Schneiderman's Japan Caps
Although even I did not get up at 4AM to watch any of the MLB/Japan Series over the last week. The Major League Stars trounced the Japan All Stars--5 games to zip. I found it interesting that throughout the Entire Series, MLB Promoted only the Red "CURLY W" Cap and the Red "DC" Cap. Even when the MLB Players wore their Away Grey Jersey's, Brian Schneider was told, apparently by Major League Baseball, to wear the Red Caps Only.
In fact, I noticed, on the MLB Store website, MLB is selling both Red Versions of the Nats Caps with Special 2006 Japan Series Logos. I would be curious to know whether this is a harbinger of things to come--and a fading out of the Blue "Curly W" Cap. There have been some rumors of a "tweaking" of the uniforms. That would be ashmed for me. I really like all the variations. The blue "Curly W" looks as good to me, as the red caps.
Or, maybe, its just another way for MLB to profit off Our Washington Nationals--without still owning them.
Brian Schneider got into two of the five games, knocking in 2 runs in the 4th game of the series on a 2 out single and a bases loaded walk--an eventual 7-2 rout of the Japanese Team. The Phillies Ryan Howard was, by far, the MVP of the series, slamming 4 homers. Japanese Baseball Fans throwing loving adulations at him by the end of this series. Howard is one dangerous hitter.
