Mac’s Cincinnati Reds Throwback Uniform Series: 1936 Edition [Palm Beach Alternate]

Throughout the 2019 season, the Cincinnati Reds will be wearing a series of throwback uniforms to commemorate their 150th Anniversary and being the birthplace of professional baseball. Each weekend during a home series, the Reds will wear the uniforms from a different era to put their rich baseball history on display. Along with the Reds’ celebration, I will be reviewing and providing thoughts on each uniform throughout the season.

reds 1936

I’m not gonna lie. The 1936 Palm Beach Alternates are putting my mind in an absolute pretzel. As a uniform purist, I want to vomit. But as someone who loves quirky things and weird moments in history, I love these. Even if they might look like a jersey a fastpitch softball team would wear.

Call me crazy but I don’t think the red pants are gonna be as forgiving to Anthony DeSclafani on the mound today.. Continue reading

Don’t Let Today’s Loss Distract You From The Fact That Joey Votto is Hitting .500 vs. the Cubs

Today’s loss sucked. Everyone’s saying it. The Reds got a great 7-inning performance out of Luis Castillo where he only allowed one run on three hits and put the home team in a great position to win the second in a three game series in front of a sellout crowd. I don’t know why so many Reds fans were wearing blue, but it was a sellout nonetheless despite the brutal heat. Continue reading

Wake Up With The Best Rickyisms From Trailer Park Boys

If you’ve never watched Trailer Park Boys, you’re missing out. It’s pretty much The Office only it’s about deviants in a Canadian trailer park instead of 9-5ers at a paper company. One of the main characters, Ricky, is well known for getting popular sayings or colloquialisms wrong. Some of my most used phrases come from Ricky.

“Getting two birds stoned at once”

“Worst case Ontario”

“I fucking atodaso”

Maybe someday if you’re nice, I’ll post a picture of my Ricky costume from Halloween a few years ago. But until then, you can “make like a tree and fuck off.”

Anti-Shift Crowd Rejoices: Matt Carpenter Bunted for a Double

This is actually pretty hilarious. I’m kinda in a grey area when it comes to the shift. I don’t hate it, but I also think it’s getting out of control in some aspects. Plays like this make me wish the Reds had the nuts or wherewithal to do something like this. We’ve all seen them try to lay down bunts, and it’s not pretty. To ask them to do this would be like asking me to go five minutes without looking at my phone. It’s not gonna happen so quit asking. Continue reading
