Astros Uniforms As Dated As Space Shuttle

Like the Astros’ new threads?

I posed the same question on Twitter and most of the responses were largely approving of the new uniforms. I like’em too, but I wish I loved them.

It’s so baseball the Astros stuck with tradition in favor of trying something new, something modern, something original.

I hate to rag on the downtrodden Stros’. But I get frustrated with baseball choking on old traditions. New ballparks built to look like old ballparks, and new uniforms that are essentially old uniforms.

Wasn’t the purpose of a uniform change to re-brand the Astros in preparation for its move from the National League to the American league? This looks like recycling, not re-branding.

Maybe they’ll grow on me…tradition, I guess.

    I think people were secretly hoping that they’d go with those extremely lame, bright orange and mustard horizontal stripes.

    Talk about retro.

      Oh my gosh, can’t even imagine had that happened. Awful!

      The Astros definitely didn’t take a step back with its ‘new’ uniforms…but they didn’t exactly move its brand forward, either.
