Werder Bremen = Bad Kit

One of the best things about the Champions League Playoff Round is seeing all of the different kits from teams that are not usually on TV.

Sometimes there are great jersey and other times there are terrible one, but of all of the teams I have seen German giants Werder Bremen take the cake for the worst kits. Two shades of green and a lighting blot separating the greens on the front of it, i just do not get it. Usually they have some classic designs and I like them but this one is not up the standards they have set in the past.

Shame on MLB Network

So you have Jonathan Mayo and Peter Gammons, two of the biggest names in minor league and draft coverage, on your roster and what do you show on draft deadline signing day an hour before the deadline, show a program recapping the days games.

While MLB Network continues to grow last night it made a huge mistake in not doing some type of signing deadline specials. For a network that builds itself to be the home of baseball to treat the second biggest day in the prospects calendar, the draft being the first, like this is just not right.

Some years there are few story lines when it comes to signing day but this year there were a ton of them. From Harper and the Nats trying to get a deal done to Lee with the Dodgers to Parker and the Rockies. That does not count all of the sandwich round guys that signed for over slot.

Maybe next year MLB Network will step up and do a late night show tracking the signs. That would be nice for the network that says they have everything in baseball covered.
