  1. I won't fault them, (The Diamondbacks), for doing something that hasn't been done before. They are a team that can get away with it. I wish they had incorporated teal into all uniforms. It is either a team color, or it isn't. The red sublimation at the bottom of the pants is, well, interesting. Maybe I have seen too many horror/slasher films, but those pants look like they are soaked, and spattered in blood to me! That was my first take when seeing the back of the pants. Anyone else see that, or am I the only one who thinks they look like a crime scene?
  2. It isn't just the removal of the Friar from the jersey, it's the complete removal that I don't like, if in fact that's true. I suggested that the Friar could wear brown on a logo, as well as a sleeve patch. Wrote a friendly e-mail to the appropriate people to suggest as much.(Not pretending that they would care what I had to say). Point being that it would be a small touch, such as the Royals' gold crown, the Dodgers' red front number, and the Pirates' red bandana. It could have tied the eras together, and really, provided some context on why exactly they have a brown jersey and cap in their rotation. Their solution: Get rid of the Friar altogether, and also remove "Padres" from the home jerseys.
  3. In reference to the D-Backs "teal", I have always called it "turquoise", because I thought that was their intent in using the color. To kind of represent the strong Native American influence in the State of AZ, (design,art, jewelry, etc..) Anyway, I am excited to see what they have done. The Padres, on the other hand, have got me scratching my head. On one hand, I am thrilled with the fauxback. On the other, I'm a little uneasy that for the first time in their history, the word "Padres" will not appear on the home whites, and once again, the Swinging Friar has left the building. Curious as to their thought process here.
  4. This is cracking me up, haha. We are like kids waiting for Christmas:)
  5. Nordiques, last question from me:), then I will just wait for the unveilings. You said the Swinging Friar is gone from the home jersey for the Pads. Is he still part of the logo package? If so, any change to him? Thanks very much
  6. I can't wait to see what Arizona is doing, but I think leaving turquoise out of some combinations is a mistake. If I understand correctly, sometimes they will be_______, and other times they will be _______? They have decided to bring it back because they think it is a tie to the original look and fans will like it. Why not do it up right??
  7. Just wondering aloud...... is the Swinging Friar still monochromatic? Just blue on white? Or not to give too much away, will the Padres logos change at all?
  8. I will say that if the Padres were going to go to the trouble of adding yellow, they should have included it on the road and alt somewhere. That road is one of the most bland unis in the league. Happy about the fauxback though! Two questions I have for Go Nordiques, (and thanks for all the hints and info. This is always a fun time of year to find out what teams will do with their branding:) Especially since S.D. and Arizona are teams that I like. 1. Does the Padres' home script stay the same? 2. Do the Home and Fauxback have the same font? Thanks! Any info is appreciated:)
  9. I think TVIXX got it........ I too, think the Diamondbacks will just reintroduce Copper to go along with Sedona red and black. Purple and red together don't work at all, but if they work in some turquoise, I am more than cool with that. I like that comment about the Padres' alt "Making your blue eyes brown". Nice Thanks, Pads. It's a start.
  10. I loved the Dierker-Bagwell-Biggio era Astros uniform. Just navy blue, gold and white. I think the metallic worked well for it. Just my opinion. It got me thinking about the Astros, and all the looks they have had. Did that particular look, with the use of metallic gold, the futuristic font, and the abstract star logo, convey their brand better than anything else they have ever worn? Is it the "Astro-iest" Astros look ever? For me, I think it is. At least it goes to show what a great font and logo can do for an otherwise very simple look.
  11. Not only navy crown/red bill for the Angels, but I would like a yellow halo as well. I always thought that tied the look together. That little amount of yellow seemed to really set it apart from all the other navy/red teams.
  12. Just discovered this thread tonight, and I have to say, Great work! I am a Padres fan, and I follow the whole league, but especially the NL West. I have some favorites of your redesigns. Love what you did with the Phillies, with the return to maroon and light blue, and the reintroduction of Phil and Phyllis! Love that! The Brewers are great too, with reincorporating green into their scheme. As for the NL West, I like your take on the Diamondbacks. I think they made a mistake by completely dumping their original look, and going with red. Like the use of turquoise there The team that I was most surprised to like was the Rockies. Those just jumped off the screen at me They are a team that I didn't think could be improved on much, but you did it. The jersey fonts remind me of something you might see at a mountain resort, and the swooshes remind of ski tracks. I like that they have stayed the course on their colors since 1993, and you improved them immensely. As for the Padres, I am a fan who has long been disappointed by their lack of creativity, and their bland blue and white brand. (sand apparently was even too "jazzy" for them to use) Love the return of brown, paired with light blue. Again, great work !
