This is one in series of quick takes on various logo updates for 2020. No one has the energy for clever deep dives right now, myself included. So I try to get right to the point.
The Toronto Blue Jays broke my heart in 1993, and it wasn’t Mitch Williams’ fault. But here’s what really bothers me about the franchise: they have this color scheme in their wheelhouse, but their 2020 logo tweak keeps the far too dark blue and far too streamlined jay head of recent years.
I’m just going to be honest. The dark blue looks terrible against powder-blue unis, which is the only thing most people want to see the Jays in. The darker blue augments an already too-modern, too-sleek blue jay. Just go back to this already.
