Are these the Nats' 2011 alternates jerseys?

By Dan Steinberg


I'm sort of getting confused by all these supposedly 2011 Nats jersey products going up, and then going down from the Nats online team store. This was supposed to be a surprise. Matter of fact, the lead image on the team's Web site right now says TOP SECRET. I'm starting to think maybe this is all just a ruse to keep me from posting about the Redskins all day. If these all prove inaccurate, my deepest apologies.

Regardless, here's yet another image that popped up on the team store on Wednesday. As you can see, this would appear to have quite a few changes from its predecessor. (Via various people on Twitter, and various commenters, and thanks to all.)

Previously: road jerseys, alternate caps.

No need to apologize for not adding to the saturation coverage of the Skins.

I would like to know what Mike Shanahan and Donovan McNabb think about the new jerseys, and if they don't agree I'm hoping to see days of controversy about why not.

But that's just me.

I hope this isn't a new jersey. It not much of a change from last year. All they did was add a blue stripe and replace the DC with another Walgreen's W. Removing the DC is a mistake. There is already a Walgreen's W so why add another one??

I think the Nats should go with sleeveless alternates like the Rockies.

The DC was removed from the red jersey a couple years ago - and used in the lame stars and stripes jersey...

The new red jersey only adds a blue stripe to the piping and a minor sleeve stripe alteration.

The DC logo will have to be re-done, since the team is wisely getting away from the awful gold beveling in their fonts. They're trying to get to a more consistent and traditional look and feel - that's a great thing. More script, less out of place block-y text. Establish simple design themes that they can use for decades. And the Curly W is not going anywhere - sorry.

@arlingtonJAM
I agree re patch. Did they run out of ideas? What about a patch of the Capitol building?

Kev29, I think arlingtonJAM is referring to removal of teh DC on the arm and replacing with curly "W" patch. See Hammer, Zimm, and Dunn pic above.
