Between the unis and the monstrosity in CF, the Marlins are obviously locking up the “Blind” demographic.

those things are more abominable than some of the worst minor league uniforms i’ve seen. that can’t be what they’re going with. that’s just lazy.

I gotta say, this definitely is bringing out a strong reaction amongst people. There is no such thing as bad publicity. Besides, the design is so fitting for the organization. I believe that in time this style will be the norm or at least we’ll get so used to the horrid-ness of it that future generations of clashing-lazy-OKC-ripoff will stem from this.
I am fully on board with every design element of these newly alliterative Miami Marlins. Miami is a ridiculous place, and it deserves a ridiculous baseball team aesthetic. Yes to the goofy hat design, yes to the insane peyote trip in center field, yes to these ice cream pop-looking uniforms.
Eh, they’d actually be alright without the yellow brim and piping.
And as far as complaining about the new logo and unis, does everyone realize that the former logo was a dead marlin (poorly drawn to look like it is jumping out of water) into a large Gothic-style letter F? And there was an abundance of turquoise? And pinstripes for no discernible reason? Is anyone going to miss this?
These uniforms are decidedly not ‘Pistols at Dawn’.

I want these drawings to be 100% accurate. It would be fantastic if the socks and undershirt worn with the orange jerseys really are orange in the front and black in the back. And who wears the pants two inches above the shoes?

What a second-class organization. But with Loria at the helm, who would expect anything less?
