I was directed to a web page this morning which was billed as the Indians unveiling “new uniforms for 2012.” This was the picture on that web page:
You tell me what’s different, because I’m sort of not seeing it. Based on this pic it appears as though the white piping around the neck and down the buttons of the blue one is gone. Same goes for the blue piping on the white jersey. That script, however, still dominates. I’ve never liked it. It looks like the writing you’d see on a generic shirt you’d find in the kids department at Marshall’s or something that says “Baseball.” Or “All Star.”
If I ran the Indians — and I see no reason why I shouldn’t — I’d issue a decree that from now until the end of time they’d wear these uniforms, but with the navy block C cap.
But, hey, maybe the Indians don’t want to look awesome all the time. Who am I to judge?
Red Sox southpaw David Price was lifted in the first inning of Saturday’s game against the Astros. While there was some initial concern that he might have trigged the elbow tendinitis that has been affecting him lately, manager Alex Cora was quick to clarify the situation as the result of “flu-like symptoms.”
Price pitched just 2/3 of an inning, inducing a first-pitch fly out from Aledmys Díaz, striking out Alex Bregman, and allowing a single to Michael Brantley before making his departure from the mound. He was replaced by rookie right-hander Colten Brewer.
Barring further complications, Price will likely stay on track to make his next scheduled start during the Red Sox’ upcoming road trip. Entering Saturday’s match-up, the 33-year-old lefty carried a 2-2 record in seven starts with a 3.29 ERA, 2.2 BB/9, and 10.1 SO/9 across 41 innings in 2019.
Following Price’s removal, the Red Sox are still tied 0-0 with the Astros in the fifth.
