Hmmmmm. I'd ranked Storm Chasers fourth out of the final nine candidates. Still, seeing this identity package, I have to say that I find it disappointing. The wordmark strikes me as being... meh. The pair of mascots - Vortex, the anthropomorphic tornado and Stormy, the apparent love-child of the Phillie Phanatic and the Grinch - leave a LOT to be desired.

I'd hoped for Omaha Omahogs... by a wide margin. If not that, than Omaha Sodbusters. This? It isn't up to the standards I've come to expect from Plan B.

Just got the same e-mail as well.

This catches me by surprise, but the nickname works for the area. Let's face it, twisters are a part of life in the Midwest, so Storm Chasers makes sense in that way.

The mascots are just funny. The tornado has a bat for a nose.... A bat!

I LOVE the name, I think it's fantastic. Certainly something unique and out of the box. I don't think the logos and mascots are that bad, either. I especially love the "O" logo with the bolt. Was this by chance done by Plan B? The mascot logos especially look like something they'd do.

EDIT: Nevermind, I just read that it was a Plan B job.

Plan B's sense of whimsy (and anyone else's) tops out at Double-A for me. I sort of expect Triple-A teams to be a smidge more professional than a childlike grinning tornado with a bat for a nose.

I'm with you. Gimmicks are fine and great for <=AA, but IMO AAA should be pretty professional. I liked the Phillies Sranton-Wilkes Barre Red Barons identity up until the end, and now they've turned their AAA into a total joke in the form of the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs. It's a shame Ryne Sandberg has to wear that uniform now.
