    I don't care, with the caveat that it's a small patch (2"x2") on either uniform sleeve and no more. But I'm sure I'm in the minority.

    You're right. I doubt they go all nascar or international hockey on MLB uniforms in our lifetime. If Subway wants a patch on the Reds right hand sleeve... cool. I might eat an extra $5 footlong per year.

    This.

    I understand where they're coming from, trying to be more like popular international sports, but this is as tacky as having a soccer team called the Red Bulls. Ugh.

    I hope the Reds get a cool advertiser like Chico's Bail Bonds.

    I dispise the NBA and think the entire league is joke so I couldn't care less what they do. But...I really don't want to see it happen to MLB.

    I don't like it. Could you imagine an advertisement on a Yankee uniform? or any classic MLB uniform for that matter. Keep the advertisements on the outfield walls and scoreboards.

    Eh, doesn't really matter to me. It's a different world and revenue streams are changing. As long as it's not too obtrusive.

    Patches for everything from All-Star Games to Ray Kroc have been around for almost 100 years. Patches hawking burgers and beer could be fun.

    They already have ads on the uniforms. There's a Majestic logo on the left sleeve of the shirt. The hats have a logo on the back of the cap. I see Nike on a lot of the collars of the undershirts. Of course the helmets, shoes, gloves (both fielding and batting) and bats have logos on them.

    If its small and on the sleeve or something, then eh whatever. But if it gets out of hand and starts saying something like American insurance's reds or something. That'd piss me off. I don't want teams selling their name out on the jerseys. The nba maybe NEEDS this, as most teams are in the red. MLB teams spend what they want. So if youre in the red, that's on you!

    And that is by the company that makes the particular item. Personally, I don't want to see any more than that.
