It's one of the things we can look forward to. Now, if you're only 19, you have existed knowing only teal, that's too bad.
    It's also not the 80s anymore, so there goes the argument for the blue and yellow, using your logic.

    I don't think they would have switched up the regular uniform lettering if they were just going to make a full switch a year later.

    Really? Hm.

    It's not like it's the Seahawks' neon jerseys. I like them. And we only wear them once or twice a week. My dad isn't a fan either so maybe it's an old guy thing

    I'm glad they finally made some changes. Our navy jerseys suck and our jerseys are kind of boring. I think it's time to totally revamp them but that's just me. The Seahawks were lucky that they made cool ones. I don't want the M's jerseys to end up like the Bucs.

    I do know that I'm going against popular opinion when I say this: I looooove te sleeveless jerseys from the 90's. Maybe it's just from the pictures I see of Griffey dropping his bat after swatting a dinger in them. In fact, that's probably it.

    Bring back the sleeveless... Pretty soon we'll have one uni for each day of the week!

    Thursday marked the 15th anniversary of the Kingdome's implosion. We're still awaiting for the suits to bring back the USS Mariner ship and install in the landing in left-center field at Safeco.

    5th opening day without the greatest of all time, Dave Niehaus. It never gets easy.

    Ken Griffey Jr. hit his first career home run 26 years ago today, on his father's 39th birthday!

    Is Franklin Gutierrez a diva? I read that he refused to line up for player introductions during Tacoma's home opener.

    It sucked in 1994, it sucks now, it's embarrassing actually. While we are at it, the Mariners have awful uniforms. They tweaked the tired 1993 look and will debut the completely nonsensical cream Sunday alternates tomorrow. They had a chance to take the lead and blaze trails and set trends, to make the sport of baseball look good for the first time in over a generation, instead they opted for more of the same tired crap every other team does. Yawn. Between the Mariners' aesthetics and their bad start, it's a dark time for the Mariners franchise.

    A dark time because you don't like their jerseys priorities, huh?

    This is, on paper, the best team the Ms have had in like 10+ years. It's not a dark time at all. If 10 games and a color scheme are at the top of your list in terms of importance, maybe the game is baseball isn't for you.

    Well, today is the day we have been dreading since the announcement was made on January 23. I feel like the Mariners have set baseball back 60-70 years and it's not a good feeling. They simply combined the worst 2 eras in Mariners history (1987-92, 1993-2014) to make an alternate, and a cream one at that, we wanted something entirely different. It's a punch to the gut, no question about it.
