    Of the caps linked above, the Cubs, Phillies and Rangers look like Expos caps with the wrong logo. I can't unsee it.

    I'm an 80s kid, and I may feel different if it was a better picture of the flip, but as it currently is, my OCD kicks in and it looks off compared to the rest. And doggone it, I want to see his face. Luckily that '85 homerun pic is pretty iconic for him as well and I think it would look better. I mean, no one is ever going to forget the flip. I love the flip. In my opinion it just doesn't look good there.

    Personally, I prefer the LF wall portraits, with the Ozzie exception.

    I pretty much overlook the numbers only in right field because of the pictures on the left field wall. If they were gone, I'd notice the numbers more. However, if they want to keep the pics, for the love of Pete, change Ozzie's. I get it, he's famous for the flip. I saw it many times growing up, but it looks so out of place with the others and you can't see his face. I'd change it to his "Go crazy folks, go crazy" trot from '85 with his fist in the air.

    I was glad to see they used the same design they used with Stan. Perfect choice and the most appropriate by far.

    Those don't look "futuristic". They looks like crappy Spring Training alts. PASS.

    As if the Padres aren’t a big enough mess...I’m watching the Cardinals and Padres and just noticed that even though the Pads are wearing their brown and yellow jerseys tonight, AJ Ellis is wearing a navy helmet under his catchers mask.

    Exactly. If he had been wearing pink, blue, red, orange etc...then I get it. But they better be warning every player that has some funky colored cleats. But he was wearing a team color for Pete's sake! If they want to enforce a uniform code, do it for all players for all parts of their uniform, all the time. Everyone wears either long pants, or high pants with matching socks; everyone wears matching undershirts, pads, etc...all in team colors. I don't see how Lowrie wearing green cleats with an A's uniform is worthy of a warning from the league and all the other nonsense that goes on is just fine. I'm a Cardinals fan. I'm happy to have Marcell Ozuna. But if green cleats for an A's player warrants a warning, surely a neon green arm sleeve with a Cardinals uniform warrants one! On the road he's used red, so he obviously owns one.

    Agreed. They should be thanking Lowrie for wearing those cleats and force the rest of the team to get green ones to match.

    Sorry, I was talking about Busch in St. Louis and the giant plot of dirt we had for quite a few years. They kept saying they wanted Ballpark Village done before the All-Star Game in 2009 and it didn't actually get done until a couple of years ago. I've never been to DC but that's really a shame. You'd think with it being as new as it is they would've added something special to it to help it stand out.

    I know what you mean. It's still better than when St. Louis hosted the All-Star Game and we still had a view of a big dirt lot. I'm glad they finally got something built there that looks decent, but man it would've been better if it had been done then.

    Do they have multiple carts for bringing the entire bullpen out for a bench clearing brawl???

    While I may be a bit partial having grown up with him, I find Fredbird to be one of the best mascots. I do think it's more for the kids, but part of me still loves it as it reminds me of my childhood. And ultimately, that's part of the greatness of baseball, being able to still bring out the kid in us that just loves the game.

    That would explain it. Thanks for the head's up.
