I would say that those guys certainly know their unis and are spot on in general.

I was surprised not to see a bit more widespread love for the Tigers and Dodgers unis, though.

What they failed to mention as they kowtowed before the NY pinstripe altar is that not every player looks good in those pinstripes. Winfield looked stylish and regal. Sabathia looks like Winnie the Pooh in pajamas.

All the way throughout their history, the Astros have dominated in the ugly uniform category. They always look like they are wearing uniforms made from a 1962 Holiday Inn bed spread.

Oh, I love this.

Hey, let's not forget that the pinstripes' slenderizing effect was also completely inadequate to make David Wells look like anything but a fat slob. He made Sabathia look lean and mean.

(also, my vote for best looker in the pinstripes? Mo. Hands down.)

For Greg Dulli, hometown Cincinnati boy, not to give a shout out to Kluz's Reds and the chopped sleeves was just sad. Who else you gonna get to give Cincy some love?

Hard to disagree, but Bernie rocked 'em pretty well, too.

I don't think I could ever take fashion advice from Greg Dulli. My childhood was perma-scarred when I found this in our high school radio station:

Gotta be somebody who wears the high socks and doesn't look like an unmade bed.

to me, any show of stocking is a good thing. Guys don't have to go totally Thome.

Funny thing, though. Manny looked foolish in a Sox uniform, but I thought he looked noticeably better in a Dodgers uni. Have no idea why. Probably because at that point, he was someone else's problem.
