Whoa, you're not allowed to complain about something that much unless it has to do with the Marlins. You know the rules...I'm not convinced these are an upgrade which means they might actually be a downgrade.
The Rangers script is weak and out of place. That powder uniform sucks and the cap is horrible. Not impressed overall.
It was meant to be an update for the move into the new ballpark but it feels like they did too much. They were just a few easy changes away from getting it right... put Rangers back on the home whites, improve the sleeve piping (they got this one right), and stay away from powder blue.I do not like this set one bit. Looks like a change just to make a change.
At some point in the 70's, just to be different and colorful, powder blue became an option as a base for road uniforms instead of the more traditional gray. While most of the powder blue uniforms were garish and eventually they were all eliminated, a lot of fond memories came in those uniforms so eventually a few teams dabbled with bringing them back as throwbacks throughout the years (and that was fine). But suddenly it's become trendy (like a millennial hipster fad) to have powder blue as a regular jersey option.I really don't understand the powder blue look at all.
Powder blue went from being "wouldn't it be fun to bring these back?" to "god dammit, everyone is trotting these out and we've ruined another fun thing because of course we did."
And who's to blame? All of you stupid bastards out there who bought the Christ out of anything and everything powder blue.
