So, to honor the military, the San Diego Padres wore camoflauge jerseys yesterday. My God, how stupid!! They were f-ugly!

I'm all for acknowledging the achievements and sacrifices of our men and women in uniform, but not at the expense of defacing the simple elegance of a baseball uniform.

This B.S. of alternate uniforms, "throw-back" uniforms, futuristic uniforms must stop. This is one of the reasons I'm so passionate about the Yankees. They've kept the same simple uniform for 80 years with none of this marketing department driven gimmickey nonsense!

I'm with you on this one Yankees Empire, the new Padres unis are ugly. I served my country honorably in the US Navy, but I'll be d@mned if I want to see dress blues being worn on the ballfield!

Someone with a lousy idea and too much influence...

Post an image of the uniforms!! They sound hideous, along with the all white White Sox throwback unis that made David Wells look like the Great White Whale.

I guess they did it since the Navy and the USMC are big in that area ,although the cammys where a bit too much. They kind of looked like a softball team or hunters who had their rifles taken awayor something.

I miss those White Sox SHORT PANTS from back in 1976. Hilarious, and embarrassing.

Oh man, that is embarrassing!

Thank G-d the Yanks don't do stuff like that!

Maybe they should've worn Zimmer batting helmets to complete the ensemble!

Can someone post a pic of the all white uniforms that Wells was in the other day? I missed it.
