  1. Add me to the "The Rangers should be the Rangers at home" crowd.
  2. I think it is possible. I think it's more likely that they release an all brown PADRES version for home down the line.
  3. Beautiful new set for the Brewers and the only thing I would change is replace wheatball with barrel man full time. 2 of the worst uniform sets in the majors got major upgrades.
  4. It's been streamlined a bit. It's still clearly an "m" and a "b". It looks clean and modern and still in line with the original logo. I really don't know what people have to complain about.
  5. This is my mock up of an arched version of the new wordmark. Please forgive the bad photoshop skills
  6. I agree, they went too plain on the homes when they had a great home template to work from that matches the look they went with. Definitely went in the right direction though with these uniforms.
  7. Catching up: 1) I think they made the right choice with just yellow for the SD and all brown for the cap. It will be interesting to see if they release any alternates on Saturday 2) I think the seats can definitely remain blue, but I would like to see maybe green walls and maybe some tan paint, or bringing the sandstone into the seating bowl a little more
  8. Not to mention San Diegans HATE it and have asked for years why we look like the Dodgers.
  9. I always found these uniforms super baffling. They weren't great before the All Star year and then they get even worse after. Then the All Star year when they have one year in the middle where they could have done a real set incorporating the yellow throughout, but they only had the home uniform and the actual all star road alternate that they only wore in the all star game, but not on the road. I don't know what the new brown jerseys look like, but the hat is already a huge improvement and the colors alone give this team a sorely needed identity again. The uniforms of the last 3 years were just, baffling. Crazy that someone thought that was a good idea.
  10. Like someone said, bell cap could still be around as an alternate, we'll see. From TV indoors to outdoors (Tingler did an outdoor MLBNetwork interview) to photos, the brown of the cap in no way looks black and looks distinctly brown. I'm hoping to be at the reveal next Saturday and I can't wait to see the full set.
  11. ^^^ potential post for "Unpopular Opinions" thread? Yes.
  12. In my mind, that's what it is now, but unifying the fonts across the uniforms will go a long way towards correcting this. I don't see why yellow can't be added to the roads and the blue alternate to complete the "fusion". I'm excited because anything at this point is going to be a step up, and this seems like slightly more than a cosmetic change.
  13. I think the Diamondbacks should own those colors, purple, turquoise and copper, but put them together in a way that looks pleasing to the eye. I think its possible, just the old jerseys didn't do that.
  14. Sorry if I missed it, but when do we expect these changes to be revealed?
  15. I happen to think that it would be in the team's best long term interests to find a brown uniform that works, and go forward with it. For one thing, plenty of people wear brown and it can be fashionable. Secondly it would be good to establish a unique identity and branding that sets them apart from the multiple blue and white teams in Major League Baseball. They could design an attractive brown uniform if they wanted to. However, I'm a pragmatist. Blue has been a part of the team's identity for over 20 years now and it honestly does have more mass appeal. There are probably just as many Padre fans who hate any idea of brown than there are who want it reestablished as the team's primary color. Whether those of us who want brown like it or not, blue is entrenched as the Padres color and its obvious that the team is not going to deviate. Its obvious that the current uniforms are a mess and that an improvement is needed. The home script is horrible an the whole set is a mishmash of different styles. So what remains to be seen is if with this "evolution" they come up with something that is simply more attractive on the field. If they go with an updated PCL look they could look quite nice. Even if they are simple, its not necessarily a bad thing. I completely support them cleaning up the current uniforms and I don't think that brown will ever come back except as perhaps a throwback alternate in the future.
  16. Definitely. Except for the number font that doesn't even match the number font that its trying to be from uniforms about 10 years after the 69 unis.
  17. Um, these are supposed to be Padres 1969 throwbacks to be worn tonight I presume: In my view, fail.
  18. Orange is a horrible color and a stake should be driven through its heart and its ashes should be sent to the four corners of the earth for burial.
  19. So this is what the tour guide at Chase field told us about why they changed, not saying its true though. Supposedly the manufacturer of MLB goods didn't like purple stuff because purple is one of the most expensive inks, plus its hard to get the color consistent. Secondly, the Rockies were miffed that they had a very similar color scheme and similar uniforms. Thirdly the Diamondbacks noticed that there are no teams that wear red in the NL West and that its the only division in baseball without a team that wears red.
