  1. MLB changes 2018?

    It's too early to see most of the stuff but any changes that are coming would have already been reported on and/or at least hinted on by people who have seen them.
  2. MLB changes 2018?

    No way. If that had been the case all this time it would sure have been leaked out before now. But if it is true... oh man add to the mountain of hilarity of that damn organization.

    This makes a lot of sense but fans who buy authentic jerseys to wear them actually wear them outside of their pants so, for the sake of making sure fans buy these jerseys, they should probably put pinstripes on that flap.
  4. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    These pics made me curious as to why the Rays dropped their inaugural uniforms so relatively quickly. They only spent 3 seasons in them. Considering how long the process of making a complete uniform overhaul takes, it's safe to assume they decided on dropping their inaugural set within 2 years of wearing them, if not less. I have to believe it's rare for any team to revamp their look so soon after their inception. Even if the uniform is ugly usually a new team sticks to their initial look for a while. Anyone have any insight as to how this happened?

    Aaron Boone on the Marlins in 2007. I'm a Marlins fan and enjoyed his time here but man was it brief. He didn't even make it halfway through the season before suffering a season ending injury. Appeared in 69 games total. Edit: After posting this I wondered where Boone went after 07 and it turns out in 2008 he was with the Nationals and in 2009 he played about a month with the Astros...

    Related but unrelated... apparently a really random option was available to the Rockies in 2011 and only a few players actually wore this... an undershirt for the vest with the player's number oddly printed on the sleeve in almost a stencil shape/font... Looks really weird. Almost like the players did this themselves with a stencil and a can of purple spray paint...
  7. MLB changes 2018?

    Definitely brighter and uglier even if it was meant to be that way. Horrible. They spent all season successfully hyping up their improved color scheme and suddenly late season there's an entire weekend where they revert to a color even worse than the one they previously had. Ironic how that worked out.
  8. MLB changes 2018?

    Well, the Rockies' vests are black because purple undershirts were the original plan when they were designed. Below is the proof. Honestly asking... does anyone think this was a better look? I'm torn on it myself...
  9. MLB changes 2018?

    Is this silver Rockies cap gonna be worn all season every day or is it like an alternate that will only be worn occasionally? I think I deal with it as an alternate but would hate to lose the purple in the cap all season long. It would just look like they "forgot to color in the logo" all season long. Like a manufacturing error or something kinda like when the Nationals accidentally made that NATINALS jersey that one time. Edit: MLB Shop has it listed as an alternate. Let's see how it actually get used.
  10. MLB changes 2018?

    Yeah true but it was just ugly lol. Kinda like this pic below... he also for some reason had it like 2 sizes too big so it was just too big on him. We said he looked like a bull fighter flapping the red cape...
  11. MLB changes 2018?

    I think you should still look like your team's brand and colors and logos even in practice. Experimenting is one thing but being completely different and bordering on just randomness for BP or any practice is just odd. Especially with all the media these days, people actually see what teams wear in their practices. I had a friend who owned an all red Yankees jersey. It was horrific and we ragged on him all the time for it. Imagine if the Yankees wore red caps and jerseys for BP. That's not "experimenting" that's being stupid.
  12. MLB changes 2018?

    This is excellent!
  13. MLB changes 2018?

    The "zoom in" closer pics on mlb shop makes it look like the lighter orange that they introduced in the 2016-17 ST/BP caps, seen below. So that means it the light orange, their usual red orange, their light/"ocean" blue, and white. Their usual yellow, black, and silver are removed from this logo, which I believe it a plus and a step forward for them.
  14. MLB changes 2018?

    Marlins is not the same as their home. The coloration is different and the squatchee is orange, which is at least interesting. The recoloring is fine but seems very whatever, nothing ground breaking. With that said, if any team can get away with recoloring their logo every now and then it's the Marlins as their logo has so many "parts" and of course they wanted a "colorful Miami art deco" theme to their logo so recoloring it seems like the "right" thing to do. Of note, even though the cap itself is almost entirely black, this is the first time the Marlins have ever used a logo that has zero black in the logo itself. Maybe they were once again taking a step away from black and towards being more colorful. With that said, it may be a moot point because the timing of this cap's release means it was designed by previous ownership so there's no clue where the new ownership is heading as far as the logo and colors.

    MLB, New Era, Majestic, and Under Armour are all gonna love this... "So even when people don't like our new stuff they give us their money by buying more of the old stuff? This is BRILLIANT!!! Kudos to all of you! Excellent marketing! LIFETIME MERCHANDISING CONTRACT EXTENSIONS FOR EVERYONE!!! MWAHAHAHAHA... MONEY MONEY MONEY MONEY MONEEEEEEEEYYY EVERYBODY'S GOT A PRICE! EVERYONE'S GONNA PAY!!!!"
  16. MLB changes 2018?

    I can't believe chromaflex logos on the front of the caps will now be a thing... then again, I shouldn't be surprised... then again, (again), some of them might actually look good... oh my goodness, I might wanna buy some of these new BP caps...
  17. MLB changes 2018?

    Reds have used black as an accent color for a long time so it doesn't bother me that they use black especially in their merchandise and fan apparel. Should there be less of it in their uniforms? Most likely that's a yes. (I only say "most likely" because at least they've scaled back from all the black they used in the early 2000's) So with that said, I'm not so sure the Reds are necessarily BFBS. Staying on topic, that new BP cap for them looks great... as a fashion cap. Sure looks like it would clash with the rest of their on field gear. Too much black and a whole different C... it makes me wonder if they'll have more new on field gear that also uses more black and the different C.

    But 9 out of 10 Giants fans take no offense to that beveled font though.
  19. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    No I'm not talking about the success they had or didn't have in it. I'm talking about it in a vacuum based on the aesthetics of it alone, disregarding their previous or future uniforms.

    Toronto should retire Halladay's number but I don't think the Phillies need to do it. I mean, would they consider retiring it if he didn't just pass?
  21. Players on the "RIGHT" Team, but "WRONG" Uniform

    Roy Halladay Edition...
  22. MLB changes 2018?

    This is what I was getting at. Halladay absolutely deserves a patch, especially from Toronto. But are there other cases of recently retired players dying and whether or not they got patches and other season-long memorials or were they just one off rememberances like Caminiti? Also: If Toronto does give him a patch I wonder if the patch uses some of the design elements of the 04-11 "Black Jays" uniforms as that's the uniform that Halladay is associated with in Toronto. It'd be interesting to see how that mixes with their current uniforms.
  23. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    Man that uniform looks good there. There were issues with the home white uniforms being too black for my tastes but this one is a great use of that brick red color and the gold trim.
  24. MLB changes 2018?

    Thought about this but then I thought about he wasn't a current player (like Jose Fernandez and Yordano Ventura) nor is he like an old time already in the HOF player from long ago (like Yogi Berra). Not that that should matter but I was thinking it's possible we don't get a patch for him anywhere. Anyone know of this ever being the case before or am I way off?
  25. MLB changes 2018?

    His annual salary is going up rapidly and the team is actually losing money every year now. I don't think anyone predicted the team to be losing money 5 years after opening a new ballpark. I'd hate to see Stanton go but I compare it to owning an expensive car that you can no longer make the payments for. It's a luxury that becomes a burden and eventually you should cut your losses before you get even deeper into the hole.
