    Here's an all-time classic.

    Oh, man, I loved that Expos cap! Seriously!

    I also loved this one from the Padres (well, actually the one before this, before they added the orange outline stripe and orange airholes)...


    ...and this one is my all-time favorite...

    Others I really liked:

    If you'll notice, every one of those caps has two things in common: 1) they're from the mid-70s when I first started following baseball, collecting cards, and studying and admiring the uniforms, caps, and helmets of the teams and 2) they're colorful. I'm very much a traditionalist when it comes to baseball uniforms. I don't like alternate jerseys and the proliferation of black, for example. But I really loved the bright colors of the 70s.

    Yes, some teams went way overboard (Padres, Pirates, Astros, Indians Bloody Mary, etc.), but the earlier versions of these teams uniforms (early 70s, before they went wild) looked very nice. There's WAY too much black and navy in the game today. It's good to see some teams starting to go the other way and introduce bright colors once again.

    Have you noticed the Orioles uniforms lately? They've switched from black lettering to orange, and wear the orange-billed caps much more often than they used to. (Now, if they'd just go ahead and paint the orange bill on their helmets and make that the primary...) And the Red Sox have brought red back to their uniforms in a big way, replacing all the navy. As I mentioned before, the Royals are dumping their black next year in favor of golden yellow trim to go with their royal blue.

    Color is good, as long as it's done properly, and that means within the confines of an all-white or all-gray uniform.

    Help stamp out, eliminate, and do away with redundancy.

    We each have our little area of interests, and one of mine is uniforms, and more importantly, baseball caps. Here's one of the new Reds hats not shown at the Redsfest fashion show. This is the new batting practice cap, and that silly black splotch on the side is part of the new template from New Era for all MLB's BP hats, and count me among those who don't quite like it.

    Now, I know, this is kind of odd, but I actually like the BP hats as a concept. I like the material and the fit. I have a couple and they do breathe better and I usually wear one for my softball games. In fact, I have one in my softball bag right now. I'm going to be interested to see how his new 3930 model feels, but I can't support the silly side panel thing. Even the Yankees have one, and they've been the one team that's resisted messing with any of their caps.

    That said, I'm also not a big fan of the red C. I would prefer it to just be white -- when in doubt, especially in baseball and college football, always go traditional.

    Here are all the caps. I think it should tell you something when the only one that doesn't look odd and out of place is the Devil Rays. (Actually, the Red Sox blue hat and the Angels did it right, too)

    It was Rico Carty or Ralph Garr.

    Put me down for a "ugh" on the Reds BP cap.

    I prefer the Reds black cap with red bill.

    I think tradition is nice, but it's preferable to break from tradition once in a while.

    Red cap, red bill, white C. The end.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Amen.

    That BP cap is ugly, by the way.
