I like it. It looks familiar...is the blue jay a retro/reprise from an earlier logo?
I also like the new Orioles logo, - a return to the cartoonish oriole they wore back in their hey day.

the new logo is a pretty sad attempt of the retro one.

plenty of people ripping on it. while the following is very nitpicky, there are a lot of things that I agree with.

LOL I'm sorry but whoever did this has too much time on their hands and put way too much thought into it.

Most definitely agreed...... I take it the Leafs were off for a couple of days, and some Torontonian was VERY bored.

Looks like the critique of a professional to me. Not that they are 100% correct... but it's well thought out.

I love this logo along with the Orioles change. The marlins, not so much.

biggest gripe with the blue jays new logo is that there is way too much going on.
I used to design logos, and having 2 different typefaces is tough to pull off, and the leaf stem not connecting with the baseball is very bothersome.

I like the colors though.

my favorite mlb hat of alltime (pictured in cowboychris' avatar) is returning for select mariners home games this year!

The logo on the cap worn by Bautista with just the blue jay and red maple leaf is, in my estimation, a pretty cool graphic. The bigger, more elaborate logo definitely loses something in the translation.
As big a Yankees fan as I am, I think the Cardinals logo with the bird on the bat is perhaps the all-time MLB classic.
One more thing, - I saw the Indians on a few occasions last year wear cream colored retro uniforms with caps with a retro ''C''. The whole look was absolutely awesome, - one of the most attractive MLB uniforms ever.

"Toronto" not being centered at the top of the logo bothers me. Probably should be the same style lettering as "Blue Jays". Could shrink the leaf just a little, too.

I think if they would have dropped the leaf completely and used the same font for "Blue Jays" I'd like it a lot. I will say, I hated the previous "Jays" logo so anything would be an improvement there.

My favorite current uni is the Saint Louis Cardinals and while I don't know if it is my least favorite, my Rangers wild west saloon font is pretty silly. Favorite all time is the early 1970s White Sox red pin stripes.
