    Mr. Red/Old Red?????????

    After looking at the caption contest today, it got me thinking. What are the Reds going to do with Mr. Red?

    I don't know about you guys, but I sure hope management gives him a new uni and a bit of a makeover. You know what? They need to kick him to the curb and bring back "Old Red" since he now adorns the new uniforms and new logos. Is spring training Mr. Red's last hurrah?

    I'm sure they'll give him a different uniform to reflect the changes.

    And get rid of the alien eys. A mascot should look like he has a personality, at least. That thing just gives me the creeps.

    I hope he gets the look of "Old Red."

    Back in the 70's, we called him "Mr. Nerd."

    I still like him better than that "gapper" thing. I agree that they need to give him a little more character with some better detail.

    Yeah, but if you really looked like the guy in your avatar we'd probably be cool with that. Instead, you've changed, man.

    At least this Mr. Red seems to have filled out a little. Somebody around here has a photo of a scary-looking Mr. Red who's about 7 feet tall and weighs about 100 pounds.

    I always liked the older guy with the handle bar mustache.
