As part of changes being contemplated for their 2010 home uniforms, the Mets may leave the pinstripes to the neighbors better known for them.
And with a strong comeback from their disappointing 2009, the Citi Field denizens could legitimately be called the cream de la creme.
Though Jay Horwitz, Mets vice president of media relations, wouldn't detail how the club would alter its home uniforms, the New York Post reported on Tuesday that the alterations could include a departure from the pinstripes that have been a part of the home whites since the team's 1962 inception.
And they may no longer be home whites. The Mets may switch to cream-colored uniforms similar to what the San Francisco Giants wear in AT&T Park.
