People of Franklin, do not name your team after a walking fart.


Franklin is about the only municipality in Milwaukee County that you don't automatically free associate with something or someone the way you do with West Allis and State Fair, South Milwaukee and The Crusher, Oak Creek and John Matuszak, etc.  It may as well be known as one giant walking fart. 

That said, I'm still rooting for Barn Owls.

If they do go with Crop Dusters, I'm rechristening the Ballpark Village as "The Dutch Oven."

If they were to adopt this permanently, they should affiliate with the Brewers.

And then the Brewers could pick up the Hillsboro Hops as their short-season Single A club.  We're getting a decent IPA together.  :D

Since the Timber Rattlers have gone all in on marketing themselves as a Brewers affiliate, maybe an identity refresh as the Wisconsin Micro Brews is in order?

 

Not like everything about their current identity wouldn't lead you to believe they're a Diamondbacks club.

Crawdads are Crawmoms this Weekend, Fool Many with Announcement

May 11, 2018 - 15:44 PM

The Hickory Crawdads, Single-A affiliate of the Texas Rangers, ruffled some feathers in January when they announced that they would rebrand as the Hickory Crawmoms—without revealing right away that the rebrand was temporary. “After 25 seasons of being the Crawdads, […]

Nice to see OT Sports get some business... that catfish just looks wrong in Brewers colors, though.

I had to look up the normal Crawdads logo because this one leaves too much to the imagination and my imagination went to some awful places.

Indeed.  I shudder to think how this guy would describe that logo.

I know powder blue is a divisive issue, but I feel like the Brewers were one of the few teams who actuly pulled it off.

 

I'd put the Royals and Phillies in that category too.

Even the farm club a thousand miles away knows what the Brewers should be wearing.

They're not even the only Brewers farm club who gets it...

...hell, even teams outside of baseball get it...

I get that the 1982 fauxbacks and the BiG aren't everyone's cup of tea.  But it's a distinctive look that's instantly recognizable as "BREWERS," and it happened completely organically.  The organization stuck with the current look for almost 20 years now... not only did it lose, it seems to lose a little more each year.  Why are they still fighting it?

Their solution was to try to have it both ways...hence the navy/yellow BiG set.   I don't know why they are so stuck on their current look either.  It's not like there is any extra added value from winning a championship in the set.  The Brewers would be a prime candidate for a Houston / Toronto fauxback makeover.  Those teams did it right and the Brewers certainly have the pieces from past looks to do it as well.

Makes it even more notable that every time anybody wants a tribute to the Brewers, they do it in royal and gold.  Even the Brewers themselves.  So how come we’re stuck with the horrible bland uniforms?

Yeah, they bought the team during the off-season.

 

FWIW, I've no problem with the Brewers powder blues.  I've no problem with the old 80's uniforms, in fact I think they should go back to the pinstripe, either with "BREWERS" on the chest as before or the ball-in-glove on the chest, Yankees style.

Hell, they’re halfway there.  They already created a gorgeous fauxback home uniform, they just need to do the same with the late 80s roads and they’re done.

On royal blue pinstripes?  Waaaay too Cubs-like for my tastes.

The 1982 look has proven its timelessness over the past decade.  Much like the Jays and Astros, they really don't need to reinvent the wheel on this one. I would prefer button down versions of the powder blue roads, but I'd be happy with Gothamite's suggestion as well. 

EDIT: If they brought back the gold-paneled hat, I'd pair it with the homes rather than the roads.  Or limit it to batting practice or a blue alt.  Better color balance that way.
