MLB: The Best and Worst Uniforms/Logos

    In Major League Baseball, there are some teams with brilliant logo designs and bright, flashy jerseys. Those are the teams I love to watch play everyday. The teams I can't stand are the ones with dull, boring colors and an unoriginal logos. I've selected my top 5 and my bottom 5 of each category.

The Worst. No. 5—Colorado Rockies' Pinstripes

    Sorry Rockies, but there's only one team that can successfully pull off the full-body pinstripe look. They play in New York. These are just boring. 

    My Suggestion: How about a white jersey and some grey pants?

The Best. No. 5—Royal Blues

    Recently, the Royals brought back the Powder Blues from back in the day. Maybe if they had some pitching, they could play like the Royals of old. 

The Worst. No. 4—Mariners

    Wow, navy blue and grey. How Original. I miss the bright blue and yellow that Griffey Sr. used to wear.

    Suggestion: More Blue. More Green. Less Grey.  

The Best. No. 4—Giant Orange

    In 2010, the Giants started wearing bright orange jerseys every Friday night. I think they should wear them every day.

The Worst. No. 3—the New Jays

    I miss the good ol' days when Joe Carter leaped around the bases with the classic blue jay on the front of his jersey. I don't like this new "futuristic" look that has recently taken over Toronto.

    Suggestion: Bring back the old bird and the bright blue.

The Best. No. 3—Rockies Purple

    All that purple is making Jamarcus Russel's mouth water. As for me, I couldn't love it more. One of the brightest and best uniforms in all of sports. And yes, I did just drop a Jamarcus on Codeine reference in my baseball article. 

The Worst. No. 2—Milwaukee Brewers

    Why did the Brewers get rid of the classic blue jerseys with the mitt-shaped "MB" and the ball inside? The world may never know. That was (SPOILER ALERT!), without a doubt, one of the greatest uniforms in the history of sports.

    Suggestion: I think we can all answer this one.  

The Best. No. 2—the Brewers Throwbacks

    Whoever designed this logo is literally a genius. The bright blue and yellow look awesome on the white pinstripes. 

The Worst. No. 1—the Padres

    I would have loved to have been at the meeting where the Padres agreed on these uniforms. Here is my interpretation of what happened:

    Man No. 1: Hey, lets pick the two most boring colors possible and wear them on our uniforms.

    Man No. 2: How about dark blue and tan

    Man No. 1: It's perfect! Now all we need are some terrible players to wear them so we can lose a whole bunch of games!

    Suggestion: How about those blue and orange jerseys Ken Camenetti used to wear? Those were cool. 

The Best. No. 1—A's Yellow

    This year, the A's brought back the classic "Swingin' A's" look that everybody loved so very much in the 70s. The new-look A's lineup in their new look uniforms could surprise a lot of people this season.
