My home town Jays! (if they were in the playoffs and the Yanks were not, I would root for them, but don't particularly care for them in the regular season).

Anyways, I actually quite like those jerseys :gulp:

Toronto is a pretty cool city.Great town for bars and bar bands.

Those uni's + Halladay = the only reason to pick the Jays in MVP Baseball.

Unfortunately they dont make the MVP games for MLB any more.

I still fire up the Xbox and play MVP 2005 every now and then.

MLB2k8 on the PS3 sucks really bad.

Those retro uni's aren't as bad as some of the stuff I've been seeing on TV these days. Those Philadelphia Eagles and NY Jets throw backs that were worn earlier this season were god awful. I never want to see those again.

Those are awesome- much better than the Royals powder blues.

Me too, except PS2. I can't stand the original XBox basketball sized controller and refuse to use it.

Like Buckner said, though, it's too bad EA can't make MLB games anymore. The MVP series are really the only baseball games I've ever liked, and I've played more than a few.

MVP 2005 was officially the perfect baseball game- except that lefties couldn't hit HR's against lefties.

I had 42 home runs with Trot Nixon (who the game thought was AWESOME) and none of them came against left-handed pitching. Ortiz had a couple, but that was it.

Strangely, the computer's lefties didn't have many problems taking Halama, Wells, and Embree deep.

What an idea. A BLUE Jays uniform with the color blue and not that crappy pewter/black look.

I feel like a teenager again, its nice that sine they are the "BlueJays" they actually have a blue uniform. I never understood the black uniforms? It looks like retro is in for 2008.

Forget the uni colors, I never understood why they changed their cap and logo. The Blue Jay in the baseball with the Canadian flag was very cool. That hybrid T/J thing they have now is awful.

And no way that powder blue uni was better than the Royal blue of KC.
