Purists, beware: Thursday, the Red Sox have plans to unveil “changes to the ballclub’s logos” and “select uniforms.” Manny Delcarmen, Jim Rice, Jerry Remy and other club officials will be on hand for the announcement/unveiling.

It’s likely the team will reveal a new “alternate uniform,” to either replace or supplement the red tops the team often wears for Sunday home games.

There’s no word yet on what the new logo will look like, or whether it will replace the existing one, which dates back decades.

Fine. Whatever. My old stuff will just look that much more legit. I won't buy any of the new Red Sox tartan plaid stuff or paisley Sox stuff or whatever it is.

Corsi, please tell us you put that together in photoshop, else I throw up in my mouth. That's not even acceptable for Spring Training unis.

Please tell me that isn't the new uniform. I just made a uniform for my school that would look great for the Sox. It is a red top with navy piping and the team nickname in script(red fill on the letters with navy and white outlining) with no tail. The numbers are a Dodgers-like look as they numbers are navy on front and back to contrast the red. If it looks anything like mine, it will look great.

I think that was our "futuristic" uniform that each team wore in the late 90s for a game.... ours may have been rained out IIRC (a sign from God).

They're the Turn Ahead the Clock uniforms, which are still a slight upgrade over the red unis.

Those are what teams are going to wear in the future.

I don't mind the caps so much. But if the uniform is what Corsi has up here, I will personally kill Corsi.

That makes sense. I remember reading somewhere one of Werner or Henry loves that double-socks logo. I'd bet the new "alternate" is something featuring those pretty heavily.

It's not awful, but not a huge fan.

Not that good either.

Nevertheless, I'm open to this if (and only so long as) it means getting rid of their Beer N' Blood Sausage Softball League unis.

The hat is ok for fans a la the camo hat etc. but not for the official hat. That hat and some bling and all we'll need is Kanye West doing the public address job and spinning tunes.

I'm presuming you're kidding. New cap brims are supposed to be flat. Then you're supposed to bend them. It's not the flatness that anti-flat-brimmers hate, but the nonbending.

Not to go on a rant, but the New Era hats are awful now anyways. The wool ones you could shrink and pretty much wreck. These polyester ones are meant to stay pristine like that so some douche can own 300 hats he wears once and puts away forever next to his 200 pairs of Air Jordans.

I hate that illustration...I hope its not exactly like that.

I am fine with the socks as an alternate hat logo.

Regarding names on the road jerseys, honestly, I've never had nearly the problem with it that others do. It just doesn't bother me.

The only thing I don't like about that cap is the red button, which looks out of place on a cap with a blue brim and blue eyelets. I don't mind the logo at all, though. As for the jerseys, I could see the changes as them slapping the socks logo on the sleeve of the jerseys. Either that or a blue road alternate, keeping with their blue themed road batting practice jersey from last season.

I'm guessing they tried it and thought it made the white toe and heel portions look like big holes.

The hats aren't bad. They're certainly a helluva a lot better than those white ones they wore a few times in '97 or '98 that made them look like Good Humor Men.

And anything is better than the '79-87 road unis.

Here's why they're probably doing it: I showed my 8-year-old son this picture, and the first thing he said was not, "Dad, that sucks!" or "Dad, why are they doing that?" but "Dad, where can we buy one?"

It's change we can believe in.

I don't mind alternate uniforms. Heck, I liked the red Batting helmets.

I agree. I also think that the brim should be red.

BTW, I snagged that picture from the Chris Creamer uniform board. These guys are usually right when it comes to leaks and new unis.

That's a relief. It had me wondering if they did their focus groups in Charlotte, NC. Really screams, "Olde Towne Team," doesn't it?

I saw a two-socks logo cap on clearance at walmart maybe a year ago and bought it since it was $5. I've actually come to prefer it to my old cap. The two-socks logo design is more original than the 'B', but still has a nice classic look to it.

Considering merchandise revenues are split evenly amongst the 30 teams this probably isn't the reason they're doing it.

Can any change be worse than the attempt at the white hats in the early 90's?

Seriously though, just leave well enough alone. I don't see them going to a nameless away jersey. I don't buy the red trimmed grey unis.

Hey, you don't think they will attempt to open up the Cuban market by going to entirely red unis? Los Pantalones Rojos!

Someone please hold me.

What on earth is wrong with the current logo?

The current stylized 'B' on our existing hats just seems like perfection to me.

Don't mess with the logo JWH, I don't want anything other than the current logo-- no stylized 'Sox', don't mess with THE font-- please don't!

So far everything this ownership team has done is in good taste, but I believe this spy photo shows that they've stepped over the line here:

Seriously though-- I found this compendium of logos through the ages-- let's hope they're not going back to the 1950's version-- what the heck was that?
