    This is such a garbage division. Hopefully they'll use balanced schedules, but the fact the fact they're splitting FL and AZ into subleagues doesnt reassure me. Introducing your 95 win San Diego Padres.

    Look at a map of the venues, they created the divisions geographically.  This is all still up in the air, and due to the unprecedented nature more is on the table than what we would expect.

     

    Would you rather have no baseball, or at least something like this?


  2. USA Today's Bob Nightengale is reporting this morning another possible 2020 MLB option.

     

    https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/mlb/columnist/bob-nightengale/2020/04/10/mlb-realignment-league-considers-radical-move-for-2020-season/5128935002/

     

    Teams would be realigned based on their Cactus and Grapefruit League homes.  Teams would report back to spring training sites for 3 weeks of training before starting the season (whenever that may be)

     

    GRAPEFRUIT LEAGUE

    NORTH: New York Yankees, Philadelphia Phillies, Toronto Blue Jays, Detroit Tigers, Pittsburgh Pirates.

    SOUTH: Boston Red Sox, Minnesota Twins, Atlanta Braves, Tampa Bay Rays, Baltimore Orioles.

    EAST: Washington Nationals, Houston Astros, New York Mets, St. Louis Cardinals, Miami Marlins.

     

    CACTUS LEAGUE

    NORTHEAST: Chicago Cubs, San Francisco Giants, Arizona Diamondbacks, Colorado Rockies, Oakland A’s.

    WEST: Los Angeles Dodgers, Chicago White Sox, Cincinnati Reds, Cleveland Indians, Los Angeles Angels.

    NORTHWEST: Milwaukee Brewers, San Diego Padres, Seattle Mariners, Texas Rangers, Kansas City Royals.

     

    My only concern in Florida is the rainy season over the summer and the possibility of PPD's.  Youd have to lean towards many early afternoon games instead of evenings.  I also presume the heat in Arizona would hurt too since some evenings are still 100+ degrees.

    That's only the color of a dolphin if there was an oil spill in the area.

    Not saying Miami needed it, but that gray looks pretty close to anthracite

    The Orange alternates look decent, but I’d rather have the true creamsicles, at this point, and they wouldn’t go with two orange options. I’d really love to see the white creamsicles return, too.

    My thoughts to a "T".  They know the throwbacks will sell, once used again (as soon as 2021 if rumors are true).  I too kinda hope for white throwbacks this time around, since we've seen the creamsicle orange ones already.

     

    For visibility, i would avoid the 1976 whites (orange numbers outlined in red) and go for the 1977-96 (red numbers lined in orange).  Not sure what pants color i would prefer.

    So with the Falcons and Bucs being unveiled here is what I think we could expect from the others:

     

    Browns: More or less a reverting back to the set prior with some minor changes (keeping the more vibrant orange, removal of carbon fiber stripe, full stripes on brown/white/orange pants)

     

    Chargers: Keep the change from last year with powder blue home, removal of navy from the set, white jerseys have powder numbers outlined in yellow, powder blue pants to wear with white jerseys, “blocks” on jerseys removed so the stripe is the bolt.

     

    Rams: Basically move to their royal and yellow set but it stays in line with new branding and is underwhelming.

     

    Colts: Move to new template, helmet logo widens out. 
     

    Pats: CR becomes primary but with grey pants with r/b/r stripe. White changes to inverse of CR with r/b/r stripes on shoulders, wear with the blue CR pants

     

    I am most curious of what a Chargers alternate could look like if the have an alternate and a throwback.  Some kind of navy blue with bright blue and yellow accents (think neon electricicty feel) is something that comes to mind.


  6. Ooof, here I go feeling like my Bucs would be the team that flubs it all up but the Falcons sal "hold my beer".

     

    It pains me to ask, and it wouldnt have helped from the neck down, but a red satin helmet mightve been a better option.

    They’re easy on the eyes unlike Bucs 1.0

    Yeah but the execution of the helmet "fade" hurt the entire brand.  If it wasn't such a harsh transition from gold to matte it might've saved it

    Why do I feel like this is an upgrade?? I actually really like the White and Black version. The red gradient one though is horrendous 

    I’ll wait for the full reveal but I kinda agree with you.  I’m intrigued by the red gradient jersey but skeptical about it too.

    Is the black stroke around the numbers thicker than the s.b. set?  On the fanatics site they look thicker but in the player pics they don’t. Maybe it’s just the fanatics jerseys? Their (fanatics) jerseys always seem to be a little off, the images at least.

    Is Fanatics using real photos or digital renderings?  That could explain quite a lot.

     

    Pretty sure Fanatics is using digital renderings

    There was another mock-up with the red and white jerseys, but also a pewter shirt with gold numbers. I think gold numbers on that last jersey would look pretty nice, even if that color isn't otherwise reflected in their brand.

     

    I'd also expect the numbers to be more custom than those.

    I kinda hope the alternate numbers might look better as white with red accent.  Also agree that the font will be customized a bit from standard block, but not too crazy.


  11. So Justin Turner suggests something to help games be shorter...lets do a HR derby instead of extra innings

     

    Dodgers' Justin Turner proposes HR derby to end extra-inning games

     

    Quote

    "Instead of playing 17 innings, you get one extra inning, you play the 10th inning, and no one scores, then you go to a home run derby," Turner said Wednesday on Spectrum SportsNet. "You take each team's three best hitters and you give them all five outs and see who hits the most homers."
