2014 MLB Changes (logo, uniform wise, etc)

Giants - Add some white in the trim and that messed up replica is perfect.

Boston - I guess I'm the only fan of the now-former road uniform. Once they made the socks and sleeves red, I thought it was excellent. Maybe red outlines would work, but I don't think they were necessary.

I disagree about the need for placket piping on the new road. The home uniform is the iconic one, just like the Yankees. They don't need placket piping any more than the Yankees need pinstripes on their roads.

How many posters in this tread buys aut. jerseys with name/numbers on, each year, or will buy some next season ?

I'll probably buy that red sox away jersey now
Yeah, Ortiz is not going anywhere.

I really want some A´s jerseys, but i am not gonna buy any, all their players are replaced every few years.

A shame when they have such cool jerseys.

Giants - looks like someone who wasn't paying attention photoshopped the new (old) wordmark onto a picture of their old orange jerseys. I doubt the replicas will actually look like that and will match what the team wears on the field.

Boston - is that the new fulltime road jersey or is this following the (dumb) trend of having a gray road alternate? If it's replacing the current road uniforms then I guess that's sort of a shame because (unpopular opinion) I actually liked those road uniforms. It's a good looking jersey.

I don't buy baseball jerseys with names on them anymore unless it's a legend or fan favorite, there's just too much roster turnover. Nothing like a guy walking around with a Ty Wigginton jersey from any of the dozen of teams he's played for.

Apparently the navy wordmark version of the Boston grays is gone from all the shops, so it's probably no more. Here's hoping the damned navy jersey is dropped too.

I really hope this new/old road Boston uniform is for real.

But I am with you on the placket piping not so much because it's not as iconic as the home uni, but I wonder what would happen to the spacing on the letters.

The home jersey has a nice "Red" "Sox" divide. Would a "Boston" wordmark have a "Bos" "Ton" with too much space in between? Would there be letters on top of the piping? Maybe it could look nice, but I wonder...

I'd say put the sleeve piping on and call it done.

They did this once before. Not exactly the big divide you mentioned, but I think that probably wouldn't look too good.

God, I need one of those gree A's jerseys to go with the rest of my A's collection.

We knew it was coming, but it's not any less disappointing seeing it. I really hate this trend of teams going back to crappy '80s style uniforms to commemerate a time when the teams were worse than they currently are. I just don't get it.

Fine, but why are these teams all going back to designs from the '80s, when the teams weren't as good, and more importantly, when the uniforms were worse? I mean, the A's could come up with any new alternate. They didn't have to go back to a style from the '80s. It was one thing when the yellow jersey was on this template, but it looks worse that this green jersey is replacing a superior one.

I would almost expect the home or road to basically be phased out. Not very many people call them the Athletics, just the A's so if you take that plus a "potential" move coming up, I can see Oakland and Athletics being slowly removed. I can see them keeping both green ones since the script Athletics was primarily a road jersey to start off. Maybe they replace the road gray with the old green as primary road and use the new green jersey as a sunday day game type alt. Don't really know or care either way, but I will be adding this one as well to go with my 72 throwback, 2nd black alt, green, yellow, and gray jerseys.

That bothers me more than BOS TON would, because there's three letters completely to the left of the placket, and only two to the right. The placket would be the center, so the T doesn't really belong there.

Doubtful. The A's made the mistake of removing "Athletics" from their naming once before. They won't do it again. And while the grey away's are being phased out as part of Wolff trying to leave Oakland (and they're still the only A's jersey with Oakland on them), the home whites are one of the A's signature looks with the white cleats.

Pitiful. Compared to the outgoing green jersey with "Athletics" on the front this is a big downgrade.

I understand what you're saying, but the positioning of BOSTON is the same as with no placket piping. Maybe having the piping just draws more attention to it. Either way, the wordmark has to be either unbalanced or off-center. It just has to. I can't figure any way it could be perfectly centered seeing as the T is almost center straight-up over the placket. It seems like the S should either overlap onto the placket or the T should be further to the right, with all the letters spaced more.

They're not keeping the old green one. This replaces it.

It's a bummer that the A's wore their green jerseys half the time last year. The grays look so good but I don't know how much the owner has any influence on what jerseys are being worn. I know it's the pitcher's decision but just seeing the green that often just wasn't that great

Not that it can really relate, I'm going to work on a basic spreadsheet of all the alternates, throwbacks or whatever special jerseys this season. It'll certainly be a pain in the ass but it's something that can help out if there is a Daily Uniform tracker done again this season on the main site

The Red Sox have used different placements of the letters over the years. The most common has been the T nearest the center of the placket.

Somewhere in the Reds front office, someone is saying "Gee, that new Boston road jersey would look fantastic if only it had some additional white outline and black drop shadow." Obviously, I'm envious and bitter.

Awesome. I might have to buy me one.

While I'm not the biggest fan of the placket piping, it's more than made up for by the classic script logo. I like it slightly more than I liked the old orange alt. I'm just happy it's not going to be worn with the original orange alt (Baer, pick either the "San Francisco" road, or the "SF" road, not both).

Ummm....nice work Majestic on totally screwing up the replicas....

Jeez. How does a company mess up their own jersey? Maybe it's just a bad photoshop?
