On a side note, I did a really quick and cheap mock up what the old Cleveland away text would look like with the C replaced.  The letter could use some scrunching to look more in line with the others, but I think the idea has got some potential.

I like it! I'm on board with anything that isn't just a block C.

As a man who will be getting married in a little over two weeks after a 15 month planning process, take your time!

Beautiful!  That works better than I would have thought.

With today's news that a group led by Derek Jeter (and Jeb Bush) are the Marlins' new owners, lots of fans on Uni-Watch are speculating that Jeter will influence the team to bring back pinstripes.

 

Short of simply bringing these back, what do you think that would look like?

On second thought, the current home uniforms might look pretty sharp with pinstripes.

I don't know if a change in uniforms will necessarily happen.  I think the biggest change, if there is one besides behind-the-scenes business stuff, will be that the former Yankee and conservative businessman may institute an appearance policy similar to the Yankees.

Can anyone explain to me what a "Cardhales" is? From mlbjerseyshop.pro

Given the lack of an upright stroke on the letter after the H, it's clearly an O.  It's Cardholes.  Clearly a Latin mixture of Cardinal and Beans.

Marlins, please bring teal back!

 

Although, I think Jeter still might be having nightmares about the Marlins in teal.

The Marlins are not the Yankees so they don't need to look like the Yankees and I'm sure the soon to be new ownership knows that. To think that Jeter is wanting to put the team back in pinstripes just because he is a Yankees great is silly and a bit insulting to Jeter because he's shown to be a smart guy and simply transforming the Marlins into the Yankees isn't smart business. That all actually sounds like a pipe dream of ignorant Yankee homers. Also, for the record, Jeter is not the boss there, Jeb Bush is. Jeter will have a role but he is one of five in the ownership group and is not the main man in charge.

I'd say it a derogatory thing. Growing up a Padres fan, I had a white jersey with blue script that said Doggers. People in San Diego always gave me crap since they thought it said Dodgers until I pointed out what it really said.

Jeter shouldn't be having nightmares about teal. When they played in the World Series the Fish were 99% black and white with ever the slightest hints of teal intertwined. There was virtually zero teal in the 2003 Marlins identity.

All the talk about a Marlins rebrand under the Jeter/Jeb Bush ownership group (which I think is rather unlikely) does make me think:

 

It's going to a be a wee bit awkward if the Marlins ever pay tribute to the 2003 WS-winning club (perhaps on the 20th anniversary in 2023). Guessing Jeter would't show up at the ballpark that day. I'm already dreading the idiotic "Jeter-owned Marlins pay tribute to '03 champs!" hot takes online... with an inevitable photo of a disappointed-looking Jeter back in 2003, of course.

Honestly, at the very least (and I'd say 50% or less chance) maybe they adopt a pinstripe alt for a certain day of the week.

 

Personally, the longer the Marlins have had this look, the more Im getting used to it.

I don't mind the current look as long as they emphasize the blue and orange and de-emphasize the black.
