That Marlins logo everyone hated: it’s legit

From Jane Winston, here’s a pic of the seats being installed in the new Marlins ballpark.  Which confirms that the logo that everyone was tweeting about a couple of weeks ago is the real deal:

It looks better in white than in the rainbow colors. Give it some time — and see it featured on a winning team’s uniforms — and I bet it grows on people more than our initial reactions suggest.

Mets claim Sam Coonrod off waivers from Phillies

NEW YORK — The active New York Mets added another newcomer to their bullpen mix when they claimed reliever Sam Coonrod off waivers from the NL East rival Philadelphia Phillies.

Coonrod had a 7.82 ERA in 12 appearances covering 12 2/3 innings last year for the National League champions. The right-hander is 7-5 with a 5.27 ERA and five saves in 105 games over four major league seasons with San Francisco and Philadelphia. He has struck out 95 and walked 44 in 97 1/3 innings.

The 30-year-old Coonrod was designated for assignment by the Phillies last week when they signed free agent infielder Josh Harrison.

To make room on the 40-man roster, outfielder Khalil Lee was designated for assignment by the Mets.
