Re: Okay, an official uniform poll...
Well, now that we've seen the road unis, what do you guys think? I am thrilled by what I am seeing, and amazed at how much-improved both the Reds and Dbacks are. As I expected, the only flaw in the Reds' is the black bill on the cap - it sticks out like a sore thumb. But other than that, they are perfect.
Randy, you were right about the helmets. Given that they had worn black helmets on the road for the past few years, I assumed they would have a road set with the black bill this year. I'm kinda glad they didn't, because at least we get the solid red while the team is batting.
I'll say the same about these that I did about the home set: this is the best uniform the team has worn since 1971. In fact, put a solid red cap with these, and they could be the best of all time.
I also noticed Narron and a coach wearing the short-sleeved dugout pullovers, and they were red with black stripes, the opposite of the jackets they wore in Cincinnati. They look much better.
