Updated: Ranking the Reds On-field 4th of July Hats

If you’re anything like me, you’re either anticipating a bald spot, or already covering one up with a sweet New Era cap featuring your favorite team.  Since 2011, MLB has been coming out with special Stars and Stripes editions of hats for all teams to wear on the 4th of July.  Here are my personal rankings of the hats.  Shout me out on twitter with your favorite one: @NatiBoyDB.

First to worst:

2011

2011: pictured above is the best hat that they’ve come out with so far.  It incorporates the flag, and has a great mix of all of the colors into the “C” logo.  It helps that the Reds main color is featured prominently on the hats, because I always think the Stars and Stripes hats for teams with no red or blue in their team colors looks weird (the Orioles, for example). I really think they peaked early with this one; it was the first edition of the Stars and Stripes hats, and they knocked it out of the park, only to go downhill from there.

I still wear this hat; I wore it last night, actually.  Love it.

Mike Brown is Cheap and Riverfront Radio Secedes

We start off this week’s episode of Riverfront Radio talking about the Reds recent struggles as they just can’t seem to dig out of the hole they put themselves in at the beginning of the season.  We also voice our frustrations over the recent news that Bengals will not be wearing throwbacks during the NFL’s upcoming 100th anniversary season.  After that, things start to get off the rails quickly and end with us making plans to create our own country.

Jeff Has Several Strokes

Riverfront Radio is back with another great episode. On today’s podcast we talk about the recent Reds struggles, and our love/hate of their throwback uniforms. We also get into whether Geno Suarez getting plunked by a Pirates pitcher was on purpose or not. We’re also going to have to monitor Jeff’s health during the upcoming week; he’s got some issues. Enjoy the show.

Reds, Soft Pretzels and Lemonade Beer

We’re all over the place on our special Memorial Day episode of Riverfront Radio.  The Reds still seem to be just on the verge of turning things around after going 3-2 over the past week and a big opportunity to make up some ground ahead of them on the 7-game home stand.  We also call into question Jeff’s beer choice and things quickly get off the rails, in true Milliron Sports fashion.

The Reds and Male Pattern Baldness

The Reds are 1-8, and are officially depressing us. We discuss their poor start, the fight in Pittsburgh, and what it will take to turn this club around. Dietrich’s home-runs got us excited for the bats to turn it around for the ballclub, since the pitching has been decent so far. Enjoy the episode!

Who Is Todd Bell?

Now that we have a sufficient sample size to review, we provide all of our rational and irrational overreactions from the Reds’ 1-1 start.  Some of the new comers haven’t gotten off to the hottest of starts, but on the bright side, they have new souvenir cups at the stadium now.  We also give our thoughts on this year’s Final Four, which didn’t quite turn out exactly how we expected.  Also, but congrats to Mac for winning the first annual Riverfront Radio bracket pool.
