Somebody Call BJ Birdy

Because the Jays are getting back to their roots. Next year the Jays will have a second “Home Alternate” uniform:


in addition to some other changes:

  • Change to road jersey lettering
  • Addition of sleeve patch to road jersey
  • Change to batting practice jersey lettering
  • Addition of alternate uniform (all-sky blue pullover jersey from the 80s)

As you can probably tell from the giant, gaudy banner, I just want to see the old classic logo from time to time instead of the current steel-grey, Tampa-Bay-ripoff garbage (incidentally, the Rays are undergoing a “Complete identity change including Club name and Club colors.” Yeah, that’ll get the fans back!!). Powder Blues were beyond my wildest dreams. I just pray that “alternate” means “every second day”, because those are amazing. I could probably hit a home run if the reward was trotting around the bases looking that fine…

  1. Shit! I think I may have just peed a little. That’s the best thing I’ve heard all week. Old logos, pullovers – holy crap. Is it possible that Brian Tallet’s stirrups and sideburns will make a comeback? Here’s an artist’s rendition:

  2. Are you tagging everything as “Barry Bonds” from now on?

  3. Barry Bonds? Who’s Barry Bonds? Oh, right, that guy whose first name is Barry and last name is Barry Bonds. I mean Bonds. Now I remember. Barry. Bonds. The guy who took steroids. Right. Why would I tag anything with “Barry Bonds?” Do people care about him??

    I wonder if I can moderate my own comments as spam.

  5. You know, I just noticed you seem to constantly refer to bladder problems in times of excitement. Are we really getting that old?? 🙂

    Barry Bonds.

  6. We are that old.

    And Barry Bonds is on steroids.

  7. What happens if Barry Bonds and Rick Ankiel take HGH and steroids?

    More hits.

  8. Makes you wonder if either of those two names will end up on this list:

    barry bonds!

  9. Wow. That’s amazing. The thing is though, that MLB has already sort of established a precedent for amnesty with Giambi. As long as they’re not currently taking anything, I don’t think a “big purge” is possible, let alone what they want. Maybe coaches and minor league dealers will get taken out, but that’s about it…
