    Miami Marlins 2019 Rebrand

    Miami sports radio guy Andy Slater says the Marlins new logo is coming in November with a new M and more blue.

    I wouldn't say terrible... I think they look sharp, simple and clean but they're definitely heavy on the black and that's probably either you love it or you hate it and want more brightness. Terrible implies a horribly ugly uniform to me. I wouldn't call these ugly. I do think the cap logos are more visible than expected, the blue thread shows well in the sunlight. The helmet decals seem extra dark though. The big test for these white unis will be at Marlins Park with the roof closed (which is how they'll be seen most) as the indoor lighting is quite different than direct sunlight because of all the shadows in daylight.

    I think the simplicity of the blue jersey only works because it's currently designated for BP/ST. It follows the template of several simple BP jerseys. If it was for use in regular season games it would need at least a front number but ideally it would have the Marlins wordmark instead. The slate gray is only on the underside of the fish and it's side fin and at the end of the tail and in the open mouth shape. The team calls it an official color but it's not used anywhere else. I think seeing the jerseys in action for the last two weeks has shown how different this color scheme can be from the Heat's Vice colors which are sorta similar but in many ways are also very different.

    Their explanation is that blue with red represents many of the flags of the Latin countries that are most prominent down here... so basically they want the local fans to tie in the colors with their native Cuba, Puerto Rico, and the Dominican Republic. With that concept, it couldn't be pink or coral.

    Enjoying the sight of red accessories more than I could have imagined...

    I don't know if this is of any significance or just some one time thing but the Marlins will wear their home white uniform for their first ST game on Saturday vs the Cardinals. No clue on which cap yet.

    Reimagining all 30 MLB teams

    I want to say I like the concept if they were more "serious" about it but they also have no parameters to what they're really going for so I don't get it. Renaming teams as "a nickname created by newspaper writers because the other names didn't fit/suit the newspaper" is a more concise and interesting topic for discussion but most of those are way outside that boundary.

    What is the rarest color in sports?

    I still don't understand or better said I don't see where that assumption is coming from. Navy sells better than royal blue? I don't feel like the Dodgers or Cubs don't sell enough because they use royal as opposed to navy. If the team is popular they'll sell plenty regardless of color and especially with a common color such as royal blue. I don't think there's a "problem" with royal blue. (And I'm using baseball as my example because it's what I know)

    I'm not following your logic here.

    I love the fish alone but I do think the primary cap needs the M so in my perfect world they eventually add a blue jersey (with a wordmark instead of just the cap logo alone) and then pair it with the fish cap as like a "Sunday alternate" cap and jersey combo similar to the Cardinals using their bird on bat cap as an occasional alternate.

    Not sure if you're saying so because you are surprised but the Padres currently rotate which camo jersey they wear regularly each season so both the blue and brown camo jerseys are still in their rotations.

    I can't believe it took me so many years to notice this but... In 2011, preparing to drop the Florida Marlins name and transition to the Miami Marlins, the team removed "Florida" from the road jerseys and replaced it with "Marlins"... Then in 2012 and continuing into the 2018/2019 rebrand, in an effort to push the Miami name stronger than the team name they put "Miami" on both the home and road jerseys... So the Marlins have had a season with the team name on both the home and road jersey as well as several seasons with the city name on both the home and road jersey. We know some teams have had either/or but I can't think of any team that has ever done this both ways. Is this a first/only time ever in MLB that this has happened?

    If you can click all the way to the last picture you'll see some Marlins prospects wearing the BP/ST cap with the home white jersey for a Special Olympics/Fantasy Camp event a few days ago... I know many want that BP cap as the primary so I thought seeing this combo in person was worth sharing here...

    I liked it here too, unnecessary shoulder and side panels notwithstanding...

    It would also be funnier if it didn't come off so serious and spiteful, it sounds like he has a vendetta against Jeter or the Marlins, or both.

    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...

    2019 MLB Changes

    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.

    City-Nickname Monograms in Baseball

    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.
