There is no sugar coating it, Major League Baseball on television is boring. Actually attending a ballgame is not that much more exciting except for a few of us out there, I am one of them. I love baseball. I do, however, think there needs to be a few changes to improve the overall viewer-ship of the sport and the most obvious is the uniforms. If the world claims baseball is boring, than why would you use an outdated, lame uniform? Why not upgrade? So let’s check out a few teams in need of some changes.
The Minnesota Twins are a good baseball team and have been for many years now. (Although they suck pretty bad this year) The Twins uniforms, however, are on a different course. Those ugly things have stayed the same since I can remember. When is it time to move on? They have a new stadium and now need a new look. Just go ahead and add a twist to an overly dull uni that no one enjoys watching.
Kansas City Royals
Is it just me or have the Kansas City Royals always looked the same? Is there some kind of appeal to the city? What is the reasoning for keeping such an outdated look? I understand that having a Royal as the mascot can be a difficult thing to capture on a uniform. For that matter, what is a Royal? On second thought, maybe they should change it all, including the mascot.
Do you remember when they had those ugly purple jerseys? What about the black and teal ones? This is a team that has only been around since 1998 and yet they have already changed their look more times than the Yankees and Red Sox combined. If it ain’t broke don’t fix it. If it is broke, toss it out and try again. Yes, I am speaking to you Arizona.
I hope the hatred for the Milwaukee Brewers uniforms has nothing to do with my love for the Houston Astros, one of their biggest division rivals. But after I did some more research and noticed that they went from one extreme to another, I determined that the uniform does suck. It makes a college physics professor seem interesting.
Toronto Blue Jays
Having a Blue Jay as a mascot is already a step in the wrong direction. If you want to be taken seriously in this world, you might want to remove the word “Jays” from the uniform and include a darker look that shows off a Blue Jay doing something hardcore. And by hardcore I am talking about a Blue Jay eating another bird or something. That would be worthy of removal from this list.
I wanted to be nice and not say anything negative about the Washington Nationals but then I realized how terrible the new look is and has been since they left Montreal. It is not like the word Expos was something to be proud of but trying to use our Patriotism to find a fan base, well, that is both smart and dumb at the same time.
