  1. If anything, they could change the O on their current road script to match, making it like the home script where the A matches the hat logo.
  2. He didn't leave the Orioles on good terms (not by his fault, either) and I think that may have played into his decision some.
  3. Not sure why, but I like the Barons as a name. I was looking up the significance on why the hockey team had the name and found a couple interesting facts (that I'm sure some already know). The NHL Barons were only around 2 seasons (1976-1978) and were named after a minor league team that played from 1929-1973. Except they didn't become the Barons until 1937. Originally, they were the Cleveland Indians.
  4. I agree, I like the bird on the cap. The B would be nice for an alternate (replace the O's cap), but I don't think it's strong enough for the primary cap logo.
  5. I think it was a batting helmet logo only.
  6. I know I'm in the minority, especially with other Orioles fans, but I don't like the cartoon bird logo. It was a product of its (original) time - though I guess you could argue that the team has become a cartoon on the field. Also, the white-panel home hat, I can't describe how much I dislike it. It screams '70s softball and paired with a cartoon logo, just looks so amateurish. The road caps with the orange brim are tolerable for me, but man, I really wish they'd do away with both features. I've got my fingers crossed that when the rebuild is complete and the team is (hopefully) competitive again that we'll get an update.
  7. Yeah, it's missing quite a few, especially the full birds from the '50s and '60s. Also wonder why they didn't have the most recent bird I've thought this bird, but in the style of those first full bird logos that were just black and orange would be a good modern logo.
  8. Honestly, I don't think they're that bad. The post from @bosoxlover12 earlier sums up the changes I think would make a drastic difference: smaller numbers and outlined and smaller wordmark (or none at all). The number font isn't great, but I don't mind it. It's not previous-set Bucs or as bad as the Titans. Besides, in 5 years they'll be replaced.
  9. I really hope they don't choose a white helmet just so they can do throwbacks a couple times a season. If they pick white because it works better for the overall design, then fine. But choosing it for throwbacks is just a bad idea and very shortsighted.
  10. I've always though Seattle Sockeyes was a really bad choice for a team name. And it's a :censored:ing ugly fish on top of that. But it's still a million times better than Kraken. That said, I agree that I don't think this rumor is true.
  11. Not really a fan of the Pirates going back to the script font on the aways. Their standard whites and grays were perfect with their font and the script just feels like a generic 80s/90s font similar to teams like the A's, White Sox, Brewers, etc.
