    Hey, at least we aren't changing the team name for the entire year so we don't sound like Commie Pinko sympathizers.
    Can't win with 'em

    "Rojos" reads fine in Spanish. The "Los" is used pretty much as the "The" is in English.

    When saying something about the team, you will use "Los", as in "Los Rojos firmaron un contrato con..." (The Reds signed a contract with...). When quoting a score, it will be omitted. "Rojos 12, Cachorros 0".

    I like "Rojos" better.

    1908 - The Cincinnati Reds baseball team plays in a 4-game tournament in Cuba, and becomes the first major league team to travel to the island. Cuban José Méndez pitches 3 consecutive shutouts against the Reds.

    1911 The Cincinnati Reds buy Rafael Almeida and Armando Marsans, first Cubans since Esteban Bellan who played in the 1870's

    I like it.

    If nothing else, perhaps a couple young latinos love the uniform and, as a result, sign free agent contracts with the Reds instead of Los Dodgers or Los Gigantes.

    Is this a serious response? You are aware that there are parts of the United States where Spanish is the first language of many people who ancestors have been here for centuries before my own German and/or Irish ancestors arrived on these shores?

    It's a cool looking jersey. I imagine it will be a popular item even with us folks who speak Merkan. Hopefully this inspires Les Rouges and Die Roten jerseys too.

    While the U.S. Census shows a 10 percent population drop in the city from both black and white households, the Hispanic community has doubled from 4,301 in 2000 to 8,504 in 2010.

    Yes, I realize those numbers are for the city of Cincinnati alone.

    When you include the entire 15 county Greater Cincinnati area, it's 2.6% per the numbers at the Hispanic Chamber Cincinnati, USA. And rising.

    So, not really a hell of a lot more, and I live and work all over town- west, east and north- but not NKY, and have not noticed any large increase.

    I'm just wondering why the Reds chose to do this. They've had great Latino players for years, and have always been the Reds.

    There's no question the Hispanic population in the US is booming; maybe it's in response to that.

    Jersey sales I suppose, it's a market grab move for sure... even if it upsets a few Bubba's

    Sheesh. I have to say I'm surprised at this sort of myopia on this board. English may be our "official" language, but the US is multicultural and multilingual. IMO it does no harm to the Reds brand to market it to another population of current or potential fans who want to both support the team and express their love for another language. For god's sake, it's a big tent!

    Don't say that in Texas. I agree with you, but if you don't read/speak Spanish down here you're at a big disadvantage.
