  1. Well said. I think I was just thinking that there are probably a lot of Nats fans who haven't even been fans all 14 years especially since they stunk for so long when they first got to DC... but there are definitely die hard Nationals fans out there too.
  2. Call me crazy but, despite my preference for no alternates in the postseason even if the alternate is a better option, I can see and understand why a team would continue wearing a winning jersey. That kind of stuff can add some fun and fire to the fanbase even if it's all just superstitious BS in the end. I think we sometimes forget that jersey choices and the aesthetics aren't the most important thing to the majority of the fans and a good postseason run is as much about the fans as it is about the team and if they're all having fun thinking that those navy alts are bringing them good luck then let them enjoy it. Same with the baby shark song thing and other silliness over the years with other teams. This is still just a game meant to entertain. Exactly my point... true Nationals fans (which seems weird to say considering they've been in DC for just 14 years) aren't gonna care about which jersey is being worn. All they're thinking about is how to win one more series.
  3. I think it's just more of a set rule with the navy caps that they've stuck with for a while now. They wear the navy caps vs red capped home teams regardless of what the other team decides to wear.
  4. Ever since Jeter came along they only wear black jerseys on Fridays and Saturdays, with a few exceptions along the way. This is a major upgrade from the Loria years where their black jersey was possible almost every game and was usually worn on the road more than the road grays were. As long as they continue to have a set schedule on when to wear the black jerseys I'm happy with that as at least it regulates it to a degree.
  5. Wearing the blue jerseys is another big feedback that the fans have given them and, if they've heard the feedback on the black jersey, then I'm sure they've heard the feedback on the blue jersey so I'd imagine it eventually happens BUT I would think they'd actually wait until they make a new blue alternate with a wordmark first. The blue jersey gets a lot of love for it's color but it's clearly intended to be a practice/spring training jersey in its current form so I feel like they'll make more of an in-game version first.
  6. FWIW, a local Marlins beat reporter says the team is aware of the feedback regarding the visibility issues of the black on black jerseys but he hasn't heard anything about them giving in to any changes just yet. I doubt any changes happen in 2020 but, contrary to popular opinion, this new ownership has been more open to fan feedback than the previous knuckleheads so maybe if there's enough feedback on this then a tweak does eventually happen.
  7. He was still just one person with one opinion. It's ok to disagree with Tony on this.
  8. It's such a minor thing but I think the Kelly blends in with the grass too much. The darker forest green looks way better against the grass background.
  9. I have several immediate thoughts when I read this... 1. Were the uniforms really even finalized back then? He might not have seen more than unfinalized prototypes. 2. What's wrong with this guy thinking about uniforms in his decision making process when he's potentially about to set up his family and his future grandkids financially for life? 3. How awesome is it that this guy is thinking about uniforms in his decision making process when he's potentially about to set up his family and his future grandkids financially for life??? Maybe Manny is a little bit of a uniform junkie like most of us? That's a cool thought.
  10. Eh, the Kelly Green alternate is great but I'd only approve of it here if their home uniform wasn't already so great. Or maybe if they were the road team and wore this alternate. Home game, one game playoff, with home uniforms that great and classic? Stick to the home whites.
  11. Yeah I have no memory of this but it's great...
  12. Just my guess but I think the Rays yellow is just new graphics for social media. I've seen plenty of teams whose social media varies the color schemes quite a bit but it never translates to any uniform or other color changes. The social media people just seem to be more willing to try different takes on the color schemes.
  13. Eat healthier and you'll notice the difference in color.
