No Rymer Reason

The one-time crown jewel of the Padres Dominican program, Rymer Liriano, was traded to the Brewers yesterday after being DFA’ed last week.

MLB announced the new 2016 Spring Training uniforms today and there were some bold choices in the lot.  Check out this post over at Sportslogos.net summarizing the new uniforms.  My focus was on our Padres and what they decided to go with for 2016.  Brown?  No.  Yellow?  Of course not.  Plain Blue & White?  ......
