  1. I get that, but I would still say that the black was th Marlins' primary that season since they never wore the greys. That was also only for 1 season where as this has been 7+ seasons now. Besides the fact that the Dodgers have worn the 'Dodgers' jersey nearly 80% of the time over the span of 7 seasons since it was introduced, they have never worn the 'Los Angeles' jersey in the playoffs once since 2013. To me, that's the biggest sign that the club considers the 'Dodgers' jersey as their regular road jersey now and made the 'Los Angeles' jersey the less used alternate road jersey.
  2. The 'Los Angeles' jerseys aren't the primaries anymore, the last season they were was all the way back in 2013 before the 'Dodgers' jersey debuted. Pretty much once the so-called "alternate" 'Dodgers' road jersey debuted in 2014, the team made that the primary road jersey. Here's the number of times they have worn each road jersey from 2014 thru 2020. **Note this also Includes playoff games 2014 'Dodgers' (73%, 60 times) 'Los Angeles' (27%, 22 times) 2015 'Dodgers' (81%, 67 times) 'Los Angeles' (19%, 16 times) 2016 'Dodgers' (69%, 60 times) 'Los Angeles' (31%, 27 times) 2017 'Dodgers' (67%, 59 times) 'Los Angeles' (33%, 29 times) 2018 'Dodgers' (73%, 66 times) 'Los Angeles' (27%, 24 times) 2019 'Dodgers' (76%, 63 times) 'Los Angeles' (24%, 20 times) 2020 'Dodgers' (86%, 32 times) 'Los Angeles' (14%, 5 times) The fact that they have never worn the 'Los Angeles' jerseys in the playoffs since the 'Dodgers' jersey debuted in 2014 is also proof that the 'Los Angeles' primary became the alternate that same season.
  3. 100% for Cleveland Spiders. Sounds like a classic and timeless throwback name harkening back to the dead-ball era days of baseball. And I don't think they would have to change the team colors at all. Not that they would have to with a lot of other names I guess, either.
  4. I really like that! A nice blend that works and also represents the different eras of the franchise.
  5. I noticed the Disqus issue in the last month or 2 as well. It's super annoying because it was a good place to see corrections pointed out. I also would link to photos of the unis in action or if the years or uni pictured on here was incorrect. For an example, I noticed MLB.com has an article about the Tiger's 95 alternate today. I want to post the link and article for that uni on here, but because Disqus is not working now on the site, I am unable to. Hopefully this eventually gets addressed and fixed at some point.
  6. The first Griffey on SNES is stil one of my all-time favorite video games and SNES games. Loved the N64 ones too. I recently got into hacking the original and did an all-time best of teams with each team's best all-time players as well as doing an annual playoff teams version. But I digress, I love this new set and am happy to see most Brewers fans are happy as well.
  7. Except teams have been wearing non-white and grey uniforms dating back to 1901. You could argue non white or grey jerseys are just as traditional to be quite honest. Trends change, styles change, people change, times change. It's what sets different eras apart and makes each decade unique. It would be a boring world if it was just white and grey every year from 1901-2020. Wouldn't you say?
  8. I'm a huge Dodgers fan and getting knocked out in the 1st round stung this year, especially after we had the best regular season record ever in LA. But this comment made me laugh out loud! Hahaha! Good one!
  9. Although Randy spent nearly 6 full season in the Expos organization including his minor league career. I'd say Pedro developed with the Dodgers and Randy with the Expos if you look at who they signed with, spent all or most of their young minor league seasons with and who they came up with.
  10. I wouldn't. Not if we're talking about the organizations that signed/drafted and developed the players. Pedro signed with the Dodgers in '88 and spent 6 years/4 full seasons in the Dodger organization developing.
  11. The Dodgers still do it for any playoff games played at Dodger Stadium as well as opening day.
  12. 2009 actually. I actually am glad they brought the blue alts back at home as I have always liked them and think they look good with the pinstriped pants.
  13. Also saw this as a top story on Yahoo News this morning. Soooo, it got pretty decent press coverage. Hopefully, the brown happens at some point!
  14. Just want to chime in to say a team's colors don't always have to relate to the team name or mascot. Case in point: LA Lakers, San Jose Sharks, St Louis Rams, Minnesota Vikings, Miami Dolphins and at least a few others. So just because friars or padres wore brown doesn't mean the team has to, either. And I am a fan of bringing brown back to SD. Just playing devil's advocate here to make a point.
