    Re: Los Rojos

    I've discussed uniforms many times with Randy over the years; he's a traditionalist, that's all, and I know he will not be a happy man until the Reds are wearing these gorgeous beauties again:

    Gorgeous is so right - my favorite as well.

    Re: Los Rojos

    BTW, I just sent a general email to the Reds marketing department:

    Karen Forgus, Reds' senior vice president of business operations, said "We saw the Brewers do this with Los Cervezeros,..." except that the Brewers only have Cervezeros on their jerseys. If it would be all possible it would be better to have only "Rojos" on the jerseys. The team is just "Reds" not "The Reds". I would assume that an major jersey order has already gone out and nothing will change - but maybe in the future just have "Rojos", and I'll buy one for sure!

    Thanks!

    I was just thinking the same thing.

    BTW-Cueto had one of these jerseys on during the award presentations on the main stage at Redsfest and I thought it looked pretty sharp. I don't know if I'll buy one or not at this point (I only own one jersey and it's an older one with no name on it) but I think they're pretty cool looking overall.

    I'll probably buy a t-shirt with Chapman or Cueto on the back. The 2 authentic jerseys I have (1 Reds-customized, 1 Dragons) cost me nearly $300 - and I don't have that kind of money right now. I would love it if you could get a t-shirt with Perez or Concepcion number and name on the back and "Rojos" on the front (but with the BRM font)... how cool would that be? Probably could go to Koch's to see if they could whip something up.

    I'll predict that it won't hit 200 because it'll be shut down pretty soon.

    Pretty weak if others allow that to happen because they can't restrain themselves

    You've completely missed the point. It's not about "liking" or "not liking" the jersey. It's about implying in some way that the jersey is "unnecessary." Not sure how many times I can restate that basic fact. I have no problem with you not liking the jersey's looks. I do have a problem with people who want to claim that English-only jerseys should be the rule just because of "tradition."

    Yes, I share your outrage.

    Thanks for the noteworthy contribution to the quality of the thread. If people bother to read what's actually being said here, I think they'll notice that there are some important elements of sports and the role they play in the world being discussed. That can, and should, be part of what we do at RedsZone, IMHO.

    Are you serious? Or does this need a sarcastic emoticon?

I'm not saying you have to agree with it, but neither do I have to agree with yours.
    I have no problem with your aesthetic taste. White, grey, red, whatever. You go with whatever floats your boat.

    But you still haven't really recognized my point about the word "unnecessary." The way you are using it, it means something that players need on the field. By that rationale, they probably don't need half of the stuff they wear. They probably need a ball and a bat and gloves to play, but kids have been playing baseball for decades in the street with far less in terms of attire.

    As Patrick, Kal and I have argued, you get into far more difficult waters when you start arguing that somehow having shirts that recognize the languages of other groups are "unnecessary." All I've read you say on that point so far is that there is no reason for other groups to have shirts that "speak" to them or their worlds. That's why this thread keeps going on and on and on.
