MLB trading on holiday fashion has become absurd – Chicago Tribune

Cubs followers who've been desperate to see Javier Baez in a unique uniform are about to get their want.

A commerce? No, extra like commerce. Or patriotism. Or somebody’s concept of “enjoyable.”

Regardless of the cause, when the Cubs take on the Rays at Wrigley Field on Tuesday, Baez, Kris Bryant, newly named All-Star Wade Davis and the remaining will put on the house model of the Independence Day get-ups they wore over the weekend in Cincinnati.

It’s the 10th totally different jersey the defending World Series champions have worn thus far this season, which appears extreme, numbing and, even when nicely-intentioned, greater than a bit of absurd.
