They look more like disguises than uniforms. Actually they are ugly as hell. Back to basics please.

This all seems like make-work for the marketing department.  

What are we going to do today to market the Mets?  I know, let's come out with another new uniform!!!  I trust Jeff is having fun with this.

I really wish teams would do away with the gray road unis. Never been a fan of them. Rather see the Mets wear the blue unis on the road all the time.

this is a money grab approach. cheapen the uniform by diluting it with a ton of them, so that maybe some suckers purchase them and hep line the wilpon's wallets. the classier teams - cardinals, sox, yanks, don't cheapen heir product like this.

OK. One more time. The New York Metropolitans uniform for home games is Orange & Blue hat over blue pinstripes. The road uni is Orange & Blue hat over gray unis with New York spelled out in Orange & Blue Old Time font. Worked for Casey, works for Collins.

My favorites right now are the orange Los Mets jerseys.  Back in the 80s, the Orioles would wear orange jerseys to stop losing streaks.

It's ironic how the Blacks are still technically in Circlulation

It's the guys wearing the jerseys that is the problem.

Just too many uniforms right now. The Mets should stick to their off white uniforms for home games and grey uniforms for road games. that's it.

Look around the league and most teams have some kind of alternative jerseys.  The Mets seem to have more combinations, but thats's because we seem them every day.

I'm just thrilled the ditched the black uniforms!  Although, I also like the all white with blue piping in addition to the pinstripes and road grey's.

I didn't mind the camo's, but I did  like when they had the black unis

There should be only two uniforms.  The creme pinstripe home unis and the all-grey away.  That's it.  All this other stuff is garbage (except the Jackie Robinson unis, but that's only the number that gets changed).

I'm not a fan of the camo jerseys. I like that we're honoring the military, the other discounts and freebies for military members on those days are a great idea, I'm just not digging the jerseys.

Can't really blame them for the Jackie Robinson Day uni.  And please, no more camo...or at least don't have a blue Mets logo with an orange boarder, was this designed by blind people??

@metsblog More uniforms, more opportunities for $$. Sad. Such a great color combo and iconic logo. Just use the pinstripes and grays.

@wilpondscmWell, the Yankees have a grooming policy that still holds since the Steinbrenner acquisition in '73 -- so there's nothing new there. The Sox just re-established their red lettering grey away uniforms after wearing the grey away uniforms with the black lettering for about four years. So counting the black lettering grey uniforms from last year and the red and navy blue alternates, white unis and new grey aways this season that's five uniforms in two years. The Cardinals have a third jersey and camouflage uniforms as well as the Sox. Because the Mets established new uniforms they're not classy?

@wingo43 I actually really like the blue. I gather from posts I've seen here and elsewhere that I'm not alone in that feeling.

@wingo43  I totally concur but not with Robinson's. MLB acknowledged him years ago now. There's no need to put him up on the pedestal EVERY year. What about others? The first Hispanic? The first Oriental? Enough already.

@donsilsby @metsblog  I'm surprised no one else pointed this out. This provides more opportunities to sell different jerseys to the public.

@WoodsideNative @wingo43The annual Jackie celebration is to cover up that, during Selig's time as commissioner, the number of African-Americans on the field and in the stands is fast approaching zero.
