The Best and Worst Uniforms of All Time: The Wrapup

14 Comments

I had a lot of fun running down the best and worst looks of all 30 teams.  If anyone can think of any other silly offseason time-killers, by all means, let me know.  In the meantime, at the request of many, what follows are links to all 30 of the uniform rundowns:

NATIONAL LEAGUE

Phillies, Braves, Marlins, Mets, Nationals/Expos (and bonus updated Nationals);

Reds, Cardinals, Brewers, Astros, Cubs, Pirates;

Giants, Padres, Rockies, Dodgers, Diamondbacks

AMERICAN LEAGUE

Rays, Yankees, Red Sox, Blue Jays, Orioles;

Twins, White Sox, Tigers, Indians, Royals;

Rangers, Athletics, Angels, Mariners

Only, like, 100 days to go until spring training.

There have been three walkoff grand slams in the past week

Last night Jason Kipnis led the Indians to victory over the Chicago White Sox via a walkoff grand slam. Such a beast is a pretty special, but lately they’ve been surprisingly common. Indeed, Kipnis’ walkoff slam was the third one in the space of a week.

Francisco Mejia of the Padres hit a walkoff salami on Sunday afternoon to lead San Diego over the Texas Rangers. Sal Perez of the Royals did the deed on Friday against the Twins.

As Anthony Castrovince of MLB.com tweeted this morning, there were only two walkoff grand slams in the entire 2016 season. Having three in a week is pretty darn cool, eh?
