There's still something a bit unimaginative about the road grays just duplicating the home whites, but it's such a good design that it's hard to blame them. 2 Chicago Cubs — The Cubbies reportedly have some logo and uni changes in the works, so their place in the rankings could end up changing soon, but for now they still have one of the top looks in the game (even though they're the only team in pro sports with an annoying "circle-R" trademark symbol on their uniform). 3 Oakland Athletics — Crazy but true: When A's owner Charles Finley dressed the team in green and gold back in 1963, it was only the second time an MLB team had ever worn green. (The only previous case: the 1937 Brooklyn Dodgers.) Half a century later, green is still a rarity on the diamond, but it sure looks great on the A's, whose core look, once viewed as outrageous, has evolved into a modern classic. Bonus points to equipment manager Steve Vucinich, who always sweats the details on the team's throwbacks. 4 Philadelphia Phillies +1 The Phillies' chest script strikes a perfect balance between classy and playful -- ideal for grown men playing a kids' game. Bonus points for the sleeve numbers (unique among current MLB teams), the chain-stitched chest insignia, the little stars dotting the I's and, of course, the Liberty Bell logo on the socks and stirrups. (For those smart enough to go high-cuffed, that is.) 5 Los Angeles Dodgers +1 Ever notice that the Dodgers' white pants look extra-white, whiter than white? What's their secret -- extra bleach in the laundry? Nope. It's because the Dodgers are one of the three MLB teams whose pants don't have any pinstripes or side piping. (The other two: Oakland and St. Louis.) Their basic look, essentially unchanged for 60 years, looks as fresh as ever. Now if they'd just take the "LA" logo off the sleeve and replace it with a round patch of some sort. 6 Detroit Tigers +3 Fun fact: The Tigers' pants have more belt loops than any other team's. Been that way for decades. No real reason for it -- it's just one of those team-specific quirks (although it no doubt comes in handy for Prince Fielder's uni). 7 New York Yankees -3 They deserve major credit for staying the course and avoiding trends, but those pinstripes don't look so great in the pajama pants era (or when CC Sabathia pitches), the "NY" on the home jersey doesn't match the one on the cap and the road jersey treads a fine line between minimalist and plain. An excellent wardrobe, but not quite the flawless masterpiece it's often made out to be. 8 Toronto Blue Jays — Their roster moves may have backfired this season, but there's no disputing that the Jays are very easy on the eyes these days. Let's hope they stick with this look for many years to come. 9 Baltimore Orioles +2 Un-fun fact: The Orioles' secondary logo, which appears on their alternate cap, has an upside-down apostrophe! How many people in various MLB offices signed off on that mistake? Grrrr. Despite this flaw, the team's current look is very sharp. 10 Kansas City Royals — With the Royals' on-field fortunes improving, maybe people will finally realize how good their uniforms have been for all these years. Underrated. 11 Pittsburgh Pirates +1 Much like the Royals, this is a very good-looking franchise whose uniforms were largely ignored for a generation because of the team's on-field woes. Now that the team is winning, maybe the unis will get some respect. Very nice Sunday throwback this season, too. If only they wouldn't wear that black alternate jersey so often. 12 L.A. Angels of Anaheim +1 The home and road sets are starting to feel a bit like modern classics. But the Halos lose points for their alternate jersey, which features red type on a red background -- a serious no-no. 13 San Francisco Giants +4 It still seems silly to have two different sets of road grays, but it's hard to quibble when they both look so solid. Could definitely live without the orange alternate, though. 14 New York Mets -7 The basic home and road looks are among the sport's best, but too many alternate jerseys plus a completely unnecessary alternate cap equals a classic case of uni overkill. 15 Chicago White Sox — Such an odd franchise. Back in the 1970s and '80s, they were changing their look every five minutes, but they've now stuck with their current set for more than two decades. It's a solid look, and the Sunday throwbacks are a nice reminder of the wacky old days.
