The Players Really Like The Blue “Los Mets” Jerseys
Yesterday was Hispanic Heritage night at Citi Field which means those snazzy Blue and Orange “Los Mets” jerseys were worn once again.
The first time these uniforms surfaced back in early August, the astounding amount of positive feedback toward them raised the question of whether the Blue and Orange jerseys should replace the current Black alternates.
Last night, I caught up with several Mets players to ask them whether they preferred the Blue and Orange uniforms or the alternate Black jersey. The response was overwhelmingly in favor of the Los Mets Blue over the current alternate Black:
“I think we all like the Blue ‘Los Mets’ jerseys. We would like them to become a main part, you know just say ‘Mets’ instead of ‘Los Mets’ but definitely the Blue ‘Los Mets’ jerseys we like a lot.” – Dillon Gee
“I really like the Blue and Orange ‘Los Mets’ jerseys, it’s a great look. I think we should stick with Blue and Orange.” – Mike Nickeas
“I am going to go with the Blue ‘Los Mets’. I think it’s pretty much a consensus in there (the clubhouse) that we like the look of those jerseys.” – Chris Capuano
In fact, the only Met I spoke to who chose the Black alternates was Bobby Parnell saying:
”We don’t wear the ‘Los Mets’ jerseys much but we do win in the Black ones so I would have to say the Black jerseys.”
I personally am a fan of the “Los Mets” jerseys and I would really like to see them implemented in the near future as part of the regular uniform rotation. As my colleague Kelly Horn posted in back mid-August, the Mets are considering incorporating the Blue and Orange jerseys for the 2013 season, and I can’t wait to see more of these Uni’s again in Flushing.
COMING SOON TO A 2013 METS SEASON NEAR YOU!
