Report: New Marlins logo leaked

The new logo for the Miami Marlins has been leaked, BizofBaseball.com reports.

The new logo ties into the color palette of the new stadium, as sections of seats will vary by color. The Marlins will rename themselves from Florida to Miami after the year to accompany the move from Dolphin Stadium to their new stadium, built on the former grounds of the Miami Orange Bowl.

My take? I don't like it. It lacks imagination, as the "M" is very plain, and there are a lot of colors at work. I can't imagine the new logo performing well in apparel sales, which was a concern with the old logo as the general population doesn't care for wearing teal. How wearing yellow, orange and light blue is any better is to be determined. You'll notice that the swoop on the left of the new logo is a the shape of a marlin with no identifying features as the current logo has.

Keep in mind that this is only a rumor, and the new logo may not be what has been leaked.

Yuck.  This seems completely retro to me.  Hopefully they leaked a fake!

Report: New Marlins logo leaked

Every time I see a new sports logo, I ask myself, "Could an 8-year-old do it better?"  And often the answer is YES.  This is one of those cases.  Just ... terrible.  Be for real Miami/Florida - take pride in yourself.

It looks like the marlin is humping the M.  The whole thing is a bit funny (not haha).
