep a terrible jersey...

...especially since the Mets have been a punchline more recently in them.

Blue alternate at home, orange alternate on the road, script New York on the regular roads, no black. Replace the two black hats with a blue crown/orange brim one. It shouldn't be so hard, Mets.

That's the first time I've heard of a darker jersey proposed for home and a lighter jersey proposed for the road. Doesn't really make much sense for them to have an orange jersey. They're thought of primarily as a blue team with some orange trim, not really an "orange and blue" team (IMO).

Well, firstly, from the mockup earlier in the thread, we know the Mets are using the home "Mets" script on their blue alternate next year. That would suggest that they plan on using them at home. Secondly, the Mets' blue and orange are both pretty bright. I don't think it makes much difference which color they use at home or away.

Brewers are officially coming out with a Gold alternate set to debut Sept. 10th.

Seems the players and fans really liked it. I think it went well with their home jerseys, although the mustard yellow doesn't really match their gold trim. Still looks good!

I really liked these when they wore the Cerverceros jersey earlier this year. Glad they were well-received by everyone and it looks like they'll become a full-time alt soon.

Haha "orange" does not rhyme with "syringe" in either my midwestern accent or a Mets fan's New York accent, that does not count

Lids.com has the 9-11 caps up. The return of the flag patch cap as someone reported earlier

http://www.lids.com/MLB/Philadelphia-Phillies/20334560

And of course New Era is using their s**t low quality Chinese made stock for hats to celebrate an American holiday. Yay capitalism.

I wouldn't really consider it a "holiday". Maybe when companies start tying it in with blowout sales on office furniture or something.

Royals use the home script on both jerseys, as does the Mariners. Rockies use Colorado on both as well.

Their current black alt has the Mets script on it, and they wear it on the road. I can't think of another instance where a team had separate home and road alts and the road one was brighter. There is no universe in which their blue is considered as bright as their orange. I do like orange and gray, but it has to be a Browns-ish orange and a medium or darker gray. The Mets orange would clash with gray pants, and would be as bad as a team wearing a powder blue jersey with gray pants, as some have suggested for the Royals.

Now if they wanted to wear matching orange pants, I'd be on board with that.

D'oh! I thought they still wore these on the road occasionally:

Pretty sure those were retired, though IMO they were far and away superior to the home (now full-time) version.

Agreed. While I generally don't like that scipt nor do I like the Mets in black, I think put together this was actually a pretty cool looking jersey.

Can't say I agree with you two there - that Mets jersey is a mashup of the two most loathsome elements of their current look: the black, and the ugly Red Sox ripoff road script.

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: )

Nope. Modifications to current jerseys.

Never mind, the blue alts are coming in 2013.

The Marlins have started to use Marlins on all 3 sets this season as well

That started last season and was too de-Florida-ize in prep for the switch to Miami Marlins. Besides, we're referring to colored alts.

Angels wore their '70s throwbacks for the first time tonight.

Saw that! They were the '71 unis (regular belt).

The last season the Mets wore the 'New York' road ALT was 2008.

I still think the Angels would look better in navy, and last night's game only further reinforced that belief for me.
