Step one to returning the Blue Jays back to glory?
Have them dress like champs.
They have FINALLY dumped the awful JAYS uniform that made them look like a Short Season Single A team.
They have gone back to the distinct and unique look of their glory years.
The Blue Jays have a cool identity. They are NOT a tradition laced team. They are a relatively new team and a foreign team. Why they would have run away from a cool look and feel is beyond me.
I have been advocating returning to the old look for a while now.
Then again, I ALSO said they should have rehired Cito Gaston and they did.
Maybe the Blue Jays should keep listening to me.
They look good. They have some talent and there is a new Wild Card team. Could be some fun times in Toronto.
If you are going to party like it is 1992 and 1993, then DRESS like it is 1992 or 1993!!!

Only thing I would have changed about the Brewers/Diamondbacks game

The Brewers and Diamondbacks finale had everything you could have ever wanted in a Division Series Game 5.

Great pitching. A fabulous highlight reel catch by Chris Young. A big homer by Justin Upton.
A game tying, series on the line safety squeeze. A series winning walk off hit by Tony Plush himself, Nyjer Morgan.

Awesome game.

One objection.
Why couldn’t the Brewers be wearing their old bad ass M-B hats for the game?

Isn’t Friday “Throwback Uniform” day?

Ah well.
I guess Brewers fans will have to be content with a thrilling 5 game victory and home field advantage in the NLCS.

I am loving the yellow A’s uniforms

NOW they are starting to look like the Oakland A’s again!
I always liked the solid yellow jerseys that said “A’s.”

And frankly I just like the name “A’s” better than “Athletics.” There’s something goofy about a team named after a letter and Athletic is such a vague term that I find myself siding with goofiness.

I like that it is a button down jersey with the piping and not the pull over shirt from the 70s.

I know this yellow jersey will be an alternate uniform. But like my love for the new Pirates jersey, I think they should wear it more often than not.

I hope they do the same thing with the green uniforms, like the one that Reggie looked so awesome wearing.

Outfit the A’s in the green jerseys with piping down the front and make that the permanent road jerseys.

How cool would they look?

And their regular home jerseys should be like the one Rickey Henderson wore during the 1980s. White jersey, piping, with “A’s” on the front.

It has a combination of class and color… which is always a good thing.

OK, enough fashion.

Back to baseball.
