Or: great moments in sartorial splendor:

Left-hander Robbie Ross initially had no idea that he was wearing a gray Rangers jersey in Game 2 of the doubleheader Thursday night when he started to warm up in the Rangers’ bullpen during the eighth inning.

But his fellow relievers, the TV broadcast crews from both teams and several folks in the press box noticed that Ross should have been wearing a blue top like the rest of the team.

Also: rose goes in the front, big guy.

    Man, I wish there were some day games today…

      I agree with your sentiment. After-all, this time of year, I usually leave work early on Fridays for golf, but why not a game at the Yard instead. Additionally, there’s something special about day games during the week, hanging out in the sun and enjoying some Boogs and Bohs.

        Big thumbs up to that idea. Especially nice in the cooler stretches of May, before the heat and humidity build up.

    So does this kind of thing work in the majors? I’m pretty sure Washington didn’t stand in a circle of his team while they at oranges and say “All right, now in Game 2 we’re wearing the gray jerseys.”
