you just wish the Marlins could have such an amazing great jersey option. 
They do. It's actually blue. The Cardinals powder blue looks like a white shirt that got stained by the other blue shirts in the laundry.

And our city would call it "Hobo Chic" and sell that blue tinged polyester shirt for $300 bucks....

oh, wait....

I like the Dbacks dark gray best out of all the road unis.  There's something about that darker gray that really catches my eye.

Looks like it just came out of the wash. I hate those.

I don't like those either. They feel like a concept that sounded good when pitched in a meeting and looked good on paper and that is decent for casual wear but that fails miserably in real life execution. They look even darker in sunlight. I saw them in a day game at Dodger Stadium and they looked like they were in all black and they blended in with the umpires who were wearing all black.  

Look at this, look how the player and the ump are almost identical...

Fair enough....

I seem to recall the Rays having a washed out light blue road uni in the past too, but can't seem to find it.  Not the alternate,  but a full faint light blue jersey.  Am I wrong?

No, not those.

I may be wrong, because I can't find them anywhere. 

I recall them looking like their current road unis, but with a hint of light blue rather than gray.  Nothing nearly as overwhelming as the pic above,  or the Cards blue.

I'm thinking more along the lines of the Giants ivory rather than white.

You're mistaken but I think I know why... I've watched a few Sunday day road games where the Rays gray uniforms seemed to have a blueish tint to them.
