The Miami Marlins introduced their new uniforms Friday night in an anticipated event that saw the franchise transition from the Florida Marlins. The Marlins are expected to debut their four combos next season whereas players in the Arizona Fall League have already begun rocking them for game action.
In reviewing Friday's Marlins party, I felt that the stage was rather small and the show rushed. What happened to having a runway and letting the feeling sink in on one particular uniform combo versus throwing it all on us in less than a few minutes?
The Pitbull concert lasted longer than the introduction and fashion show of the Miami Marlins, and I felt it should have been reversed. After debuting the uniforms, why stay for the concert that sounded and felt awful after Pitbull was at an awards show the night before in Las Vegas?
Also, I hated the fact the event was streamed online when you can encounter slow and shaky quality, which was the case last night when I tried to juggle a live blog and a video at the same time.
Regardless, it's time to rate the uniforms the Marlins have on. I'll be honest—seeing all the mock-ups and leaks, I felt the Marlins were headed for a disaster, but I've grown to love them, some of them that is.
