  1. Is there a specific reason the Seattle Pilots aren't part of this?
  2. That's nice, where'd you find that? Was that supposed to be a real jersey at one point or is that just a fashion jersey? It's a prototype jersey from Russell. The name on the back is "PLAYER - 5." I picked it up off of eBay a few years back. I considered having the jersey re-named/numbered, but decided to leave it as-is. That's nice, where'd you find that? Was that supposed to be a real jersey at one point or is that just a fashion jersey? My first thought was Asian knockoff, because of the character wordmark. Yeah, I though it was a good idea to watermark my jersey photos. I'm not sure why, now...
  3. I think would have been a really sharp look for the 2003-2011 Marlins. The sleeve piping is a bit much, but I really like the teal lettering on the gray jersey.
  4. Seems appropriate, given today's news... I present to you, Astros legend Yogi Berra:
  5. Terry Crews, best known for being "that guy from the Old Spice commercials."
  6. That's a good one. I had no idea. He actually played for the Boston Braves and the Houston Astros; wow. The Tigers, too.
  7. I think I like the black helmets better. Too much of an overkill Those helmets were used in a pair of pre-season exhibitions against the New York Yankees, and never saw use during the regular season. If anything, this is more vexxing, because the Marlins obviously spent the money on the helmets... so why not USE THEM?
  8. So, you didn't want to use relevant facts to back up something you said. Makes sense. Well the relevant facts are these: 1. Marlins Park is 1 year old 2. Loria cannot sell the team until 2015 without giving a chunk of it back to the city of Miami. I don't think that Loria is even leasing the stadium... I cannot find any information on lease terms for the stadium. In either case, Loria is pocketing literally every dollar than comes into the park. It's not as if he's going to get a sweeter deal anywhere else. The Marlins are staying put for the foreseeable future.
  9. Then Loria went Loria and sold off the roster for Jeff Mathis and some magic beans. Now they're 29th in attendance (27th by percentage of capacity). I agree that their new stadium will keep the Marlins in town in the short term.
  10. I can't stand when teams don't match their batting helmets to their caps.
  11. I think it makes more sense to have the Expos in the NL East and move the Nationals into the AL East. Baseball in DC has always been an AL affair, and the Expos are an NL team.
  12. Omaha - Too small, I think. Montreal - While I would love to see the Expos again, I'd rather it not be as an AL team. Orlando - I would rather see the Rays leave Florida. San Antonio - Three teams in Texas? Portland - AAA left because of player apathy Las Vegas - Objectively the best choice. I never understood the whole fear of Vegas, considering that gambling could just as easily corrupt any team. Charlotte - Habitually incapable of supporting teams. Nashville - I think that Memphis might be a better choice. Anyhow, baseball in underrepresented in the American South. Newark - Like the Mets don't have enough problems. Long shots - I would like to see a team in Mexico or PR... but I don't see it happening. Raleigh/Durham is another option. Uh.... What? Marlins park is literally the smallest park in the MLB in terms of capacity. Or are you talking about OF dimensions? If so, then I think that a pitchers park would fit far better into the Ray's style of play than a band-box like Citizen's Bank.
  13. ESPECIALLY for modern teams. The Astros in a 1950s looking uniform is just plain silly.
  14. Also, the rest of the 1997 Cleveland Indians: Kenny Lofton He was actually traded to Atlanta before the '97 season for Grissom and Justice haha. A lot of people forget, because he ended up in Cleveland for the 1998 season via free agency. I thought that was a mid-season trade *checks Wikipedia* Oh well...
  15. Also, the rest of the 1997 Cleveland Indians: Jim Thome Omar Vizquel Roberto Alomar Sandy Alomar Kenny Lofton Oh yeah, and of course, there's:
  16. Speaking of the D-Backs: Troy Glaus: Matt Williams:
  17. Is Sports Specialties still around? I think someone here said they eventually were acquired by one of the big guys. Not sure which. They all have a version of this cap now. I don't have anything to back it up, but I think I remeber reading somewhere that Sports Specialties was acquired by Nike. http://www.nytimes.com/1992/06/20/business/company-news-nike-agrees-to-acquire-maker-of-sports-caps.html
  18. The color darkening is something I associate with the turn of the century, personally. That's about the time the Patriots, Jets, Bills, Sehawks, Rams,and Titans/Oilers "went dark."
  19. The Pats have played the Panthers a number of times, but only once in their Big Elvis jerseys. Montreal Expos vs. Oakland A's... 3 games only.
  20. The Marlins and Expos are both in the NL East, so they played each other a ton between 2003-2005. Now, the Expos vs. the Tampa Bay Devil Rays... THAT would be a good choice.
  21. Where do you think the Chinese fakes are made? What's more, companies can be pressured into improving the conditions of their factories and the integrity of their supply chain. Nike has not exactly turned their factories into day-spas... but they have done a lot more than you can expect of counterfeiters.
