Source: Marlins looking to dump teal in favor of orange

Recommended Posts

An extremely (I don't know how much more emphasis I can put on extremely) reliable source in the Marlins Front Office informs me that teal is on the way out as a Marlins primary color, in favor of orange. He didn't give me a time table, but he said it was dependent on the team getting stadium funding later this month from the state.

This doesn't surprise me. Every Marlins flyer, magazine or commercial in the last 3 years prominently features orange and black with only little accents of teal.

Yeah, the transistion has seemed to be happening for a while now.

The problem is, both teal and orange have been sentenced to the third tier of colors for the Marlins (Black/White, Silver, Teal/Orange). I guess Orange has been in that tier for a while, but in the last few years Teal's been put there.

So they can't simply swap Orange for Teal and expect it to be anything near a primary color. Black is their primary color right now.

Baltimore

San Francisco

It's not like the Marlins are going to red & navy ...

What the heck is wrong with the teal anyway? It's freakin Miami--if teal makes any sense, it makes sense there.

Which is actually how I interpreteed Hedley's post...as sarcasm about all those who complain about the red and navy... but maybe I was wrong.

see this is my problem with MLB teams. the ones that have some sort of identity trade it for league uniformity. soon all the teams are just going to wear different shades of gray.

Two black and orange teams are two enough, if not two too many, in the major leagues.

(By the way, Part 1: I hate black and orange because they were the colors of our arch-rivals in high school. That sort of thing stays with you for life.)

(By the way, Part 2: I'd like to see the Marlins go with the same colors as the Dolphins. They would work very well for the Marlins.)

(By the way, Part 3: And while you're at it, call them the Miami Marlins instead of the Florida Marlins. If there's more than one team in the state, don't use the state's name. Besides, Miami Marlins kind of has a ring to it.)

Wouldn't that be pretty much what the Dolphins have now?

This is great... but I think drop the black. If they want to make orange more of the primary, and if they do in fact, plan to phase out teal completely, it will be one TERRIBLE logo... A marlin can't be orange obviously :P .

Black is so last season. Two shades of blue is the new black.

From what I hear,the Marlins will change to the Miami Marlins when the new stadium is built.

what the hell does orange have to do with a marlin? nothing! so keep it out of the color scheme instead of trying to force it into numerous logos/merchandise. i hate it.

It is a tongue-in-cheek quip. I'm tiring of teams dropping rarer colors in favor of reds and blues, most recently the Diamondbacks.

The Marlins should stick with the teal. It's unique.
