MLB is losing tons of revenue

White_tee_bare_logo_1 How cute is this basic white tee? If you’re a girl fan? I bet you want it. If you’re a (straight) guy? I bet you want to see a girl in it. If only you could actually buy it.

Are you on the girly side, like I am? These two would be adorable:Baby_doll_tank_nyGray_cute_tee_copy


Or maybe you just want a basic tank or tee that actually fits well? And maybe comes down past the very top of your jeans?Blue_tank_ny_2Black_tee_2_2

Gray_long_sleeve_div_champsIn fact, here’s a WHOLE ALBUM of clothes where I bet all female Mets fans will be able to find at least one item they want. Well, too bad. These tops only exist in a land called Photoshop.

Yesterday, I ranted a bit about the lack of stylish, well-fitted Mets women’s clothing available for purchase. Metsgrrl vented her frustration as well over at her place. She acknowledged that I *heart* my pink Mets cap, even though she wouldn’t. But you know what I don’t ever want? A giant pink "Mrs. Wright" sweatshirt. After the age of, say, 21? A girl has to regulate the amount of pink she wears. MLB, please make note of that.

The crucial thing is: I’m girly and on the small size. Metsgrrl is not so girly, and has a much larger chest. We’ve got about as different sizes and different tastes as two female consumers can have. And yet we both HATE the available merchandise. That is certainly saying something.

This weekend I went shopping for a Mets jacket (which I got, an uninspired black kids medium, sigh) or maybe a long-sleeved tee or a tank (nothing good to be found). God, shopping should not be so depressing. I had a nice discussion with the owner of the club store on 42nd Street, and he completely agrees with me! His one dinky half-wall of women’s clothing just isn’t making him much money. He’d love to have more styles or fits available because–duh–women are the ones who buy these things! We buy different styles of a tee or tank rather than just one shirt with a player’s number on it. (Also, as Metsgrrl noted, it would be great to have other players’ numbers available besides David Wright’s–not to take anything away from dear David.) And have you been to Shea lately? There are a lot of women there!

MLB, trust me. You’re missing a superb opportunity to sell more merchandise–especially in New York, where a girl tends to like some style. Check out the album, and see if you can’t redesign something for us.

Help us support our team!

Help us. Help you.

Come on, women. Don’t you want some of these tops? And guys, don’t you want to see us in them?





    I completely agree! I was just thinking about this yesterday when looking @ the online store. I don’t like that much pink in my life and yes I want to wear my team colors!
    That’s why I haven’t bought anything and all I own is a David YOUTH shirt that 1) can fit me and 2) is not pink.

    Humm? You might have something here 😉



    oh and yeah I want something else that doesn’t say David LOL
    Can a girl have one of those blue on blue shirts with the cute logo?


    Okay, I looked at the Alyssa Milano clothes. Those were clearly designed for the girlfriends of ballplayers who can wear cleavage down to their bellybutton, not have to worry about getting cold, or about a pricetag…

    I did appreciate that there was a Mets example as well as The Other NY Team Who Shall Not Be Named

    Thanks for the link, piazzapower. I’d seen some of the pics before. I’d kind of love a pair of Mets jeans–and probably would wear another item or two out at night. But most of the Alyssa Milano clothes feel too fancy for the ballgame–especially when it’s 90 degrees outside!

    Way too much David Wright gear at the stadium but ah they do need some other players too lol. But i just actually posted about davis 15 facts in which you didnt know about him so check it out. Also i cant wait for the playoffs to start, these games are boring when they are meaningless lol.

    Va Va Va Voom… Yes siree I think this is finally the answer to converting my girlfriend from a Yankee fan to a Mets’ fan. Her birthday’s coming up, do you think you could make me one of those low neck black shirts or that Mets dress. I’d actually pay you for them and it would save me from the dreaded birthday shopping.

    By the way,

    Plan B is Maine

    Plan C is O. Perez

    Plan D is busting Gooden out of jail and slapping a uniform on him.

    Hi Carl! I wish I could! I think what you see as a dress is actually a top–a baby doll top.

    I’ve been looking for a good NY patch forever, but all the stores have are the huge shoulder patches, which just wouldn’t make for cute Mets clothes.

    Even ebay hasn’t been good yet for finding small patches. But I’ll keep looking.


    Alyssa Milano’s line is in junior sizes so it will fit some female fans, but not all. And like others said, it’s probably high priced and out of the price range for the average fan.

    I say MLB follows Zoe’s clothing design suggestions.
