Well, it's different.......

"The new logo, designed by Toronto-based Brandid, has a blue jay with a silver beak extending from the J in the word Jays. The three-dimensional metallic letters are white and silver surrounded by blue and black trim. Team caps will sport the bird with letter J."

Will this lead to the Devil Rays being known as the Rays? How will we deal with the confusion of two teams known simply as "Sox?"

(does so, per DJ Ran's request)

"Market research suggested fans felt the current logo was tired and dated."

Well, if they think the current logo's dated, wait'll they see what they say about this one in a coupla years.

In a random fact, one of the original names bandied about for the Jays was the Blue Sox.

I don't mind the logo that much. It just means that my current Blue Jays stuff is now stylishly retro. Booyah!

I do NOT like the powder-blue hats, though.

"Of course, the club name remains the Toronto Blue Jays as it is an important and cherished part of the team's identity and history."

Well thank GOD that the logo was neither important NOR cherished, so they could change it!

It's not too bad....but it has to be seen in context with the new uniforms to get the full effect.

At least they didn't drop "Blue"(of course how could they? They're owned by Labatt's for pete's sake...)

I'm happy about this. With the original logo, it always took me a second or two to put the blue jay's head together, starting from the eye, and then to the beak, and then around clock-wise. I also loathed the current one with the jay holding the bat, and just felt the maple leaf tattoo on its arm looked tacky.

With this one, I like the colours of it, but am just not too in love with the lettering. I'll wait to judge the new uniforms when they don't have Trish Stratus modelling it for the cameras.

Incidentally, these are the new jerseys and hats:


The jerseys are ok, the road jersey is an interesting, unusual darker gray. But the sky blue hat and the 3rd hat are just a tad too much.

Obviously, I gotta get me one of those dark jerseys, but on the whole the whole logo/jersey combo gets a big thumbs DOWN from me.

When your "icon" team in the area (the Leafs) has such a classic look, why would you try to be a new and hip with yours if you are trying to sell more stuff? Even the Raptors unis are cooler that the new Blue Jays duds. They should've gone more retro instead of all "new".



We're 0-1, but the Huskies are still winning the Pac-10, and even if we don't at least we don't look like a bunch of frickin' yellow idiots like Oregon.

I wonder if the NFL's Arizona Cardinals going to get some sort of compensation from the Jays for stealing their logo... Which of course bags the question. Why on earth would anyone steal anything from the Arizona Cardinals

Why do they look like Tampa's jerseys?



Taken from the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review:

Accusations have surfaced about Julian Tavarez doctoring the baseball with a foreign substance that he hides on the bill of his cap.

''It's ridiculous,'' Tavarez said. ''They checked my hat last year, too, and never found anything. They're just trying to get inside my head. But I won't let them.'' Just to demonstrate that no one was getting inside his head, Tavarez decided to ramble on for another hour or two and provide a quote of the year possibility. ''Some people like skinny women. I like fat women. Some people like young women. I like older women. Some people like poor women. I like rich women,'' Tavarez said. ''Some people like clean hats. I like my dirty hat.''

P.S they're not owned by Labatt's anymore and haven't been for a few years.

I like the "Toronto" uni although their logo from a couple of logo's back was probably the best they've had.

They're OK, but I like the old school hats alot more. It was cool to have Deny Dent there, he is a f#cking awesome artist.

That's gray? It looked more like purple to me... almost like if they merged the Diamondbacks and Devil Rays... euwwwww.

NHS: Swiping Arizona's players seemed to work for the Bucs.

Nope... he's with the Panthers. Didn't know Proehl was ever on the Cards, though.

Wonder if this will lead to a playoff berth.

(Oh, you mean that wasn't the point of changing uniforms? Oops, sorry.)

That sky blue is making the Houston Astros' 1970's-era unis look over their shoulder.

The Red Sox were 10 1/2 games out at one point, and virtually everyone in Red Sox Nation had conceded the division to the Yankees. Now, just 3 1/2 games behind, these next two series mean a whole Hell of a lot more than just bragging rights.
