    Miami Marlins 2019 Rebrand

    Dude come on what an unfair comment... They've had a black jersey in their rotation since 2003 so it's at least 40 MILLION times over the last sixteen seasons. Get it right.

    They will not, as the blue is designated for BP and Spring Training. I don't know this for sure but I'd imagine black jerseys aren't as hot compared to others anymore will all the coolbase etc moisture wicking blah blah technology. Also, they play indoors when in Miami.

    Oh yeah how'd I forget that. I loved those. Edit: Seems like the Cubs wore pinstripes on the road too but on powder blue instead of gray...

    2019 MLB Changes

    I wouldn't say my favorite but it's a cool look and I'm surprised it hasn't been done more... Off the top of my head... late 80's Padres, 2000's Rockies, 80s/90s Twins only right? Anyone else?

    Brown tops, tan bottoms...

    Right direction but not sold on the tan pants. Isn't that pushing the UPS driver look that the owner said they wanted to stay away from? (Edit: actually laughing because now I think the UPS driver does have tan bottoms because their shorts are pretty short thus their legs appear as the tan pants here) With that said have the Padres ever worn brown tops with gray pants at all? Anyways these probably need more contrast, I'd add white and yes I know these are for the road but the Jays and Phillies do have white on their road grays.

    Am I the only one that sometimes reads the Rockies cap CR as saying "ColoRado?"

    That wasn't my intention, definitely the on field stuff comes first and the merchandise isn't supposed to justify the on field stuff... truly was just saying "at least we have all that blue merchandise available for us." So yes back to your original question, aesthetically I do think more blue would be better and I can't think of anyone (that I've actually spoken to) who wouldn't agree with that.

    Blue bill caps at the team store...

    Miami Marlins 2019 Rebrand

    Yes that's exactly what I'm saying... some Marlins fans want more blue on the jerseys and while they don't have it at least they have more blue on their merchandise for those that want that option... I'm not sure if we're actually disagreeing here. Edit: Re-read the post again, yeah maybe the other teams were better examples because they use secondary and even tertiary colors in some cases as opposed to the Yankees who use one main color so much that white basically becomes their secondary color.

    They don't have navy blue Yankee jerseys (during the regular season)... yet fans can buy navy blue Yankee shirts, that's what I mean. The fanbase in their fashion merchandise can be more heavily outfitted in one color, while the team can wear that color less. Here's the team mostly in white: Here's the fans mostly in navy: Marlins fans can do the same in their light blue.

    Rounder face and features, looks more like a chubby cartoon baby version of Billy. I'm particularly annoyed by the bottom the head cutting off at an almost horizontal line as opposed to the rounder head that tapered towards the jersey as if he actually had a more realistic looking neck. Also super bothered by him having the wrong logo on the cap. Why have a different logo than the actual team cap and to boot it's an incorrectly colored logo. He also has shoes now instead of fins. Bad all around. I think he was changed for the sake of changing him. Billy was one of the things that was perfectly fine, all they had to do was recolor him.

    I do think more blue would be better but after months of looking at this entire rebrand I'm not convinced it'll happen because the look they have now is a better representation of what they were trying to do. So many times "we" just want what we think looks better (which is a natural reaction) but we also forget that the people who make those decisions also have a different image or theme or vision in mind that would go against what we think would look better. Long story short: we like more blue, the Marlins don't. And if you want more blue there's a ton of blue heavy merchandise for fans to buy. Even the Yankees have a similar thing where their uniforms are not heavy on navy blue but you can buy a ton of navy blue merchandise as a fan.
