MLB Changes 2015

Recommended Posts

So, unless I'm mistaken, the only thing left to be revealed in MLB is the new Giants alt. I'm personally hoping for a black jersey with orange lettering.

Well, unfortunately, the Cubs will be adding a memorial patch.

Idk, color-wise the new script looks a little too Florida Marlins-y for my taste. Guess I've just never been a fan of either's color schemes though.

The Marlins comparison is valid on the new wordmarks. I never had a problem seeing the teal "glow" but I understand why they changed it.

From time to time when I would see the late '80s set, it always surprised be how much the progression to the teal sets weren't as drastic as it seemed.

These new alts are like the missing link or "what could have been." I like it as a one-off, but not much more. The navy and teal were modern classics and this could lead to worse things down the road. Worse IMO, of course.

New alts reminded me a lot of these, and these were one of my least favorite uni changes ever:

Yeah, that entire late '80s/early '90s package is so devoid of any character or identity. It's something you would have seen in A-ball at the time.

I think they were an A-ball team back then. :) But to me, the Mariners are a navy and teal team. Plain and simple.

They were royal and yellow for 16 seasons. 2015 will be their 23rd season of navy and teal. Those are Mariners colors, no doubt.

Somewhere Phantom Dreamer is having a conniption. They didn't use his favorite trident logo and there are buttons everywhere.

I hated that Seattle uniform set, but for whatever reason, I liked the hats for the Bellingham Mariners...

The uniforms were the same, but I thought the "B" hat looked really good, whereas the "S" hat was atrocious...

Not exactly sure what the Mariners were going for here. The current uniform in the team's previous colors doesn't satisfy either the "modern classic" or the "old school" fans.

It's like the Brewers current set in royal blue/yellow or a brown/yellow version of the current Padres--what's the point?

I guess the mariners and nets had the same idea by combining different eras into one uniform

We've always referred to that set as the softball uniforms.

Horrible. As if the uniforms weren't bad enough, going with "M's" and a baseball as the primary logo should have caused someone in the marketing department to lose his or her job. The M's? Seriously?

How is M's any worse than A's?

And having a letter and drop shadow as the same color is so bad lol. It looks like it's just one giant letter with a skinny penciled-in one inside

It doesn't look as bad if the jersey wasn't stretched. If the piping is aligned exactly where it should on the jersey, then it will look fine. But because of it being a fabric with buttons and all, it will seem stretched out. That's the one flaw of a buttoned jersey

I think the Mariner's cream is fine on the unis, though the logos look worse with cream background.

Blue Jays succeeded because frankly they had a mod-classic look all the way to their font... this M's look is so Brewer'ish, there's nothing inspiring about it.

As for the Marlins comp, hey, the Miami Marlins gave permission to all when they went garish Caribbean stylz.

I am not crazy about the redesign of the wordmark on the home and road uniforms (especially the NOB), but since they've made an attempt to emphasize the teal now is the time to bring back the teal bill hat as the home primary and not just for the teal alt. Make it happen Mariners.
