I am all for team identities tied to local culture or fauna, but some of these Brandiose names seem more like inside jokes than names that fans can actually get behind.  Tarp Skunks?  really?  Just as bad as Rumble Ponies, Sod Poodles, etc.    Some of these teams would be better off going full time with their food-truck day names or their Hispanic Heritage names. 

 

 

 

What's wrong with thinking outside the box?

That’s not thinking outside the box, those names are just childish and dumb

I may not always like the results, but I'm all for that!  Enough of these common animal and medieval names.

Ready Batter One: Wisconsin Timber Rattlers to celebrate Video Games Night

January 28, 2020 - 22:53 PM

The Wisconsin Timber Rattlers, Class A affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers, will hearken back to the era of the Atari 7800, Sega SG-1000, and Nintendo’s Famicom for one game this season. The team unveiled specialty caps and jerseys featuring 8-bit […]

I'm all for the 8-bit theme, but why space?  Should have been an 8-bit forest, like Pitfall.

 

Gimme an 8-bit space theme for a team like the Comets or Rockets or something and I would love it.

Maybe we're just spoiled in this part of the country where the Northwoods League has avoided the fly by night reputation of a lot of college summer leagues and has actually proven to be more stable than many affiliated minor leagues.  Something they've done with a league full of teams with dignified identities..... and the Green Bay Booyah.

"Traverse City Pit Spitters" ain't swimming in the deep end of the "dignified identities" pool, either...

Yeah. Can't say I'm a fan of the last couple identities they unveiled. I hope it doesn't become a trend because, at this point, being a league full of teams with (mostly) "normal" names really makes them stand out amongst the lower levels of baseball. Especially when a surprisingly large amount of them (Mallards, Honkers, Woodchucks, Loggers, etc.) actually carry on a "Northwoods" theme.

BlueClaws add beach-themed alternates

February 6, 2020 - 19:04 PM

The Lakewood BlueClaws, Class A affiliate of the Philadelphia Phillies, have long embraced their location along the iconic Jersey Shore as part of their brand. It’s not just that the team is named for that most delicious part of the […]

Is this the norm with jerseys now? The logo appears to be stitched on by it's edges only. It looks cheap. Gone are the days of real textured embroidery?

 

The beach ball theme hat works. Jerseys are decent, except for the cheap looking logo application. I've see it with some sublimated jerseys too. So many themes and jersey combos, they go with the lowest common denominator for quality.

Inland Empire 66ers wonder what might have been as Cherubs

February 11, 2020 - 13:23 PM

When the Inland Empire 66ers gave their logos a much-needed overhaul in 2014, the team considered going a step further and completely rebranding. One nickname that they seriously considered was Cherubs. That identity would have been a play on the […]

Very torn on this one.  I rather like when MiLB clubs which play in the same market as their affiliate adopt an identity that pays homage to the parent club.

But seeing the logos side-by-side, I'm glad they stuck with 66ers.
