MLB 2016 Changes

Recommended Posts

Mine as well.

I don't want brown jerseys, but then again I'm opposed to most colored alternates on principle.

The Padres' brown jerseys were terrible, as are all coloured jerseys.

It was the home uniform which excelled. The wordmark is perfect. And when they changed the uniform from pullover/beltless to buttondown/belts, the team achieved the look which will forever define it:

(It is ironic that the wacky expansion Padres look more dignified there than the venerable stodgy Tigers, still stuck in the silly pullover jerseys and beltless pants.)

This uniform at home, with a grey version on the road, would be ideal.

I agree that is a great uniform, it actually has personality. Maybe all I'd do to update it is make the stripes on the sleeve and pants less thick but overall I really love that look.

Gross. Gross, gross, gross. That team name is the most egregiously-awful part of it, but really there's nothing at all good there.

I completely agree. I've never, ever, ever liked that uniform. Just super gaudy and too much. The only brown and gold Padres uniform I ever liked or thought looked like a decent professional baseball uniform was the inaugural set.

I'm always amazed but how much people like the bubble font. It seems to me that it is very late 70s/early 80s and would look completely out of place in 2015.

If the Padres do bring back the brown, it should be an updated version of the mid-70s jerseys that Willie McCovey wore.

^I agree, the blue pulls down the set. Other than that, it's perfect

In all honesty, I'm shocked the Brown & Orange set doesn't get more love. That set, even though the Giants lurk in the same division, was awesome. I loved the road pinstripes too.

Brown will never get any love.

Black and gold or black and orange, and so on, will allways beat brown

While I don't think that this image is an indicator for upcoming changes, it does reinforce the belief that the Nationals' road uniforms would look better with the red cap. As for the blue cap, it probably should be limited to the blue alternate, so that it stays in the rotation.

Wow. Just one simple switch of cap makes that uniform as a whole many times better. That looks great.

Wow. I didn't think th blue/red cap looked that bad, but the red cap with that uniform is simply gorgeous. The nationals are a frustrating uniforms team because they're so close to perfect yet they don't change it. If they put that awesome Nationals script on the home uni, put the American flag out of the blue alt (just because they're in DC doesn't mean they have to have a patriotic uni), and paired the red cap with the road uni, they'd have some of the best unis in baseball.

I'm not looking forward to Arizona's unveiling.

I really like the current, now old, look. All it needs is some minor changes and it would be one of the top MLB looks to me.

When are the Padres uniforms going to be unveiled? I know the D-Backs unis will be shown on Dec. 3.
