The Mets go retro

One of the worst things the Mets ever did — and believe me, there’s a long list to choose from — was to go wacky with their uniforms in the past few years.  Those blue things from the 80s were bad enough, but the black caps and alternate jerseys they introduced a few years ago are more or less an abomination.  Less offensive are the solid home whites, but they’re still sub-optimal.  Their original uniforms — a mix of Yankee pinstripe, Dodger blue and Giants orange in honor of their New York Baseball forerunners — was always elegant and never in need of an upgrade.

Thankfully the Mets are bringing back the Seaver-era classics next season, at least as an alternate, retro thing.  Here’s hoping that they go 10-0 or whatever in the new duds and make the change permanent.

If you look like a winner you’ll play like a winner, right? I mean, the Astros and Rockies have never won a World Series, have they?
