  1. The overwhelming consensus among younger fans (on reddit in particular) is in favor of the Mets in black. I was relieved when they got rid of it in 2012, it was a win from a from a design and tradition standpoint. However, I have a strong nostalgic attachment to these uniforms and I wouldn't mind seeing them as an *occasional* alternate.
  2. Misleading thread title is misleading. (Edit: Now I look silly. But new thread title is better)
  3. Long time former poster here, haven't been around in a while. I stumbled upon this clickbait article claiming "MLB is finally updating the old team logos", which I somehow doubt is the actual truth. I was wondering if any of the posters here made these? Some of them look great! And if so I wanted to bring it to their attention to make sure they're getting credit. Apologies if these have already been posted.
  4. Well, they're not quite TATC but they're pretty close in terms of garishness. I will say though, I MUCH prefer these to all the special event/"holiday" uniforms.
  5. Mets & Phils wearing patriotic uniforms... both teams with a backwards American flag sleeve patch
  7. I remember the A's wearing Kelly green as recently as the late 90s. I can picture clear as day a baseball card from 1998 or 1999 of an A's catcher with a Kelly green helmet and chest protector. They supposedly switched to the darker forest green much earlier than that. (I think that card was before the rise in prominence of "turn back the clock")
  8. Mets look super weird with white names & numbers on the back.
  9. Not sure if it's been mentioned already (I don't recall but not about to dig back 77 pages)... We are most likely going to see new batting practice caps again this year. I just bought the 2016 authentic Mets bp cap (orange front panel/Mr. Met) for $10 at lids. I asked the cashier why it was so cheap and he confirmed my suspicion.
  10. Some unpopular baseball opinions: -Colored alternate uniforms are great. The more the merrier. -The Tigers and Yankees home uniforms are beyond boring. -The Brewers navy & yellow set looks great. -Teams with 2 different identities/color schemes (Brewers, Mariners, Diamondbacks, Padres) are smart. All about that $$. -The Mets should not wear pinstripes.
  11. It's not ideal, but are you saying it's better than having two city names in a team name (plus an "of")? I would disagree strongly. As I said, "California" is a compromise. I would personally favor "Anaheim" but anything is better than the cluster**** that is Los Angeles of Anaheim.
  12. Diamondbacks has always sounded very minor league to me. The fact that it can't fit on a uniform and has to be abbreviated as D' that makes it even worse. Rays is corny and weird, but Devil Rays was just as bad in a different way (also very minor league sounding). LAA of A is just inexcusable. Literally any of the other 3 past options is a 100% improvement. Los Angeles is the original name and has the literal translation of "angels". Anaheim is where they actually play and was their name when they won the WS. California has the longest history and is probably the best compromise.
  13. Diamondbacks tweaks coming for 2017. From the mothership...
  14. This. If MLB were to ever expand again (unlikely for the foreseeable future), it would almost definitely be the Montreal Expos and one more team. I would imagine top contenders for team two would probably be Portland, the Carolinas, Indiana, Tennessee, another Texas or NY team, or somewhere out of the continental US like Puerto Rico, before Las Vegas.
  15. I enjoy the logo almost solely from a nostalgia perspective, and the fact that it's multicolored and unique/retro looking. But the design really is not great, and if it were a new logo it would be widely hated. It's always looked like "elb" to me, which I've heard explained as "Expos le baseball", also I've conflictingly heard it's supposed to be "eMb" (which it clearly isn't) for "Expos de Montreal Baseball" or something. I don't know. I see how it's supposed to be an M, but it just so clearly looks like "elb" which really makes zero sense.
  16. I much prefer the two-color SD, I don't get all the hate for it (on the real jerseys and your concept). I would be thrilled to see the Padres adopt this look long term.
  17. The "Padres" script is hands down the best script they've ever had. Blue camo looks weird but it makes sense for them (if they insist on not being a full-time brown team that is ) I'm excited to see the home jerseys now, though as has been said numerous times, it'd be great if they used the same colors for home and away.
  18. As far as I can tell, the Mets originally switched to the light royal in 1998 to contrast more with the black.
  19. Would make for a nice fashion cap. Gonna look really odd seeing everyone in these for the actual game though.
  20. I've wanted the Tigers to add an orange bill to their home cap for years. (Best I could find...) However with the Astros, Giants, Mets, and Marlins all adding orange-billed caps in the last few years, it may be seen as trend hopping. But I thought of it before all that and it would really liven up their classic dull home look.
  21. Unpopular opinion: I LOVE the gold, and I hope they incorporate it on the road uni and alts for 2016. (The throwback is just that - a throwback, so I wouldn't expect it.) History, shmistory. I loved the Mets in black AT FIRST (granted I was 11). If the gold is really as unpopular as it seems here, it's only a matter of time before they ditch it. But as someone with no ties to Minnesota, I'm happy to see one of the numerous red/blue teams do something unique (even if the Nats did it first - which IMO is a weak critique because this looks NOTHING like that set.)
  22. I forgot about the White Sox, they'd probably be on my list as well. Tigers might have the best cap logo, but it's too small on the cap and I've always wished they had an orange brim.
  23. 1. Mets (though admittedly biased) 1a. A's home 2. Mariners teal-billed 3. Orioles home (yes with the white front panel. Wanna fight about it?) 4. Blue Jays
