    He wanted to move the team to Ft. Lauderdale, not Illinois, right?

    MLB changes 2018?

    Since they have all of the ASG patches, how do we know that MLB did not pick which Diamondback uniform they’d wear?

    HOF-caliber players whose "right" uniforms are awful

    Braun will never get close to the HOF.

    I think this is a cool idea. I don’t think we should be surprised that Wahoo is missing. I’d be surprised if that logo was featured.

    I don’t live there, so I’ll take your word for it. I stand corrected.

    Not to be argumentative, but this article says it will: https://www.cbssports.com/mlb/news/rays-unveil-plans-for-new-ballpark-with-a-roof-thatll-reportedly-cost-240-million/

    The plans call for a $240 million translucent retractable roof. Total project cost is about $900 million, but funding is somewhere between thin and non-existent. I don’t think this project ever happens and the Rays will be out of Florida before 2030.

    The Cardinals knew they’d be wearing navy caps as part of their S&S set, but still packed their red helmets for a road series in Arizona. They just came of a home stand, so they can’t claim they already had the red helmets packed. This team frustrates me so much for so many reasons.

    Canada Day: Toronto Blue Jays Red Uniform for 2018

    Looks way better than the Stars and Stripes treatment American teams get for the 4th.

    This is probably true, but NBA Live 2000 on PlayStation was able to pull off all-star games with players in their team uniform minus the team nickname on the jersey. I remember being impressed.

    Cincinnati Reds: Time For A Change?

    I guess my only rebuttal, and this is a minor one, red pinstripes really only mimic the Phillies. In the NL Central it would separate them from the Cards and wouldn’t look enough like the Cubs, but to each their own.

    Cincinnati Reds: Time For A Change?

    Perhaps it’s my late 90s nostalgia, but I was pretty happy then and still would be now if they went back to these as long as the home uniforms use the red sleeves and red cap. I understand that a team nicknamed REDS should not wear so much black, but I really liked this look at the time. Even though I’m a Cardinals fan, the first fitted hat I ever bought was a red crown black billed Reds hat. I already realize that this is an unpopular opinion. I won’t argue with you.

    Why? Not trying to be arguementative, but just saying no is not very useful.

    I recently picked up a Phillies swirly P cap for my collection (still need to remove the NE flag), and I’m joining the “bring back the swirly P” bandwagon.

    Cincinnati Reds: Time For A Change?

    This doesn’t sound good at all. Having the wishbone C and old English C will result in a muddled “we don’t know who we want to be” look. The NL Central already has the Milwaukee Brewers around to hold that distinction. FWIW, I agree with @BringBackTheVet that the uniform number font looks gimicky. At the same time, I like the black drop shadow on the caps because by itself the wishbone C can look flat. A minimal amount of black outlining can help the reds maintain a classic look without looking bland. I would also bring back the pinstripe vests and white pinstripe hat for Sunday day games.

    Colleges In Need For A Logo Rebrand

    I was an undergrad when they released this logo, and back then I thought it looked like a beaver, not a cougar. SIUE has had some boring and generic logos, but at least they looked like a cougar. As an SIUE alum, and anyone who attended there can tell you, "fighting geese" would be a more appropriate nickname since students have to fight off mating Canadian geese every spring as they walk through campus. (Picture from SIUE campus)

    MLB Unveils 2018 All-Star Uniforms: Stars, Stripes, and Pinwheels!

    I think that is true in the host city every year, but outside the host city how many fans are buy the ASG specific gear for their team every year?

    MLB Unveils 2018 All-Star Uniforms: Stars, Stripes, and Pinwheels!

    The over merchandising of the All-Star Game just comes off as trying too hard. It really is a one city/team event (the host team). I ask the purveyors of this board, does anyone buy ASG merchandise and why do you?

    CCSLC Championship Ring Thread

    I think it’s a nice ring. I hope the trend of including color in the face of the rings, instead of just diamonds and white gold, continues. As for the fans calling for the return of kelly green, this championship is going to keep that at bay for awhile.

    The LF wall plays well on TV and gives a face to the number, so I think it looks the best. The numbers in RCF lack names and look crowded. I’m sure the DeWitt family can find someone to give them ad dollars for the RCF space.

    MLB changes 2018?

    It annoys me that the Cards have their retired numbers on the LF wall and beneath the scoreboard in RCF. They need to decide on one place.

    Dude, I’m a Cardinals fan and I’m not with you on any of this. Back to to the uniform talk... i could see see the Cardinals memorial patch for Red becoming the new team standard. Not to sound macabre, but many of the signatures of living Cardinals Hall of Famers would translate to a patch very well like Stan Musial’s did.
