It's been reported that the Diamondbacks will have new uniforms next season. What a time to be alive!

Steve Gilbert of has an article this morning stating that the Diamondbacks will have new uniforms for 2016. While the color scheme is not expected to be drastically changed, this change has apparently been in the works since midway through the 2014 season.

That part makes sense, when you experience a 2014 Diamondbacks season, you fill your time with uniform change ideas to stave off the impending feelings of nihilism.

Quote Derrick Hall from the Gilbert piece:

"This is an exciting time for our franchise, as we have a unique opportunity to continue to evolve our uniforms," said Hall. "We have worked closely with our players for a year and a half to get their input, as well as feedback from fans and some of the top uniform experts in the world."

"Top uniform expert" seems like nice work if you can get it.

The official unveil of the new uniforms will be December 3rd. In the meantime, what do you think the uniform changes will be? What should they be? And how much scratch are you prepared to drop on new merchandise?

For my part, I've always been on the faction that the Saturday black look should be shifted to the primary. I have no Socratic argument for this, I just think it would look cool.
