Randy, do you like the jackets? They look good, but I'm really disappointed that they're not red with black accents rather than the other way around. With the new emphasis on red, why did they go with black jackets again? I also noticed that the winter caps they were wearing in the dugout tonight were black, as well.
Yeah, macro, I wish they would scrap the red caps with the black bills. The reds have never worn two different batting helmets so it will be interesting to see if they put out the cash to have a second set with black bills. Personally, I hope they don't.
I don't like the jackets. Primary color needs to be red. They look to be the same exact jackets from last season and I'm a little puzzled by that. I haven't looked closely, but the "tell-tale" would be, "Is the Running Man patch still on the sleeve of the jacket?" "Have they added the Old Red patch or did they just remove the Running Man patch?" Should be able to tell today as plenty of players should have on their jackets, with the exception of Bronson Arroyo, of course.
For the last few years, the jackets have changed styles with the arrival of a new season. Not like MLB to pass up on an opportunity to get in people's pockets to sell a new item.
