Pandas are trash
I hate that Hank Aaron Stadium is going to stand empty with the departure of the Mobile... ummm... what were they again?  Mystics?  Bay Rays?  I don't remember.  I guess maybe I should have gone to some games.  

Anyways... When they decided to move to Huntsville and then the city chose Trash Pandas as their mascot?  Well, I was encouraged.  But they flubbed it with the new uniforms.  https://www.al.com/news/2019/06/rocket-city-trash-pandas-unveil-baseball-uniforms.html

Had a chance to do something fun, dynamic, bold -- like the name.  Instead they bored the blue hell out of me with these lame duds.  So much potential tossed in the trash can.  

I could have done better.

Re: Pandas are trash
Trash Pandas is an awesome name, though. I love how Minor League teams embrace these crazy names. 

A few others.  It took me a minute to get used to the Montgomery Biscuits, but that's pretty cool.  Some of my favorites are the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp, Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs, New Orleans Baby Cakes and my favorite....the Amarillo Sod Poodles.
You guys ever thought about the fact that the guy who coined the term, "coined the term", coined the term?

Name is great.  Just a massive marketing whiff with the sucky merchandise.  The uniforms are terrible.  I was gonna get a trash panda hat just to have it.  But no.  

This is about the best of the bunch and it's not inspiring me at all.   




It looks like a girl raccoon for starters.  One with a big cheerleader bow on its head.  It's got one tooth, no body and a tail with stars.  It's just bad.

At first glance, it looks like one of those Yu-gi-oh or whatever that Japanese cartoon crap is called.

My son caught one of those the other day.  Said it was worth 40,000 thunder bolts
Now I may be an idiot, but there is one thing I am not, sir, and that, sir, is an idiot.

Amarillo Sod Poodles.  BTW, I had to search the Googled Chromes and a sod poodle is a slang name for Prarie Dog.  Not that this mascot looks anything like a poodle or a prarie dog.

I can’t stand the New Orleans Baby Cakes. 

The Zephyrs name was much better, and even though the team name came from Denver, paid homage to the old Pontchartrain Beach roller coaster. 

And the Baby cakes mascot is something out of the book of Revelation.

Looks like a short, pregnant cheerleader.  

The others are a little better, but I still do not like.

Re: Pandas are trash
There used to be a minor hockey town out of Macon (ga) called the Macon Woopee.

Same town also has a minor league baseball team called the Macon Bacon. And their logo is literally a strip of bacon standing up looking mean as fokk gripping and ripping.

I'd buy their hats (especially the mexican themed ones) if they had anything other than Vanilla Ice douche bro flat brim fitted hats.

This might be my favorite.  The Whoopie Pie hat.
