2014 MLB Changes (logo, uniform wise, etc)

Recommended Posts

Oh God.

Have every team wear a patch for a whole month honouring a guy who's STILL ON THE GODDAMN TEAM, all the while treating him as if he were the Second Coming? Only the Yankees would do this sort of crap.

The Orioles did it for Cal, and the Braves for Chipper.

I don't know about Chipper but the O's wore a patch during Cal's last week, or at least the final series of the season. Nearly an entire month does seem a bit tacky to me but Jeter is forever a Yankee legend. I don't see this type of farewell tour happening much, most guys don't have the luxury or talent to "choose" when to go out on their own terms.

This is one of the many reasons why I cannot wait till Jeter is retired. Good riddance, if you ask me.

The Yankees did the same thing last year for the last week of the season:

They started doing it after Mariano's number was retired. They're doing the same for Jeter (the ceremony is Sunday). Which I guess makes it make more sense, they're doing it to honor the number retirement.

According to Uni Watch, reports are that they'll be wearing their regular uniforms, just without the "Wrigley 100" patches.

From this to not inviting Sosa for the Wrigley birthday, to the rooftop debacle, and to the "rain-tarp/Obamacare" controversy, the Ricketts sure do know how to run a professional baseball club...

Is not inviting Sosa back a big deal?

Even the A's invited Canseco for their 1989 championship celebration.

Canseco was part of a team that actually won something though and reading comments from guys like Eckersley and Dave Stewart, they seem to have forgiven him for whatever he did. McGwire hasn't but he didn't show up anyway, as he is coaching for the Dodgers and has his own demons.

Yeah, but Sammy put a lot and I mean a lot of fans on seats for Cubs games during his run during the late 90's/early 2000's and even though they didn't won a title, even with all the steroid use (which he never tested positive for, but pretty sure he did) and all the non sense when he quit on them, he is part of the Cubs history, for better or worse. I bet many of those ex-Cubs greats would have felt the same way as Eckersley and Steward felt with Canseco around.

I'm afraid that every all-star level baseball player will now spend their final year on an interminable, annoying retirement tour. David Ortiz. Albert Pujols. Joe Mauer. CC Sabathia. The madness will know no end.

Fortunately Helton didn't go out that way. Granted, he wasn't on the same level talen-wise, nor was he in the spotlight, but it was a nice and subtle way to retire.

That's a nice concept - who did that?

It's one of the first images you see when you search "Marlins" on Google Images. Apparently it's the logo for a 16U team in Ohio.

The overly detailed marlin clashes with the relative simplicity of the art deco M. I wish people could let go.

Relax, if it's for some youth team in Ohio, let them enjoy.

I'd rather let go of the art deco.

I was dissapointed to see Jeter announce his retirement, now I'm sick of him and just want to see him go away. Not his fault, but that's the way the Yankees have ruined this whole ordeal.

After seeing the teams' six-month fapfest over MO, I wouldn't be surprised if he announced his retirement before the season in hopes of similar treatment.
