What in the hell are the Arizona Diamondbacks wearing this season? Those unis with the graduated color on the shoulders, like someone was wearing the jersey while airbrushing a naked chick riding a dragon onto the side of his Chevy van? Yeesh.

This is the point where I should make a wisecrack about the shirts reading “Chico’s Bail Bonds” on the back, but at least the Bad News Bears were wearing legit baseball uniforms. Arizona may as well be playing jai alai in those butt-ugly things.

It’s bad enough that this sort of nonsense is vandalizing college football, not to mention the occasional pro game, but baseball? The sport where “throwback” uniforms first became a thing? Where classic style has always meant something, even if only in contrast to fashion violations of the 1970s? It’s enough to make a real baseball fan weep.
