  1. So the MLB and MiLB Professional Baseball Agreement (PBA) is set to expire after the 2020 season. This is the agreement that outlines the single affiliation model and states the 160 MiLB clubs from AAA to Advanced Rookie will have an MLB affiliate. MiLB hopes to have a new agreement in place by the end of the winter meetings, as to not have it hanging over their head the entire season (link). As analytics continue to become more and more prevalent in all aspects of the games, MLB appears to be positioning for a more streamlined and efficient minor league system that allows them to better train, develop, and evaluate prospects. Commissioner Manfred has even publicly said that MLB would like to see fewer affiliates and better facilities (link). It seems from current stadium issues (see Beloit), that MiLB has already succumbed to MLB demands to increase stadium facility requirements. Apparently, last time this occurred was in 1992 and subsequently MiLB was met with multiple teams relocating and other restructuring. Regardless, if there are stricter facility rules, we could see some current MiLB stadiums deemed ineligible and could thus force teams to seek new stadiums or relocate. Has anyone heard any rumors as to developments of the PBA for 2020? What stadiums do you think would be most at risk? And if MLB gets their way, even though MiLB is opposed to reducing the 160 required affiliation number, what do you think are some likely scenarios that MLB and MiLB agree to restructuring? How would this affect the current league set up in the minors?
  2. Hi everyone, I hope you're all enjoying the MLB postseason. Picking up where we left off last year with our MLB City Edition series, @Paul Lucas, @Carolingian Steamroller, @Victormrey, @MJD7 and I return with another collaboration, this one inspired by the NBA's Statement Edition uniforms, first introduced for the 2017-18 season. This project is similar in spirit to that series in that we've looked to each Major League Baseball team's unique visual history and combined elements from local culture in order to produce new designs that we hope each team's fanbase would instantly embrace. I'll start today with the California Angels Anaheim Angels Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim: Upon visiting Angels Stadium for the first time a few weeks ago, l was surprised to learn the much-maligned-on-these-boards Disney era Angels gear is actually a favorite among fans of a certain age! For that reason, I decided to lean into that for my design but with a twist, using the color scheme of the '90s era Mighty Ducks. C&C appreciated!

  4. Hey everyone, A few weeks ago in the MLB changes for 2019 thread, @NicDB suggested the Brewers wear their powder blue road throwbacks when they play AL opponents. That gave me the idea that it might be interesting if both the Brewers and Astros, the other team with a past life in a different league, wore special throwback uniforms for inter-league play. But rather than straight throwbacks, I thought it might be more fun if each team received a new home and road alt that paid tribute to their full history in their original league, incorporating elements from many different eras, even the less popular and more short-lived ones. And with that, I came up with some designs and I'm pretty happy with the results. Enjoy! BREWERS HOME: BREWERS ROAD: - The Brewers home set is a pullover design that uses a simplified version of the home script and numbers from their '94-96 look, and the BiG logo makes an appearance as a sleeve patch. - The home cap features a gold front panel and their '97-99 cap logo in royal blue. - The road set is powder blue and uses the team's 1990-93 script in yellow, as a nod to the team's '70-71 uniforms. - The road sleeve stripes are from their 1970 road set, a holdover from their Seattle Pilots days. ASTROS HOME: ASTROS ROAD: - The Astros home set is a pinstriped version of their orange-heavy '71-74 uniforms. The star on the cap and jersey design is from their '94-99 era look, and the number style on both sets comes from their 1975 uniforms. - The road set uses the dark cream color from their '83-93 road uniforms and a simplified version of their '01-12 "Houston" script. - I didn't want to go full tequila sunrise for either set, so I used a variation on the sleeve stripes from their '80-93 uniforms. C&C appreciated!
  5. Welcome to Ty & Titan’s Super Jersey Collection! In this thread, we’ll find out what every MLB team would look like if they kept ALL of their jerseys, and simply updated them. As a result, each team would have a plethora of uniforms to choose from for their 162 game schedules. I have a few rules for deciding which jersey to use/update. - Each team is limited to TWELVE (12) main rotation jerseys. Yes. Twelve. - Really old jerseys must be updated in some capacity. However, there are a few exceptions. - Jerseys that look too similar to a previous incarnation must be considered updates. Therefore, they cannot co-exist. - Teams can use jerseys from a previous iteration of their franchise, or from another franchise with the same name. For example, the current Milwaukee Brewers can use updated versions of the uniforms worn by the old Milwaukee Brewers that existed from 1894-1901, despite them being separate franchises. - New jerseys can also be added. Alright, with that out of the way….let’s get this started! Here’s a quick link to each team’s jersey collection: AL EAST Baltimore Orioles Boston Red Sox New York Yankees Tampa Bay Rays Toronto Blue Jays AL CENTRAL Chicago White Sox Cleveland Indians Detroit Tigers Kansas City Royals Minnesota Twins AL WEST Houston Astros Los Angeles Angels Oakland Athletics Seattle Mariners Texas Rangers NL EAST Atlanta Braves Miami Marlins New York Mets Philadelphia Phillies Washington Nationals NL CENTRAL Chicago Cubs Cincinnati Reds Milwaukee Brewers Pittsburgh Pirates St. Louis Cardinals NL WEST Arizona Diamondbacks Colorado Rockies Los Angeles Dodgers San Diego Padres San Francisco Giants
  6. I'm not exactly sure what to call this as it's a bit different from the Unused Logos/Jersey thread. This is forgotten history about team name changes, logo rumors and relocation that never -- that kind of stuff. I bring this up for a couple of reasons and I'll illustrate my point to hopefully set the tone of the thread. I was researching the late '80s NBA expansion of Miami, Orlando, Minnesota and Charlotte and found a few interesting nuggets in this article. I knew about the Charlotte Spirit nickname as it wasn't well received, the I found the Florida Heat nickname bit interesting and pretty much forgotten without having to dig pretty far back into news archives to find the reference. Additionally there was The Athletic article yesterday about the Dallas Mavericks aborted rebranding in the late 90s before Mark Cuban bought the team and branded them with their current look. I also found a few mentions in other articles of the possibilities of the Spurs moving to Miami to accommodate both Expansion bids in Florida, since the NBA was originally set to expand only by three instead of four teams. Anyways, I'd love to discover more lost history in other sport leagues since basketball is what I know best. What do you have?
  7. As a Ranger fan, the current logo and uniform set leaves a lot to be desired. "Rangers" is nowhere to be found on any of the uniforms, the "TEXAS" lettering isn't unique and resembles the font used by the Angels, the primary T logo on our hats doesn't even match the T on the jersey...and on and on. These are obviously just my own opinions, so I wanted to create something to look at to put my mind at ease. (First time concept creator here) First change was the shade of red and blue. I wanted to match the exact shades from the Texas flag. The star in the circle will probably bring some "too much like the Astros" criticism, but I think Texas needs to claim this symbol. It is, after all, what the actual Texas Ranger law enforcement badge looks like... I took a lot of inspiration from the 1972 original logo (below). I never liked the "Rangers" lettering from it (thought the lowercase made it look too cartoony), but I did like the "TEXAS" font used. As a team representing the entire state, this font just screams Texas, and I think using something a little more generic (like our current uni's) is a missed opportunity. I also took the idea of the drop shadow from this logo. The vast majority of teams just use a simple outline, but the drop shadow is unique. The sleeve hat-on-baseball logo is obviously a colorized version of the below. Another unique bit of imagery I wanted to bring back...in the inaugural game, the team wore Stetsons on the field during the anthem for God's sake. Lastly, for the alternate I wanted to recreate the 1957 version of the Texas Ranger badge (below). By all accounts the actual Rangers didn't like the design of the badge, but visually it's great. Let me know what you guys think. Thanks!
  8. Okay, so it has been seemingly FOREVER since I posted anything resembling a concept on these boards. But I've been playing around with something for a few minutes here and there for probably two weeks now, and I'd love to get some feedback to know if I'm potentially onto something or just wasting my precious free time. I've always been a fan (like many of you it seems) of the Rays' original Devil Rays identity, but I thought it missed the mark in a few areas. I loved (still do) the gradient. But there were far too many colors in the logo(s), and the uniforms seemed to miss the opportunity to "own" the bright colors by overuse of black and purple. Some parts of the logos also use too many fine details or super thin strokes. So here's what I got. Right now it's something of a visual dream journal. I apologize for not taking the time to split all the elements into separate files yet. Basically, I dropped the black for a dark purple. I kept the gradient but had the gamut run from yellow to aqua-ish to purple. Purple would be primary, with yellow secondary and aqua tertiary. Light purple only in highlights in the logos. Thickened/simplified some elements and strokes. Have an idea of where I want to go with uniform striping. Started playing with a custom number font, but not sure it can work. Dropped the "Devil," obviously (though I never disliked it). Can't pick a preference of uniform wordmarks. So let me know what, if anything is worth continuing. I appreciate all comments ahead of time. Thanks guys!
  9. Hey everyone, I'm excited to share this refresh for my hometown Seattle Mariners! I think the Mariners have an outstanding identity (compass rose, beautiful colors) but currently have lots of execution issues (endless outlines, disjointed elements, and strange line weights). I tried to combine the current and retro wordmarks, and keep it all a bit simpler. The main uniforms have wave striping on the sleeves, and drop shadows on the text. The arched lowercase "Seattle" on powder blue is inspired by early Mariners road jerseys. The Sunday alt is based on the inaugural uniform. The jersey template is by rsaline. Here's a quick edit of the Mariners website: Please, let me know what you think! Thanks for looking!
  10. I have created a forum for all Red Sox fans here in the SportsLogos.net community. Let's go Red Sox!
  11. Since Cincinnati is entering its post 150 year era, I have been messing around with a new Mr. Red logo for a new uni set and this is what I came up with. I have always thought that the Mr. Redleg logo just looks like he is lolly-gagging (spelling?) everywhere. Mr. Red always looked more aggressive and ready for action. Here's my take on him. He would wear whatever uniform he is being being featured on. Let me know what you think, and I'm still looking for ways to make it look more polished.
  12. I've seen this idea get bounced around for a thread and in the wake of the demise of the AAF, I feel now is a good time to discuss how an alternative league can potentially survive (and with a few strokes of luck, even thrive). While I'm focusing on alternatives to the Big 4 sports leagues in North America (NFL, MLB, NBA and NHL) as that is what I know, discussing alternatives to leagues outside of North America is obviously welcome. As for a potential alternative (American) football league, here are a few starters that would help IMO: 1. Have a secure source of funding and be willing to lose tens of millions of dollars to start. 2. Don't try to beat the established leagues right off the bat. After all, you have to prove that you can stick around as the longest lasting league since the NFL-AFL merger was the United Football League. 3. Maintain a smaller staff compared to an NFL team. This is obvious. Keep expenses down as much as possible. 4. Get a TV/streaming contract. Streaming is the next evolution of TV but get a TV contract because not everyone can access Internet fast enough to stream. Clearly this is nowhere near a complete list of steps necessary to establish a foothold in the sports market but it's a start.
  13. NOB = Name on Back of jersey NNOB = No Name on Back of jersey A staple of the MLB uniform nearly 60 years has been the addition of the player’s name on the back of the uniforms. In 1960, the White Sox were the 1st team to add names of the back of their uniforms. By the end of the 1960s, a few other teams, such as the Reds, Cardinals, and Orioles, added names to the back of their uniforms. However, most teams remained NNOB. By the end of the 1970s, most of the teams had NOB on their uniforms. In 1979, the NL had a rule requiring all teams to have NOB on their away uniforms. The AL did not adopt such a rule. By 1990, every team except the Yankees had NOB on their away uniforms, although a few (most notably the Red Sox) remained NNOB on their home jerseys. With a few exceptions, every team (except the Yankees) continues to have NOB on their away jerseys to this day. Let’s breakdown each team’s NOB on jersey history. First the American League teams. White Sox – The team that started the trend in 1960. However, only the road jerseys had NOB as the home whites remained NNOB. Due to the Sox changing their uniforms every 5-10 seasons (until 1991), I don’t know if they had NOB in 1964 (when they switched from road grays to powder blue), 1967 (another road uniform change) or 1969 (when they went back from powder blue to gray). In addition, the White Sox would go back and forth from NOB to NNOB though the 1990s. http://exhibits.baseballhalloffame.org/dressed_to_the_nines/uniforms.asp?league=AL&city=Chicago&lowYear=1960&highYear=1971&sort=year&increment=9 In 1971, the White Sox had yet another uniform change, with red as the prominent color. These uniforms (plus the road powder blues) had NNOB. Angels @ White Sox from 1974 In 1976, the White Sox changed again to an early 20th-century inspired look with navy blue as the prominent color. NOB of jersey returned with this look, which lasted through the 1981 season. The 1982-1986 “Winning Ugly” uniforms also had NOB. In 1987, however, The White Sox had yet another uniform change which lasted through the 1990 season. Originally, the uniforms were NNOB but the road jerseys were NOB in 1990 (The final season of Comiskey Park). In 1991, the White Sox changed their uniforms again when New Comiskey Park/US Cellular Field opened (yes, I know the park has another name change in recent years, but I will keep calling it either New Comiskey or the Cell.) In reality, this look premiere sooner than intended and debuted during the last month of the 1990 season, due to how popular this look would become. White Sox @ Red Sox from 1990 (Red Sox clinch AL East) Mariners @ White Sox from 1990 (final game at Comiskey Park) Unlike their previous looks, this White Sox look has remained mostly consistent to this day. However, when these uniforms debuted, the home jerseys had NNOB while the away gray jersey and the black alt jerseys had NOB. In 1997, NOB were added to the home jersey, which have stuck ever since. Indians – Another team that has had different looks throughout its long history. Not sure when exactly the Indians added NOB to their jerseys. The earliest is at least 1968 as evidence of the all-star game that year where an Indians player was the starting pitcher for the AL. This Indians uniform lasted from 1963 to 1969. http://exhibits.baseballhalloffame.org/dressed_to_the_nines/uniforms.asp?league=AL&city=Cleveland&lowYear=1960&highYear=1975&sort=year&increment=9 1968 All Star Game @ Houston The Indians changed their uniforms multiple times in the early 1970s. Not sure if NOB remained. For most of the 1970s, the Indians were known for their bright red uniforms with the caveman-like font. Those uniforms had NOB. All of the Indians uniforms ever since had had NOB from the 1979-1985 look, the Charlie Sheen in Major League I & II look from 1986-1993, the World Series contending years of the 1990s & 2000s when their ballpark was known as Jacobs Field, to the current post-Chief Wahoo era of today. Tigers – The Tigers added NOB at least as early as the 1971 season and have remained on the team’s uniforms since. Not sure about 1969 or 1970, but they were still NNOB in 1968. 1968 World Series (Tigers @ Cardinals) 1971 All Star Game in Detroit Twins – Not sure exactly when the Twins added NOB to their jerseys. By 1977 (as seen from an episode of “This Week in Baseball”), the Twins uniforms had NOB. In 1987, the Twins had new uniforms and would win the World Series in their new look. The home jerseys had NNOB while the away grays had NOB. The home jerseys would have NOB in 1997. The Twins’ 2010 look and their recent look have NOB while their 1960s home throwbacks had NNOB. 1977 episode of TWIB Royals – The Royals added NOB to both their home whites and away powder blues in the 1978 season. All their other looks (from the 1985 World Series look to the BFBS 2002-2005 period, to what they wear nowadays) since then have had NOB, aside from their annual Negro League KC Monarchs throwbacks. Yankees – the only team never to have NOB on their uniforms and they’re not gonna start now. (Unless one counts those Players Weekend jerseys that each team dons from the past 2 seasons). It would be blasphemy if they ever do it. Ironic as they and the Indians were the 1st two teams to add numbers on the back of their jerseys in 1929. Red Sox – The BoSox were one of the last teams to adopt NOB, adding them to their road uniforms (which were brand new at the time, replacing the 1979-1989 look) in 1990. The 2009-2013 road jerseys and 2014-current road jerseys the Red Sox wear are also NOB. The iconic regular home jerseys have remained NNOB. Interesting enough, the Red Sox’ batting practice/spring training jersey from 2011 (not sure if they still where them) have NOB. In 2007, the Red Sox wore a home jersey with NOB for the 1st time ever as the team wore green jerseys to honor Red Auerbach, the long-time Boston Celtics coach who died the previous year. Orioles – The Orioles were one of the 1st teams to add NOB to their uniforms. They worn jerseys with NOB as early as the 1966 season (not only the team’s 1st world series title, but also 1st year of the famous cartoon bird logo). All the Orioles looks from the pullover look of the 70s and 80s, the realistic bird look of the 90s and 00s and back to the cartoon bird look of today have had NOB. 1966 World Series (Orioles vs Dodgers) Blue Jays – The Blue Jays were a NNOB team in their 1st 3 seasons. In 1980, NOB were added to both their home and road power blues. Strangely, the NOB were removed from their road jerseys while remaining on their home jerseys the following season and would remain through 1988. Typically, some teams were NNOB at home while being NOB on the road, but the Blue Jays were the opposite. NOB came back on the road jerseys in 1989 when the Blue Jays got new uniforms, ditching the pullovers and powder blue for traditional gray. NOB have remained on Blue Jays uniforms since, from the 1997-2003 look to the hideous BFBS 2004-2011 period to their beautiful current jerseys heavily based on the classic 1989-1996 look. Rays – the Rays uniforms have always had NOB since debuting in 1998. Nothing much more to say. Angels – The Angels first added NOB to their jerseys in the 1978 season. According to the Mothership, the 1979 and 1980 uniforms had NOB. Yet that appears to be incorrect as the Angels had NNOB during those seasons. NOB jerseys would return in 1981 and all the Angels looks since, from the button-down 1989-1992 look, the “Angels in the Outfield” look of 1993-1996, the Disney pajamas look of 1997-2001 to their current look that dates back to 2002, have all had NOB on the jerseys. Angels clinch 1979 AL West Angels vs Orioles 1979 ALCS Angels @ White Sox from 1980 1981 All Star Game in Cleveland Athletics – The A’s had NOB on their jerseys as early as the 1970 season. Not sure exactly when the added them. All their looks from the early 70s dynasty years to the 80s pullover uniforms to the Bash Brothers look of the late 80s/early 90s to what they wear today have all had NOB. Rangers – the Rangers were a NNOB team when they were the 2nd incarnation of the Washington Senators. When the team relocated to the Dallas area in 1972, the uniforms had NOB. All the uniforms the Rangers have worn since, from the Nolan Ryan-era look to the playoff years of the 1990s and what the team wears today, have had NOB on the jerseys. Mariners – Except for the current fauxback uniforms that have been worn since 2015, the Mariners have always had NOB on their uniforms since debuting in 1977. Astros - the Astros added NOB on their jerseys in as early as 1971, when they switched their main color from navy blue to orange. All of the Astros looks since then, from the 1975-1986 rainbow guts to the 1980-1993 rainbow shoulders to the 1994-1999 shooting star look to the 2000-2012 brick red/black pinstripes look to what they wear today, have all had NOB on their jerseys Hoston Astros pitcher at the 1971 All Star Game
  14. Howdy there! Been a whole while since I've posted here. But lately I've been drawing up some vintage-inspired pennant designs for all the MLB teams! I love how pennants play with color, fonts, and trying to capture the essence of a team with a few simple shapes. I've had fun exploring different ways to showcase a team and elements of their brand, so to speak. First up, my Jays and the AL East! Boston - kept this extra simple, loved the way the text flowed into the home plate. Blue Jays - Had a eureka moment when I realized I could get the J and the bird's chest shape to line up well. I'm biased but they have the best look in baseball, so it was fun thinking up a retro design for them. Yankees - I wasn't going to give these guys a good nickname. I tried giving it an almost authoritarian look, the pinstripes and font lookin like 1930s-were-not-messing-around-mobster aesthetic. Baltimore - Kind of just split this into three sections, playing with shapes and of course a nod to the awesome Maryland flag. Rays - Was so happy with how this one turned out. They have the blandest brand in the big leagues, I wish they never got rid of the Devil Rays name and look. So I combined a bunch of eras basically! Cheers guys!
  15. Thought i'd do a fun little concept, integrating every team into the teams city name, making a kind of cool design using the teams' names. Not as much of a team concept, but more of a miscellaneous concept series. Let me know what you think and what city you'd like to see! First up, my original home, New York City, featuring every team in the NY metro area. I will start with the five sport cities/metro areas, then four, then three (if i get that far).
  16. I am starting "another" MLB thread, but the catch here is the concepts are modeled after the college baseball nike designs. This means a ton of options, fauxbacks, and non-traditional designs. The first team is the Houston Astros, a team many college programs model uniforms after. I took a page out of the NCAA's book and brought back the rainbow guts with a modern twist. Additionally, the more traditional options have added a shooting star above the team names. C&C are appreciated, but any edits will be about 2 months out.
  17. (Bear with me, there is a concept here) I’ve been speculating that, since the Brewers have been ramping up their use of the navy/athletic gold Ball in Glove logo, they might be testing the waters for a change in 2020 or beyond. Now, that itself is not really a subject for this particular board, but it spawned something that I think it is. As much as I could get behind the BiG back to stay, I don’t like the blah navy color. It’s dark and drab, especially under the very heavy Miller Park roof. I’d like to see the Brewers adopt a slightly tweaked version of the darker cap, with a dark royal that’s brighter than navy but darker than the light navy of the throwbacks. Click to embiggen: Here it is in context, with the current alternate caps: The color is inspired by the first Brewers’ color scheme, used from 1970 through 77. Thanks to @TruColor for the details: Check out this game-worn Hank Aaron cap: That’s what I’m thinking about. Dark enough that they can still sell navy merchandise. Dark enough to stand separate from the throwback gear, so the Brewers can still sell all the throwback merch they want. But still bolder, more vibrant, more blue than the boring navy. So whaddya think?
  18. https://mlbraleigh.com/ Thoughts? I really like the "R" logo.
  19. With the switch to Nike in 2020 its a good opportunity to reassess the direction I'd go for all 30 current MLB teams. So with any gilding the lily or further ado, here we go. AL EAST BALTIMORE ORIOLES Although I love the current Orioles look, I've recently become interested in a lot of the uniforms from the early days of the Orioles that deployed solid black piping, especially on the road. The Orioles brought this back when they went retro in the 90's but I don't think they properly committed to that look. To that end, I've gone with double width black piping at home and away and a tail-less version of their modern script. The sleeve design is a take on the smiling bird that adorned the sleeve in the 60's and we have an all black alternate reminiscent of the original Baltimore Orioles who latter became the Yankees.
  20. The deal between Nike and the Majors inspired this idea. For those who don't know it, Umbro is an UK-based soccer brand. It's one of my favourite sport brands, which reached their peak during the 70's, 80's and 90's, and now, after being bought and sold by Nike, they've been releasing great stuff for teams like Everton, Bournemouth, and many more. I think they've managed to create an unique look thanks to the use of their distinctive logo. That's why I've been thinking about creating a series re-imagining the MLB uniforms made by this brand. But since I'm not sure about it, here's an example of how it'd look like: Every team would have two main uniforms, up to two alts and one retro design. What do you think? Feedback appreciated!
  21. Very interesting. https://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/sports/columnists/nick-canepa/sd-sp-padres-brown-uniforms-canepa-20190110-story.html About freaking time. More at the article - give it a click.
  22. Seems as if we don’t have an MLB playoff thread. NL Wild Card game currently in progress, 1-0 Rockies in the 6th.
  23. I recently had an idea for an alternate Braves road uniform. It falls more in line the Atlanta's ivory home alternate throwback. I think it's got the classic, simple aesthetic with the more modern "ATL" moniker.
  24. Ooooops, don’t know why the text didn’t come through. Went to a Portland Diamond Project event today where six local designers presented concepts for a potential Portland MLB Franchise. Logos, hats, and uniforms. Great, creative concepts by everyone. Team Names - Portland Swifts - Portland Buds - Portland Pines - Portland Steelheads - Portland River Rats - Portland Californians, lol Pictures below:
  25. Well, after like 3 years of not posting anything on here due to starting college back in the day and other factors of life, I'm glad to be back. Back in 2015, I attempted to make an MLB redesign topic that was pretty below-average. Now I believe I have a solid template and a better understanding of the history of the MLB, so I'm gonna get back at it again, and do it right. So first off, lets realign the MLB again: NL East: Atlanta Braves Miami Marlins New York Mets Washington Nationals NL North: Cincinnati Reds Montréal Expos Philadelphia Phillies Pittsburgh Pirates NL Central: Chicago Cubs Colorado Rockies Milwaukee Brewers St. Louis Cardinals NL West: Arizona Diamondbacks Los Angeles Dodgers San Diego Padres San Francisco Giants AL East: Baltimore Orioles Boston Red Sox New York Yankees Tampa Bay Rays AL North: Detroit Tigers Cleveland Indians Minnesota Twins Toronto Blue Jays AL Central: Chicago White Sox Houston Astros Kansas City Royals Texas Rangers AL West: Los Angeles Angels Oakland Athletics Seattle Mariners Portland Pioneers Sweet and simple 32 team realignment. I hope you guys like what I've got in store concept-wise.
