Since moving to LA, the Dodgers have had the same interlocking LA design since 1958.
Its iconic and classic, and like the NY Yankees logo, it transcends sports and has become ingrained in pop culture.
My new take on the Dodgers logo plays up on the Hollywood aspect of LA. The A becomes a star, and like some alternate versions of the Dodgers logo, there is some silver, which can be linked to the silver screen, aka movies.
It’s definitely different. Is it any good? You guys let me know.
Here is my latest logo concept – The Cubs.
I know what you might be thinking, I took another logo and made it all angular and sharp with no curves. And you’re right.
But there isn’t a whole lot to do to change a standard looking C logo to make it different.
The Cubs have had a few different types of C’s over their history.
In my logo concept, I took a combination of these different elements. Taking the most current C logo, making it more blocky and giving it a slight tail like the wishbone C (famously used by the Chicago Bears and Cincinnati Reds).
The flared out opening of the C kind of gives it an aggressive look I think. The diamond shape is also purposely done to relate to the baseball diamond.
What do you guys think of this one? Is it still recognizable as the Cubs but with a new take on it?
There are many classic, timeless logos that have adorned the uniforms of teams over the years. Many of them are iconic and even have affected life outside the sports world. My idea in this concept logo series is to take some of the most classic, timeless, revered logos and change them up a bit. These are logos that people would never want their team to mess with. There’s too much history connected to these logos. But my purpose, I will be doing that very thing.
First up, I have two of the most iconic symbols in the baseball world. The Yankees and Red Sox logos.
With both of these logos, gone are the curves and rounded edges. Everything is angular and edgier. It still has the same basic shape, just modified.
I hope to take some other classic logos, from all around sports, not just the MLB, and put my twisted take on theirs as well.
What do you guys think of these?
Giancarlo Stanton is quite the player.
Dude just hits bombs at will. He’s only 25 and has got years ahead of him to continue doing the same. The Marlins want to keep him. He’s the only guy I can name off the top of my head on the Marlins. Hell, I bet he’s the only guy Marlins fans (all 10 of them) can name off the top of their collective heads too.
That’s why talks for keeping him have reached the (que loud voice over voice) THE $320 MILLION DOLLAR RANGE (echo).
There’s really no other way to say it. Clayton Kershaw can’t do diddly poo in the playoffs. Guy is practically un-hittable in the regular season, but when it’s October and the season is on the line, he can’t get it done.
Something with the 7th innings are his kryptonite this year.Last night it was the 3 run homer he gave up to Matt Adams that gave the Cards a 1 run lead.
In the first game, he was charged for 8 runs in the 7th as the Cardinals went on to win another 1 run game.
Kershaw is now 1-4 in the post season with 4 straight losses.
Well here it is. They day Red Sox fans have been waiting for (you know, since this season was in the toilet pretty early on). Rusney Castillo will make his MLB debut tonight after basically playing in all the minor league playoffs. Continue reading “Big Day for Sox Fans, Castillo To Make MLB Debut Tonight”
He is what he is, a Legend.
Looks like this may happen real soon.
Sox get Allen Craig and Joe Kelly.
Boston Globe – The Red Sox, a major league source said Monday, have been informed what kind of contract lefthander Jon Lester is seeking and that has led to the team putting its ace on the trade market.That could be an indication the team has little willingness to sign Lester despite public comments suggesting otherwise. Lester is seeking what was described as a “competitive offer consistent with the market” but nothing that would be considered precedent-setting. The Red Sox made Lester a low-ball offer of four years and $70 million in spring training that was swiftly rejected. The sides since have said negotiations were tabled until after the season.
Well done ownership. You took the ace of the staff and basically drove him out of town with lowball offers. This guy should have been locked up. Look what the Bruins did this past year with Tuukka and Bergy, two of the most important Bruins. They got them for 8 years. Sox were giving out huge contracts to Carl Crawford a few years ago to do nothing and now they have the best pitcher and they somehow can’t afford to spend the money?
His next start is Wednesday against the Blue Jays. I hope it’s not his last in a Sox uniform.
