    Miami Marlins 2019 Rebrand

    I haven't seen the regular cap up close, but surely they could have redesigned the stitching for the BP cap, no? One of my fears with the black on back color scheme was that certain elements would be left flat.

    Oof, I know they are trying to create a sense of three dimensions, but I do not like the way that the top half of the fish has raised embroidery while the bottom half is virtually flat. I'm sure many of you won't mind it, but it seems unnecessary to me.

    2019 MLB Changes

    Is there any evidence whatsoever that the Braves are considering dropping the Tomahawk from their identity or just speculation from members here?

    2019 MLB Changes

    Not a fan of it. There's much too dark blue and the friar gets swallowed up. A brown/yellow patch would have been amazing but probably wouldn't pair well with their current set.

    Well, there really isn't any data we can consult here so I feel like it's the best way to gauge fan sentiment. It's better than anecdotal evidence ("all of my friends LOVE the new look and have already bought jerseys"). We don't have access to merchandise sales figures but I do remember reading that the 25th anniversary caps sold extremely well, for whatever that's worth.

    Well would you disagree that the Marlins fanbase would be ecstatic if vintage teal were brought back in some form? Your personal taste aside, of course.

    Fans would love it! I don't think the rebrand has been received poorly or anything, but a retro teal addition to the uniform rotation would have generated much more buzz than the rebrand did. If you browse social media pertaining to the rebrand, it seems pretty obvious. I think you'd see slightly more interest in the team if they did that, but not nearly enough to make a noticeable impact on attendance. I also have a hunch that Florida Marlins merchandise would sell really well in the stadium store. Regular throwback nights would be received really well, but I can understand why Jeter might be hesitant. It would undermine the rebrand too much.

    The trash cans on the Citi Field concourse are sort of a Mets blue I suppose.

    Ya'll crazy! This is what the aforementioned Citi Field (and pretty much every other park in MLB) concourse looks like: I think Miami deserves something with a little more character. So I'd err more on the side of Toys R' Us than dingy warehouse.

    Do parks ever feature much signage displaying team colors on the concourse? I feel like I've never seen anything like that before. I also found the use of primary colors to be very fitting of Miami and the park's contemporary design.

    I disagree mostly because simple signage would have been just as drab and sterile as what they are installing now. That vibrant color scheme at least helped you forget a little bit that you were watching baseball indoors.

    I'm starting to think that Jeter has really bland aesthetic taste. While I approve of many of the ballpark design changes so far, it looks like they are tearing out the color coded walls and flooring on the concourse and replacing them with industrial grey. To those not familiar with Marlins Park, the concourse was formerly divided into quadrants (red, yellow, green, blue) that really brightened up the place. Very disappointing to hear that this unique feature is going away! Still miffed that they continue to telegraph the "vibrancy" of South Florida but then proceed to make aesthetic changes to the drab and monochrome.

    Then there are fans like me who follow the team closely, agree that a rebuild was needed, but feel that the execution itself has been incredibly disappointing. I think there are plenty of "real" Marlins fans like me who feel the same way. The biggest blunder is of course the Yelich trade. The jury is still out on Brinson and he could figure it out and become a 5-6 WAR player, but it seems more likely that he's just a slightly better Cameron Maybin. I will gladly eat my words in a year or two, but Jeter got terrible value for the most team friendly contract in baseball even if he was a clubhouse malcontent. And I was also disgusted by the Marlins not moving any of their coveted relievers in June/July before their inevitable regressions. They had a great opportunity to sell high for once but squandered it. Moves like these have the stench of Loria. The Marlins also gave Realmuto some laughably lowball offers in their extension negotiations that probably polluted the water. So far the only baseball decision that's impressed me at all has been the Mesa brothers signing. Jeter & co just haven't shown me much on the baseball side of things for me to approve of them. They fare much better on the community relations side of thing, I admit.

    Those shirts are snazzy but have a completely different aesthetic than the actual uniforms. And I think the colors of the uniforms get too lost in the black to resemble neon signage, even if a neon look was what they were attempting there.

    I know some might disagree but I wouldn't call the 97-02 look BFBS. 03-11 definitely is though.
