Haven't given any comments on this series in a while. Here's what I think.
Padres: I've never liked their current scripts, but I guess they'll have to do. For the sake of consistency, though, make the San Diego script yellow with a white outline on the brown jersey. It makes for better contrast, is consistent in the sense that the piping matches the script color on every jersey, and a white script wouldn't look great with grey pants.
Diamondbacks: Still not sure how I feel about the fanged-A logo recolored on a brick cap, but overall the set is solid.
Rockies: I've never liked the current scripts, but this would definitely be an upgrade over what they have. Use the solid purple caps with the home and roads, because, I don't know why, but in general solid hats look much better with pinstripes than two-tones. Also, if you want a black jersey, you'll probably need a black hat and black socks. Honestly, I just wouldn't bother with a black jersey. Emphasize purple for the Rox.
(EDIT: I didn't see your update of the Rockies. This C&C was on the original. Well I much prefer the purple belts and caps, as well as the front numbers. I think that getting rid of the vests, however, is an upgrade.
Yankees: Looks great. Nice and simple, I like it.
Red Sox: Not much to say about scarlet and kelly green Red Sox clown suits. The only way dumping navy and adding green would work for the Sox would be to directly swap out all navy blue for a dark green, much like the A's shade. If you want the Red Sox to look different from other navy blue and red teams, the smart way is to keep the current home jersey, with navy belts and red caps with blue brims and B logos. Creating a similar road and red home alt would complete the set. Just a suggestion. But, even though I attempted one myself, I just can't take green and red BoSox concepts seriously.
Rays: Amazing. Would immediately give Tampa one of the top looks in the league. One of my favorite concepts ever on these boards. Bravo.
Blue Jays: Their current set is near perfect IMO. Putting the uniform number instead of the bird and adding a navy jersey are lateral movements.
Orioles: Great. I much preferred the logo in the first go around, however. The new one, I am not a fan of.
Tigers: Near perfect set. My only change would be to use the cap with the orange D for all jerseys other than the primary home. (Or you could try white D with an orange brim.)
White Sox: Another great looking set. I love that throwback alternate.
Indians: I've tried many cap logos for the Indians with the block C and a feather, and honestly, I think the two styles clash. The block C is too simple for the complicated feather logo. I also think that brown caps would look much better. Red and brown alternate should be switched IMO.
