MLB 2016 Changes

Recommended Posts

I was in a store the other day and I saw a bunch of Dodgers road jerseys (the one that says Dodgers) but they had blue piping on the sleeves.  Was this a mistake or are they changing this year?

 

Also, 2016 will be the 50th anniversary of Angel Stadium.  Are the Angels going to wear a patch for that?

The news of the chromaflex neck batter logo pisses me off, as a jersey collector i always loved to see the embroidered batter logo up close, and see the color matching of the batter logo and the team colors.

 

take a look of how bad chromaflex looks on a jersey compared to twill logos:

I actually like the Chromaflex for the postseason patches...but everything else (wordmarks, numbers, sleeve patches, batterman) needs be sewn.

I'm a chromaflex fan for this, and also the BP/replica jerseys as they do now.

 

That said, no place on an regular season uniform;

Execution of the gold is still horrible and completely muddles the Twins look IMO

Now that a full year has passed along, what does everybody think of the addition of Kasota Gold to the Twins' home jerseys? 

 

It looks like crap especially the otherwise classic cap...

I hate the gold for the Twins. It's so unnecessary. And they didn't even bother adding it to the Road and Alts (new red one excluded.)

 

I don't like how they dropped the pinstripes either. All they needed to do was invert the red and navy in the wordmark on the old jersey and they would've had a great update.

 

 

I also think they should bring back the m hat for the road unis.

I always assumed gold wasn't added to the road uniforms because the color is so specific to Target Field. Seems logical to me, anyway, even if it makes the entire uniform package inconsistent.

 

I do agree, however, on the M hat. Love that hat.

I don't think I can post pictures yet but I've seen the new patterns for the Stars & Stripes uniforms. Better than last year but I'm still not a fan. It appears teams will be wearing the Digital Woodland Camo for Memorial Day instead of the Digital Desert Camo they have been wearing the past few years. It will still the Marine Corps pattern.

Seems like it's still unpopular with the folks here. If you had a say in it, then how would you incorporate gold in their set? 

I wouldn't.

I didn't understand the gold addition when released and still don't see its conceptual purpose in the vacuum of designs on generic backgrounds, but I flew to Minneapolis and saw a three game set when the Astros were there last August and thought it looked great in person and complimented the ballpark and surroundings perfectly. Feel free to file away to unpopular opinions!

Sometimes, I really don't mind when the home set is a bit different if it ties in with the ballpark. The Giants sort of do that with the cream jerseys and gold dropshadow on their home set, and it ties in with the park perfectly. 

 

Still though, they should've kept the pinstripes IMO.

It's okay, but for the home jerseys, I'd rather they stuck to their previous design or go all-out with their home throwbacks.

I think the Fish are a few tweaks from being good. The font is pretty poor, the inconsistent color usage with the "M" in the wordmark through the rest of th text is jarring, and the white wordmark on the gray jersey sucks. Change those things, and I think this set has some potential.
