Great look for the SkySox and Toros, but man...... the 51's are..... something?

That's the exact response I was hoping for with the 51s.  I figured that any team affiliated with the D-Backs would have to be a bit more unique in their uniforms.

The next team ready are the Dayton Dragons.  The team's food identity makes them the Dayton Buckeyes.

Next up are the Ottawa Rapids.  The Expos' top affiliate is named after the Remic Rapids of the Ottawa River.  The team's food identity is that of the Ottawa Maple Syrup, named after the delicacy most Americans recognize the entire country of Canada for.

Quick question about the majors. Since 10 teams have been added, how would the playoffs work? Would there finally be 8 teams for one league like the NBA?

My vision would be one of two scenarios as decided by the owners.  The first scenario would see the champions from each of the eight divisions make the playoffs and eliminate the wild card, shortening the playoffs by a game and making division titles even more valuable. With only eight of the forty teams in the league making the playoffs, that would make for the toughest trip to the postseason since 1993.  The other scenario would place the division champs in the postseason with four wild card teams.  In this situation, the wild card round would be best of five, with the remaining rounds being best of seven.  To enable MLB to add the extra games in the first round, either Spring Training or the All-Star Break would be shortened to allow the season to end earlier.

The next team up are the Colorado Springs Sky Sox.  The team returns to the Rockies' farm system, keeping the color scheme of sky blue, navy, and red.  The alternate uniforms include red and navy tops, a full sky blue uniform, and an identity as the Rocky Mountain Oysters.

On food night they should move to Denver and become the D's Nuts! ;)

After a long recovery from burning out, I've come back to continue with the Oklahoma City Redhawks.  With the team no longer affiliated with the Dodgers, they revert back to their previous name, although without ridiculous capitalization.  The team slightly modifies the last logo by modifying the colors, and the team adopts the identity of the Oklahoma City Chicken Fried Steaks.

The San Jose Giants, San Francisco's AAA affiliate, are the next team prepared.  The team carries over the parent club's colors, as well as most of the team's uniform.  The differences include an extra stripe on the piping and "SJ" and "San Jose" on the road and black uniforms instead of "San Francisco".  For the team's food identity, they become the San Jose Avocados.

Next up are the Charleston Pilots.  Named for the sailors of Charleston Harbor, the team colors are navy and green.  The logo features a captain's wheel with the crescent moon from the South Carolina flag.  The team's food identity is that of the Charleston Shrimp and Grits.

The Fort Wayne TinCaps are next on the list.  Keeping the team colors as they become an affiliate of the Cubs, the wordmark is changed to give the TinCaps a better font.  The team also takes on the food identity of the Fort Wayne Sugar Cream Pies.TinCapsCollage.png.ccc30b83987e98c3b371731e04186a48.png

The El Paso Chihuahuas come next.  The team keeps their colors and wordmarks.  They also return their Bark in the Park uniforms, but modified to put the mascot's face on the uniform.  The team also becomes the El Paso Fajitas for Fajita Fridays.

I can tell you with near-metaphysical certitude that no ballplayer wants to refer to himself as a creampie.

Sorry I haven't been commenting on these last few teams. Everything looks great, though! I will echo @the admiral's comments about the "Cream Pies" alternate, though.
