The Yankees are breaking out a patch commemorating the first season at the new Stadium. It’ll be on the home and away uniforms and available on all manner of merchandise. has a few shirts with the logo available already. It’s a nice patch and if you look closely you can see a team official asking the city of New York for more money.

While I don’t obsess over uniform details, single-year patches are interesting and certainly make for a unique collectible.

Meanwhile, across town, here is the uniform patch the Mets unveiled for their new ballpark, Citi Field:

Yeesh. I’m tempted to arm my 3-year-old nephew Jason with his markers and see if he can do better. He certainly can’t do any worse.

You have to love the Mets, the only team that would design a patch for their new stadium that doesn’t mention the stadium or show any images of it.


Back at 2 p.m. when the Hall vote is announced. But I did want to mention that former Star-Ledger baseball writer Dan Graziano has started a blog called New York Baseball Hack.

Dan took a buyout from the Star-Ledger (as did their intrepid Yankees beat writer, Ed Price) but he’s still interested in writing about the game. So check it out when you get a chance.


Big League Stew over at Yahoo has a post about Joba’s new beard. While ‘duk is hoping the Yankees will let him keep it, there’s no chance.
