Looks like the alien Mr. Red has been replaced with Mr. Redlegs. A vast improvement, even if he does perpetually surpised.

They said at the game that they form the only 3 mascot team in baseball. I say out with the alien Mr. Red and in with the new Mr. Redlegs.

If they're going to boot one of the mascots, here's to it being Gapper. I can't stand that creepy looking dude.

Mr. Redlegs is the balls. I never liked Mr. Red and couldn't figure out why. Now I know it's because he looks like an alien. I had never thought of that.

I don't know. Kids dig the fuzzy one. Looks like Elmo with ear hair.

I suppose. My kids love Elmo, hate Gapper. Can't explain it. My oldest (he's 3) is for some reason a big fan of Mr Red, or as he calls him "Baseball Head Guy."

Hate Gapper. I hope Mr Redlegs takes that giant bat to Gappers head some day.

I mean if we are going to steal someone elses mascot, cant it at least be a cool mascot, like the Western Kentucky Hilltopper? Gapper is the worst thing in history.

Couldn't they bring back Rosie Red also...although maybe make her look a bit more like Angelina Jolie.

It is all part of the power of tradition! Mr. Redlegs looks very much like Mr. Red or Mr. Redlegs or whatever they called him back then looked like in the late '50's and early 60's when I was a kid. I noticed yesterday that the logo on the backstop looked even more like the former rendition than the live mascot does.

I think what happend was that when the late 60's and early 70's came around, the powers to be thought our hero looked too much like a hippie or counter culture type (they do teach you young guys about such things I hope) so (to continue the theme) he had to go underground for a few years. Then when he resurfaced he had cleaned up his act and turned into the respectable, dull, middle class Mr. Red.

I like the running man Mr. Red a whole lot better than Mr. Redlegs. WOW. Out of all the things that they have changed, Mr. Redlegs could be the worst.

He looks a little wired, but I like it. The old Mr. Red was pitiful.

That's the first time I've seen the new Mr. Red.
The dude looks like he just pulled that bat out from where the sun don't shine.

So, let's bring in Rosie Red (looking like Angelina Jolie or not) and have a real live Mr Reds Race. Gapper can play the part of Randall Simon and take out someone different every day.

Or, even better, a lucky fan can play Randall Simon and take out Gapper every day.

I like "Old Red." Always liked the running man logo, but the mascot always looked second rate.

He needs to be charging more than that. It could be a huge new revenue stream for the team. That's something the Yanks and the Sox don't have

Indeed! Keep Mr. Red and Mr. Redlegs, bring in Rosie Red... and ditch the stupid muppet...

Opening Day the Reds literally were bragging about having "the only trio of mascots in major league baseball!" You would think with three shoots at it one of the would stink as bad as all three of these "mascots" do.

My buddy at the game Monday declared that we have officially passed the Expos for the title of worst mascots ever. All of ours, especially Gapper, are worse than Yupi or whatever his name was.

I propose we dress Gapper in the opposing team's uniform (or Eric Milton's) and let the kids play "whack a Cub" during the game.

I propose that Mr Red wears Miltons (Or stick Milton IN the Mr. Reds outfit) jersey while on the field. He can be easily hit to Shea Staduim even off the bat of someone such as Clint Barmes. There he can find his twin, the Mets mascot, and go to a farm full of other alien mascots....Somewhere far, far away from Cincinnati, never to be seen again.

Maybe they could rename the cheerleaders the Rosie Reds?

He could beat the crap out of that baby bear with a SPOON!

"Why a spoon?" You might ask.

It's dull.
