I know I disagree with Bill, but I wanted to say a few words about the new uniforms unveiled at Redsfest this weekend:

Awesome. Simply awesome.

They’re simple, and classy, and they hearken back to Reds teams of the past. The classic, all-red cap is back, and the black is gone. Best of all, those terrible sleeveless jerseys are in the garbage. Those things were just ugly, and they never grew on me.

The new design, as Bob Castellini said, is meant to last. It’s a design, like the Yankees’ and Cardinals’ uniforms, that isn’t going to go out of style in a couple of years. Heck, even the alternate jersey is great, and I expect that I will be purchasing one of those soon.

I’m more enthusiastic about the new uniforms than I’ve been about anything the Reds have done in quite some time.

So, what do you think?

Some pictures of the new unis here and below the fold.
