I am by no means a fashion expert, but you’ve got to think that the guy who was traded to Florida for Jorge Cantu is not the jersey you are breaking out to wear on opening day.

His Joe Valentine jersey was at the cleaners.

If the best option hanging in your closet is that of an obscure reliever who threw less than 46 innings with the team six years ago and was traded away due to off the field issues, then it should wait until a regular weeknight game, when only 18,000-20,000 people might see you wearing it.

To give some credit to Reds fans, I did not see anyone wearing this t-shirt. It was hanging up in the Reds gift shop.
