The season is almost over, and all of the media is (rightfully) focused in on David Wright.
Being the uniform guy, however, I received to questions today about the state of the Mets looks, specifically the orange uniform, so I figured I would take a pause from regular programing and talk about it.
In 2013 and 2014, the Mets “Los Mets” uniform was in Mets orange with Blue lettering, and frankly it looked awesome. However, the Mets decided to retire the Fiesta Latina promotion, and the Los Mets Orange went into storage.
So here’s the question: Should the Mets make an Orange jersey for next year’s uniform set?
Well, to be honest, I’m intrigued.
I think that the Mets have enough uniforms, to be honest. I wasn’t a fan of when we had five uniforms (or six, looking at you, 2014). And, I think that having an odd number of uniforms, is, well, odd. The jersey would probably only be restricted to home games, and it would diminish the amount of times the blue uniforms would be worn.
I would like it if it was worn on Sundays, but I’d kind of prefer to see the blue’s become the Sunday specials.
So, no, readers. I don’t want an Orange uniform right now, but in the future, I think the Orange has a place in the Mets set.
