  1. And the only teams with more wins than the Nats since 2012 are the Yankees and Dodgers.
  2. True. The Chicago Metro Area has a pop of over 9M, so if they can attract a third of baseball fans there they'll be fine. It just doesn't seem they can maintain that with that stadium. It took them a WS win just to get them up to a 36K per game avg the following year, and it went down hill again since then. Compare that to the lovable loser Cubs who pack Wrigley every year no matter what. Even more so now with the recent success.
  3. Orioles moving seems unthinkable, but rumors are already circulating. We'll see what happens when Angelos sells the team and the lease is up in a couple years. As far as the White Sox, they did threaten to move in the past. From what I understand, the city still hasn't recouped the money from financing that stadium. I just don't see how they can compete with Wrigley and the Cubs unless they counter with a great new stadium and location. That's what they said about the Colts.
  4. My bold prediction is Portland and Vegas will get the two expansion teams (if the A's don't move to either). Montreal will get the Rays and Nashville will get the O's. The White Sox will look to move to Charlotte in 10 years after the city refuses them another stadium. Thoughts?
  5. The blue script gives the overall look a good balance of colors. The red crown/blue bill cap would go perfect with this.
  6. The navy script alt was introduced last year. They haven't lost in the playoffs yet in these, and it looks like they're going to stick with them.
  7. Either way, looks like yet another blue and red scheme in MLB. Best case scenario is they go with light blue/navy/red like the Titans. HEAVY on the light blue.
  8. Looks like they've already decided on Nashville Stars as the name, in honor of the Negro League team: https://www.tennessean.com/story/sports/2019/08/28/nashville-stars-mlb-expansion-team-tennessee-dave-stewart/2133502001/ I posted this in the MLB expansion thread as well: https://boards.sportslogos.net/topic/113047-portland-and-other-mlb-expansion-name-possibilities/page/20/#comments
  9. Also looks like they're already committed to the name Nashville Stars, after the Negro League team: https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.tennessean.com/amp/2133502001
  10. https://bucswire.usatoday.com/2019/09/20/antonio-bryant-once-again-calls-out-the-buccaneers-for-their-ugly-jerseys/
  11. I must say, the flat finish helmets look clean and classy with the pinstripes.
  12. "DB" is Darwin Barney, one of the investors for the potential team. My initial reaction is why not just keep the name going? But thinking about it a little more, would anybody be upset if they leave the Athletics brand with Oakland for a potential team in the future? How many cities does the name need to bounce around to? If any of the A's cities deserve to keep the identity, it's Oakland.
