This crap looks like it's from Miami Vice.  Here's their new hat logo (on a shirt):

if they made the colors a bit darker and put it on a black background then it might not look all that bad.

I still think hiring on Ozzie Guillen as their manager is even more amusing.  I guess if you can't be relevant through actual play then media attention for managerial drama and a logo change is a reasonable standby.

The black unis aren't too horrible, but yeah, I don't care for the new logo.

Horrible!!! I CAN'T WAIT to get a hat!

That thing is an unholy combo of the Dallas Stars old 'Uterus' jersey with Islanders "Fisherman" (someone needs to post pics).

So, so, bad. I love it!

Won't last 2 years.

The uniforms or the team?  Because no one went to see them before, and odds are won't come to see them now, I'm expecting the uniforms to last longer than the franchise.

Nah - They got a new stadium, that should be good for a few years. Those uni's and that logo are doomed.

I just got a chill from seeing them again.

I can see color wise, but the logo is just awful.  I think the dolphins have one of the better logos in sports, but this isn't even high school level quality, imo.

The first time I saw this logo, the colors were a lot more pastel.  In pastel it wasnt as bad. These are hideously bright.  If I were on the team, I would plead with management to allow us to wear the black unis both home and away, they look 1000 time better than the white.

Apparently, Jeff Loria, the owner of the Marlins, was the main person who designed the new logos and designs of the uniforms. Yikes.

I can't stop looking at it!

The "M" looks like a neon "M" that would be in the word "MALL" of an '80's strip mall!

Oh, God, the suck!

I've been a Marlins fan since the beginning but now that they have destroyed the beloved orange bowl for their stadium and now this...

Go Brewers! (hey I can identify with beer)

Also have you guys seen the center field monstrosity that will light up for home runs (no this isn't a joke)

That is just awesome!  It appears that the Marlins are going for that oft overlooked "acid dropping" demographic.

I was thinking more like the overlooked gay baseball fans.

now they should find a way to put oLED's on their uniforms to include that on their backs.  just think, it'd be a great distraction if you're on base and trying to steal- the baseman would be too busy being hypnotized by it (or laughing at it/you) to alert the pitcher.
