    North American Pro Soccer 2018

    As usual, I remain at a loss as to why MLS doesn't schedule a near-full slate of matches for the day after the MLB All-Star Game. Luckily it looks like the cup tournaments have filled that gap for a lo of places, but otherwise, just a Minnesota/New England matchup, which doesn't exactly get one excited.

    MLB changes 2018?

    Surprised that the Houston logo doesn’t have a better version to use on white backgrounds. The H gets lost, it looks like an error.

    2018/19 Soccer Kits

    They look like Liverpool standing in an oddly lit room.
  4. I didn’t know the Padres ever wore brown until the year I was on the Little League Padres with hand me down uniforms that were six years old or so.

    2018 MLB Season

    I am moderately convinced by the theories that moving the Rays to Tampa proper instead of the nowheresville they are now would be a shot in the arm for the franchise; the problem is, there's no way to do a cheap trial balloon for this sort of thing, so "worth a try" is a hell of a leap to make. I know it's hip to hate on Florida sports fans but Central Florida has proven to be a strong market for pro football, soccer and hockey ... I guess I just don't know if the logical next step from that is that baseball in Tampa would work when done correctly, or if it's that MLB needs to accept that it's no longer a geography-proof sport.

    You're not! I've thought this for a decade! As much as I generally dislike the MLS faux-internationalist branding scheme, I think this one would work a la Arsenal or Celtic. Assuming an eventual move, "New England" is and has always been clunky (as if Burlington and Bangor and New Haven are teeming with Revs fans) but avoiding putting "Boston" in the name officially would stave off some of the other pedants.

    It is a little much. Or a lot much. I prefer using the cap brim as the canvas for something that intricate.
  8. Isaiah Thomas to Denver. Veterans minimum, the poor bastard. I have a maybe dumb IT question. After the Boston stint, the whole thing was trying to avoid surgery on his hip, right? But rehabbing it he still missed half the season. Now he IS getting the surgery but will miss half the season again. Why didn’t he just get it to begin with?

    2018 FIFA World Cup Kits

    Just looking at that photo, that's kinda confusing? Might be alright if Croatia wore white socks. I don't really mind the shorts clash as much. I know this might be an unpopular opinion but with both teams utilizing the same three colors in their respective schemes, I understand why going mono might be more desirable.
  10. I'd like to think there's an economic argument too, e.g. if a team is hopeless, don't give them ticket revenue or merch sales until they turn it around. But we know markets don't quite work like that in sports.

    The "checkered sleeves" look did not flatter Croatia. Thank goodness they finally found a good away look this year.

    Crazy how that worked out
  13. Not to my knowledge, no.
  14. I don’t mean to concern you but Deadspin had a post about this very thing today. There was also a Burneko joint about how the ideal GSW lineup will almost never play but it was probably just a lot of Capital Letters.

    Stars and Stripes Across MLB, Patriotic Uniforms for July 2-3-4

    MLB theoretically doesn’t make money on selling these because they’re charity, right?
