Solid Gold

As a longtime critic of the Mets’ questionable senses of fashion and self-awareness I feel obligated to tip my (blue-and-orange only) cap to what appears so far to be a thoughtful and tasteful approach to the team’s 50th anniversary as revealed yesterday. Uni fans know the info by now I’m sure, but they’re dropping the black drop shadows and black hats for 2012 (hopefully the butt-ugly two-toned batting helmets go along with them, as I’ve long felt nothing looks any worse). They said they’d use the black alternate jerseys for selected away games only; and introduced a series of events dedicated to acknowledging team history including a return ofBanner Day, decade-themed bobblehead giveaways, and the anniversary patch/logo pictured above. Let’s Go Mets.

    Nick Evans signed with the Pirates. Better dust off the old 6.

    Hallelujah! The black shadow is being removed. It was one of the worst uniform alterations ever, and it made me sick to look at it. The black cap is gone? Terrific. Now get rid of the black jerseys! They say that “You root for the uniform: well, in the last decade we’ve had to root for clowns’ uniforms!”
