The O´Jays ?? .......Great, first you watch a terrible game where the Rays play like crap, then you get stabbed.

Terrible.
I know right ? I wish a hurricane would rip the roof off the trop, maybe some air and sunshine can bring the team some life.

I like kicking the Cubs as much as the next fellow (especially if said next fellow hails from the Badger State), but are we to excoriate all the teams that have offered blank caps for sale, or shall we pretend that it is a phenomenon invented on Chicago's north side?

We should indeed excoriate teams for the audacity to sell blank caps at full price, and we should particularly go hard on the Chicago Cubs, a team that rewrote the book on sports marketing but in the last five years has eaten half the book and used the other half to wipe its ass afterward. Everything this team has done under its current ownership/management elicits a top-of-the-lungs scream of "YOU SHOULD KNOW BETTER," and I'm tired of it.

Easily the best thing I have read on this forum.

I'm right there with you admiral, but the Sunday throwbacks have drawn me in. Particularly that 1937 from a few weeks back. I could take or leave last week's, and the upcoming 1953 is nothing special (other than the fact that it was the jersey they wore in their first throwback game in 2008 -- to celebrate WGN, which they will soon dump).

But the marketing juice all moved to the West Side.

So we get Clark the Cub.

LOL @ the Cubs for selling this hat..

pMLB2-18231262dt.jpg

Chicago Cubs Authentic Collection 1914 & 1929 Turn Back The Clock On-Field 59FIFTY Game Cap

How many of these do you think they've sold?

Over or Under: 1,000.

It has to be way under right?

I was at the Cubs team store at Water Tower Place today. Said they're moving like molasses. All of them on the floor also had dirt on them for some reason.

Lids didn't even get them. Both stores had the other two throwback hats.

I could easily have a new Expos hat made from this...

Take the Cubs throwbacks last night, update the sleeve patch, put the names in the back and they instantly have one of the top road uniforms in all of baseball. That easy.

Phillies looking great today. I don't mind the team's current look, but the 64 throwbacks are superior in every way besides the lack of shoulder number or blue stars. If only the Cubs were throwing back as well...

Glad Jimmy didn't break the record today though, mismatch of eras there (I'm already mildly disappointed he did them in the alts instead of the home unis he's worn his whole career)

With the Rockies having worn their sleeveless black jerseys all three games in this last series (which was very painful to watch in the late innings), it had me wondering if any other teams still have sleeveless jerseys in their regular uniform rotation.

No, the vests have been completely out as alts for two years I believe until the Rockies brought theirs back.

Because of post like this, is there a way to not show single individuals post? There are a few I would rather not have to view constantly. I love this site other than this type of thing. Thanks!

You can ignore posts from individual posters, yes. You can still see that they've posted in a thread and it gives you a prompt that you can click on if you decide to read their post.

I've ignored a few halfwits and egomaniacs over the years but I usually end up reading their posts anyways.

And as a halfwit and an egomaniac, I thank you for it!

Please tell me how... I have a giant list ready to go.
