2013 MLB Logo and Uniform Changes

Recommended Posts

The Rays cap intrigues me, if we've seen it before. I can only think of the original navy blue, navy blue with plaid visor and feaux-back from 2012.

It's probably a KC style one, Baby Blue Crown, Navy Brim.

My wish-list:

  • Detroit (and NY Yankees): pick one logo and stick to it.

I've never understood it when people say this. The bulkier chest NY monogram would look terrible on a cap, and the NY cap monogram is too thin to work on a jersey.

On the topic of the Yankees, I'd love for them to drop their incredibly bland roads in favour of something along the lines of the 1912 throwbacks they wore earlier this year. I know it will never happen, but I can dream.

Another thing I'd like would be for the Pirates to ditch the "detached" white outline from their black alts. It really clutters the thing up, and it would look 100X better if they used a single white outline (like this) or, better yet, just put it as gold-on-black.

Any changes for the Twins for 2013?

No changes for the Twins in 2013 but I wish they would dump the blue road alternates. They wear them too frequently. 57 of the 81 road games to be exact.

Roman - can you keep the first post updated with separate sections for confirmations and legitimate speculations?

Done.

im with Lights here. its very odd to have 2 logos slightly different from each other. if they only work in 1 place then neither are that good to begin with. application is everything with a logo. there should be 1, even if it means doing some work to one of them

Do any teams' alternate jerseys have the city name, rather than the team name? I thought it would be cool if the Orioles put "Baltimore" on their black alternate. That way you've got 2 "Orioles" and 2 "Baltimore" jerseys.

The Red Sox, Rangers, Braves, Marlins, and Rockies also have alternates with location name rather than team name.

It'd be nice, but at this point, I really don't care and wish they blow it all up and start from scratch pull a Blue Jays.

If they'd do a Blue Jays, it'd better be with the BiG set instead of your beloved ugly Germanaic 90's set. But this new set has really grown on me. Love the colors, love how everything looks like a beer label. Fits very nicely with the "brewer" identity. A few tweaks away from perfect IMO. Really wish they'd bring back the Barrel Man recolored and as a sleeve patch or something.

Personally, I LOVE what the Brewers have now. The only thing that I think could stand a change is the navy color. Green or even Royal blue would look so much better on that set.

Yes, please. Reach back to a previous look, or start anew. Anything (I hope) would be better than their awful current look.

Really wish they'd bring back the Barrel Man recolored and as a sleeve patch or something.

The only way I could countenance the current look. I worked this up a couple years ago:

The team has actually used my version once; always hoped they would again.

That thing couldn't be more minor league and hopefully it never sees the field again.

Just out of curiosity, do you feel the same about the Reds' mascots? Mr. Met?

So far (I know I've missed a few):

Confirmed:

Rays are bringing back a previously used cap from their past.

Cardinals dropping the navy cap (not sure this was absolutely 100% confirmed, but reading between the lines suggests that's the case)

Nationals are adding a new cap

Astros complete overhaul

Mets dropping black jerseys / caps, adding blue alt

White Sox new cap (possible new throwback as well)

Legit Speculation:

White Sox throwback

I'm sure I missed a couple.

White Sox Throwback cap should be in the first category.

I don't see Reds on there.

I've tried to recolor the Beerman a few times but never liked the result, but that one is perfect, Gothamite.

Perfect. Slap that puppy on the sleeve, put the Milwaukee script on the greys, toss in that Gold uni every once in a while (not a lot) and that set is the best they've ever worn.

Mr. Met doesn't appear anywhere on the Mets' uniforms, so for me, he doesn't apply.

As far as the Reds' mascots, no I don't feel the same. They're gimmicky, sure (but not too gimmicky), but I'm fine with some goofy mascot logo, provided it isn't lame like that swinging keg thing.
