Recommended Posts

@daveindc Hard to argue with that... that's exactly what I wish they would have done.

Did MLB and New Era actually get the Brooklyn logo right?

 

 

 

MLB fixed its digital Cooperstown Collection file a couple years back to correct the bad "B", and New Era has been slowly phasing out their Bakersfield Dodgers "B" over the past year or so.

 

Worth pointing out, though. that the cap pictured is not the same as the one MLB and New Era are currently offering for sale.

 

The cap in Chris's graphic has the 1940s logo,

It was available earlier this year, but is now out of stock.

 

On the online shop, they're selling the 1955 logo.

I wonder which one the Dodgers will actually wear?

They’ll be wearing the one with the ‘40s logo and white squatchee:

The Dodgers need to be wearing those thicker numbers right now. That's the proper width for non-outlined numbers. What they wear now is too thin without the white outline to balance it. C'mon, if they can have the right numbers for Jackie Robinson Day, why can't they have the right numbers every game? Seems like a relatively simple off-season fix.

On the subject of the Red Sox uniforms for Patriots Day — the bombings happened in 2013, the last year of the Red Sox wearing all navy lettering in the road. So the “Boston Strong” jersey used those letter forms but red fabric instead of blue. 

 

That tradition has kept up despite the Red Sox mercifully going back to the road style that matches the homes in 2014.

That matches the social media graphics package their using this year. I don’t think it looks good at all, but I also don’t imagine it will be for anything more than this year.

I don’t think this is meant to be a tease at anything uniform related; looks more like someone in the Twins design department is just using retro baseball cards as inspiration for this year’s graphics package.

Thanks!  Maybe they’ll start selling them on the MLB shop. 

 

And holy :censored:, those are gorgeous. The thicker numbers look great against the white jerseys.  There’s another team that shouldn’t wear names at home; this should be their primary look.

Need to move the numbers up a couple of inches if going NNOB.  It looks better if it looks like the NOB shouldn't even be there - not that it's just missing.

Would love to see large, NNOB numbers make a comeback.

Cincinnati is in their red alternate on the road again. And at night this time too.

There was nothing wrong with that jersey.

Sure there is. It's bad for branding, in my opinion, when your scripts/NOBs/numbers/hat change their primary color between white and grey uniforms. Outlines coming and going are one thing, but base colors should be consistent. If the Tigers brought orange into their road uniforms by making all the navy elements orange instead of outlined in orange, that would look bad, and it's a fault of the Cubs that they have red numbers on the road when they're blue at home and widely thought of as a very blue team.

 

Of course, with the navy/red teams, it's about (or should be about) the various teams staking out their own balance of what's what, and that much navy on the uniform with so little red --except for the undershirt, where it makes the least sense -- is out of step with how we usually picture the Red Sox. (I think early on in that design, they even had to be cowed into going back to wearing literal red socks.) Having all the details in single-layer when we're used to them being outlined on everything else the Red Sox have worn for the past quarter-century stood out as an unnecessary contrivance. It never made sense to me as anything but an ill-conceived money grab: who was dying to shell out for a Red Sox uniform that was midnight blue and grey?

Since the Dodgers were in “throwbacks” there shouldn’t have been numbers on the front of the jersey (the mothership touched on this). Since they were, I wish the placement was a bit higher. They looked too low.

 

Other than that, no complaints.

I don't totally disagree with this, but I also give consideration to history and it's consistent with the way their roads were for a non-insignificant portion of their existence.  I liked how they kinda merged eras and went with the Tucson-ish style with the plain-blue letters.

 

It's not necessarily superior to what they use now, but I thought it was fine and still looked like a "Red Sox" jersey.  No defense for the asinine decision to drop literal red socks though.  It's literally the one requirement for a Red Sox uniform.

I actually like the Cubs red road numbers.  To me, the Dodgers are a "blue" team where the Cubs have always been "blue with red," and I find the road numbers to be just enough red when paired with the blue names, scripts, hats, socks and undershirts.  

You could argue that becomes lost when the road jersey is worn as fan gear.  But even then, you can look at one across the street, spot the red number with blue name and automatically know you're looking at a Cubs jersey.  It's not easy being distinctive with a RWB color scheme, but the Cubs have actually managed to pull it off.

Joe Maddon was quoted as saying since the NBA uses Jerry West for their logo model, MLB should do the same with Mike Trout. MLB twitter account promptly changed their profile picture:

It looks BAD. Surely the could’ve found a better picture to go off of.

Also this is a 22,000 seat stadium that seems 1/2 empty. What a disaster. Totally pointless

 

I have no issue with the occasional game out of the country. But only in a location that actually wants to see major league baseball and will fill the stadium

If MLB is going to do this series they need to spread it out through Mexico and not only put it in Monterrey.  I think MLB saturated Monterrey with so many series and the price may have been too expensive for the average Mexican worker to go.  Next year they should put a late march/early april 3 game series at Estadio Sonora in Hermosillo then put a series at the new Diablos Rojos stadium in Mexico City and then put the last one in Monterrey.  Estadio Sonora and Diablos Rojos stadiums are fairly new and are MLB approved.  They should take advantage of this while the facilities are still modern.
