I know you and I have basically opposite opinions but I strongly disagree with this line because it's just a fact that the Marlins play in a retractable roof ballpark 81 times a season so it's not a bad sign if that's where the uniforms look best because that's exactly where they should look best. 

 

This is like you saying "it's a bad sign if my shoes looks best on my feet." 

Don't you think it would be silly to design uniforms that only look good under the lights of a retractable roof stadium, even if that's where they play 50% of their games? Also bearing in mind, we don't even know if these would look decent under those conditions yet. Frankly I'm skeptical.

What? Where do you get purple on the 06 Mets or the 19 Marlins? 

I don't know about the Mets, but I think he's referring to how the blue and red on the wordmark accenting don't really pop. They look optically noisy with a faint purple surrounding the black. I kind of see it too.

“This Marlins uniform may potentially look good 1/2 of the time it’s worn! Brilliant design! All hail Jeter!”

They’re clean and serviceable. Probably not what the Marlins were going for, or what they should be. Oh well.

I don't think they were designed to only look good under indoor lighting but if that's where they happen to look best then that's a great bonus and not a sign of bad design. That's what I meant.

I recognize that there are plenty of Marlins fans who are satisfied or happy with the jerseys, but I can't imagine any of them believing that more color would not be a massive improvement.

Since I disagree with you so much I'll make sure to point out that I do agree with this. I'm happy with the uniforms but wouldn't be opposed to tweaks that enhance the blue.

From small amounts of blue, orange, and black mixing together from a distance

Woof for the helmet. They have good pieces, but they're put together upside down and inside out.

It looks like they're wearing low-quality giveaway jerseys, practice jerseys, or t-shirts.

Can the matte helmet fad please die?

 

 

 

Heck no. Matte helmets are gorgeous on baseball uniforms. It's only a matter of time before all teams adopt it. The only problem here is the lack of color in the logo.

I understand that. I suppose my point is that if they managed to design jerseys that only look acceptable under very specific environmental conditions, they need to go back to the drawing board ASAP. The colors are not noticeable during a bright sunny day, so I would absolutely classify that as a sign of bad design work. I understand the concept they were going for but they didn't execute it. As others have pointed out, it's highly doubtful that the dullness we saw on the field was what the Marlins had sought out to achieve visually.

These definitely look black and white only from a rather short distance... Also, the helmet looks logoless, the sleeve logo looks horrible and the wordmark looks meh at best. I thought these might be salvaged a bit with colored accessories but it doesn't seem to be the case.

It works for some teams (Pirates, Giants, Yankees, Dodgers, and Orioles), but doesn't work as well on more modern-looking teams (e.g., the Marlins and the Diamondbacks).

 

You know what'd improve the Marlins' look? Gradient helmets!

It may be a mid-'00s trend, but it could work.

Helmets do look logoless, but I fault the design more than the material. But shiny would likely be much more flattering than the matte is. I would certainly hope that the team experimented with both options...

Since it's only ST, is there time to fix them before the regular season? 

No, for several reasons.

As I understand it, the blue jersey is relegated only to ST and BP use. I wonder how feasible it would be for them to enter it into circulation for the regular season. It's flawed in its own ways but it's considerably superior to the drabness of the home whites and black alternate. MLB wouldn't cause too much of a fuss if they did that, right?

 

In the meantime, I hope the Marlins are taking notes on ways to liven the set up for 2020. They don't necessarily need to reinvent the wheel...

It would also be funnier if it didn't come off so serious and spiteful, it sounds like he has a vendetta against Jeter or the Marlins, or both.

vendetta? LOL.

Jeter and the Marlins traded away the teams best players, and the new uniforms are awful. That is hardly a vendetta, more like common  sense hate toward a terrible person and organization.

You think i am special? Most people feel this way, you are one of the very few that defends him. Instead of claiming i have a vendetta against him, maybe i should ask if you have a crush on him, that would be the only explanation for constantly defending him and his actions.
