    50 worst logos in baseball history

    Found this from the Bleacher Report. Some of these are truly, truly bad. Some are entertaining. Some are complete WTF moments.

    All people who make sweepingly generalized, stupid, uninformed comments are idiots.

    Re: 50 worst logos in baseball history

    A few things in this BR gem stuck out to me.

    How could he fail to mention that the obviously touched Norwich Navigator is trying to use a baseball bat as a spy glass?

    How did he not immediately recognize the Braves logo as a feather. Still a bad logo, but seriously, you can't see that?

    Obviously he doesn't know what the nautical term "pilot" means; or even that "pilot" has a nautical meaning. They try to tell him with this logo, but he is too much of an idiot (I know, he works for BR) to take the clue.

    A fun concept, but can't anyone at BR write an article or column without demonstrating what an idiot they are?

    Haha, no. But that's what makes it entertaining (more or less).

    What could be more athletic than an animal that can't jump?

    Pretty sure it dates back to when Bill Veeck used an elephant in the team's marketing. Might have been the KC Athletics then.

    #6 the shark IS a hammerhead, as it turns out. Just gets lost in the perspective, as it turns out. Guy just didn't look hard enough to realize it was actually drawn correctly.

    There's some serious Tigers and Cubs hate in that piece.
