There will be a new 3/4 sleeve BP top that will finally be coming. Sadly, most of them have a contrasting back.It was like they just missed.

3/4 sleeve? So like the Babe Ruth days?

Loria won't bring back the teal, not because he's a bad owner, or cheap, or that it makes sense or any of that. He simply doesn't like the color teal. That's really the jist of it. He won't bring it back anymore than he has to and only when he absolutely has to. So he'll have the Marlins wear teal one random Friday or Saturday home game to honor the 97 team but that's it. I highly doubt they'll wear the throwbacks more than once. If they do a  97 patch there might be teal in that but I'm not sure he'll go that route. A prime example of this is that 97 tenth year anniversary patch that they wore in 2007 which is shown a few posts above. Look how little the teal is in there even though they were a teal and black team in 97. Also notice how much orange is in that patch even though they weren't an orange team in 97 and wouldn't be an orange team until 2012. Loria was phasing out the teal a year into his Marlins tenure and injecting it with orange little by little until he could go full orange and black in 2012. The man just doesn't like teal.

 

Yeah that '07 patch was during a weird phase where the Marlins were trying to blend in more with the Dolphins (they had an orange sun logo). I'm still surprised orange didn't make it onto a uniform before 2012.

Kind of, yes. It's probably classified as a cross between a jacket and a jersey. Open sleeve end, no elastic. The sleeve appears to be designed to end about halfway down the forearm. They're sharp, outside of the backs being a different color on most models.

My first thoughht after reading that article was a brown version of this:

I sure hope not. Would love a return to the brown but it has to have either yellow or orange as an accent.

100 likes says the Padres keep the home jersey they have now and just ditch the yellow elements because they're the Padres and the Padres are dumb.

A link would be nice if possible, but Bmac's info has been very reliable over the years.    

No links, everything is from people I've met via 5 years in retail. However, Chris recently posted a picture on Twitter of a Rangers cap with the postseason patch on the (wearer's) right side of the cap.

Baseball needs a 5 year rule like some of the other sports have. The Padres would be forced to commit themselves to a lasting identity, not these one, two year looks that get replaced by an alternate because it tested better.

Wait a minute! There's really someone still taking the DBags seriously?

Not me but if they practiced some consistency eventually someone might.

Cubs hat on MLB shop has the NE flag for this postseason. While on field could be different, that's all the proof i need. 

Holy :censored:, what a trifecta of suck ! Cubs hat, Cubs hat with postseason patch, and new era flag !

Probably didn't make it on there because they more or less knew a rebrand was coming so they waited for that to go full blown orange.

 

Also, to be fair, orange was on the original logos way back when it was unveiled 1991, the laces on the baseball on the primary logo were orange. It took me years to realize that, I always assumed it was red. But yea still orange was never used on anything else or on the uniforms outside of that logo on the sleeve patches. The Marlins originally were a teal black and silver team with the orange being a "logo-only" color like the Yankees and their red.

So this is on all BP jerseys next year? Or only on some?

I totally agree. I believe they're going through an identity crisis.
