Unpopular opinion: the A's current cap would look 100x better if it was just an A and didn't have the 's.  It's one thing for the cap logo to represent the nickname rather than city, it's another thing when it's a nickname of the nickname.  The Phila A's jersey/cap would look great in green and gold.

I'll take the blackletter O as BP/ST wear, but the classic Oakland A's cap should be the only one they wear home and away.

I am glad the Padres got their first ever no hitter in their current set.

It’s a very nice hat, but the A’s hat has stood the test of time. 

 

The O hat reminds me of the great “B” hat that Showalter wore in Baltimore. Same vibe.

which would also instantly be one of the best caps in the Majors.

I agree.  When your cap is that good you shouldn’t have an alternate.  (Looking at you, Braves.)

 

But if they insist on an alternate, road or otherwise, the gold O is better than any other variation they’ve worn.

If they're insistent on changing around the colors of the brim or the letter, then they should just go with a road O as the monogram.  Ideally, as others have stated, they just use the home cap 100% of the time, but the gold O on solid green would work better than changing the colors of the main cap if a second cap was absolutely required.

I used to think this was a silly take but I've come to agree completely. The A by itself is a great mark and looks more balanced without the 's.

I'm sure its been said before, but I don't mind if they wear them max 10-15 times a year. Anything more than that is diverting too far from the Mets visual identity IMO. With the Nike Influenced doomsday (probably) on the horizon I can see this getting out of hand quick. I'm praying that the MLB doesn't turn into an NBA-esq disaster.  

 

Damn didn't think it would be less than 3 days till the uniform Armageddon (joke)...

 

As often with Nike, most people hate this, and even the most open-minded on this forum want these worn maximum 15 times a year. I'm a discouraged supporter of the "City-Connect" series because I like the creativity and connection to the local market. However make no mistake, asking Nike for restraint is difficult when I truly don't think Nike knows what restraint actually is. We hope for the Boston Red Sox, they see the Boston Make-Us-A-:censored:-Ton-Of-Money-and-screw-your-identity. I know it's pretty much rhetorical at this point...

Why even bother when they’re going to have to change in a few years anyway?

Change? Is Oakland getting a new stadium or something?

They've got a plan in place for a new park at Howard Terminal that seems to be a-go, even if it was delayed a bit, and they're hoping for it to get the final approval from City Council sometime this year.

 

Can't see the A's wanting out of Oakland while this ball is rolling, though, which is what I assume Fiddy was referring to.

They’ve been trying to get a new ballpark approved for like a quarter of a century now. I’ll believe it when I see it.

The teal billed cap is one of my favorites in all of baseball, but it doesn’t work for me in this combination.

Looks fine to me. The Mariners need all the accents of vivid color they can get.
