The Mets unveil an alternate jersey and it is good

I’m not a big fan of the solid jersey + white or gray pants look, but the Mets unveiled a new alternate jersey today and I like it:

 

The Mets rocked solid dark blue tops back in the early 80s, so this is not unprecedented.  And it doesn’t have black, which is good.

MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand reports that there is some momentum in talks between the Mariners and free agent outfielder Jon Jay.

Jay, 32, hit .296/.374/.375 in 433 plate appearances with the Cubs last season, which is adequate. He’s heralded more for his defense and his ability to play all three outfield spots.

The Mariners are losing center fielder Jarrod Dyson to free agency and likely don’t want to rely on Guillermo Heredia next season, hence the interest in Jay. The free agent class for center fielders is otherwise relatively weak.
