Miami Marlins Unveil New Uniforms: The Miami Marlins have released the uniforms they'll wear in their first season under the new name. "Overall, the look fits Miami -- it's a little garish and something you won't find anywhere else, but that's how it should be. It's also not a throwback, which fits in with the futuristic looking ballpark," writes C. Trent Rosecrans of CBS Sports.

There's no "I" in Miam!

Well, ok, there's one "I" in Miam, but there's certainly not two.

Why does this link to reddit rather than to the CBS Sports article? Weird.

Anyway, I personally don't find them that offensive. It's not like they're swimming upstream against the force of a huge historical legacy or anything.

Also, for the record, its nice to see them looking a little like the classic Astros.

Dunno, that's pretty ugly.

The gangbangers in "La Eme" will have new colors. #13 will be popular !

That's a typo.

It's supposed to be Maim.

Somewhat understated, actually. I like them.

I'm surprised by how much I don't hate them. Aaaaaaaas a matter of fact, I'm kinda partial to them.

To really get that look, they need the bowling-shirt styling.

I love you, beaverboard. I almost never laugh out loud at anything, but I laughed out loud at that.

And then, there's ugly.

Are those pink pants with the black jerseys? Interesting, and possibly better suited to shuffleboard or bocce ball.

I love you too, Joey, but we're going to have to show some discipline and self control. I'm a stay at home family man.

I really wish there was a "like comment" feature here sometimes. :D

I like the uniforms, I'm not wild on the hat logo.
