The Pondering 10 - Favorite MLB Uniforms

Unlike most sports, baseball uniforms carry a lot of tradition and history. It's rare that you see baseball teams deviate away from the history of a club, and if they do, it's usually an ownership change. For the most part, in baseball, the uniforms are sacred. Because of that, Major League Baseball has many teams with uniforms that are very, very significant, and also, very stylish. As we did for the NFL (Pondering 10 - Favorite NFL Uniforms), the following Pondering 10 will take a look at my favorite MLB uniforms.


10. Mariners - Seattle has awesome colors, which are also used by it's other pro teams in the Seahawks and Sounders. The Mariners are no different than the Seahawks who also made my NFL list with really stylish uniforms. Especially the alternate teal tops which in my opinion are really cool.


9. Rangers - I've always loved the Ranger's unifroms. The usage of Red, white, and blue really embodies the spirit of Texas and the state flag, and also gives the team a unique look, as it can have uniforms with either red as the dominant color or blue as the dominant color. P.S. the font really makes the jersey. We'll see that a few times to come. 


8. Reds - America's oldest baseball team has a very simple old school look. Much better now that they've dropped the black outlining in their uni's and those awful sleeveless tops.


7. Tigers - Gotta love uniforms that have the same style hat, with different colored embroidment for home and away (Home white, and orange away). Detroit's home uniforms with the Old-English D with the solid whites are as classic and as old-school as it gets. And the road jerseys definitely have a more modern look that still camptures the "Tigers" mascot.


6. Mets - I'm a huge fan of the Met's uniforms. Unfortunately, the organization get's in it's own way with way too much experimentation. Adding black. Different color jerseys. Different color combination jerseys. It's just too much. When the Mets go with the classic pinstripes and the blue and orange caps, it's one of the game's best.


5. Royals - C'mon, the usage of blue and powder blue is awesome!


4. Dodgers - The Dodgers uniform is iconic. And who else can pull off the random red numbers like the Dodgers?


3. Cardinals - With a twist on their uniforms, the Cardinals 2013 jerseys are an updated look on their historic patter. The two birds on the bat along with the now new "St.Louis" across the chest on an off-white jersey has a very vintage feel and is very, very, cool.


2. Blue Jays - Absolutely love the move back to these jerseys, which are just awesome. The font is super cool, and the sheer simplicity of it really makes it among the best in baseball.


1. Yankees - There are very few jerseys in sports that mean as much as this one. The road grays are classic, and the home pinstripes are legendary. We all dream to wear it. What else can you say?

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 10/14/18

3 Up

1. Mobilized Voters - Mid-term elections are upon us, and it's been quite interesting to see so many people mobilized (and motivated) to vote. For me personally, I haven't experienced this kind of push, regardless of your political views, since 2008. Unfortunately, with that ambition, comes more voter suppression - ugh.

2. Elon Musk - Kudos to Musk who donated $480,000 to Flint Schools in order provide clean water. Despite this awesome generosity, two things: 1) Did it really take only 480K to provide clean water? How infuriating is that?! And, 2) At ONLY 480K, isn't clean water for Flint easier than the continuing negligence we are seeing?

3. Paul Lopez - The first black for F-22 Demonstration Team is quite the accomplishment. And honestly, the fact that being the "first black person" is still available in specific categories in life, just shows how far we have to go as a nation.

Kavanaugh Confirmed - Not Shocked At All

I'm not shocked at all that Brett Kavanaugh was sworn in as a Supreme Court Justice.

Not shocked in the least.

I wasn't exactly rooting for him to be removed, or even wishing for his entire career to be thrown down the hatch due to the recent state of events - that would be unwarranted and cruel. After all, one could argue that regardless of what happens moving forward, Brett Kavanaugh will always have everything - EVERYTHING - that happened in late 2018 hovering over his career.

However, what I find discomfort in, as many do - well, I guess depending on your party affiliation and/or strength of commitment to said party and overall belief - is the overwhelming reaction and outlook by Washington on the situation.

Some Hard Truth on End of 2018 Yankee Season

As the ball hit the back of Steve Pearce's glove, and the final out of the Yankees season came to an end, I found myself slumped on my couch with my son in tow next to me - dejected. Not irate, but flat out disappointed. It felt like conquering the Red Sox was goal #1 this season, with winning a World Series just behind it. I'll explain in a few...

Nonetheless, as goes the deal today in sports, I opened Twitter (huge mistake!) to find opinions, rants, and absurd raging remarks filled with the usual over-the-top hyperbole and dramatic perspectives on the Yankees season. Sometimes, I want to chalk it up to passion, pain, and the need to simply grieve the moment at hand, but as always, it was all pure lunacy.

Regardless of the immediate reactions and takes, I found myself in a sunken state, almost in a weird mode of reflection. For starters, here is something most Yankees fans don't want to say among the midst of their lashing out at Giancarlo Stanton, or their Fire Boone de…

2013 Bucket List - #26 Encourage a Guest Post - "Football: Dislike"

In a year where the DP has branched out to other sites, it's only natural that we have other contributors do so on this platform as well. As one of my goals for 2013, I wanted to have a guest blogger, and decided to go with my tag team partner (my wife for you DP newbies). See, she has an undying dislike for football, and I thought it would make for a good piece, would provide common ground for those that feel the same way, and of course, instant therapy for her problem with America's phenomenon. So without further adieu, here it is:
