Because my opinions are better than yours

In honor of Cinco de Mayo, and inspired by the traditionally half-hearted attempts by MLB to pay tribute to the holiday, the folks over at the fantastic Uniwatch decided to design their own Latin-themed baseball uniforms, and the results are fantastic.

In the past, Major League Baseball has “honored” this holiday by outfitting some teams in Latino heritage jerseys, some of which have been more successful than others. But the usual approach of putting “Los” in front of the team’s name (which PL has written about before) is so lazy and unimaginative…What follows then, are some absolutely outstanding conceptual approaches Paulie has created for Major League Baseball teams to consider whenever they’d like to make a diligent and respectful attempt to honor and support the Latino community (and maybe move some quality merchandise in the process).

Here is the awesome Latin-flavored “Filis” jersey and its accompanying caption:

El Filis

Philadelphia Phillies: Paulie has placed your defending World Series Champions in these “Filis” unis. Hey, if they can’t put “WFC” on there, this is the next best thing.

Peep these suckers.  103 diamonds: one for each of the Philadelphia Phillies’ victories on their way to capturing the World Series title this past season.  Yup, they won it, the World Series, and now they are the defending World Champions.  World Fucking Champions.  World Fucking Champions that pulled off an amazing win today, capping off a memorable afternoon by coming back to notch their first win of the season after having trailed 10-3 in the bottom of the 7th (peep the FanGraph of the game here).  Moving right along, here are some pictures of that hotness, courtesy of the ZoZone; as per usual, click on the pictures for a better look:
