I like it! Now if they could just get Brooks, Frank, Boog, Palmer, Cuellar, and Dave McLucky back. (I always called McNally "McLucky")

I like the cartoon bird, but the hats with the white panel on the front just seem to be too 70's cheesy to me. It just evokes too many bad memories of the awful foam + mesh hats that we'd wear in little league.

I wish there was a like button to click. This is a big improvement for them.

I'm not real fond of the white panel caps. The road cap is great!

That link to the Examiner site sent me on a spiralling trip to pop-up ad purgatory.

Ad-block plus for firefox is my best friend. I never run into such issues.

I was always more of a fan of the ornithologically correct Baltimore Oriole cap.

But the cartoon version was pretty funny perched on Earl Weaver's head.

Very nice. I join the chorus of those that dislike the white panel caps but everything else is looking good.

You know it is a slow start to the off season when we have so many threads about other teams changing their uniforms.

Those "new" uni's qualify as throwbacks!

Me too. But of the cartoon versions, I agree that the road version looks a lot better than the white panel ones

I'm all for throwbacks, but I did rather like the Orioles caps the way they were. Still I won't complain.
