i just dont understand why a baseball team needs six jerseys

 

there's 162 games, if anything baseball should be the one sport with that many uniforms, not the NBA.

The updated look is much better than the previous set. Not a fan of the black alt or any of the teal, but I'd say the first Nike unveiling is an upgrade (not like the D-Backs had anywhere to go but up). Of course, the chest swoosh doesn't look good, but it's not terrible.

Yeah, that 2007-2015 set has always been a bit of a head scratcher to me. The logo updates we’re FANTASTIC, and I even kinda liked the colors quite a bit (even if I do like the original colors better). The fonts weren’t very good, but they weren’t terrible, either. Despite that, that set aged faster and more poorly than any other set I can ever remember. There was just something about using that particular shade of brick red that became so absolutely stale so fast. The whole set was objectively an upgrade from the original look, but it just never really worked for them. 

 

It’s strange. I thought the original move to Sedona red, sand, and black was the right move, and that original set was head and shoulders above the crap they’re wearing now, but I don’t miss that look at all. It was kind of a perfect look for them because it reminded me exactly of Arizona. The problem is, Arizona is flat, boring, hot, and depressing. 

 

You tend to crap on Arizona any chance you get on these boards, Arizona must've hurt you bad sometime in the past.

Create a market of supply/demand for the throwbacks...dont wear them for some time only to bring them back as a one off soon.

 

That only makes sense if the throwbacks aren’t selling as well as many of us thought/expected/outright hoped they would. The Brewers didn’t need to “create a market” for their throwbacks.

I am not a fan of the Nike swoosh being on the chest of MLB jerseys now it should be on the left sleeve.  That said, it looks particularly bad on jerseys where there is a single logo on the left chest (the Diamondbacks black alt being an example.)

 

I also remember reading somewhere that the Nike jerseys for 2020 are pretty much the Majestic Flex-Base with the swoosh added.  Is there any truth to that?

 

Yes I believe the uniforms are exactly the same as the Majestic Flex Base. Same material, cut, and style.

No, on the contrary. Arizona was a GREAT time in my life. There are several things about Arizona that I genuinely love (Spring Training, bars in Scottsdale, Flagstaff, Chompies). I'm also about as big of a Sun Devil fan as you'll find. But I also don't have a problem calling a spade a spade. 

 

Just look at it this way. At least you're not Vegas 😘

The D-Backs new stuff isn't bad by any means, but I really wish there was teal in more than one of the uniforms.

If you have a best look, why would you choose to look less than your best?

It's clean now but it's also kinda boring. They need to make the teal whites the primary jersey.


It’s a shirt. Why does it need to be exciting?

Sadly, teams have recently chosen to look less than their best in the World Series, of all places.

I love teal just as much as the next guy, but the teal the dbacks use is way too garish, it’s basically neon. If they went back to their teal from the 90’s it would look fantastic paired with the red and black

I just realized there’s no red hats. Where’s the red hats? Also that Nike logo is such an eyesore.

I would have been okay with them sticking with the dark road uniforms but this is a cleaner look.

I’m a big fan! Is the grey uniform got a bit of a sand tint to it or is it just me?

The red cap was quietly dropped a year or two ago.

For all the hype around their teal and all the use it got the last several seasons I'm assuming the organization wants less of it. I mean how else can you explain them taking their most popular color and using less of it in this "refresh?" You'd think they would have added more of it but today's reveal tells me that they want to scale it back.

The World Series home uniform was the best they've every looked. The road uniform was garbage of course, but that shouldn't stop them from going back to the home uniform that era and building a new road identity to go with it.
