Cubs & Sox Get Thumbs Up for 2011 Uniforms

New for 2011: Juan Pierre has a Sox logo on his stirrups.

It's the MLB preview we've all been waiting months to read: Paul Lukas' obsessively researched overview of what's new this season in uniforms. He's the guy to see for analysis of everything from Yankees pinstripes to those horrible things the Astros used to wear.

The Cubs haven't really changed anything, though Lukas approvingly makes note of their "beautifully simple memorial patch for Ron Santo."

Of the Sox, he writes:

Disappointing move by the White Sox, who've made a major downgrade to their road jersey's sleeve patch. On the plus side, team execs have said the road grays will be worn more often this season, instead of the black alternate that increasingly [has] become the club's standard road look. Meanwhile, the "Sox" logo has also been added to the team's stirrups, although Juan Pierre and manager Ozzie Guillen may be the only ones wearing them.
