Red Sox unveil new uniforms and logo

The Boston Red Sox revealed a new logo Thursday that is consistent with what the team's nickname means, a pair of hanging red socks. The new uniforms and hat are an homage to the 1980's, one of the most gut-wrenching decades in Sawx history, the same decade that saw a ground ball squirt under the glove of Bill Buckner.

I personally like the look, aside from the red and blue alternate jerseys, which look more like batting practice shirts. There is one thing that confuses me, though.

Why would Boston abandon the uniforms they wore while snapping an 86-year World Series drought in 2004 and while winning another one in 2007 for a look reminiscent of the 1986 team?
