Damaso Garcia would have burned these uniforms.

I dont get it at all. I agree that they should have gone to a more retro feel then a "new" approach.

As for the name change to the Jays, Rogers has stated they were going to do this for a while now. They are concerned that people still think of Labbats when the team is called the Blue Jays. True story. So they are dropping the Blue.

I see they have taken the color blue out of the uniforms also.

The toronto jays.

get used to it.

I personally think it sucks.

One of the major concerns up here with the new logo is the dropping of the red maple leaf. Some people are upset that we've gone from being a Canadian representative in America's game to just another generic team.

I like the dark grey "Toronto" uni(although it does look purple in that pic) and the black jersey's not bad either. But they just switched to the Red T with the muscular Jay last year! Let's get some consistency.

If they do cut out blue from the name along with the uni change, to me it's a "New Coke" like mistake, maybe they can call them the Toronto New Jays.

Goddamn Rogers.
There is no corporation I hate any more on this planet. They are single-handedly trying to ruin baseball in Toronto.

"When this bogus term alternative rock was being thrown at every '70s retro rehash folk group, we were challenging people to new sonic ideas. If some little snotty anarchist with an Apple Mac and an attitude thinks he invented dance music and the big rock group is coming into his territory, [that's] ridiculous." - Bono, 1997

Excellent point. I was actually at Wednesday night's game vs the Yanks, and a bunch of us were having this conversation. I remember being at the press conference when Ted Rogers bought the team. He was alluding to having deep pockets, etc. to acquire talent. Apart from really hanging on to Delgado, what the hell have they done?

And they wonder why we're lucky to get 20,000 people out to a game in the now-antiquated SkyDome, when Rogers isn't willing to shell out the $$$ to make us WANT to go see games. What, the new LOGO wasn't enough to bring in new people?

I still go because I love the game. But I wonder how much longer it will be before the shrinking attendance is a huge problem.

An interview WHAT? I said, an interview WHAT? A conversation WHAT? A chat WHAT? DialogueWHAT? Exclusive interview with Stoned Cold in the latest Inside The Ropes

Hey look, this team had to go through a re-building stage. The previous regime proved they couldn't do it, so the Jays brought in Mr. Ricciardi to do it.

Slowly, but surely they are doing it. In this market there is no way you can just keep shelling out the $$$ like they were. I don't care if you're Ted Rogers or not.

I don't really give a flying f%$^ what the logo or uniforms are. What I see from a team building standpoint makes me more than optomistic about the future.

Of course, I am not sure how optomistic one can be when the Yankees and Red Sox are in your division. Perhaps we should ask MLB to move us to the Central Division...

Well, if by "did it", you mean "clinched the wild card"... (Thanks, Melvin Mora!)
