  1. 2018 MLB Hot Stove Season

    Two "eh" prospects, which is not bad for a guy who was horrendous in 2017 after two good months in 2016. It's better than having Duffy, whose Achilles injuries are bad enough that he considered retiring. Outside of the prospect the Giants sent to the Rays (Lucious Fox, who may or may not be a significant player), that trade was a loss for everyone.

    Maybe it's just the example that got photographed, but the angle on the script is way too steep.
  3. What throwbacks do you want to see?

    I agree with that, but I still love them. The teal sweaters went all out with the shark theme, what with the grey "fins" and the black "gash marks." It had a good color balance and gave the team a unique, yet unappealing aesthetic. The design did not translate well at all to the white or black sweaters.

    I've always had a soft-spot for the 1916 Giants' windowpane uniforms: Also, please don't judge me for this one (even a pre-game warmup with these jerseys would be sweet):

    Big-game heroics have always been a factor for guys on the Veteran's Committee/"____ Era" ballots: He's another guy who probably shouldn't be in the Hall of Fame.

    Having Wayne Huizenga as the first owner set the Marlins up for failure. Their existence is miniature windows of success (1997, 2003, 2009 near-Wild Card, and a glimmer of contention with Fernandez and Stanton) surrounded by disastrous on- and off-field practices. I'm convinced that Jorge Mas would have done little to right the ship, as he'd have inherited the Loria group's debt and bad financial decisions. I don't think Mas has the capital to dig the team out of that mess. It's a shame that both Florida teams have had such a bad track record with owners, fan relations, and stadiums. Having a team in that state could have been a boon for the sport.

    Stanton had a No-Trade Clause, and would not waive it for the first two trade partners (Giants and Cardinals). Stanton made it clear he wanted the Dodgers or Yankees, and the Yankees got a better package/were willing to pay more of Stanton's albatross of a contract. I'm not really buying collusion here. What I am buying is that Loria made a terrible deal with the expectation that the team would be contenting right about now. Then Jose Fernandez died, Loria became disillusioned with ownership and sold the team, and the new owners (of which Jeter has a sub-10% stake - he's just a face) are paying for Loria's mistakes. If Jorge Mas had bought the Marlins instead, he'd be running into the same issues with a team that's going nowhere and has a ginormous bad contract in the mix. You cannot understate how much Jose Fernandez's death sent the Marlins into a tailspin.

    Horrible thought time: If Jose Fernandez didn't die, Loria would still own the Marlins and they'd be looking for a few additional pieces to go on a playoff run. They could worry about the bad financial decisions later.

    He also didn't want to be part of team that needed to start a Cubs/Astros-style rebuild several years ago.

    I still think it wouldn't have been a bad idea for the Wild to go Forest Green/"North Star" Gold:

    Surprisingly, baseball uniforms are pretty tame in the Star Trek universe.

  13. Spike TV New Look New Name

    I just tuned in for syndicated Star Trek: TNG. That's where I saw many of the show's episodes for the first time. DS9 is a better show, by the way.

    Bronson Arroyo (both cornrows and basic long are correct): Brian Wilson: Dirk and Steve Nash:
  15. Uniwatch story on the Vikings' original uniform

    I like the unusual sock and sleeve stripes on those sketches. It fits with the whole 1960's athletic aesthetic standard of "innovative, yet grounded in good taste." Given the University of Washington connection, I'm surprised that the Vikings never tried metallic gold trim instead of yellow. It probably wouldn't have looked as good as the yellow, but it'd be an interesting design.
