    Padres Change logo for Spring traing caps

    "He's getting the best job in baseball."

    Not sure why this is here but yeah that's all I saw at first. Though I don't for a second think it was on purpose or anything.

    Their colors keep looking more and more like the Pirates' as the years go by and that bothers me more!

    I think the cap is ugly. Why do teams insist on using drab brown as one of their colors?

    I agree. this logo sucks. I also don't understand why the Padres go with brown.

    they should have been able to see this resembles a swastika and known better to even go forward with this.

    There have always been ugly uniforms, but the Padres have often lead the way in ugly.

    The Clippers spent millions with a marketing company and what they came up with looked ugly to me, but that doesn't always work out. Chris Bangle was reviled for his design work on BMWs in the late 2000s, but over the next decade his design language spread to pretty much every car company ... maybe the whole NBA will look like the Clippers over the next decade. I think maybe the Padres keep thinking the rest of the MLB will copy them.

    I'll take this brown and yellow throwback design over their ultra generic navy blue and white jerseys of the last decade or so.

    I doubt that was an accident. Could have been, but very unlikely. Just some *** hole tryina sneak something in, lmao

    You know Hitler also had his buddies wear shirts in these Padres throwback colors. They called them the 'brownshirts' in case you've been in a coma and never listen to the media. Coincidence? I don't think so. Now about those so-called 'monks'...

    I'm looking at this thing closer, lmao, that's hilarious. He lined up the bottom of the s and the d to get that look! That's why the side SD logo doesnt resemble a swastika at all while the front one is like clear the **** smack dab in the middle swastika, lol, clever bastard

    It could totally be an accident. If you look at the original plans for the Warriors new arena it looked like a toilet. They spent millions and nobody noticed until the pictures were released to the public.

    That said, even without the swastika look, it's a muddy overly complex design.

    The best part of it is that the Padres probably tossed a pile of dough at some graphic design consulting company to come up with this pile of crap (though I bet said company is probably run by a relative of someone in the Padres organization).
