Diamondbacks Jerseys Quickly Becoming Baseball’s Top Villain

Baseball Is Fun

I guess today’s the day to discuss controversial jerseys.

There’s some unrest coming out of Arizona, and it’s not because the Diamondbacks (3-5) are in last place, or because A.J. Pollock was injured, or because Zack Greinke has a 9.90 ERA and a negative WAR value through his first two starts of the season.

Instead, it’s because of the Diamondbacks new jerseys:

No, really, follow this link to Sports Illustrated to catch the bombardment of hate these teal and grey jerseys are attracting from all over the internet or look at the replies that tweet. There’s a lot of seriously harsh responses out there.

I certainly don’t care for the jerseys (especially for the Diamondbacks), but I don’t think I could match the level of distaste fans have for these ones.

I’m guessing these alternates might not be very long lasting.
