I was under the impression...

...that the name was the Red Sox.

I mean, I understand the historic aspect, but shouldn't the socks actually be red. Brad Penny was rocking the navy ones vs. the Angels a few days ago.

EDIT: Can't find a picture just yet. But to me, it's just like the Yankees uniform. (And I know that these have been out since December, but these new uniforms just annoy me. They're not the Boston Navy Sox.)

Those are their new road alternates that they just got this year. Those were the first time they were worn in a game. Plus the White Sox wear Black Soxs all the time.

But the White Sox have always done that. Are these new Red Sox ones an alternate, or will they be the official away jersey? So far every game I've seen them play, they've been wearing the navy. Red just looks better...

The road jersey lettering was changed to navy this year, and I guess the socks were as well. The navy lettering is actually more in line with their historical uniform. They put "Boston" in red from 1973-78 and 1990-2008.

I don't think they've worn solid navy socks since 1907, though. They're probably best known for the red-white-blue stirrups.

I'm fine with the navy lettering, but it just seems odd to me that they'd take out the red socks. I mean, Boston Red Sox. Red socks. It just fits.

Bugs me...

    • I wonder if this guy could be a second pitching addition for us.   Seems like he might make a good long reliever/spot starter. https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2022/12/npbs-hanshin-tigers-post-shintaro-fujinami.html  
    • I wimped out and said 120-139.  I really want the answer to be 140-159.   But I’m guessing the cap will be right around 140 or just under.   One factor could be how many pitches Grayson is throwing to get through these innings.  In his pre-injury outings, he was cruising along at 14.9 pitches per inning.   Those are very low stress innings.  But if Grayson finds himself throwing 18 pitches per inning next year in the majors, that’s a different ballgame.  
    • A little short on job title, but as a grateful longtime reader from back in the day, noticed this in Szymborski's chat today. SEA is one of those teams gotta fight past for AL top 6 in the shorter term. 1:06 Josh R: Noticed this in a transactions list :                                      Mariners Named Dave Cameron senior director, player procurement,                                                 Is this the former FanGraphs Dave Cameron?     1:06  Dan Szymborski: Yes     1:06  Dan Szymborski: (Sorry, was making sure he made it official or I couldn’t say anything)     1:06  Dan Szymborski:     Dave Cameron @OneDaveCameron     I should probably mention this now that it’s official. I get to do some really cool stuff for the @Mariners going forward. Quite a journey from @ussmariner (or asbs-m for us extra old people) to now. I couldn’t be more excited. Sincere thank you to all.
    • It'll be a bad year if the team's competitive situation doesn't put Elias or whoever to a possibly tough decision here. "Controlling the competitive environment" only gets publicized as a virtue for teams doing the stuff of Elias' first four years.     Teams like the Dodgers and Astros earn that privilege with their excellence - these Orioles aren't there yet. Grayson should pitch the 3rd or 4th game of the year, and pitch as well as he can for 20-ish turns.    Then see where we are.     Maybe we trade him then for Burnes and Woodruff and Devin Williams, Milwaukee can let him rest up for next year.
    • Its certainly possible Gunnar's home is shortstop.     The Orioles aren't going to say openly if they have intellectual capital like the cumulative wear and tear of manning SS is known precisely enough it'd be an inefficient use of Gunnar's joints (Royce Lewis' have taken some bumps), and that's why he didn't get to have an everyday SS job in the minor leagues. But they have to play somebody in the major leagues regularly next season, so any developmental guardrails will have to be taken off.     MLB teams seldom platoon shortstops - for me they are like quarterbacks, if you have two, you have none. I'm still on the Occam's razor of shortstops play shortstop (watching you Jackson Holliday in 2023), and almost every pro caliber position player on their Little League, high school, and A-ball teams is the shortstop.   They can't all be Cal Ripken or Ozzie Smith even though the confidence helping them to the Show tells them they probably are. Holliday and Carter Young will probably be teammates for some of 2023 - could be like the Westburg and Gunnar show all over again.
