So much for the Mets not screwing up the jersey-sponsor patch opportunity. It’s enough to desecrate the uniform itself with advertising; but to do so in the wrong color is inexcusable. The “white space” in the patch represents the allowable sponsor real estate on the sleeve but clearly doesn’t help the design, it’s an eyesore through and through and a tragic moment in Met uniform history.
On the bright side it looks like Francisco Alvarez will be here for the home opener ad Omar Narvaez lasted a week till needing the injured list. And just in– Alvarez has been issued No. 4 and the 50 he wore late last year. I don’t want to overstate it but this season seems teetering on the edge of going way wrong already.
