The Dbacks will have new uniforms next year — and maybe Matt Williams too!


Some Diamondbacks news this fine Friday morning:

Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports that the club has offered their third-base coach position to former Nationals manager Matt Williams. Williams, of course, has longstanding ties to the Diamondbacks. He was a member of the inaugural Dbacks club in 1998 and finished his playing career with Arizona in 2003, picking up a 2001 World Series ring along the way. He likewise coached, served as a broadcaster and was a minority owner/vague front office person for the Dbacks before going to Washington.

In other Dbacks news, Steve Gilbert of reports that today they will announced a uniform change. It won’t be radical — the colors and logos are staying the same — but the design will be refreshed. As long as there isn’t any purple, teal, pinstripes or vests I figure it’ll be cool. That brick red they use (or whatever they call that red) is pretty solid.
