2019 MLB Changes

Recommended Posts

Just saw a highlight from the Mets and Brewers game, and the Mets are wearing one of their alternates for the first time this season tonight.

Blue vs blue?

 

There really should be a rule against this. Different shades of blue or not, it looks bad.

 

MLB would benefit by requiring teams to announce their uniform schedule before a series begins, and adjusting to avoid this.

Yeah, the umpires should have told the Mets to wear something else. 

 

Apologies if this has already been brought up, but it seems like teams have gotten much better about applying diacritics to non-English names this year. Has this been in place for a few years and I just missed it? I noticed Javy Baez has an acute over the A, and there were acutes and tildes all over in the Red Sox-White Sox game I watched a little of earlier.

Started doing it a few years or so ago, I believe.

Two games into the Reds throwbacks, and I am really liking it. Should be fun to watch as the season goes.

I really don't mind color vs color matchups, but this one was painful to watch.  Not nearly enough contrast.

I feel like this wouldn't help as many home teams already know what they're wearing ahead of time and the road teams still don't usually do anything to prevent the clash of colors.

I'd take a step further just to be sure. Only one team can wear an alt...let the home team decide and if it wears an alt, the road team must wear a primary.

Maybe teams should decide their home uniform schedule before the season starts and then road teams can prepare accordingly.

A lot of teams I believe leave the choice of uniform up to the starting pitcher. And if a team starts winning in that jersey they normally wear it then until they lose. And they can wear an alternative jersey too much. Consider the White Sox. Beautiful road grey uniform but has not been worn once this year on the road as the black top has been only worn. I like the black top. But I'm sick of seeing it every road game and at half of the home games.

If there was a rule, the home team would have to announce and the road team would not be allowed to wear a jersey of the same color.

There are maybe a handful of games in a season out of thousands where this happens. Same thing with the special event uniforms that teams will wear for one series.

 

This is a non-issue.

The Brewers have the opposite problem.  Their colored tops and their fauxbacks are the only time they don't look completely ridiculous.  Especially since they removed the piping from their pants.

Solution: stop doing that.

This is the kind of rule that exists in soccer leagues around the world.  Visiting teams have even been forced to change on the spot in order to avoid a colour clash.  Major League Baseball should definitely adopt a similar rule.

Here's the thing.

 

Even leaving it up to the starting pitcher? There's PLENTY of time for the visitors to adapt, as they travel with a grey set+one other.

I was thinking that, too.  If they only want to travel with one set to save on lugging stuff around, then bring the gray.  But most trips are made with at least two sets and I think MLB teams are flexible enough to adapt to a choice made hours before the game.

This also applies to Cleveland, Miami, and Toronto as well.  Especially Miami.
