It's very retro looking honestly, reminds of the teams original logos more.

I prefer it.

Also, can you link to the image? We can't post images on here directly, it slows down the servers

sorry about that. I like it. Its a clean new look for a new era. The Astros are past the days of Bagwell, CB, Oswalt, Berkman, Clemens, and Pettitte. Its time to move on.

I hate the new owner it is so hard staying loyal to your team when he sends everyone packing, swaps to a new division, and even changes your teams uniforms. I have a gray and black retro hat with the star and the H. I like the logo a lot but those navy and orange colors are awful and need to be used for retro uniforms only. I really liked the white/black/red and the normal current logo.

a couple things.

the astros have historically included navy blue and orange. those were our colors.

drayton mclane changed to the current red/black scheme because they mirrored his company. with him gone, there is literally no reason to stay with that scheme. it has no place in astros history. if anything, id like to go back to the "space"ey uniforms from the late 90's...the gold and navy ones....

i was in the same boat as you about crane. he just seemed like a schemer. but hes done an amazing job thus far. hiring luhnow was the smartest move hes made. luhnow has proven to be very morey-like...only making good moves and staying away from bad ones. i mean, look at this past draft class. luhnow wins through the draft (look at the cardinals...they won last years WS and got pretty far this year)

crane has done a fine job thus far. i mean, look at what he's inheriting. no **** he wants to clean house...

Drayton took this team through blue/gold, new cap and a new logo to an inexplicapale change of black (surprise, surprise!), brick red and a new log and cap. I have been an Astros fan since 1965 and their colors are blue and orange with a cap that has a H over an orange star. Drayton ripped the identity of the team away from longtime fans. It was a joke!

Thank you Mr. Crane for bringing our colors, caps and identity back to us! It may be a new league (which I do not like), but I understand that Mr. Selig had a gun to the head of anyone who would buy the team. He is building the farm system back that Drayton totally ignored and ripped to shreds. It may take three to five more seasons, but this team will be back. Thanks for doing this right way, Jim Crane.

it's alright. I like it when teams go a little retro, unlike the Marlins that went way the wrong way. Marlins = worst uni's in the game.

I really like them, especially the gray away uniform. The red-orange color with the black trim looks sharp.

SpecialFNK
11-02-2012, 11:00 PM
my first thought was why did the Astros even need to change their uniform. but maybe it fits since they are switching leagues and going to the AL. new start, new logo/uniform.
this is OK, nothing OMG awesome. personally I liked the logo they had with the open star. this new one actually looks boring. a capital white H over an orange star.
at least it's not bad like some of the logos/uniforms they have had in the past.

The Marlins have the straight orange uniforms and the Mets have had them in the past in spring training as well.

As for orange in their uniforms period, the Mets have only had that since 1962 and the Tigers since the 70s.
