MLB changes 2018?

Recommended Posts

When are they releasing those? Those already look a lot better than the DE caps we've had the past few years.

I want to like the Reds' hat, but I don't think it's a good idea to compromise the wishbone C standing for Cincinnati. You shouldn't have two different styles of the same letter. I realize that doesn't leave the Reds with much in the way of brand extension, but maybe they shouldn't be extending their brand in the first place, they're the Reds.

This is why the Reds should go back to the Big Red Machine uniforms. The Reds had their most success wearing them and they would be very unique today.

I don’t like the Reds cap - too much black, and for the whole compromising the wishbone-C thing.   Have long wanted the White Sox to use that style of C, though.

I dig the super retro look the Reds went with. Now they just need to lose the black. 

i like the faint black dropshadows.

 

Besides that?

 

i agree, black needs to be gone. no reason for the black bill

 

(and yes, you could[likely rightly] argue the drop shadows needs to be gone. i just like it hahah)

Reds have used black as an accent color for a long time so it doesn't bother me that they use black especially in their merchandise and fan apparel. Should there be less of it in their uniforms? Most likely that's a yes. (I only say "most likely" because at least they've scaled back from all the black they used in the early 2000's)

 

So with that said, I'm not so sure the Reds are necessarily BFBS. 

 

Staying on topic, that new BP cap for them looks great... as a fashion cap. Sure looks like it would clash with the rest of their on field gear. Too much black and a whole different C... it makes me wonder if they'll have more new on field gear that also uses more black and the different C.

I have a very bad feeling if it has a dri-fit feel to it.  Not to mention if it is still boxy looking.  

Now I'll need to stock up on even more hats if it is, in fact, a dri-fit feel.

I can't believe chromaflex logos on the front of the caps will now be a thing... then again, I shouldn't be surprised... then again, (again), some of them might actually look good... oh my goodness, I might wanna buy some of these new BP caps...

It's the dri-fit stuff more than anything else.  Since I have a rather large head, the dri-fit hats have never fit in a comfortable fashion.  It's just a personal preference.  The jerseys, I couldn't care less since I will more than likely get a couple, as long as the price is reasonable.

That Reds cap logo would be perfect in an alternate universe where the Wishbone C, the Tigers and the White Sox don't exist. It's not awful, just off-brand for the team.

Of the new designs, Baltimore, Detroit (tiger head), and Oakland are excellent. I’m really tempted to pull the trigger and buy an Oakland cap especially.
