I think it's an improvement on the original design.
It really would make sense for this to be a new sleeve patch, because the Mets would forget to have the numbers read 69738688990006.
Are those numbers significant in some way that I'm hopelessly missing?
The numbers appear fairly random. I'm hoping they don't represent Tim Redding's ERA.
