The Rangers unveiled their 2009 uniforms today. They are bringing back the red. Some fans will shriek with delight at this development. I feel more like Todd Zeile on his 2000 MLB Showdown card. Todd looks like he is trying to shrink right out of card number 446. Who can blame him really?
Let's face it, the man played for the Cardinals at one point in his career. Now there is a team meant to wear red. St. Louis does their red uniforms and does them well. The Angels don't look too shabby in red. Of course the Red Sox can pull it off. Occasionally other teams try it and they end up looking like the Rangers do when they get too much red, strange and out of place. (White Sox anyone?)
I know, I know, there are some out there who will loudly declare their nostalgia for the red uniforms. They claim that red will bring back the days of winning the division. The only time the Rangers have won their division they were wearing red. Of course, pitching might have had a little to do with that success as well. As for me, if I wanted to root for a team wearing red I would take a look at the Nationals.
What are your thoughts? Good move? Bad move? Do you even care?
