At 9:00pm Friday night, the Florida Marlins officially unveil their new logos and uniforms, transforming themselves overnight into the Miami Marlins.

The colors look very “sweet.”
Its so 70’s looking. Are they going to bring back bell bottoms and huge afros too?
“Rainbow” comes to mind..
Nice unis. Color coordinating with the Dolphins and Hurricanes. Good luck getting the Heat on board.
And boy will they be hideous!
Most of it, I like. But the “M” looks terrible.
An abomination. The only thing worse is the planned kaleidoscopic psychedelic scoreboard display when they hit a home run. Now that Florida has demonstrated it is completely incapable of becoming baseball-friendly (MLB only, of course) they should contract the teams. I’M KIDDING (barely). I always thought Orlando would be a more logical place for an MLB team in Florida.
They've had great talent on the field and in management during their short history and their attendance has been pathetic. It will contine to be pathetic until they move to a place which actually has a market for baseball in the summertime.
I think the stupidest thing MLB has ever done (aside from keeping Bud Selig) is to put franchises in Florida and Arizona. Arizona managed to make it moderately successful with the dry heat and in-stadium swimming pools. Florida can't do that. Most of their customer base has gone back north for the summer and they aren't going to get it back with the year-rounders.
New uniforms, Yea or Nay.....
All they had to do was put a sombrero on the fish.....
And the Marlins have the nucleus for a potentially great team, too.
Whoever or whatever designed these uniforms, caps and logo needs to go back to what they know best. Hairdressing and interior decorating.
Actually, like so many things wrong with baseball, it goes back to Jeff Loria who just loves him some modern art.
This is all at his behest.
NOW WHY THE MAN WHO TORPEDOED THE EXPOS IS ALLOWED TO OWN ANY BASEBALL TEAM LET ALONE MINE IS A QUESTION I DON’T HAVE THE ANSWER TO UNLESS IT INVOLVES A BOATLOAD OF MONEY AND THE FACT THAT BUD SELIG IS CORRUPT AS ALL HELL
Much like the baseball team in suburban Dallas, the folks in Miami will have a team with a geographic name.
The Texas Texas lost to the St. Louis Cardinals in the World Series and now the Miami Miami will host the defending World Champion Cardinals on Opening Day 2012.
South Florida is Cuban and Puerto Rican, not Mexican.
OK...ditch the sombrero...add a cigar in its mouth and a rum in its fin.
They are probably going to land Pujols.
Perhaps - but I will never haul my kids another hour drive south into central Miami to get to the Orange Bowl. All the fans north of Hollywood are going to say Adios after getting snagged in the Miami post-game traffic.
One of the most entertaining sports events I have seen in person is the Pryor-Arguello fight at the old Orange Bowl, where the new baseball stadium now sits.
When I lived there they were the Miami Marlins.
Didn’t know they had changed their name to the Fla. Marlins.
BTW, I think the Denver Broncos helmets are flaky also. A gay horse head.
