SCOTT LITTLE AND HOW I'D LIKE THE NATIONALS TO DRESS
What say you?
Scroll down to the previous post for all you want to know about the Jose Vidro trade. It's just that -- inbetween semesters anyway -- I've got nothing else better to do than photo shop baseball uniforms.
Abandon Ship! Mariner Front Office Makes Awful, Awful Trade
"Three years ago, we all hoped for aging middle infielder Omar Vizquel to fail a physical so the M's wouldn't complete an agreed-upon deal for him. And our pleas were heard.
Well, M's fans, break out your prayers to the patron saint of aged middle infielders failing physicals again, because we need another favor from him. Pending a physical, the M's are going to deal two good young prospects, Chris Snelling and Emiliano Fruto, for the Nationals' Jose Vidro, a once-power hitting middle infielder who has suddenly hit for a lot less power since 2003 or so if you catch our meaning."
Twins? I was amazed at the physical similarities between current National Chris Booker and Emiliano Fruto, acquired in the Jose Vidro trade. If Fruto pitches as well as Booked did last year for the Nats, the team will be very happy with their bullpen twins.
Ever notice that most all the pictures of the Nats playing away make it look like they are wearing purple uni's.
Its the CURLY W cap that makes the jersey look strange at time. But, I love that Curly W Cap, too. and I know, for a fact, Management "LOVES" The Curly W
Despite all those comments, you can expect a change when the New Ballpark opens in 2008. Its the Opportunity for The Lerners to put their FINAL STAMP on the entire baseball operation, away from MLB Ownership. And, make a ton more money in merchandising.
Though I am "anti colored jerseys," the Nats red jersey with the "DC" hat is one of the sharpest uniforms going today.
Though the team ressurected the "curly W" for us (those of us old enough to remember the Senators), I still think it a wise choice to go with the interlocking 'DC' as the standard hat and the 'W' as the alternate.
I'd still keep the blue away uniform if they change the hew. I don't like that purple either.
If it comes to fruition, this uni would most likely be a surprise announcement at an upcoming WINTER CARAVAN in January.
I do agree that the "curly W" looks odd compared the print used on the shirt. I would prefer it if the team went to a script version of "Nationals" on the home uniform and of "Washington" on the road uniform, with a curly W incorporated into the spelling of the name on the shirt.
Speaking of honoring Washington baseball history, I'd love to see a game where the Nats wear the uniforms of the 1924 World Championship team. Maybe against the Mets or Giants who could wear the road uniforms of the team we beat in 1924 and lost to in 1933. But I'd only want them to wear that "throwback" for a special day. That team---great as it was---had to have one of the most boring uniforms of all time.
