I decided to revisit the original premise of this thread and ask, "Instead of changing navy and red teams' colors altogether, what about adding a third color to set them all apart?" So let's start today with the Nationals:

For the Nats, I decided to add Kasota gold, as used by the current day Minnesota Twins (yes, this means the Twins will be getting a different trim color for their redesign). The Nats had gold as part of their inaugural look but it was too dark and metallic-looking; this shade works much better, in my opinion. 

 

Either the Indians or Twins will be up next!

Gold on the Nationals gives them a bit of "turn-of-the-millenium Wizards" style to them. Don't know how intentional that was, but it was what I saw.

 

Thanks! The Wizards similarity was unintentional, but I don't consider it a bad thing. 

 

Today we have the Minnesota Twins!

Let's face it: The Twins' current identity is a mess. They have two navy alternates, a recent Kasota gold trim color addition that seems wildly unpopular and a powder blue fauxback that doesn't fit with any of their other uniforms. Since I gave Kasota gold to the Nationals, I chose powder blue as the Twins' trim color. It also serves as the base for the road uniform, which I added pinstripes to as a nod to their 1987-2009 road look. 

C&C, please. The Indians are next!

I’d take these over their current uniforms any day of the week. Powder blue is a much better trim color for the Twins IMO.

The Nationals set reminds me of their first few years after moving from Montreal where everything seemed to be trimmed or shadowed with gold.  

 

Thanks! Agreed on both counts.

 

Today's team is the Cleveland Indians!

For the Indians, I chose a shade of dark yellow as seen on this old Chief Wahoo logo. Red dominant look at home and navy dominant on the road. 

 

C&C appreciated. The Braves should be up next!

The red and yellow I'm not that impressed by. It looks kind of like a hot dog, to be frank.

 

I see what you did there.

Up this evening are the Atlanta Braves:

For the Braves, I used the tan/cream color from the unused 2021 All-Star Game logo. I figured the feathered sleeves design would be yet another touch to set the Braves apart from the other navy & red teams.

 

C&C appreciated. The Red Sox are next!

Just returning to the classic Braves uniforms already makes them look more distinct than the more generic-seeming modern ones.

 

Thanks! I actually decided to tweak my Braves design a bit, making the tan/sand color the base of the road uniform and replacing gray entirely:

A weird concept would involve making the Cardinals in the duller colors of the female bird instead of the existing bright red.

 

Cool idea! I'll work on that next.

 

Today we have the Red Sox:

To the surprise of probably no one, I gave the Red Sox a touch of Fenway green. I've done the Red Sox in red and green before, so it was fun/challenging trying to balance all three colors in one design. 

 

C&C appreciated! Let me know if you have any team + color requests.
