The Mets unveiled the new CitiField logo today, with much fanfare... and it's... well, pretty weak, frankly. Isn't this just the Citibank logo, with orange and blue squares? At an angle?
That $20 million/year Citibank is giving the Mets will pay for much of Johan Santana, and that's probably worth it. But this image, to me, says nothing about the crack of the bat, the buzz of the crowd, the elegance of a well-turned double play, or the majesty of a towering home run -- let alone Queens, or New York, or the character of the Mets. This says "refinance your mortgage".
