  1. MLB changes 2018?

    So, not 100% confirmed yet, but according to the Marlins broadcasters the cap to be worn for the 1993 anniversary weekend games is all teal but is the inaccurate version with the centered logo, the white outline, slightly different shape of the top fin, the 25th anniversary patch, and the white New Era logo on the left side... It's also possible that the broadcast team just grabbed this version off the shelves in the team store and that on June 8th the team wears a more accurate version but so far this seems to be the way they're going with this. Not that they won't still look great but of course I know you guys would appreciate someone pointing out the details on this one. With that said, has there even been a 100% accurate throwback any time in recent memory? Seems like every single one has at least one minor detail that ruins it.

    A fair guess, but just a guess, is a Blue Jays-like "modernizing a classic look."
  3. Report: Nike to Take Over MLB Uniforms in 2020

    I still doubt that means much. They can sit in and give input but I'm pretty sure the teams still will make their final decisions as always. People are making it sound like Nike is gonna swoop in and just change every team's uniforms to their own radical designs. Again, the whole thing says they'll be the manufacturer, not the designer.
  4. Report: Nike to Take Over MLB Uniforms in 2020

    Why do people keep saying the uniform manufacturer will radically change the look of MLB uniforms? They'll be making the uniforms, not designing them right? This seems equivalent to worrying the taste of Coca Cola will change because they changed who produces the aluminum cans. I'm also not trying to be funny, it's a serious question.

    This below would be my preferred "scheduled throwback" if they did that. Even if they bring back teal in a rebrand I doubt they'd go with "too much" teal in their primary look so if they're gonna do a scheduled throwback then I think that's the time to go with the too much teal look. It would look great in Sunday home games with the roof open which is what it was for in 93-95. As a matter of fact in 1995 this look stuck around as the Sunday alternate as they had already gone to the black caps as the primary home cap every other day of the week.

    This. Jeter is too intelligent to create a Yankees rip-off. Might the look be Yankees "inspired" in some ways? Sure but that doesn't mean take the Yankees template and just put Marlins logos in place of all the Yankee logos. Also, there's no guarantee teal even returns. It's probably leaning in that direction but there's always the chance they try something new and teal could also be a "once a week at home throwback" like the Brewers, DBacks, and Padres do. And as far the debate about the 93, 97, and 03 Marlins looks everything depends on your preferences for the balance between teal and black. All their looks have had strengths it just depends how much teal you like, how much black you like, and how much silver you like as an accent. As a Marlins fan I lean towards the 97 look which seemed to be more balanced but there's something magical about the "too much teal" days of 1993-94 as well. The 03-11 look was cool at the time but hasn't aged well because it's just too darn dark. As someone said you almost forget there was even any teal. The rebrand in 2012 reminded everyone how colorless the previous look was. The visuals of 2012 was liking looking at a color TV for the first time after years of black and white TV. Lastly those Heat jerseys are ruined by the enormous white block shadows on the numbers. Either invert the colors as the post above suggests or at least make the shadows the same as they are on the letters.

    OMG a futuristic jersey promotion has suddenly become a throwback jersey promotion!

    Great Scott! If someone causes a major situation at Safeco Field that causes a cancellation of this TATC game and thus this TATC game doesn't happen in 2018 then this will alter history and the TATC games of 1999 will never happen (or have happened?) because there will not have been any TATC games to actually Turn the Clocks Ahead to now that we're currently in the future right? Come on guys this may be our one chance to erase TATC from history! Who's with me?

    If you haven't found it with your search then it's probably a team store exclusive.

    There was no 2004 fire sale. That's a "Mandela effect" myth, an urban legend. The 03 championship team was kept together until 2006. Still a fire sale at that point but everyone assumes the second fire sale came immediately after the championship win but Loria tried for two more seasons to compete with that team. Only first owner Wayne Huizenga had a fire sale right after the world series win. But what do I know.

    You're absolutely right... don't know how I missed that. I think my mind read the 6 as part of his 16 and I convinced myself it was accurate.

    They were definitely teal... but the fact that they didn't always look teal is kinda why they were so good in a way... Here's a 1997 Renteria jersey up close... And Piazza in 1998 in teal, why would they be teal in 96 and in 98 but not in 97? They didn't go to black pinstripes until 2003
  15. Fort Myers Miracle to change name to Groupers for one game

    Why is this only for one game? That's weirder to me than anything else. Groupers are a great name. better than the Miracle... grouper sandwich is delicious... and there probably is a cool identity to be had here... but why change at all if for just one game?
