    2019 MLB Changes

    I do enjoy the talking shows on MLB Network, sometimes they're the perfect thing to have on "in the background" as I do other things around the house... but yes having at least one classic game a day on the Network would be awesome. Maybe they could have a theme for the month, or the week, like every game is of one particular season or maybe features one particular player. The possibilities are endless. A daily classic TWIB in baseball would be awesome too. There's so many forgotten "little things" that we would rediscover with classic TWIB episodes.

    I dunno about this... Chris Taylor is wearing shorter pants to intentionally show off the color of his stirrups, the team color of blue... By having longer pants McGwire almost looks like he's trying to hide the green and gold of his stirrups/socks. And I know that was the style of the times and still looks good but having the pants at that length makes it look like when you're a kid and you start growing and your mom hasn't bought new pants yet so you put on pants that are now smaller than they should be and your socks are only showing because your pants no longer fit you correctly. I know it's a different time period I do think this looks better...

    Philadelphia Phillies Unveil New Primary Logo

    True, doesn't need the full name, just more than the cap logo. I think cap logos are way too simplified to be primary logos on their own. Cap logos are like abbreviations, or like using your initials when someone asks what your name is... "Hello, may I have your name please?" "R.J."

    Philadelphia Phillies Unveil New Primary Logo

    I think teams should have a cap logo (what is worn on their home caps), a primary logo (that can include the cap logo but that also states the full name of the team), possibly a secondary/alternate logo, and then a social media logo that can be whatever the team wants it to be. Point is I don't think the cap logo should be the primary only because of it's convenience when applied to social media. For example the Rockies Brewers and Pirates should not use their cap logo as their primary logo but if they want to use their cap logo as their social media logo then that's fine. While this looks better on social media... It doesn't tell me what this tells me...

    Miami Marlins 2019 Rebrand

    I can definitely tell you that this team has always done that. Would love to know how many other teams do that, or how many don't might be a better question. It's amazing how easy it is to think that every world series trophy is/was the same.

    Updated signage at the Marlins' spring training complex, notable for adding a white outline.

    Philadelphia Phillies Unveil New Primary Logo

    It bothers me the inconsistency of the logos being used in a context like this. I know some teams like the Pirates have their cap logo as their primary logo but I think whoever puts together images like this should be allowed to mix and match the logos to create more unity. Like either make them all the simpler cap logos or all the more detailed "full logos" for lack of a better term. The teams can designate whichever logos they want as primary or secondary or alternate or cap logos but in situations like this where multiple teams logos are together the person editing it shouldn't be restricted to just one type of logo across the board.

    Philadelphia Phillies Unveil New Primary Logo

    Where would this logo ever truly be used though outside of merchandise and maybe in some forms of print such as game programs? It's not on the uniforms and the cap logo (either in red or white) gets way more use so I feel like this new logo is gonna disappear into the sunset and be pretty forgotten soon enough.

    Philadelphia Phillies Unveil New Primary Logo

    Why does the bell look like less of a bell now to me? In the old logo I clearly see the Liberty Bell. In the new one I see either an old style rotary telephone or a block version of a little girl in pigtails. Something is so off. Seems like a downgrade to me for the most part. And, I usually don't ask this but "why" are they making this change? Like I wish I knew the reasoning because I think the previous logo was excellent for them and this isn't a major change but it's also not minor/insignificant so what made them think they needed to change?

    Couldn't disagree more.

    I believe Samson to a degree but he's also "an entertainer" now and it wouldn't shock me to hear he's stretching the truth to create drama. He's perfect for that. Still, whatever criticisms Samson has about Jeter and the new ownership is fine by me... Samson was one of the figureheads of the team with the 2nd longest current playoff drought in MLB, he can say whatever he wants but it doesn't cover the fact that his regime was a failure after two seasons and it's now time to give the new ownership their chance to prove they can do better. Despite fans being upset at the team rebuilding it's been pretty clear that this organization has made huge strides in the local community as well as in the business and political communities as well. The mayor actually publicly supports this team (he blasted Loria left and right and purposely didn't attend a single Marlins game in protest)... local big businesses have been openly amazed at how much more pleasant the dealings with this team are (they've said Loria and Samson never cared to gain their support/sponsorship, also why the ballpark has no naming rights)... whatever, I'm rambling, point is that Samson and Loria had a horrible relationship with the community and in one year Derek Jeter (along Samson's direct replacement Chip Bowers) has already made great progress in changing that so I'll take my chances with the new guy.

    In a digital design like that the top wordmark looks better. In reality the bottom one works better. Just look at the pic shown above of the team on the field and good luck seeing the teal outline.

    If those qualify as long shorts then I'm wearing pants right now.

    You gotta give the uniform manufacturers time to design a Cool Flex Zip version of their jerseys with a zipper absorbing panel to wick away the discomfort of sliding into the bases.

    Adrian Beltre Career Logos: 1998-2018

    I'm sure this is gonna come off harsh but I'm genuinely curious what's the point of this graphic when he's only played for four teams with very few logo changes? A graphic like this is only interesting if for some journeyman player like Edwin Jackson that has played on like 14 teams.
