  1. Portland and other MLB expansion name possibilities

    Angels and clergymen aren't animals so those aren't meant to be intimidating thus it's nor a fair comparison. Beavers should be compared more to Tigers, Lions, Rams, Bulls, etc. Regardless, I know there are faults with this argument but I'm more not cool with the beaver having such a cartoonish demeanor and the sexual innuendo. As someone above said, it's just "too minor league" like Biscuits and Baby Cakes and Chiuahuas. It would lead to more laughs, giggles, mockery, and jokes than being a name that the fan base and community would be proud of, and that's even if we bring their baseball history into the argument.
  2. Portland and other MLB expansion name possibilities

    Beavers is a goofy cartoon looking animal, doesn't imply any strength or grace, and then there's the obvious sexual innuendo that comes with that name. I don't care what the baseball history behind it is, the majority of the world won't care about the history of the name, it'll just be a named to be mocked and made fun of. It won't fit for a major league team. And it's definitely not the same as Angels and Padres, not even close.

    Judging by recent trends, if they go back to the Expos name they'll have a uniform and logo situation where they have something modern, something retro, and some third style that's a clashing mix of new and old and they'll wear all three styles every week. Nothing like a convoluted mess of an identity that confuses the fan base while trying to please everyone and profit at all ends.

    So Boston Braves and Atlanta Braves are the same franchise? Damn that BOS-ATL interleague "rivalry" for making me think there was actually something to fight for between those two teams.

    Typo? I'm assuming you meant it might not be available?

    So if they added a new expansion team in Montreal would they be called the Expos? Normally I'd say no but the whole point of returning to Montreal is how much that city misses the Expos right? So while they wouldn't be the same franchise that has now become the Nationals wouldn't it be fair enough to start a new Expos franchise up there? Throughout history we've had two franchises for the Senators, Braves, and Orioles right? Would they make a second Expos franchise too?
  7. Unpopular Opinions

    This made me wonder, I wonder how many fans there are of both the Cubs and White Sox and if any are truly die hard fans of both. I know being a die hard fan pretty much excludes having a 2nd die hard team but there are plenty of fans that can and do root for two teams of the same sport in different cities... such as a transplanted fan who picks up a genuine fandom in their new local team while still maintaining their fandom for their original team... so I figure there has to be "someone" who roots for both the Cubs and White Sox right? Or is that not a thing? Curious if anyone can chime in on this.

    The Wild Card could go away if they go to 8 total divisions but Interleague play is going nowhere. The only way Interleague play could go away is if the leagues actually went back to splitting apart and then it might happen only if the two leagues really wanted to differentiate from each other again. With that said, I could also see the leagues splitting but the leagues and team owners still wanting to maximize revenue so then interleague would stay even with separate leagues.

    They arguably are. It seems like the purpose of the caps now are more "so that the fans can see them and buy them" than being "part of the uniform."
  10. MLB Changes 2017

    Not for long I say. Like you I love that the DH is in one league and not the other but it makes too much sense from a business perspective to eventually have the DH in both leagues and sadly that day will come sooner than later because baseball is still a business at the end of the day. Unlike many though, Interleague play doesn't bother me. I see more positives to it than negatives and it also isn't going anywhere. I also think there are ways that interleague play could work (or could have worked) even if the leagues were still different/apart.
  11. MLB Changes 2017

    Man I want most of this back. With all of the merging between the leagues there's so much less differentiation of the leagues, the teams and the players now. I'm still perplexed when I hear commentators today say things like "this player is switching leagues" or "let's check out this players numbers against american league pitchers" and things like that. They're virtually meaningless now. Leagues now are just the way we list teams for the sake of the standings but there isn't much more to it than now. And there's plenty of things I do like about the leagues being more together now but I think there's still a place for their differences in today's game.

    As good as that looks I think it's just a bit too much teal which is why I preferred when they went with a little more black while still keeping the teal prominent from 1995-2002. The 95% teal early years looks too much like a kid's uniform to me even though the color teal is awesome. The balance wasn't right to me. These pics below look sharp and I purposely included the one next to a Yankees road jersey to show how the Marlins uniform was a classic while still being unique and it still fit in with MLB and wasn't so outrageous... This one, from their pre 1993 uniform unveiling... is just too teal for me... I'd love to have someone argue it though because it still looked pretty damn good...

    There's a chance but so far Jeter has been very vague with every topic he's been asked about, including uniforms/logos. He's said things like "this is just day 1 we'll discuss that on day 2" and that he has to "go over everything with everyone in the organization" and "everyone has an opinion" etc etc. Can't say I disagree with any of it but the point is he hasn't revealed his hand on anything.

    A joke about Marlins attendance. How cute. They have experimented with it and our season ticket holders, no matter how many there are, are as vocal as anyone on how they prefer the roof closed unless the weather is ideal for it to be open.
  15. Your Ideal MLB Ballpark Outfield

    In Miami it's either raining or unbearably humid almost all the time during the season. I love the aesthetic reasons for having the roof open but from a business sense it's understandable why fan comfort needs to come first.
