2012 MLB & Logo Changes

^yeah it's really annoying

i wonder if ANY of it has to do with Ozzie? he definitely seems like a control freak. idk, just spitballing

just interesting that the White Sox with him there wore it a ton. this year, the white sox have only worn the black once. ONCE! I'm shocked the chisox have only worn the alts once. but i could have missed the memo about certain days only? usually special jerseys are with day games though. the white sox wore the blacks on a night game this year

I doubt it's Ozzie's doing. The Marlins have worn the :censored: out of black since they first got it in 2003 pretty much. I think it's just something ownership likes.

Do they have a pair of orange socks in their set? If not, I agree that it would be wise to add a them. The black socks would look out of place with the orange cap IMO.

They have orange socks. They wore them Tuesday, April 17. I think it was the game Ozzie returned from suspension. Black hat / white jersey / orange socks. The only guy I remember off the top of my head wearing the pants up was Josh Johnson, but I know there were a couple of other guys too.

Something else to consider: all of the dugout team wear (jackets, pullovers, etc) is predominantly black. The clubhouse manager might be steering them to wear the black more often because it "matches" better. That is part of the reason why the Mets wore the black so often in the 2000's. The equipment manager said that since the dugout wear was predominantly black, the non-black jerseys "clashed too much". I know, it's horse :censored:, and it was self-fulfilling (since he was the one pushing black on the uniforms in the first place), but that was the reason he gave.

Or maybe the players like the black jerseys more. We really need to ask the beat writer for the Marlins why, since he'd probably be able to answer that.

I would have to guess that the players like the black jerseys more. That's why I presume sets like the last Marlins set and the current Rockies set have come to look like White Sox ripoffs. The players don't want to wear teal for the Marlins, or purple for the Rox, or even bright orange caps for the Marlins, so they drown out the look by wearing predominantly black.

As per the Marlins broadcast, the players don't have a say in what to wear. The marketing department decides what they were and puts it on a mannequin in the clubhouse.

Black on Fridays and orange for day games at home was one rule they described.

Have the A's worn their gold jerseys this year?

I know that they worn them in the 14-inning win over the White Sox...

The O's-A's matchup last night looked pretty good. Orange versus dark green.

Didn't the A's occasionally wear yellow jerseys on the road last season? Maybe I'm remembering wrong.

Here are photos of Johnson, Ozzie, and Steve Cishek with orange socks from the game you mentioned.

They did, against the Mets and Phillies.

The A's look incredible in stirrups.

And I like the Marlins with orange socks a lot more than I expected to.

The A's had a win streak going at home in the gold then the equipment manager surprised the team and brought them on the road trip. I doubt we'll see them on the road this year unless there's a similar situation

Here's a great pic of Oakland green vs. Baltimore orange. Beautiful.

I'm not a fan of the orange socks with the black cap for Miami; it looks really off balance to me.

Wear the orange cap with that and you have a somewhat okay looking uniform.

really not feeling the O's panel hat

Me either, I thought I was the only one. I loved the old bird logo.

As an Orioles fan and a huge fan of the new look, I think you're in the minority.

I love the panel hat, the new logo, the new orange jersey, everything. The team even seems to be playing better. This series against Oakland was a matchup of two of the best-dressed teams in the MLB.
