    Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.

    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.

    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
