In 30 Teams, 30 Posts, I write a post (of varying amounts of seriousness) about every MLB team in some way in the lead-up to (and aftermath of) the beginning of the 2016 season. Earlier installments can be found here. This is the Padres entry.
I know nothing about the Padres. Okay, not nothing, but they are probably one of my biggest weak-spots. I… basically know nothing about them. Oh, I know Matt Kemp is still pretty good, and both Tyson Ross and James Shields are not bad pitchers, despite the beating the Dodgers gave Ross on Monday. Oh, and Will Myers is still a guy!
But…. yeah, I really don’t know much about them. And I won’t insult you by claiming otherwise.
So instead, let’s talk about how awesome the logo is:
I mean, look at that. It combines the best portions of previous Padres graphical identities into a nice combo.
And that’s cool.
