I have several immediate thoughts when I read this...

 

1. Were the uniforms really even finalized back then? He might not have seen more than unfinalized prototypes.

 

2. What's wrong with this guy thinking about uniforms in his decision making process when he's potentially about to set up his family and his future grandkids financially for life?

 

3. How awesome is it that this guy is thinking about uniforms in his decision making process when he's potentially about to set up his family and his future grandkids financially for life??? Maybe Manny is a little bit of a uniform junkie like most of us? That's a cool thought.

Brown uniforms weren't historically popular with Padres players. Tony Gwynn referred to the color of one set as "baby poop brown". Machado probably just wanted to be sure it didn't look like crap (pun intended).

Tony’s dislike of brown has always been a prime reason I hate it. If one of the best baseball players of all time, who was an avowed student of the game, thought they looked like crap and disliked wearing them... they were crap.

He was still just one person with one opinion. It's ok to disagree with Tony on this.

Another thing Tony Gwynn hated was not dying of self-inflicted cancer. I'm shoving a beach ball of tobacco into my mouth, guy almost hit .350

He was one person, with good taste ;)

 

and at least among players players he wasn’t alone.

Or... Everyone has their own opinion. Doesn't mean it's a forgone conclusion. I'm a Braves fan, but I personally loved the Padres in Orange and blue. But the brown/gold combo isn't offensive in any way, IMHO

Apparently he forgot the hatred when his beer was formulated.

Not sure he was involved with the labeling. Just the formulation shortly before his untimely death.

All lies. Tony wanted brown back too.

Tony is one of my five favorite MLB players that never wore a Twins uniform.  But he was WRONG on this.  Wrong!

Eyes and TV cameras will shift to the man known in San Diego as Mr. Padre, the aforementioned Tony Gwynn.

Trust us, he'll be smiling.

"I'd love it," said the .338 career hitter, first-ballot Hall of Famer and Padre for all 20 of his major league seasons. "That's how we started, with brown. I'd love to see brown."

 

...

 

"Brown is part of who the Padres are," said Gwynn, who wears black and red these days while coaching baseball at his alma mater, San Diego State, "and it's definitely unique in baseball, because no one else has brown. How many teams have blue? How many have red? But none of 'em have brown."

Padres Instagram confirmed Camo will continue to be worn on Sundays as the Padres have done for the last 15 years or so. (It’s in the comments)

born & raised San Diegan. the 98 pinstripes are my favorite uniform the Padres have ever worn. was very bummed when orange was eliminated early on in the focus group process.

 

and @Teal, apparently the home uniform is a pinstripe uniform, which makes me very, very happy.

Yeah I associate the team with the 90’s unis as that was what I first saw them in. Still their best look to date. 

 

Also hearing pinstripes are at least back. Though I’m hearing they tweaked the SD on the cap to make it a little more “wavy”... whatever that means.

 

No word on if it’s the USMC or USN camo (or both) continuing on.
