  1. 2018 MLB Hot Stove Season

    As a Rangers fan, the Astros moving to the AL West changed my perspective on geographic realignment. The Lone Star Series went from a cute novelty that no one really cared about to an actual, legitimate rivalry. I'm now convinced that baseball would greatly benefit from Yankees-Mets, Dodgers-Angels etc. being rivalries with something more than 6 regular season games a year and bragging rights at stake. I'm also in favor of anything that gets the Rangers out of a division where they play 20+ West Coast road games a year, and that's not happening with the current American League. When it comes to the alignment itself, I don't like how they divide up the East Coast and Midwest teams, but there's not really a great way to group them up without at least a little weirdness. Here's my stupid idea, where the Chicago teams are broken up: Pacific: Seattle, Portland, SF, Oakland, Los Angeles, Anaheim, San Diego, Arizona Midwest: Texas, Houston, Colorado, KC, StL, Minnesota, Milwaukee, Chicago Cubs Central: Miami, Tampa Bay, Atlanta, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Detroit, Chicago White Sox Atlantic: Boston, New York Yankees, New York Mets, Philly, Washington, Baltimore, Montreal, Toronto
  2. NHL 2017-18

    I feel like this logic made sense for the Edge takeover 10 years ago, where over half the league saw serious changes, but it doesn't really make sense now, where by my count only 7 teams have significantly new jerseys (CAR, COL, EDM, MIN, NSH, NJ, LV). I don't see most fans (outside of collectors) looking at these and saying "Wow, it has a new collar! I gotta get one."
  3. MLB changes 2018?

    The Indians desperately need a logo with more character than a block C if they're going to finally go through with getting rid of Wahoo.
  4. 2017 MLB Season

    The Rangers offered to host the games with the Astros being the home team and receiving the home team's share of $. If they had swapped the series, the games this week would be pretty empty because a good number of the people with tickets wouldn't be able to make it to Arlington on that short notice. Ultimately, while having benefit games in Texas would have been cool, having the games at the Trop is better for the Astros because they probably will still need a neutral site for this weekend's series against the Mets. This way, they'll be able to stay put in Tampa for the entire homestand.

    I like the Oilers oranges a little better than when I saw them the first time, but I feel like, if they had to go orange full-time, there's a sweet spot between the too-dark navy they went with and the too-bright royal they used last season. Of course, nothing was wrong with their primary set last year, but ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  6. If there really was a grand conspiracy against the league's Canadian teams, Connor McDavid would not be playing in Edmonton and the Senators would not have been a goal away from advancing to the Cup Final. The NHL is much too incompetent to pull something like that off.
  7. New Browns uni coming 2015

    I don't think Oregon State wears gray. Nike gave them black, orange, and gold (SF Giants-esque). Could be wrong. That's correct. You guys are right, its more of a copper/golden color. I guess I was trying to say that the right color of orange plays well with a more neutral color, like gray/gold/copper etc. when the third color is a darker tone like black/brown. I am just anticipating seeing some sort of new color injected in to these uniforms, a part from different shades of orange and brown that they are currently wearing. Could see like a metallic "rust" color...tie into the whole rust belt thing
  8. Houston Colt .45s jersey back....

    They are wearing that too, along with the Rainbow Guts jersey and 90s uniforms. The Astros are doing what the Angels did last year and wearing 5 different throwbacks for Friday games.
  9. CFB Playoffs?

    16 teams, the 11 conference champions and 5 at larges. First three rounds at the home field of the higher seed, last game at the Rose Bowl. Seeding is determined by a selection committee similar to the basketball tournament. If a team loses in the first two rounds, they can still participate in a bowl game.
  10. 2011-12 NHL Season

    So wait, the Stars have to spend another year in the Pacific?
  11. The way things SHOULD be

    There should be a playoff in college football. There should be video review in baseball, but the season should not be shortened and the playoffs should not be expanded. The Colorado Rockies should be moved to the American League, not the Astros.
  12. 2011-12 NHL Season

    I really hope they are called the Smythe, Norris, Adams, and Patrick Divisions (or conferences).
  13. Uniform trends that oughta go

    That did not turn out very well for the Atlanta Thrashers. Their initial jerseys were pretty good.
  14. 2011-12 NHL Season

    It's from the uniform of the Quebec Nordiques.
  15. NHL 2011-2012: Possible Uniform Changes

    Those jerseys have the double whammy of being worn during a really bad period in team history, and being really really poorly designed. I imagine they are gone next year. What happened to the plans to introduce a kelly green alternate jersey with a classic inspired logo? Last I've heard is that they postponed those plans till next year, but no one really confirmed that next year would be the year either. The ownership issue killed off those plans, which was disappointing, considering the jerseys sounded FANTASTIC. Thankfully, Gaglardi bought the team early enough in the season so that we could see a complete overhaul next year, which the vast majority of fans are hoping for.
