The Red Sox Usher In New Threads Too…

I know this is an Oriole blog, but the Boston Red Sox — also known as the Evil Empire 1A — too unveiled new uniforms and a secondary cap that will become part of their stable for 2009.

Well, I only have one question: why?

As I told Ian from Sox and Dawgs yesterday, the old uniforms were fine. Again, I think it’s an excuse to make people spend more money — especially in these economic times. The good thing is that the Red Sox not only have a strong (to put it mildly) following, but also they are a ‘brand’.

The new threads — especially the road ones — look, well … quaint.
