JimmyThe Phils unveiled their new alternate uniform today, which will be worn during home day games.

The unis were modeled by Jimmy Rollins, Cole Hamels and HOF member Robin Roberts.

A couple of thoughts on these photos:

  1. Jimmy Rollins knows how to work a runway. This should come as no surprise. Say what you will about Rollins’ work on the field, but he’s certainly among the most likeable players Philly has ever had.
  2. Cole Hamels looks silly wearing sneakers with his baseball jersey.
  3. The new uniforms are cool. I like them a lot. And since they are old school, I’m guessing Bill Conlin approves.

You can see more pics of the Phils’ new uniforms here and here.

  1. Dontrelle’s numbers may have declined over the last two seasons but it’s hard to believe that his best years are behind him at 25. Barring injury you would have to believe that as a young lefty that has had success in the past, he still possesses value. It’s possible his performance over the last 2 years has been effected by the lack of talent around him. He may not be a #1 but wouldn’t be less than a #3 starter on most any staff. A team with a need for a lefty starter would be foolish to not at least inquire as to what it would take to get him.

  2. I think the fans would have preferred the baby blues.

  3. Wow! Drop the stripes and stick with these for all home games. Much cleaner look.

    I like the red belt, especially in contrast with the blue stars and red-and-blue piping. That is snazzy.
