I think this is a trial balloon for them putting the St. Louis wordmark on the road jerseys. From what I have heard, the fans pretty universally love the new jersey. The team hasn't put "St. Louis" on its jerseys since 1932. In the past, fans went nuts about changes the team made. In 1956 they dropped the birds-on-bat for one year, but brought it back the next due to fan protest. In 1998 they took the front numbers off, but again brought them back the next year due to fan complaints. Then again, they put up with powder blue pullovers for like 20 years, so who knows. Anyway, I wouldn't be surprised to see that wordmark on the road jerseys in the next 2-3 years.
