Anyone Miss the Robin's Egg Blue Jerseys?

I do... I think we should go back to them. Modernized...of course... using the Carew days color scheme. Probably don't need the same color pants.

The Twins are already somewhat of a laughing stock. What do you like about the robin egg color?

I think the Robin Blue uni's would be okay. The uniforms we sport now are a mismatch of other team's designs and colors and dictate a lack of inspiration. It's not like they would be as horrible as the Astro's or Expo's uniforms of the 70's-80's. I like it. Let's push it forward.

I kind of like the idea. Not every game, but maybe 2 Saturday night's a month or something like that.

I think that those uniforms were pretty hideous and were actually worn when the Twins were pretty hideous as well... Maybe they are appropriate that way...

Seriously, they should live them where they are now :) I'd rather see the alternate red back, that would be a nice change

Nostalgia.... It was the Color of the Twins as I grew up watching Bombo Rivera and Danny Goodwin. That color was the Twins and the Twins owned it.

I like it today because the Twins can own it again. Robin's Egg Blue and Red. I also am bored with every team being Dark Blue, Red or Black. I just thought of it while watching the only Green Team in Baseball. The A's own that color. Just a thought and I thought some would agree while other's toss cookies.

Just don't do the Blue Pants... That's what made the old ones tough to stomach. White or Grey Pants would be fine.

Disclaimer... I'm not a fashion designer... Not even close.

I don't think you could just have the Robin Egg Blue Jersey without the pants. I think that a top to bottom Robin Egg Blue would work. From now on why don't we call that shade of blue "Carew Blue". 1977, .388 BA, to me that is what that color represents.

You are probably right about the Blue Pants... And Carew Blue Should be the Color name... Good Idea. If Sherwin Williams actually called it Carew Blue... I'd paint my house with it.

Hell Yeah! Look how the "Carew Blue" accentuates Bruno's physique as he makes his start from the batter's box to 1B. He looks intent and powerful. How can the Twin's deny that this is a much better uniform than there "Rip Off" uniforms?

I'm all for it. The Twins unis are awfully boring, with the possible exception of the cream-colored home unis.

The blue is definitely better than those Pixie Vests they used to wear every time Carlos Silva started.

I take it that Robins produce blue Eggs.

Yes... But Modernized. Modernized is the key word... That photo doesn't leave a modern impression so it's misleading.

Well... I'm really gonna wish washy this thing up... Modernized in a retro sort of way. Lol... Take the Color scheme and Let Nike take a swing at it. Just tell the Nike folks... You want this color scheme in a modern retro fashion. Carew Blue and Red.

Just imagine Bruno wearing those colors again. This time as hitting coach. Oh yeah... No you like it. Lol...

That color is no longer Robins Egg Blue. It's Carew Blue. Bark and myself have issued the decree and that should be good enough for the name usage.

Alright Caption Contest time.

I'll go with "ladies and gentlemen... May I present the most open batting stance... The world has ever seen."

Or "I was alway taught to keep my weight back but Vavra insists that I stand on my toes with my body leaning forward with one hand on the bat for better plate coverage."

Or "damn... these Carew Blue Jerseys look great with my Mustache".

Yes they do... Lol... I Just want to point out that if you google and attach a picture of a Robin... You can also google and attach a picture of a robin egg.

Also... If you don't mind... For context... I'm naming this bird in your photo... "Carew".

I'm with you brother. Let's take it to the streets and front office! All we need to say is "Carew Blue". If it lost on the F.O., let's grind them out!

I love an old school retro look with a modern flair. A lot of my Twins apparel has this color in it. I think it would be best utilized as a secondary uniform worn on a certain day of the week and see how it goes from there.

I'm also in favour of the return of Carew blue and am a proud owner of a number of pieces of that fine colours merchandise. It definitely needs some modernizing so running old school pics of Tom Brunansky in tight blue pants is not what I think proponents are advocating. Therein lies the essence of the new look, no tight fitting blue pants, we must go with the pro flare pant and run screaming from the tights. I mean my god can you imagine Capps coming out of the pen in those, talk about nightmares that go beyond what he did Sunday.

Need to go two-tone, Carew Blue on a light grey pant.

Ugh....hated those Softball uni's. But then again considering how bad the teams were during that period it might work. Break these out every time the franchise is going to be in a 5 to 10 year funk. It would be a good visual clue for us as fans as to the mind frame of the powers that be. Unfortuantly the team will not be as fun as the personality of the teams that put those things on every day. No Disco Danny Ford in this group.

Everyone thinks Carew with these uni's, if you want to go good players in here I think Bobby Darwin or the late great Lyman Bostock. That unfortunatly is top end. I think Bombo Rivera, Danny Ford, Bob "Goron" Goronski and the the Glove that went Clank in the night, Twins version, Willie Norwood. These were the players of the baby blues.

The Royals have succeeded in pairing their "Carolina Blue" jerseys with white pants, so the Twins could do that too. Use the "throwback" pants they had in Target Field's first season.

That said, I'm not a big fan of the blue. If it must be brought back, I suggest bringing it back as a punishment for poor play. Any time the Twins lose 3 games in a row, they should be REQUIRED to wear the blue uniforms until they win... a way of telling them, "if you're going to play like losers, you're going to look like losers."

Similarly, they should only be allowed to wear the cream '60s throw back uniforms when they've won at least a couple games in a row.
