I don't mind the uniforms at all, but I still don't care for the cursive "Twins". The way the W connects to the I, just doesn't look right...and for me, it doesn't even look like it says "Twins". It looks like it says "Tum" with an NS at the end. Am I the only person that sees that? I guess I have no choice but to get used to it.

I like the new script, other than the fact I just bought a Twins pennant for my family room on my 1st trip to Target Field in August that suddenly feels dated. (Sigh). The script looks perfect to me and I don't see what others do.

The white home uniforms are EXCELLENT. They are reminiscent of the old school whites worn until the mid 80's but much better and updated.

I don't mind the blue top. It's fine. But it's missing something. And I'm not sure what. Are the sleeves that bare? Or do we yet get to see some patches? And does the whole jersey look better with the back on display, which we can't see? Something like a Mini and Paul patch and a white outline of the number on the back of the jersey might "complete" the look.

Just my opinion...I'm actually old enough to have used, and can use, cursive handwriting. When I write "Twins" in cursive, I connect the W and the I at the bottom of each letter, not in the middle of each letter. For me, to connect them in the middle like that looks very strange. It just doesn't look right. 

Agree, the convection between the “w” and the “i” is awkward. Also, the “T” is the only letter not connected. The “T” seems disconnected from the rest.

I've been really excited about this reveal, and feel very disappointed by these projected looks. A few thoughts:

Instead of creating a more modern look to appeal to the younger crowd, it looks like they're trying to appeal to the "sailor man" crowd.

The script genuinely looks like it says "Turns," with a dot over the "r." This is really only one inventive photoshopping away from it saying "Turds," with a dot over the "r."

There's nothing more modern about this look in my eyes. In fact, they look like fake throwbacks, which is the worst type of throwbacks. I had a number of ideas that I believe would have been much more innovative, unique and interesting than these. I have been a defender of the Kasota Gold as well as the home navies (which I loved). Hoping that we see something more exciting on Friday.

Why are people so hung up on this? I’m asking honestly. Capital Ts are often disconnected from cursive script.

Hi Brock. I’m not hung up. I just think it looks like it’s separate from the rest. But I’m not unhappy about it or losing sleep. It doesn’t look bad at all.

No problem with the T being separate...that's how it should be. I just can't get the way the W and the I are connected. It might be technically the correct way to do it, but it looks wrong to my old eyes. Oh well.

Didn't all teams used to have, a home and an away uniform and that was it?

If the baby blue goes away I will be happier ( speaking of uniforms, the Vikings should go back to what Bud Grant allowed , period.)

Hung up is the wrong phrase. I've just seen a lot of people mention that issue and I don't really get it.

I thought the same thing, the typeface looks nice but that line from the w is really awkward.

I've noticed the Twins have been leaning harder on the Senator years lately. I guess being one of the original eight is important to them, though I personally couldn't care less.

I heard a rumor a few years ago (cant remember from where/whom), but they started to lean into it more over the past few years (championship flags in RF at Target Field, etc) in order to get ready for the 100 year celebration of the 1924 WS title.

Yes, the unis are nice. I'm sure I'm probably the only one that thinks this...but that last leaked pic looks to me, that it says "TWIMS". That's what I see. I'm absolutely 100% sure when I was a kid in the early 60's, we didn't learn to connect cursive letters at, or near the top of the letter like that. We connected them at the bottom of the letter. That's the way I still do it, when I write in cursive. No doubt cursive is a dying, or dead way to write.

I saw Twims too, but decided I must be trying too hard and didn't post to say so.  Glad you spoke up.
