The Texas Texases need stop having two primary colors. They need to pick red, or preferably pick blue, but stop mismatching hats/helmets/lettering/socks. And stop having their stadium look like their state and national flag.

Yeah, today's matchup was a bit hideous to look at.

When it's blue on blue, it's okay. Red on red, uhhh just not good.

The fact that all three of these exist probably isn't a good thing:

I really hope these are just fashion caps. It will look so stupid otherwise...

Sadly, this is real. At the Modell's Sporting Goods I work at, we are selling the Nationals home hats. The Postseason "patch" on the side is more of a glued on felt type of patch. Selling at $38.99 too. I am sorry...I am not buying it. The only one I'd buy is if it had a World Series patch on it and that's about it.

This smells of the ASG "signed" patches. Probably won't last too long. At least I hope not.

This may be an unpopular opinion, but I disagree. Go all royal blue and it might be too-Cubs, Dodgers, Royals. Not exact, but a step closer. Go all-red, and it's way too Angels because of the font similarities, not to mention some of the other red teams.

They have managed to be both blue and red, which is an identity in itself. I even like the red caps, socks and helmets with the home jersey (blue lettering). In fact that might be my favorite of theirs, since it's theirs alone. At one point not long ago, every navy and red team used red lettering with blue trim, until the Twins and Indians went the opposite.

And the Rangers ownership has absolutely draped themselves and their stadium in the Texas flag, so I'm sure they'd take your last sentence as a compliment. Perhaps they could even take a cue from college football and get their mismatched fans in order section-by section and make an actual Texas flag in the stands.
