I'm going to be annoyed if Arizona chickened out and dropped the teal at the last minute. All this hype would have been for nothing.

Go big or go home, I say.

Black, red, sand AND TEAL would look so badly forced. So far, I like how this looking, palette-wise.

I don't think it would've looked that forced. You can balance four colors just fine, but that's exactly what it takes; balance. I'll reserve judgement until I see how it's applied (if teal is kept, that is).

If teal got dropped, however? I'll have a cow. I'm not a fan of the current color scheme at all. Any variance or departure would've been very welcome.

that black material looks like a close-up of tackle-twill rather than jersey material.. could be three colors of a logo/wordmark, without the jersey being shown.. possibly these 3 colors on a TEAL jersey?!?!?!

I just saw a retail guide that lists the following caps as no longer in use for 2016:

Astros orange

Mets camo

Pirates mustard/black

Padres light brown

We knew about San Diego and there was a rumor going around that one of the camo hats is gone. But I haven't seen anything else about Houston and Pittsburgh. I hope it's incorrect because those are two of my favorite caps in baseball. Can anyone confirm?

So, two of my most-favorite caps in history (Astros orange and Pirates mustard) are being mothballed once again. Wonderful. :(

I guess I better order that Astros orange cap now.

I picked one up at Ross for 10 bucks. Now I know why they were so cheap. I would recommend looking around for a discount first.

Hmm... Random thought, but the bottom of that pattern looks like the material you'd often find on a standard pair of athletic shorts. If that pattern is meant to be a sublimated patter, unless it's a photonegative, it would cover and discolor the entire bottom of the jersey. Could the pattern in the teaser be a matter of material rather than sublimation? Either a raised material on the jersey akin to the material on the batting practice hats or a completely different colored mesh material on top of the jersey? Crazy, I know, but the way the rebrand has been talked about, it sounds insane.

Of course, this is just the usual "we've gone through everything and now we're just wheel-spinning while we wait" thinking, but it's just a random thought that popped into my head when I saw the full image from the side of that standee. Probably not true, but figured I'd throw it out there.

"But I was using my whole ass!" - Padres

If they reincorporate brown, they wouldn't be using their whole ass. They'd be using their ass whole!

Interesting pattern

If that's the sublimated pattern it will look passable on a black alternate.

I'm thinking of a Atlanta Hawks type rebrand but with teal/turquoise instead of volt yellow.

I'm trying to picture a scenario where teal/turquoise looks good with their color scheme and...

I... Just....Can't...

Maybe I'm reading too much into it, but that single color white A logo they're using on the bottom of that banner makes me wonder if they're trying to tease a one color version of that logo.

BTW, Padres SBN with the hot takes.

I think I found something.... Take a look at the bottom left corner... It looks fairley similar to the pattern that they have in on the promotional stuff. My bet is on that they put the pattern on the uni's and hats, as the actual stitched on inner fabric

Sounds like the Padres will only be revealing their new camo jerseys today, and on battleship.

Lame.
