MLB trading on holiday fashion has become absurd – Chicago Tribune

Cubs fans who have been eager to see Javier Baez in a different uniform are about to get their wish.

A trade? No, more like commerce. Or patriotism. Or someone’s idea of “fun.”

Whatever the reason, when the Cubs take on the Rays at Wrigley Field on Tuesday, Baez, Kris Bryant, newly named All-Star Wade Davis and the rest will wear the home version of the Independence Day get-ups they wore over the weekend in Cincinnati.

It’s the 10th different jersey the defending World Series champions have worn so far this season, which seems excessive, numbing and, even if well-intentioned, more than a little absurd.
