Sounds good to me. 

 

Now let’s fix that terrible cap logo....

I don't know if anyone pointed this out: 7 out of 8 playoff teams have a blue in their color set, most of them navy.  🙄

Actually it’s 8 of 8

Not sure if this has been mentioned yet, but an Utz advertisement is being imposed onto the batter’s eye in St. Louis when the ball is hit into the outfield. If you aren’t watching the game, I assure you it looks as bad as it sounds.

The only uniform the Oakland A's have worn in my lifetime that I didn't like was the black jersey.  While I prefer the forest green to the kelly green, I love it when they bring out the Swingin' A's pullovers be they white, gold or kelly green.  I usually don't like teams changing shades of a color during the season, but I give the A's a pass because their throwbacks look so good and they don't seem to over do it.  It seems special when they sport the Kelly greens.

A's should be Athletics on white, Oakland on grey, A's on kelly green, A's on gold. Only one hat, white A's on kelly crown with gold bill. White elephant on all the sleeves except grey, which should have the primary. Thank you.

Well, first off, the white elephant (after undergoing significant cleanup), should be the primary and on every uniform. Stick something in the ball part to represent Oakland. That roundel, with the "A's" logo that no longer appears anywhere else in their identity, should go away. Second, move the "Athletics" script to the dugout jackets only (like the Yankees do). 

 

The "Athletics" script is the mark of a Yankee farm team, a squad whose only title came in the middle of an earthquake ravaging their metro area, and a team sliding into being an occasional contender that simply can't win in the playoffs. Arnold Johnson's "innovation" needs to be demoted, just as he needs to be properly vilified in the sport's history.

I did notice that. The navy/red combo is especially overused. Look how similar these 5 teams look...

Rays with Yellow all over their social media, gave out yellow towels. I am surprised. Their navy/light blue is a little boring, but its a pretty good look when they go heavy on the light blue. They kind of own that color. Would have liked to see them use that instead.

I'd love light blue and yellow.  I like a couple of college teams with that combo.

When/if the Rays ever figure out their stadium situation, I've wanted to see them go to a light blue/kelly green combo, along with adopting the fish ray identity.

The other nice thing about the Rays embracing light blue and yellow is that it brightens up the dingy looking Trop (even on TV) a TON. I don't know who's bright idea it was to outfit a stadium playing indoors with horrible lighting in the darkest colors possible, but I think it would go a long way to brighten the team colors up a bit.

they seriously were too lazy to write that themselves for the ad? Had to use a font that looks hand drawn.....instead of just doing it by hand and making it look natural....SMH

It was great to see the Cardinals' blue hats again, but it was weird since they're now a clash against red-capped teams and the Nats donned their blue. Did St. Louis not realize the Nats were sticking with blue? I wonder if the Cards switch to red today.

I hope they wear the blue, lose 36-0, and banish the blue caps forever. 😁

...or staple a red bill on them.

That would be a good start.   If they would then also add a red crown, it’d be just about right. 😉
