Headley and Uniforms

Alright, I'm not much of a fanpost writer, but I got two complaints/wonderings going on.

First is with Chase Headley. He's hitting very well against righties, not so good against lefties. Kinda sucks, right? He's a switch hitter though, so against righties he's batting left-handed and against lefties he's batting right handed.

Could it be he just sucks at switch hitting? What if he tried hitting left-handed against a left-handed pitcher? I know  it doesn't meet the "matchup", but if you're a good hitter you can hit both left-and-right-handed pitching from only one side. When he gets good as just a left-handed batter, then he can go back to trying to hit from both sides.

I think it would be worth a shot.

 

Second deal is with the uniforms. I think they're fine, so no this isn't about needing to change them. I'm just griping that we don't keep the same uniforms for a long time. Having a set uniform creates respectability.....we're coming up on our 45th anniversary in a few years, and it seems like even now we're still struggling for respect. Other teams (even the sucky ones) have set uniforms that never change, but it seems like we're always trying to trot out some new ones. Other than trying to make people trying to buy new uniforms every year, by changing every 10 years or so we're looking less like rivals to the Yankees and more like the Flint Tropics.
