The Toronto Blue Jays just unveiled their new logo and uniforms.  And they look pretty familiar:

I like ’em, mostly because I always liked the old ones.  It’s a clean look. The split font on the team name and the numbers is unique. Sure, some people may say it’s too 70s, but the aggressive-looking bird and all of the stuff they’ve been using for the past several years is no less a relic of its time.  With some time away and some perspective, the old look is pretty darn nice in my view.

Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports that the Angels have hired former Tigers manager Brad Ausmus as a special assistant to GM Billy Eppler.

Ausmus, 48, managed the Tigers for four seasons, accruing a 314-332 (.486) record. The Tigers fired him after the 2017 season and hired former Twins manager Ron Gardenhire in his place.

Ausmus will assist with scouting and evaluations of players in the Angels’ system, amateurs, and players in other organizations.
