The Minnesota Twins, or as they now call themselves, "The 2009 American League Central Division Champion Minnesota Twins," have unveiled new uniforms for 2010, joining the long list of teams looking to get fans to buy whole new wardrobes of team merchandise.

Everyone wants the latest in fashion, but paying $169.99 for a new home jersey that doesn't look much different than the 2009 model seems like a waste of money.

The best news is that the new jersey costs $10 less than the old one, but that may be more a sign of the recession than of the Twins subtly trying to offer a deal on something that is outrageously priced to begin with.
