Retro usually works for me. There is an exception to every rule. Case in point: The Baltimore Orioles.
Last week, the Orioles announced the return of the cartoon bird to caps and uniforms. It's part of the Camden Yards stadium 20th anniversary.
The cartoon bird never quite worked for me. I preferred the ornithologically correct feathered critter, even though it was the symbol during several horrible losing seasons.
Looking on the bright side, it's still better than what the Miami Marlins will wear next year.
It's going to be a long winter. Spring training games begin March 2.
