MLB 2016 Changes

It's gotta be either the DBacks or the Rockies.

People have mentioned the reasons for it being the DBacks already.

The Rockies have had those unis for their entire history and most people can't even tell the pinstripes are purple, so they could be changing.

They could also divide the board depending on how they use (or change) their colors.

And for anyone -- like me -- that had been hoping for the Brewers to go all-'80s/"MB glove" logo full-time, I think this rules out them making a 2016 change (at least in that particular direction direction):

I suppose I wouldn't really mind something like Sedona, Turquoise, and Sand. I'd still prefer the original colors by far, but I could be fine with a combo like that.

Really anything that's even a decent departure from the current would be best. I've tried to get on board with it, really tried, but just can't. I felt it was a set that was doomed from the start, mostly because of how far removed it was from an already successful brand, and the timing in which it was released; Houston was starting to wear thier brick caps more often as well as brick accessory at the time (not to mention the brick alternate jersey), and (though most can agree it wasn't the historically "right" look for them) they began to sort-of own the look of brick-black-tan. Then all of a sudden, Arizona dumps an identity that was undoubtedly and uniquely thier own for something much too similar to the Astros (not identical of course, just similar). Because of that, to me, the currents just never looked like "thier own" look. Even after the Astros have switched, I still look at Arizona and instantly think "brick Astros". That's not good for a brand, especially one which started out as having a look of it's own.

So the fact it might be (hopefully) Arizona is a good thing to me, and what I feel to be the necessary step. Now I just hope that step is far enough from the current that it gives Arizona a good, unique look again, whether that be throwback-inspired or something entirely different.

We had no reason to believe they would. No rumors, no nothing.

There's still hope for a change - any change - for 2017.

I recently heard a rumor that the National's were bringing back this script, either on a home white jersey or an alternate red jersey. Any truth to it?
