Milwaukee Brewers

I think the Brewers' 2020 redesign was nearly perfect; I just matched the home sleeve stripes to the away jersey, put the City Connect sleeve stripes on the navy alternate, & added a powder blue throwback.

Thank you for getting rid of the barley ball logo, the state outline logo is 10x better and should be on a sleeves.  One thing I'm kinda surprised about though, no pinstripe alt?

In trying to limit myself to a 4 jersey maximum for every team, the pinstripe alternate had to be the one to go, if I wanted to keep the powder blue throwback.

 

I'm thinking about maybe posting an additional throwback look for each team once I've completed the main uniforms, and if I end up doing so, the pinstripe jersey would definitely be the Brewers' choice.

Id say I agree that teams in general should be limited to 4 main uniforms.  Teams like Minnesota and Arizona have 5 or 6 and it gets to be too much.  

 

What about possibly making the home cream uniform a cream pinstripes uniform?  Of course this is just me spitballing, your refresh ideas are essentially perfect IMO.

I would have kept the pinstripes and dropped the navy. But otherwise I love pretty much everything about what you've done here. The cream uni looks so much better with matching piping.

Minnesota Twins

Gold is minimized to the sleeve patch, 70's-inspired striping is consistent across all jerseys, the navy alternate better matches the home jersey, & the powder blue throwback stays in the rotation full time.

Here's a look at pinstripes with the home uniform:

I personally prefer it plain, but it's not bad with pinstripes either.

I personally really like the navy jersey, so it would have been hard to let that one go. If there was any jersey I would have traded it for, it would have been the powder blue throwback, which also would have been a tough sell, of course.

Great job with the Twins. Dropping gold was an essential first step. Putting Minnie and Paul on the sleeve of every jersey and making the river light blue ... A+. Seems like the Twins text should be red with a white outline on the navy jersey, but I'm not sure if that's because it would look better or if my brain just knows that's how it's always looked for them.

Thank you very much! The Twins are my team, so I did the best I could to get them "right." 

 

As for the navy jersey, the inspiration for the white letters was their BP jersey from the early 80's, so the look is not *completely* without historical precedent:

The Twins briefly revived the white letters for their Spring Training jerseys in 2014, as well (along with the white front-panel cap, which is another element I would bring into the Twins' rotation full-time):

Here's a look at the red letters, though:

I prefer the white letters myself, but the red letters aren't bad by any means, either.

I prefer white scripts on navy for the Twins because it helps distinguish them from most other navy and red teams and their alternates:

The Nats are the only other navy & red team who use white scripts on their navy alts.

I completely agree! That (and the historical precedent presented above) were my main reasons for giving the Twins the white wordmark.

 

Cleveland, of course, has had white wordmarks in their past, but since I consider them more red-heavy than the Twins, it made sense to keep their logos/numbers red when presented on a navy background.

New York Mets

I gave the road uniform a script matching the style of the home, went with sleeves inspired by the "racing stripes" uniforms of the 80's, & kept the black jersey on as a throwback for night games.

How about front numbers on the gold alt since they’re on the other three jerseys in the set? Other than that the A’s are perfection.

Sure, here's a look:

Pittsburgh Pirates

The Pirates main home & away uniforms are essentially perfect, so I just added a gold alternate & consolidated their two black alternates into one.

San Diego Padres

I think the Padres went from a bottom 5 uniform in MLB to top 5 when they brought back the brown, so the only changes I made were to the alternate, utilizing the striping design from their previous navy jersey.

San Francisco Giants

I went back to the vertically-arched font from the late-90's for the home & away jerseys, along with adding a new secondary logo for the sleeve patch.
