Home Pinstripes or Alternate Blues?
As some of you might know from Twitter, I’m an avid fan of Mets uniforms, and there have been plenty of oddities over the years.
However, it’s safe to say that I like the Mets current uniform lineup. The home and road primary jerseys are fantastic, and the blues are a nice touch, especially considering how infrequently they are worn (if they were shoved down our throat every day, I probably wouldn’t like them as much).
Well, after a weekend of wearing the pinstripes against the Dodgers (and getting swept in them) it wasn’t the craziest sight to see the blue uniforms in the locker room before game time.
This continued into the warmups and even the pregame press conference where Mickey is clearly seen wearing the home alternate cap:
I then went to the ballpark, got in my seats, and saw them take the field in their white pinstripes, which Dom modeled for the Mets twitter account:
I’m not upset about this, at all. The pinstripes are a fantastic, clean look, but why change the uniform minutes before game time? Did Lugo decide to make a last minute switch, or did they not have a blue jersey for the new reliever?
