Not as good as pre-2003, but better than their current logo.

And with John Rooney's Bill James comment, I lose a lot of respect for the announcer...

What was his comment? Did he say something about how Bill James is a self-important jackass? Because he is ...

Another reason why John Rooney is one of the best announcers in the game.

Man, how many times have the Blue Jays changed their logo in the last 5 years now? Like 4?

That one kind of looks stupid anyways. What was wrong with the one they used in the mid-90s?

This new logo almost looks like an NFL team logo.

This one is sharp-lookin', but kind of AAAish. I like the one with the jay head and maple leaf. I guess it's nice to be simply S-O-X sometimes.

Reminds me of the Ravens logo.

It's called "let's change our logo again to see how many fans we can get to buy new merchandise..."

Speaking of which, did anyone else notice Seattle's black jerseys last night at Tampa Bay? Since when did they get black jerseys? I knew they had the white, grey, and navy ones, but when did they get black ones? Maybe they've had them a while and I just haven't noticed them, but last night was the first time I had seen them.

Seattle has black? That's news to me.

Baseball is all about tradition. I guarantee that in about 5 years the Blue Jays go back to their 1989 jerseys since they will be "classic" by then.

Let's hope the Sox keep all of their jerseys forever and never change again. We have the best 3 jerseys in baseball.

Bobby:

I get the Mariners a lot via Fox Sports Northwest and those aren't black, they are a dark sea green.

Yes....Bring back the Home VEST look. I thought Vest Looks were a bit much, but THEY LOOK EXCELLENT WITH THE SOX COLOR SCHEME. The sewn on sleeve looks Stupid.

Something about that new Blue Jays logo just screams "minor league hockey" to me. Their original 70's-era logo is 20x better.

Lip, Ok I thought that they only had the standard colors, but the highlights they had on ESPN last night from their game made them look awful black when they were showing Boone and some others. I'm sure that it couldn't be the fine lighting they have inside of Tropicana field that did it. :smile:

It's funny you noted how the new logo looks like minor league hockey. In Toronto that would probably be considered high praise. :smile:

I think it is also noteworthy that the original Jays uniforms (70's-90's) had the logo on the front of the jersey--just like a hockey sweater.

And here is the punchline to that well-known (and droll) joke you've all heard before: "So both fans can watch the hockey game!"

<rim shot>

"Thank you. I'll be here all week..."
