Miami Marlins

Postby Endless Mike on Sat Nov 12, 2011 9:35 am

The Marlins just unveiled their new logo and uniforms. They look hideous. Even the name sounds a lot more awkward than Florida Marlins. I thought the teal and black with pinstripes really worked for them.

This franchise is going to set world records for ugliness. Something like this is going to be in their outfield, apparently:

Those are bad. In terms of new franchises in the four major sports (last 20 years or so), I thought the Marlins were one of the few that actually designed a decent logo. I think the Houston Texans did the best job. There is a long list of relatively new franchises with horrible logos/uniforms:

Carolina Panthers
Jacksonville Jaguars
Baltimore Ravens
Tennessee Titans
Toronto Raptors
Phoenix Coyotes
Atlanta Thrashers
Arizona Diamondbacks
Tampa Bay Rays
Charlotte Bobcats
Charlotte/New Orleans Hornets
Vancouver/Memphis Grizzlies

Crap all over the place. And you can the add the rebranding of the Patriots and Broncos to that list. Other franchises like the Pistons and 76ers were smart to return to their roots.

Update - I'm sure there are others out there, but here's a picture from the new stadium.

I thought that thing was a joke but it's actually real and it's going to light up, move and make noise every time a Marlins player hits a home run (which should happen a lot with Stanton on that team). It looks like something straight out of the Casa Bonita episode of South Park. :dildodog

It is awesome and I love it and it totally befits a shit show of a franchise that is the Florida Miami Marlins.

Another team that can't hit. The rotation has held up their end of the bargain.

And this can't make their executives feel good - the ballpark is just a month old and they're averaging 77% capacity. Say what you will about Met fans this year, but at least Citi was a tough ticket when it opened.

Yeah but comparing the New York baseball market to Miami's is disingenuous at best.

Looks like the Stanton injury sealed their fate. At least it's going to make for interesting TV for "The Franchise", which is awesome for anybody that has Showtime.

I hadn't heard this. I was so relieved when I saw the deal was with Toronto and not the Yankees.

So Miami rented all these guys for a year just to sell tickets to their new ballpark, and they even managed to fail at that. 12 out of 16 in NL total attendance.

Josh Johnson alone is worth the two prospects the Jays gave up. The rest is gravy.

The Marlins will have $20 million on their payroll for next year after this trade goes through. What a joke.

At what point does MLB institute a salary min? Or does agreement to that open the door too much for a cap?

The owners wouldn't sign off on changing the CBA without getting something in return. The MLBPA wouldn't agree to a cap, but maybe they'd agree to a structured bonus schedule for draft picks like the NFLPA did last year. When teams are drafting on signability instead of need, the system is broken. A bonus schedule would help foster competitive balance and put more money in the pockets of veterans.

They implemented widespread changes to the draft in the last CBA that applied to the draft earlier this year. And FWIW a lot of small market teams were the biggest spenders in the draft.
