5. 2010-Present road (and alternates)

Now that we’re past gimmicks and Kasota Gold, we get into some of the jerseys that stick with the traditional blue and red color scheme. To lead off this group, we have the Twins current road gray jerseys which had a blue alternate version added prior to the 2011 season.

To be honest, these are nowhere near the Twins’ worst jersey, but they were all to similar to another MLB road jersey at the time. The Washington Nationals had a very similar script on the front of their jerseys for a city name and although the Twins began using the jerseys with just blue lettering for the first couple seasons, a red outline was added a couple years later that made the names pop, but again seemed like overkill.

To be fair, it’s very hard to make a gray jersey something that people are fond of and as Nike has rolled in making a yellowish alternate for the San Diego Padres this season, it’s possible they could be shifting away from that in the coming years. The current road jerseys are fine, but if they came up with a different style in the next couple of years, I wouldn’t shed any tears.
