213 Miles From Shea:
The Reds announced this weekend that they will have a new, red alternate jersey for the 2013 season that reads “Los Rojos” across the front:
I’ve gone on record on this site before, and I will continue to, in support of jerseys that do more than just slap “los” in front of the name but try to do something more. This jersey does that. The Reds don’t have any home uniforms that have the team name going across the front, and no uniforms that have a script across the front. Also, rather than doing the lame thing saying “Los Reds” they at least translated the name.
My only complaint was the inconsistent shadowing. I would prefer no shadow at all, but if there will be shadow, it needs to be on every word. The lack of shadow on the word “Los” looks like it is just a computer error as this website has a picture of the actual uniform, with consistent shadows.

With news (I believe it was CBS Sports who reported first) that Ryan Ludwick has been signed to a two year deal, the Reds now turn to other needs.
With Scott Rolen's future in doubt, and Miguel Cairo and Wilson Valdez unlikely to return, the Reds need to find a good utility infielder who can back up Todd Frazier at third...
Many around the baseball world thought Ryan Ludwick's better days were behind him after the 2011 season. And who could honestly blame them?
The former UNLV Runnin' Rebel was coming off back-to-back seasons in which saw his offensive production decline sharply. He was traded midseason twice during those years, once from the Cardinals to San Diego in 2010, and then again...
Redsfest presented the last good opportunity of 2012 for the media and fans to interact with members of the Reds. In fact, it may even be the last chance to interact with them at all until Spring Training rolls around.
Nonetheless, this weekend produced many interesting notes and quotes from the Reds. Here's a rundown on some of the best:

If the rumors are true, the Reds have traded Drew Stubbs and Didi Gregorius for who would now be former Cleveland Indians Shin-Soo Choo and Jason Donald.
From the Reds side
Losing Drew Stubbs at this point in time isn’t a big deal. While I fully believe he is better than he showed in 2012, he isn’t exactly someone you worry about losing. Gregorius is more of a concern at this...

With Johnathan Broxton re-signed, Ryan Ludwick extended and Jack Hannahan on radar, the Cincinnati Reds appear to be having a solid off season.
However, there is one glaring piece that needs to be addressed--albeit a vast amount a time to do so.
Cincinnati needs a leadoff hitter. And unlike finding a bat that can play field or...
Ryan Ludwick left the Reds to see if there was a better deal available on the free agent market. He found at least one, but turned it down to stay with Cincinnati.
The left fielder signed a two-year, $15 million deal on Monday that includes a mutual option for the 2015 season. He agreed to the contract over the weekend and came for the formal announcement.
The 34-year-old outfielder...
The 2012 season definitely brought more good than bad for the Redlegs. They were able to overcome an injury to MVP first basemen Joey Votto, which sidelined him for over two months, to win their second National League Central Division crown in three years. Because it's the middle of the December, and because there is not much to talk about regarding the Reds, here's some...
It’s easy to get lost looking at the Reds dominating bullpen over the past few years. It’s also easy to think about the combination of Joey Votto, Jay Bruce, and Brandon Phillips at the plate. However, that would overlook the most consistent aspect of the Reds play over the past three seasons: their fielding. Joey Votto and Brandon Phillips have won multiple Gold Gloves, but...
Today wraps up the final position in the State of the Farm series for 2012. The Reds currently have six starting pitchers at the Major League level for five spots. In the minor leagues there is also a good amount of depth.
Coming into the season the Reds didn’t have a premiere pitching prospect to their name, but rather several quality pitching prospects. That all changed in 2012...

The Reds came into the offseason with a to-do list as they prepare to defend their NL Central crown in 2013. In their first move they retained Jonathan Broxton to move into a closer role and free Aroldis Chapman to move into the rotation. Stories Saturday confirmed that Ryan Ludwick will return to left field after heavy rumors that both sides were close to a two-year deal.
The Reds are on the verge of a blockbuster trade with the Cleveland Indians that would bring outfielder Shin-soo Choo and utility infielder Jason Donald to Cincinnati in exchange for CF Drew Stubbs and shortstop prospect Didi Gregorius.Choo will be a free agent after the 2013 season and will make roughly $7.5 million via arbitration this coming season. So, it's a one-year rental...
The Redlegs finally have the leadoff man they had been searching for.
According to multiple sources, Cincinnati is close to acquiring outfielder Shin-Soo Choo from the Cleveland Indians in a three-team deal that will send outfielder Drew Stubbs and shortstop Didi Gregorius packing elsewhere. Stubbs will be heading upstate to the Indians in the deal while Gregorius appears...
The Reds and Indians are discussing a trade that would send outfielder Shin-Soo Choo and another piece to the Reds for Drew Stubbs and shortstop Didi Gregorius , Danny Knobler of CBS Sports reports.
The Reds plan to use Choo in center field and as their leadoff man, but he has little experience in center field as he has logged only 10 games there.
Choo who is a free-agent after the...
