Orioles unveil new uniforms; Cubs still lost in playoffs; dissonance

We mentioned yesterday that the Baltimore Orioles will be sporting some new duds next season. This curiously inspired some readers to remind themselves and others of the Cubs' playoff ineptitude.

From ABC2 Baltimore, we get some of the reasoning behind the uni switch:

"After the Senators left Washington in 1971, the Orioles dropped all references to Baltimore on their uniforms to make the team more appealing to baseball fans in the Baltimore-Washington corridor.

"Washington has its own team now, so the Orioles are making a pronounced effort to represent Baltimore and the state of Maryland. The oriole on the cap will also get a makeover."
