  1. MLB changes 2018?

    OMG a futuristic jersey promotion has suddenly become a throwback jersey promotion!
  2. MLB changes 2018?

    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?
  3. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    It's the same guy in both pics lol, Jake Arrieta.

    If you haven't found it with your search then it's probably a team store exclusive.
  5. MLB changes 2018?

    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
  8. 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?
  9. MLB changes 2018?

    The 1997 set did have teal pinstripes. It was the exact same jerseys just with black undershirts and caps. Maybe you thought they were black or were thinking of their 2003-2011 sets which had black pinstripes.

    I own one as a fashion cap, it's wonderful. Something like this...
  11. MLB changes 2018?

    It is a fashion cap. It's been sold as part of their 25th Anniversary merchandise at their team store since Opening Day.
  12. Opinion: Too many teams with red and blue

    As far as MLB I feel like the amount of red and blue teams evolved organically over such a long period of time that I can live with it. As a counterpoint I would HATE for any team to drop red and blue ONLY for the sake of creating more variety. Future teams and future rebrands should be more cognizant of the amount of red and blue already in existence but let's not change the past just because we're noticing too much red and blue in the present day.
  13. MLB changes 2018?

    The day it was announced they said it would be the 1993 Opening Day uniforms which is the all teal cap, not sure why anyone is assuming they'll mess it up. They never wore the all black cap at home in 1993, it was a road alternate until 1995.

    By my definition of a best friend... that man isn't your best friend

    A glimpse of the Marlins 1993 throwbacks to be worn June 8th-10th https://twitter.com/Marlins/status/996439115330703360
  16. Mitchell and Ness can go to H E C K

    Figured everyone else already told you. Wasn't hiding anything from you, was just quoting him directly.
  17. MLB changes 2018?

    Ben Zobrist was warned about wearing black cleats during day games at Wrigley... this is getting silly... though I see where MLB is coming from as it violates the 51% team colors rule. The rules need to be changed. http://www.sportingnews.com/mlb/news/major-league-baseball-warns-chicago-cubs-ben-zobrist-wearing-black-cleats/zr0u4mgbrq2f1mnxgldftu2g6
  18. Mitchell and Ness can go to H E C K

    As crazy as this thread already is, this man sums it quite well. Original post was too harsh but he DOES have a point.
  19. For Mom, All MLB Teams Wearing Pink

    I like that they kept the uniforms virtually untouched unlike past years... I didn't like this year's caps specifically but I get why they do the caps thing and I can live with them... the socks are whatever and I hate that the left sock and the right sock are different, that only works for the stars and stripes socks if at all... the pink undershirts I'm torn on as some look horrendous but some look fairly good in limited amounts with a few uniforms... the cleats and bats and other accessories like batting gloves, wrist bands, arm sleeves, and catcher's gear in pink? THAT is what I think looks best and I enjoy those. More of the pink accessories and less of tampering with the uniforms themselves PLEASE. I also like a few of the little pink touches around the ballparks like this gem on the Marlins' pitchers mound... So to sum it up I think this is ok... But this is too much...
  20. For Mom, All MLB Teams Wearing Pink

    This is what the Marlins' original owner wanted them to be called and to look like until he was convinced otherwise by someone who told him teal was gonna be a popular color in the 90's.
  21. MLB changes 2018?

    Not just that... how many players no longer conform to standard cleat colors on every team? I myself don't mind the multi colored cleats as long as they're still team colors but to suddenly single out one guy when everyone else is doing this is preposterous. Not to mention green IS a team color.
  22. MLB changes 2018?

    This isn't getting talked about enough. How stupid is this?
  23. MLB changes 2018?

    This I could not agree with more. For better or worse the Curly W IS their identity right now.
  24. MLB changes 2018?

    I've only seen it in highlight clips so I'm not 100% positive on this but the Nats have used the new alts with both the red and navy helmets right? Both at home if I'm not mistaken. Any rhyme or reason to why they haven't stuck with one helmet? Or maybe they're literally trying both helmets out to see which one they like best to eventually stick with one?
