    Report: Miami Marlins Getting New Logos for 2019

    Your expectations for casual fans might be too high then. And that's totally fine for casual fans to be that way. Most people who are likely to attend a game at Marlins park don't know Realmuto's attitudes about the new ownership, let alone the granular details of MLB club controlled contracts.

    Exactly my point.

    But you can't expect everyone who might be buying tickets to Marlins Park to be closely paying attention. Diehard fans who are up on all of that are always a minority within a fanbase. I am not going to blame Jeter if he trades Realmuto, but most of his marketing demographic will. They absolutely need to trade him IMO, but most of the positive buzz that is stirred up tomorrow will be negated down the road again once that trade occurs.

    I understand that, but I suppose I'm someone who's at least asking them to be consistent in their rhetoric. Because they aren't following the "either/or" you mention here. I've seen the renderings of the planned ballpark changes. They look nice but have the aesthetics of almost any other MLB park (how many people have you seen mention Yankee Stadium upon noticing the new wall color so far?) and there's nothing in them that reflects "Miami of today." I think they could benefiting from softening their "MIAMI (!)" marketing ploy just a tad. On social media you can still see that there's a lot of 90s nostalgia among the casual fans that they need to win back. And there are plenty of fans in Broward and Palm Beach who go to less games now on account of how much harder it is to get to the ballpark. At times I view their attempts at pandering to the Latino community to be just a little desperate and they need to acknowledge that having a stable organization and winning culture are more important than anything else. One has to imagine that simply trading Realmuto this offseason (whether it's necessary or not makes no difference to most fans who are likely to visit the ballpark) will easily negate any positive buzz the new branding generates. So I agree with David Samson at least partially. He's an idiot for not owning up to his regime's awful management, but he's right in saying this is all window dressing in the end.

    Maybe it's because I'm from Broward but I don't see these shades of blue and red representing Miami culture "today" any better than teal would. I don't hate these colors but they are surely not what would have come to mind if prompted. I guess it's an eye of the beholder thing. Miami is a colorful city which is why I don't want to see too much black. Also, while I embrace the changes they are making to the ballpark and want the HR sculpture gone, all they are doing is making the park more cookie cutter. The dining options might feel more Miami but they are eliminating most of the local character at least in an aesthetic sense. So I don't entirely buy what Bowers is selling here. But in the end, the branding is not important because it captures the culture of Miami but rather because it helps us forget Loria.

    I don't know if we saw the same thing or not but that still looks like a true red to me.

    I don't mind them being another blue and red team because they are using brighter shades of both, but I am still worried that the black will be too much. I'm also concerned that the primary logo doesn't work on a background that isn't white. It will be interesting to see how they manage that one.

    Those renovations look pretty sharp! So it looks like they plan on growing some ivy?

    Yep, the blue wall also looks photoshopped to me. I wonder why he would even do that other than perhaps to tease people with planned changes. Most people would have expected them to get rid of the green walls, which are pretty blatant symbols of the Loria era. Many of the ballpark changes seem to be for the better, but I am concerned that they are going to be ripping out too many seats in the lower bowl that aren't part of the Diamond Club. One could easily say that the Marlins have plenty of empty seats to spare, but I would hate an outcome where non-luxury seats behind the home or visiting dugouts become scarcer or more expensive. Not everyone wants to stand in the outfield for the whole game or spend wads of cash on some kind of excessively opulent seating area.

    I could be dead wrong, but that looks photoshopped to my eye. I'm quite certain that IS the logo, though.

    I think he means that they should just go ahead and change their name to the Miami Miamians of Miami.

    You appear to be right I think! If that's the case, do you still think we are looking at a number? The photo is a lot more visually confusing for me now.

    I've been revisiting the leaked logo image from a few weeks ago several times after the last two Twitter teaser images and the color looks much more red now than I originally perceived. In fact, I don't see much of a hint of pink at all anymore. It's clearly a red, although a somewhat bright one. Perhaps the lower quality image had many of us fooled?

    Green and yellow are sorely underutilized in baseball IMO. Ironically, I think that the A's have the some of the best unis in MLB!

    My gut is telling me the same thing. Overall I sense that design choices we've seen from the leaks thus far quite closely align with how I would have expected the majority of the fanbase to vote in those Dimelo polls. I don't recall there being specific questions about color, though. Although there's no teal (and there probably was never going to be), I do think they listened to fans. So they deserve credit for that even if they don't execute it well. They probably selected the blue color at the early onset (and never even entertained keeping orange) and tailored their other design choices in accordance with the poll data. For what it's worth, one recent article said that MLB approved the rebrand "in late September (if not sooner)," so not entirely certain what that latter part means. March to September seems like a reasonable timeframe for the whole process.
