Miami Marlins 2019 Rebrand

Recommended Posts

I’m not sure how the split works, but if the majority of sales are in fact split, then the other teams would be putting pressure on the poor-selling ones to do something since everyone is impacted by a low performer. If I’m the Yankees, I’m pissed that I’m giving welfare to the Marlins, and I’m sure MLB also wants the low-selling teams to step it up. 

 

Regardless of any split, everyone benefits from more sales, so that certainly has a lot to do with it.

On my TV (which is not 4K)...the BP jerseys look teal in the sun, and the whole package looks like teal, black, and orange. And it looks like a great update from the 90s. Today's game against the Mets is an aesthetically pleasing game. 

Just pointing out an observation but that teal look on the blue jerseys has only happened on TV when they're at the Mets spring training ballpark. No clue why but I've seen the jerseys at every televised spring game and this only happens there in Port St Lucie. Probably has something to do with the TV cameras. I've also seen still pictures of those same games and the jerseys look blue again so it's definitely a TV thing for whatever reason. The first tweet is vs the Mets, as a comparison the second tweet is vs the Cardinals in Jupiter, Florida.

It's probably a TV camera thing.  I watch a couple of college teams that have teal but it looks kelly green on TV.

Agreed, but in my experience, it’s not the stadium, but the broadcaster. On TV27 (The local broadcasters of Orlando City games), they can look like a wide variety of colors, from magenta to navy. However, on national-broadcast games by ESPN or FS1, they always look purple, as they should. However, baseball games are shown from a very different angle than soccer games are, so it could just be sport differences as well.

Time of day, straight sunlight vs overcast skies, colors in the background/of the opposing team, angle of the cameras and camera settings are among the many different factors that would contribute to the same jersey looking two different colors.

In both pictures...this team needs more magenta.

Drives me crazy that opposing teams can both wear blue tops but god forbid they wear white pants with colored tops on the road. Aqua over white would be nice. Aqua over gray is blah.

The Royals can get away with powder blue over grey because of the blue hats and socks. Doesn't work quite the same way with all the black.

Nah, light blue clashes with gray pants - they’re too close in... something. I don’t know the technical term, but there’s a reason that light blue was an accepted alternative to gray. Aqua contrasts better, but still doesn’t look great in the Marlins’ case. 

 

Back in tbe 80s it wasn’t uncommon for a road team to wear white pants if they had a colored top, so I don’t see the issue now.

I only remember the Cubs and Astros doing that. Who else did?

I've always thought that the old Marlins teal BP and ST jerseys looked great with their white and grey pants. Particularly the later and more extensively worn version with the black, as opposed to silver, wordmark. That was their spring training mainstay through 2002.

The Giants did when they had their pullover period.

I like the script, but divorced from the rest of the set.

I only wrote the '70s for the Astros because the articles puts '75-'79, here's why:

One note: There’s a lot of confusion about the extent to which the Astros may have worn white road pants (and, for that matter, white-based road jerseys) from 1975 through 1993. Bill Henderson’s guide spends several pages examining this question — it’s too much to summarize here, but the short version is that (a) the team’s road greys during much this period were a very light grey; (b) they also appear to have used a road cream, which wasn’t all that distinguishable from the home whites; and (c) the only seasons during which they definitely wore white pants on the road were 1975-79, so those are the years I listed above.

Wow, I didn’t realize how popular that style was in the 70’s and 80’s, I thought it was just a few teams. 

 

This might be an unpopular opinion, but I think the colored top, white pants on the road look could work great across MLB in the modern day. It would bring a little extra splash of color to games as opposed to white v. gray, and would bring baseball closer to football, basketball, & hockey in aesthetic.

Similar number of teams that used powder blue road uniforms (10 and 12 teams, respectively). In fact four teams (Braves, White Sox, Cubs and Rangers) used both styles at some point.

The color of blue looks very different on the hat/sweatshirt compared to the uniform.

You can add the Orioles to that list

Are you sure they did it on the road? The Orioles had gray roads throughout the 70s and 80s...and the picture above looks like Memorial Stadium.

Watching some streams of MLB The Show and the Marlins unis don't look very good in the game.
