The Metropolatinos and Yankees have unveiled their respective commemorative patches for 2009, a year in which they will both be opening new stadiums. Pictured above, courtesy of the New York Daily News, these patches are a commentary on the histories of these two franchises.
The Yankees have obviously brought in the best, most expensive designers to concocht a graphic worthy of their storied franchise.
The Metropolatinos, on the other hand, come up with this second trimester abortion of a design, presumably used as a final project in a high school graphic arts class.
It is all too fitting that this patch was premiered the day before the team allowed Derek Lowe to sign with their division rivals. Nice job by Mets' ownership. They are smart enough to invest hundreds of millions in Bernie Madoff, but won't spend money on pitching.
