Why do the Mets keep uniform variants a state secret?

See that? That’s the Astros Launch Party.

The Astros have new uniforms. To unveil them they decided to have some fans over. Looks like a good time.

Yesterday, the Mets dropped a new cap from nowhere on everyone. I haven’t done the rounds yet, but as far as I have seen there is no word on what it is.

I assume it will be worn with the home blue since that’s what David is wearing. Will it be worn with the less-orange roads? Did David grab a fashion cap off someone because his hair didn’t look good?

We don’t know.

Why don’t we know?

The Mets aren’t even good at Wag The Dog. Feed the stupid annoying blogger(s) some info so they stop harping on $63 tickets for a day…which reminds me….

ATTENTION ALL MEDIA

Jeff Wilpon will be on Staten Island today. Ask him the $63 question. Get the quote! Maybe the quote is “we think that’s what the market will bare” or maybe it will be “What! That’s insane! Who approved THAT?”

SOMEONE ASK

….we now resume a uniform rant, already in progress.

Every year the Mets do a Hispanic night and at around 5:30 someone snaps a picture of the Los Mets jersey design for that year. Why keep this a secret? Why not share it with the world days in advance?

I am able to find out what the Brewers plan for their Spanish and Italian variants. I find out about GIGANTES. But Los Mets? A secret.

How about the 1989 Turn Back The Clock jerseys themes wore in San Diego last year? We had the story right, then the MetsBlog guys convinced me we had it wrong. I mean, they are an arm of SNY, of course their info would be better than this stupid blog.

Nope, the story was right. Why did the Mets wait until late afternoon to share the design? Announce this stuff in advance!

The 2013 blues? A boring press release. Again, see how the Astros did it.

The 2012s were at least announced at a proper press conference. But you know what, Richard Sandomir doesn’t seem to care what they wear. Invite Joe from Astoria. Copy what the Astros do.

(I actually hope the Mets never tweak uniforms ever again making most of this post unnecessary.)

Look Mets – this is easy – if you’re wearing green on St. Patrick’s Day then share the design a few days early. It’s not like we won’t tune in to look.

If you’re having Klingon Night ,share the design early.

If you are going to have The Brand show up in a new cap then you should tell your customers what he’s wearing. We might buy one. This is a business, right?

Opening Day tickets start at $63. Someone ask Jeff Wilpon about that.
