    Badass uniforms, the Rays should adopt them full-time. Retro jerseys seem to be in vogue, what with the Jays going back to the throwback logo (throwing back to the logo?) as well, which, given the way I fetishize anachronism as an expression of yearning for never-existing simpler times, I really don’t mind at all.
