MLB 2016 Changes

Recommended Posts

Swap the colors on that word mark and numbers, add a gold outline to the front number, and that's absolutely PERFECT.

The gold is a bit too dominant on the jersey in my opinion.  It could be serviceable as an outline. 

 

Not at all a fan of the crown on the hat, though.

It's perfect for a bp cap.

Royals in gold lettering- WS win

Mets in silver lettering- Looking like :censored:any day

 

Fixed that for you.

 

The silver in the Mets uniforms still looks terrible to me in all applications.

Agreed.  It's just awful, the lone misstep in an otherwise gorgeous uniform set.

And it's a damn tragedy they decided to wear it in the World Series. I think Game 1 even. 

 

I might launch a debate here, but I think the league should outlaw alternates in the World Series if not all of the postseason. Also, you shouldn't wear an alternate on Opening Day, Rays.

Im personally a fan of having alternates restrained to daytime games and Friday nights during the regular season, and not at all in the post season.

 

Gladly surprised when I went yesterday that the Pirates were wearing white.

Unpopular opinion, maybe, but I LOVE that grey lettered mets alt.

Still conflicted in my mind about alternates.  I prefer white/gray to be the default, but some alternate uniforms just look objectively beautiful.  It was very difficult last fall to argue that they should be banned from postseason when the Astros looked so friggin' good.  I really had a major breakthrough this winter when the Spring Training uniforms were released and the Yankees' one was so clean and beautiful that... I might actually be fully accepting of an alternate in that style.

 

I don't know who I am anymore.

I love alternates, well, some of them. The ones that aren't good don't make me think all alternates should be banned. Just like there are also bad white and gray unis there are bad alternates. So I don't mind that they exist. But I do believe they shouldn't be worn on Opening Day. That shouldn't be a "rule" because some teams might be able to get away with it... but I wish more teams would think twice about doing it.

It's going to be a pain but I'm going to be keeping track of the Diamondbacks uniforms this year.  Including the hats as well.  Might be a fun but daunting task.

Giants are going with matte helmets.

 

Ugh.  Probably won't be a fan of that look.  Regular helmets are nice..

Your poor soul, you'll be a shell of yourself come October.

But anyways this should give you a head start, they've announced their pre-planned uniforms for their first homestand and they've included everything in there, only repeating one combination...

I definitely tend to favor primaries in all sports...and white vs. gray in MLB.  With 162 games, though, I certainly feel there is room for some use of alts.  And I do like some.  Seeing the A's wear a solid green jersey on occasion can add some color, if you will, to the season.  That said, I feel that MLB is all about tradition and I'd really rather see primaries in the postseason.  If it were up to me, we'd have rigid rules:

  • One alternate jersey.
  • Limit of 16 games per team to wear an alt (i.e., 10%)
  • Home team's choice.  That is, if the home team wears an alt, the road team cannot.  No color vs. color.  I have been to a navy-vs-navy MLB game and it was terrible to look at.  I know it's not basketball, but there really is no reason that should ever happen.  And red vs. navy may not be as bad, but I'd rather not even draw the line.
  • No alternates in the postseason. Red/white/blue bunting and white and gray uniforms.

I liked the Royals gold uniforms last night but I would not want to see them become the primary. I still like the current primarys better. Would not mind these being used as an alternate though.

Agreed.

 

I have no problem with alternates but I don't like seeing them in the postseason. I also don't mind seeing them in the All Star Game.
