Consider This A Warning

Bob Watson is watching you, John Gibbons. He knows you’re not wearing your league-mandated pajama top underneath that jacket. He also knows that you’re kind of a psycho, but the jersey thing is more important right now.

Look for a visit from him right in the middle of a game against your hated rival, in the middle of a pennant race. Wait, that doesn’t sound right … who do the Blue Jays hate? And exactly which pennant is being contested? Hmm … anyway, put your damn jersey on. Or at least match the jacket or something.

Other managerial hijinks from Friday night included Dave Trembley of the Orioles, who found a great place to stash his keys and wallet, and maybe even his cell phone. That’s a 10-gallon 5950 right there, kids. — Bryan

    Bryan,

    You can’t be totally sure Gibbons isn’t wearing the jersey – look at the pitcher. That uni-top v-neck is low enough that Gibbons could be wearing his jersey underneath the jacket.

    He still might be getting a visit from the uni-police though. Maybe that’s why Paul took a extra day this holiday weekend…

  • Wade | May 24, 2008 at 8:34 am |

    I hope they get him a damn jacket, at least.

  • Mark in Shiga | May 24, 2008 at 8:54 am |

    Check out this Cardinals photo: it looks as if two payers are wearing number 3. Of course there’s a fold in Franklin’s jersey, but I still did a double-take.

    Can’t Bo Jackson get his own jersey?

    Two possible theories:

    1. Bo isn’t hip enough to wear his old number.

    2. Based on the size of the jerseys, maybe #72 is in reference to William Perry, not Pudge.

  • C.J. | May 24, 2008 at 10:03 am |

    Franklin is listed as #31 on the Cardinals’ website.

  • Mike | May 24, 2008 at 10:31 am |

    I was at that Sox game (unfortunately to watch my Tribe get killed again). It was Carlton Fisk Night and Bo and Ron Kittle both wore Fisk jerseys as they escorted Pudge on to the field. Fisk wore the red/white/blue stripe with SOX and Bo and Kittle both wore the more modern black pinstripe.
    Apparently Fisk had lost touch with the organization and they are now bringing him back as some community ambassador or something like that.

  • muddlehead | May 24, 2008 at 11:44 am |

    i’d lose touch with him too. he’s in hof with a red sox hat on. as an a’s fan, a little sensitive ’bout that. reggie in as a yankee and catfish in as a generic.

  • jere | May 24, 2008 at 11:53 am |

    A’s guy: There’s a difference between Fisk and those guys. Catfish and Reggie bolted from Oakland, whereas Fisk is a New Hampshire guy who came up with Boston and is a BoSock at heart. Yes, he ended up playing more years in Chicago, but was there any question as to what hat he’d wear in the Hall?

  • =bg= | May 24, 2008 at 12:37 pm |

    The sole lasting image of Fisk is in the WS, waving the home run around the pole. Living in Cincinnati at the time, I remember sitting in the kitchen watching that, quite well. So while he spent a lot of time in Chicago, Fisk is a Red Sox icon.

  • rangers85 | May 24, 2008 at 1:06 pm |

    I agree with comment #1. Both the pitcher and Gibbons have that little grey V and it’s possible he’s wearing his jersey with as low of a V cut those jerseys have.

    Not anymore after the Wade Boggs fiasco where Boggs reportedly as part of his contract with Tampa Bay said he’d be inducted as a Ray. Hall of Fame rejected that and instituted the new rule that they’d pick.

  • muddlehead | May 24, 2008 at 1:34 pm |

    from hof – “”The choice of which team’s logo appears on a player’s plaque is the Museum’s decision, though we always consider the wishes of an inductee. the logo selection is based on where that player makes his most indelible mark.””
    mostly non-issue. recent exceptions that come to mind: gossage, sutter, winfield, fisk, sparky anderson, nolan ryan, reggie, catfish. of these, imho, a strong case could be made for: fisk as a white soxer, sparky a tiger, ryan an angel or an astro but definitely not a ranger, reggie and catfish a’s.

  • Flip | May 24, 2008 at 1:52 pm |

    With player movement these days, how long do you think it will be before the HOF comes up with a sponsored cap?

  • Roger | May 24, 2008 at 2:08 pm |

    Good for MLB for making a stink about managers not wearing the uniform top for all to see. They should make more of a stink. It’s a UNIFORM, it’s supposed to be UNIFORM. A manager and a pitching coach make regular appearances on a field on a regular basis. Their uniforms should look the same as the players. If you wear a smock because you’re too lazy or fat to tuck in your outerware (John Gibbons, Larry Rothschild, etc.), try a little exercise and drop a few pounds. I understand Terry Francona and his circulation issues, but what’s Mike Scioscia’s excuse, other than being too fat to tuck in a shirt.

    NCAA Lax Final Four today

    A few notes:

    Syracuse vs. Virginia

    1. Syracuse is ALL Orange…It’s way TOO much
    2. No piping whatsoever on jerseys or shorts
    3. Same number font as the Hoops SOD unis
    4. Back Numbers are HUGE
    5. Cuse is wearing helmets made by Nike
    6. UVA nameplates are rectangular but cover up shoulder piping as well as the tops of their numbers…bush league

    Second game will be Duke vs. Johns Hopkins
    I’m sure there will be interesting points!

    I’m a huge fan of the color orange but without piping ala the UVA gear, I find the Cuse kits boring!

    I loved when the Mike Powell era Orange wore white helmets throughout the entire season and then broke out entirely brand new orange based designs for the Final Four complete with the beveled SU logo and orange helmets.

  • MPowers16 | May 24, 2008 at 3:46 pm |

    The three Nike schools in the Lax Final Four:
    UVA, Cuse, and Hopkins are all wearing the same cleats which seem to be cleated versions of the Nike Huarache 2K7.

    The fourth school, Duke, is outfitted by Nike in almost all other sports except Lax, where thw traditional Lax company Warrior, makes their uniforms and supplies them cleats.

    However, at least half of the Dookies are wearing a darker blue version of those Nike Huarache 2K7’s, their star player Matt Danowski included.

    Interestingly enough, last year, when the Duke team was reinstated, they wore Warrior uniforms with New Balance cleats, except for thir star, and coincidentally the son of the head coach John Danowski. He instead wore a cleated pair of the Nike Zoom Vick IV. Ironic, just a bit!

  • Adam | May 24, 2008 at 4:06 pm |

    Watching the Braves vs. D’backs on FOX and noticed Orlando Hudson doesn’t close the velcro flap on his batting gloves. Quick search of images on Google showed the same on other occasions.

    Considering how much most MLB’ers adjust their between pitches, find it curious he doesn’t even close his.

    What caught my eye was the big circle-R under the logo on the jersey. I’ve never seen this on any on-field Mariners gear I own, and I took a look around MLB’s online shop and didn’t see any other jerseys with the (R) attached to the team’s logo.

    This isn’t on any hats I’ve ever seen, including the Cubs…so I’m curious why the (R) is on the jersey?

Fisk wanted nothing to with Reinsdorf & Co. after that, and rebuilding this bridge was long overdue. Fisk, while most certainly better-known as a member of the Red Sox, still ranks as one of the most popular White Sox players of all time.

    I believe it would be because the New York Islanders own the rights to that logo. So when they allow the Sound Tigers to use it, they have to put the “R”.
