  1. MLB changes 2018?

    Well I didn't mean it as if they were spending huge bucks on it. I just meant that almost every team got green caps and some got jerseys but the Brewers were for some reason the only team to go and get helmet decals for a one time event in a meaningless spring game. Just seemed odd for them to go above and beyond for this specific event. I wasn't trying to say they were suddenly gonna be in financial distress over these helmets.
  2. MLB changes 2018?

    How is it not a waste of money and time (as in the time it takes to produce them) to make a new helmet logo for something that will be worn one day for about 3 to 4 hours max? And what do you mean by buying new helmets?
  3. MLB changes 2018?

    Giants and Marlins look good combining the St Patrick's green with their oranges... A's using the kelly hats with their hunter jerseys is mind numbingly frustrating... Brewers oddly made their helmet logos green which is a weird clash as the helmet is still navy but I'm also perplexed in the sense of it being a waste of time and money lol... the rest of the teams that I saw all looked good to great, with the disclaimer that of course I've already said I support the green gear on St Patrick's Day in these meaningless exhibition games so most of the odd color combos or clashes or anything that just seems gaudy gets a general pass with me here.

    I can agree with this but reading this reminded me of this...
  5. MLB changes 2018?

    We don't disagree as much as we think. I think it's two sides of a similar coin, kinda... 1. I agree that most mascot logos don't belong on the chest because they look minor league but I don't think this particular logo is "mascot based", it's still got a huge clear to read letter on it and the Marlins itself adds to the beauty of that logo... this is clearly open to interpretation 2. Yes it definitely would be better with more teal but that's just the way those unforms were at that time so I won't use that as a fault against the uniform. 3. & 4. Yes it could be better but I feel like you're disliking that jersey more because it's Yankees dress up... do you dislike the White Sox home jersey too for the same reason?

    I'd still like his answer since he's the one that said it but that jersey didn't suck. That F logo is amazing and looks great anywhere. That's an underrated alternate that sadly wasn't worn enough. Was it too much like the Yankees? Yea of course it was. But some think that "looking like the Yankees while not being the Yankees" means something isn't good but that's not always the case, especially here.
  7. MLB changes 2018?

    What sucked the first time?
  8. MLB changes 2018?

    According to the Marlins radio announcer Dave Van Horne, the team will not be wearing their red-orange Sunday home alternate jerseys at all during the 2018 season. That's a pretty significant change and tells me a lot about how things could change as far as a uniform rebrand down the line. Pretty stunned about this as I loved that jersey. Shocked they'd drop it before any uniform overhaul too.
  9. MLB changes 2018?

    Marlins new ownership has started a "listening campaign" to get increased fan feedback with surveys, social media polls, video testimonial booths, etc etc and the first social media poll was whether or not the home jerseys should say Miami or Marlins across the front... first sign of a uniform overhaul down the line.
  10. MLB changes 2018?

    I could be wrong but you're using a once a season special event to say that there's no point in different numbers the rest of the season? I don't get that. I get why some people don't like the Jackie Robinson thing but I absolutely understand the point of it and the message it's trying to send... that we're all equal and every one is on the same level and on that specific day, and on that day only, they're literally showing it through the use of Jackie's number on everyone. It makes perfect sense to me.
  11. MLB changes 2018?

    New advertisement for Marlins caps/opening day shows the smaller logo... though when I click the link and it takes me to the shop the product images still look like the bigger ones... what a mystery... there's a million signs that the cap logo has shrunk yet there isn't one definitive conclusive answer yet...
  12. MLB changes 2018?

    All this talk about ST jersey numbers and I just noticed yesterday that the Cubs don't have all white names and numbers, they have red names and numbers. That's the only team I've noticed not using the white ones. It looks decent for them but I wonder why no other teams changed their color...
  13. MLB changes 2018?

  14. MLB changes 2018?

    Exactly. This is why I say the spring name and numbers all look like they're unfinished. Like if someone colored in the front numbers but didn't get a chance to do it for the back on time.
  15. MLB changes 2018?

    Yea I can't believe how much the sweat shows. I thought the whole point of these thngs, in terms of technology/advancements in the material, was to get away from things like sweat stains being so profound. These seem to be a step backwards from the diamond era material. I still can't forget the guy who compared these to cargo shorts material. It seems to be even more fitting now.

    Believe me I feel ya but I think this is one of the problems with the mega threads... it's easy to miss a topic in over 70 pages of content. Things are bound to get repeated.
  17. MLB changes 2018?

    Some teams have 2 jerseys but most have one. If you've seen a second you might be talking about that 3/4 sleeve pullover with nothing on the back and the number on the left sleeve that is meant more for batting practice and warmups than for game action. Yes the Yankees and Tigers do have two different jerseys though, one for home one for away. The Tigers actually have 4 caps too but so far I've only seen them wear 2 of them. Edit: Just glanced over a few of the cap selections and there is no rhyme or reason for so many of them and the teams aren't even wearing most of the alternates and/or road versions. Several teams have made 2-4 caps and are only wearing one at all times basically reminding us that the extra caps are just there for the profits. $$$$$$$$$$$$$ To be honest I kinda have no problem with teams making extra caps for $$$ for spring training but if you've got 3 or 4 caps, it'd be nice to see the players rotate through all of them at least every so often. Wouldn't that even drive more sales if fans see all of the cap options being worn by their team's players?
  18. MLB changes 2018?

    I was told this too but I strongly doubt that. I have specifically seen both photos and video of the Marlins photo day and in all of them the players wore these smaller logo caps. Also, I find it very strange and time consuming that players would wear blank caps on photo day for the logo to be photoshopped in later. Seems ridiculous.
  19. MLB changes 2018?

    The only evidence has been literally looking at the caps compared to last year but there's been nothing official from the team or even from any retailers that I've seen. I feel like this won't be 100% confirmed until we see what they're wearing on Opening Day.
  20. MiLB teams with MLB-caliber identities

    This thread reminds us just how many great MiLB identities/looks there are. I think many of us (definitely me, at least) think of all the quirky, silly MiLB team names and logos and those start to become what we think of first and, while many of those have their own charm to them, I think it detracts from the identities that truly are great in MiLB.
  21. MLB changes 2018?

    That's not what I was discussing. Gothamite brought up the thing about small size applications, which is fine and which I agreed with. All I've been saying is that I don't think cap logos should be the primary logos, even though they are better in many applications and can definitely be used more frequently than primary logos. So a cap logo is better for use on social media and other platforms where it will be seen at a smaller scale? I 100% agree with that. But that doesn't mean a cap logo should be the primary logo, in my opinion. Who says the logo used on smaller platforms must be the primary logo? I see the Marlins Instagram every single day and all of spring training they've been using their spring training cap logo, not their primary logo.
  22. MLB changes 2018?

    Well that's a whole other issue altogether and I don't think that's relevant here. Assuming everything is clear enough to be read there's no way a cap logo gives enough information compared to a complete primary logo.
  23. MLB changes 2018?

    Huh? But it literally says Milwaukee and it says Brewers and there's clearly a baseball in the logo. How can there be "absolutely no way" you can tell what those things are? All you have to do is look at it and read the words. What am I missing here?
  24. Why does no team use earth tone colors? 

    Yeah but that's clearly for a military theme. It's still earth tones but there seems to be a distinct reason for this one that excludes it from the conversation I think.
  25. MLB changes 2018?

    How so? The bottom one tells me the team is called the Brewers, and that they play baseball and represent the city of Milwaukee. What does the top logo tell me? How do I know what that M is for and what it represents?
