    But for a game, I prefer the usual red with white wishbone C.
    You don't sell as many extra hats if you stick with the wishbone C.

    Well certainly not with that attitude.

    Loved the Los Rojos jerseys so much I bought one. I hope they wear them more.

    Also loved the hats.

    Re: Los Rojos

    Yeah, has anyone explained the rationale for the "Los" in front of "Rojos"? I'm glad others have brought that up. I don't mind marketing to the growing Hispanic population. I don't mind "Rojos" and I actually thought the unis looked fairly sharp.

    But "Los" Rojos? I think what they did was just copy what the NBA does with "El Heat" and "Los Bulls" and all that stuff. Again, no need for the first word. The Miami Heat don't put "The Heat" on their regular uniforms. The Bulls don't put "The Bulls." (Although, they should look into using DaBulls, that would be awesome.) And the Reds don't use "The Reds." So, why the "Los" for the Spanish uniforms? I don't get it.

    The rest of it I actually get. But that small detail is very strange to me.

    Why are the Dodgers wearing the Angels' road Latino jerseys? It prominently says, "Los Angeles" on the front.

    "Reds" is a shortened version of "The Cincinnati Reds". In Spanish that translates "Los Rojos de Cincinnati".

    That's all I can think of. Probably as simple an explanation as doing it both ways and seeing the two word version looks better.

    I think its just because Los sounds more Hispanic.

    Which would be grammatically incorrect.
