MLB

  • As mentioned in Monday’s Ticker, Cardinals C Yadier Molina wore a commemorative mask last night to mark the record-breaking start between him and P Adam Wainwright. Reader Andrew Hermeling says Molina was having trouble with the mask and changed back to his regular mask by the top of the third. But the commentators claimed the mask change was because Wainwright was pulled before the top of the sixth.

    I appreciate the shout out about the black Georgia State uniforms!

    However, it looks like a completely new uniform template from UA. I don’t think I’ve seen that mesh around the collar, or the UA logo on the collar. Almost looks like an adidas jersey that they just rebranded.

    I have no idea how such things are created, but it seems very strange that whoever created the mural of WR Jerry Jeudy took the time & effort to change the number font like that.
    Any graphic artists care to weigh in why that might have been done?

    I was a bit put off by the portugal jersey when I first saw the leak, but seeing it coupled with the shorts on C. Ronaldo, I can kind of appreciate it a bit more

    It still looks pretty brutal to me. I get that the proportion of green to red is likely supposed to mimic Portugal’s flag, but there’s something about the execution that just looks wrong.

    Baseball returning to Hinchliffe Stadium is terrific news (as is NASCAR racing’s return to North Wilkesboro…smaller story but I know you’ve been following it), though I’m curious as to what the baseball configuration will look like there.

    Don’t know if you saw it live but he spent the whole first inning messing with the ear area. Must not have fit correctly

    In the Mariners’ hispanic heritage jersey, they included Brazil, which is weird, since it’s not related to Spain – just Portugal. To include Brazil, it would be a Iberian heritage event.

    I was feeling neutral-ish until I realized they look remarkably similar to a Monster Energy Drink can. Now I don’t like them as much.

    It’s also an overall color aesthetic and idea that has already been attempted in the “MINN” city jersey from a few years ago, so it’s not very original. The blacked-out numbering and the work mark “fangs” are the most unique, and I don’t much care for either.
