Updated signage at the Marlins' spring training complex, notable for adding a white outline.

 

 

 

This looks great. The hat logo definitely needs a white outline... Use the current one with the black alt only.

Minor detail, but I appreciate the fact they used the correct trophies. 

I can definitely tell you that this team has always done that. Would love to know how many other teams do that, or how many don't might be a better question. It's amazing how easy it is to think that every world series trophy is/was the same.

I would too. 

 

How many teams regularly use an image of the Commissioner’s Trophy in their branding, anyway?  Asking as someone whose team can’t. Yet.

Former team president David Samson gave a pretty candid interview yesterday and adamantly asserted that the new Jeter regime "does not care at all about the past" (paraphrased). This leads me to think that teal was never even considered as an option for the rebranding. This does not come as a surprise at all, of course, but it's still interesting to think about. The hubris does remind me a bit of Jeffrey Loria, though.

I truly believe that that could have made these exact same uniform templates and logo with teal, a hint of black and silver.   It would have turned out soooo beautiful!  I think someone on here already did a mockup of what the new marlins uniforms would look like in predominant teal.

I really wish they had returned to teal, but the new set could have been infinitely better if they even used the light blue color more prominently in the logos and wordmark. Such a missed opportunity. I have my fingers crossed for a "soft" and more colorful rebrand a few years down the road when the Marlins might actually be fielding a competitive team.

Oh I don't know, the shirts kind of look like they came out of a bargain bin. If they were shooting for the 90s they should have brought back the 1993 beauties.

I am very much a novice when it comes to these things, at least compared to some of you long-time logo guys, but the new marlins logo just seems half-assed to me.  I don't have an issue with the colors (as someone who travels to Miami 5-6 times a year, I can see the associative qualities of the colors with the city), but the baseball seams on that fish are horrific.

I actually love their current logo (jerseys not so much) but I gotta admit I like this even more, just stay away from pin stripes.

 As someone who absolutely hated the previous look, I really love this update. The home jersey is beautiful and the Miami nights theme is well thought out.

Yeah, I’m not sure we should talk about what a stand-up, respectable guy David Samson is. 

 

He went to LeBetard’s public birthday party, went up on stage, and was booed by the Miami fans in attendance.  And how did he respond?

 

Quote

He flipped them off and bragged that he and Loria's cartoonishly evil antics helped the owner sell the team for $1.2 billion. That followed a deal, which Samsion helped broker, that allowed Loria to pay only $150 million for the team. (Some estimates have put that number even lower.)

 

"Thank you so much; thank you very much," a drunk-sounding Samson stammered into a microphone as Le Batard lumbered behind him. "Here's why I love when you guys boo me. Right. I want you to keep booing me. Because guess what? One-point-two billion. :censored: you!"

 

Class act, all the way.

Well, I respect his candor. Try getting Jeter to be direct or forthcoming about anything! Jeter is certainly more professional and probably whom I'd rather have running big picture things among those two choices, but it remains to be seen whether or not he's effective in that role. I can say that so far the activities on the baseball operations side have been no better or perhaps even a little worse than under the Loria ownership.

Candor?

 

it’s spelled “contempt”.

It’s funny because Samson has said he isn’t close to Loria anymore. Is he celebrating making someone else a boatload of money?

It's because he's clearly drunk and joking around. It's a stupid, unfunny joke, but not something I would take seriously.
