If they wouldn't have kept the same color scheme there might have been less people wearing Indians gear, but it allows a more gradual transition for those folks who have recently bought Indians gear to continue to wear it.

I'm interested to see what happens after ownership changes. Could definitely see a more drastic shift to a new color scheme and branding with the Guardians name. I would like a shift from white to sandstone personally, but doubt that happens.

Coming up from Cbus and going to game Sunday. Fair or foul, wearing an Indians shirt? Not because I care, just haven’t bought Guardians shit yet.
It's fine. I make a conscious effort to not wear anything with the old name, limiting myself to the jerseys that just said "Cleveland" and a few new Guardians t-shirts. But I can't imagine anyone is giving people shit for still wearing Indians gear. If anyone does, they're the asshole.

As long as you aren't obnoxiously yelling "THEY'LL ALWAYS BE THE INDIANS TO ME!" or "BRING BACK THE CHIEFFFF!!!!!" you're golden.

"Guardians alumni" Carlos Baerga Photoshoped the chief off his cap

Alumnus.

Nice to see them remove Wahoo from the cap.

Not sure how I feel about "Cleveland Guardians '90-96" I get it, but that wasn't the team he played for. I would have written something like "Played for Cleveland, '90-'96" and I'd handle any Washington football players in a similar manner.

I mean I would have designed him with a new cap on, not just git rid of the old logo lol
It's probably some intern who's either unpaid or barely scraping by who rightfully doesn't give a shit. "My boss told me to get rid of the Wahoo, and it looks stupid blank, but I'll do exactly what they told me."

That's my guess.

I could have done that in 5 seconds with a cheap editing program lol

You’ll be fine, plenty of people wearing Indians stuff, including me. Wore my old school red indians jersey. My wife wore Indians stuff as well, she doesn’t have any Guardians merchandise yet. No problems at all.

They don't need to be changing off red, white and blue you Commies. We get it: you want something new to bitch about, and as long as they keep the colors you cant bitch about that. The Guardians are going to continue to match the Stars and Stripes, just deal with it.

Also; no one cares about people still wearing Indians gear. You aren't going to get harassed for wearing it. Browns fans are running around in 'Bitch Give Me A Massage's shirts, no one is gonna care about your Hafner jersey.

Not me.... what I see is an increasing trade value
FWIW I was trying to troll with my post, and be funny in response to reactions towards Rosario's biggest defender. I end up with a whole bunch of thoughtful, informative, measured responses.

I must suck at trolling. :conf (11):

... If I remember the rumor mill correctly, and definitely buzz me if this is wrong/horseshit... Is they wanted to get Yandy to play/move more into the OF and he wasn't having it.
Not true. Yandy played nearly half the games at AAA in the OF, for at least 1yr, so why in the majors wouldn't he go to the OF?
