Love those but is there a reason for the MLB logo under the A? Was that there in the original jersey? 

 

Thats a throwback to 1969, when all teams wore a “125th anniversary” patch (you can just make our the text under the logo).

I really like that logo but yeah that 60 is rough.

 

I think it's meant to look like a 60 even if you view only the portion above the ribbon, as well as if you ignore the ribbon and look at the whole thing.  But it doesn't really work well.  A smaller 60 above a ribbon that arcs downward would be better.

Please for the love of God just bring these back as alternates.

Those were the 1969 uniforms.  They'll probably use the 1968 style.

However, from the standpoint of pure aesthetics, even better would be the 1965 style.

But, on the assumption that they will use the 1968 style, I have to say that, in this case, I would prefer the sleeveless jersey to the true vest that we see in the 1965 style.  The "Oakland" wordmark is too long for the vest, as we can see in the original 1968 uniform.

I suspect they keep finding out that their fans want brown back, and so they'll keep going until a focus group tells them what they want to hear.

It seems that way.  And it's just silly.  Wouldn't it be easier to just say "we don't like brown and it's not coming back?"  Even if the fans do want brown, I don't think they're going to stop going to games or boycott the team.  Just rip that Band Aid off.  Then they can...

Not only sticking to the same color scheme, stick to the same look too. Their unis Change every other year to build up support. There’s no consistency. They finally got a Padres script for the home uniform to match that nice San Diego font, and then they screwed it up by going back to the bow tie font... it just doesn’t make sense. Also, I wish there was a full script Padres on the Navy jersey rather than the SD. It just doesn’t feel like it fits with the rest 

...pick a gosh darn look.  While I want them to wear brown (or at least something that sets them apart a little), the other problem is that they keep tweaking things and despite their obsession with "boring" they keep throwing new variations of boring, diminishing the "boring" in all the wrong ways.

 

There's really not a lot of positive to say about their look.  They've always had an interlocking "SD."  That's the best thing I can say (and I REALLY hate the little gap in the "D").

The frustrating thing is that they come so close.  The 2016 uniforms were as good as they are going to get in terms of design.  Just replace blue with brown, and you're home free for the next 50 years.

At first I thought the building in the Dodgers' patch was the elevator at Dodger Stadium, but then I realized it was a little too ornate for that. L.A. isn't really a skyline town, don't know why they tried here.

 

LA’s City Hall is the most iconic building in Los Angeles.  Hell, it might well be the most iconic building on the entire West Coast.

Ahem?

 

The Seattle Space Needle, the Golden Gate Bridge, Coit Tower (maybe), and the Hollywood Sign would beg to differ.

The US Bank Tower is pretty famous for being in LA.  The tall circular building in the skyline always tells me that's LA (you see this skyline in a bunch of commercials, movies, and even NFL RedZone studios).

The Transamerica Pyramid is probably also more famous than LA's city hall, in terms of buildings on the West Coast.

Agree that US Bank Tower is more recognizable for LA.  Saw it get blown up pretty good in Independence Day.  Just for arguments sake I would say the Capitol Records building is more recognizable too.  Had no idea what LA city hall looked like before 30 seconds ago

Also agree that the most iconic building on the west coast is the Space Needle
