I'm trying to figure out from all those Sun Trust Park photos where they put that Braves wordmark (or maybe it's just the A logo) with the video screen built into it. Ya know, the one a lot of us freaked out over if they were changing back to blue outlined in red

 

You can see it in one shot.  It's not on the overall one, though.

I hadn't thought about it until you mentioned it.  Once I checked the overall shot, I'd thought it had gone the way of the giant baseball in Washington.

Seriously.  I'm still wondering whatever happened to that.  I've never heard it mentioned anywhere.  The pedestal for it is there, but it was just not built.

Wow.  That looks so awkward with the drop shadow as opposed to an outline.

I wonder what Ichiro is laughing at ...

Probably his team's performance.

IIRC, they had to ditch the gigantic baseball since it could have been confused by hitters for a baseball being thrown by a pitcher. It was in a similar enough position to a ball thrown by an RHP, when looking from home plate, that it could've caused issues.

Is that logo peeling away from his helmet?

Yes because the logo is trying to escape. It doesn't want to be associated with the Marlins anymore.

The White Sox are also joining the matte finish crowd. Looks like 3-D decals are also becoming the norm.

The Rays had at least 4 different sock styles today.

 

Brad Miller wore traditional navy stirrups, Chris Archer wore plain navy Stance socks, Mallex Smith had Stance socks with the normal Rays striping pattern plus the TB logo, and Corey Dickerson had the similar socks with the sunburst logo.

Ugh, the Rays need green. Any shade of green will do.

Take this with a grain of salt...to me it looks like a generic logo for the Rockies. 

Are the Rockies teasing a new logo?

 

I hope not. Outside the black vest, I think the Rockies are perfect.

I actually don't hate that logo. It's a little too ski-resort styled to be a baseball logo, but I don't hate it.

 

The one they're using now (or the one that they downgraded to secondary status) has that mountain logo that looks tapered on, like it was squeezed inside of the arch to fit.

I'm usually leery of bright colors in matte, but these look awesome.
