  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. When they were first introduced, I remember reading that the clubhouse hats were supposed to be the "official hat" worn during the post-game press conferences or what the player changed into after the game. I used to watch all of the Orioles post-game shows and remember seeing it a few times, but it never seemed to really catch on. As others have said it was a fashion cap that NE could label as authentic.
  5. Was this brought up in the summer? https://www.sportsbusinessdaily.com/Journal/Issues/2019/07/15/Leagues-and-Governing-Bodies/MLB-patches.aspx “We’re examining the patch, but clearly we have things to work through first,” said Noah Garden, MLB executive vice president of business and sales. “I’d say it’s inevitable down the road, but certainly not immediate. This is something that requires a fairly long runway. There are lots of things to take into consideration, but I think we will get there.”
  6. I know it's not traditional or whatever, but I do like the sleeve and collar piping on these.
  7. When/if the Rays ever figure out their stadium situation, I've wanted to see them go to a light blue/kelly green combo, along with adopting the fish ray identity.
  8. New VCU uniforms. The last few years they didn't have arm, collar, shorts, or waist trim, so a lot more gold this go-round.
  9. Asheville is known for a lot of things, especially beer. I don't know exactly where it ranks now, but at one point recently they had the most breweries per capita in the country. They also house the east coast ops for some of the larger national craft breweries. It's a great city for a lot of things and beer is one of them.
  10. I've always thought a kelly green and columbia blue combo would look good for the Rays. Maybe if they ever get a new, brighter stadium.
  11. I grew up with this wordmark; I even wrote my Os like that when learning cursive in 3rd grade, despite my teacher correcting me all the time. I love it, but I still think the one they have now is the one they should be using. I also like the one Davis is wearing in the post by @TheBigFiz21 and have wondered what an updated version of that would look like, but I keep coming back to the current one. Though, I do agree that I'd like to see more throwbacks. Not one as a full-time alt, but just more one-offs.
