    Agreed, but at least those are actually red. Nothing dumber than seeing "Reds" written across a green jersey. At least write "Cincinnati" instead.

    The more likely answer as to why the green uniforms is fan sales. I don't like them either, but I remember them wearing them way back once per year on St. Patty's day.

    It's Hispanic Heritage Month so I at least get that. Plus there is no shortage of hispanic players. The Irish thing though is just designating a random day as "Irish Heritage Day" in order to wear the green uniforms.
    I dont care, Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. Hes in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.

    I would much much much prefer them wear throwbacks than the green, camo, and Rojos jerseys. And I agree with Big Klu, Cincinnati is known for its German heritage. Why not German instead of Irish? Other than they already have them, which would be a cheap explanation.

    Only a walk for Suarez for offense for the Reds through the first three.

    Three scoreless frames for Bob since the run in the first inning.

    Joey delivered the Reds first hit but got greedy and was thrown out at 2nd.

    Still 1-0 BoSox after 4.

    BobSteve's changeup is really looking like a ++ pitch, totally changing the swings against him. Cruising through 5.

    Nah it's on him. Errors and walks haunt. Then a HR doesn't help.

    4-0 Red Sox.

    Nice to see Bob work out of a bad inning.

    I don't mind the green "Reds" jerseys for St. Patty's Day; it's sort of ironic. I remember when I was 10 I saw a picture of Ken Griffey in the St. Patrick's Day uniform during Spring Training (it was a green-trimmed version of the traditional home white BRM uniform), and I thought it was neat that the uniform still said "Reds" but everything was green, including the caps, helmets, undershirts, and stirrups.

    One last comment about the uniforms, and then I'll shut up (this comment is a positive one):

    I notice that the numbers do not have black trim around them, but are a plain white number on the green background. I think this is an improvement.
