I also prefer the Dodgers version to the Los Angeles one.  Not big on two-word scripts with a tail.

Same here. I'd also want them to go a step further and bring back their road uniforms from 1977-98 w/the white outline on the script/names/numbers and the white-blue-white sleevet rim.

The Dodgers need to stay away from anything involving outlines.  Ideally they'd also rip the piping off of the "Los Angeles" road jersey but with the "LA" on the sleeve removing it from the rotation entirely wouldn't be the worst thing.  The look is classic and looks best with the simplicity of single color lettering and numbers.

 

If they were to do ANYTHING I wouldn't mind them having the spring training jerseys as an extra option (with the sleeve piping removed and the regular cap).  It's a clean look that fixes everything wrong with the triple-silver-outlined FOX abominations.

I wouldn’t mind the road jersey going full Brooklyn, with the head spoon and sleeve trim (and red front number):

But a no-trim “Los Angeles” jersey would be best.

Does a new manufacturer even have any affect on redesigns? If a team wants a change it'll change.

 

Sure it does.  Manufacturers can influence redesigns through their design teams and help convince owners that they're needed in the first place. 

 

It's a partnership, a dialogue, and although the manufacturers don't deserve all the ire for pointless changes neither are they blameless.

I'm thrilled!

I'm most looking forward to 1936 because of the red pants, 1961, 1969 (which would be their full time uniform if I had my druthers), 1990 (the best possible version of the pullover uniforms, fixed all the issues with the BRM unis, and was the uniform worn during the only championship in my lifetime), 1995 (I really never liked these unis, but they were the uniforms of my childhood and I'll enjoy the novelty of seeing them on the field one more time), and 1999 (my favorite Reds team ever).

All those throwbacks... this is great. I love that logo, too.

 

Although, are we still gonna pretend that the original team didn't fold?

The reasons why the original team folded, which was something to do with selling beer at the ballpark, were complete horse$hit. I get why they make that connection.

If we can pretend that the Montreal Alouettes of the CFL didnt fold in the 80s to be reborn by relocating Baltimore Stallions in 1996 then yes we can pretend the Reds didnt fold.

My father, who was from Cincinnati, always told us not to forget that Cincinnati is the South.

Fine.  But I don’t ever want to hear another complaint about the Cleveland Browns lineage.

It took me somewhere in the ballpark of 25 years to realize this. I mean, Ohio sits directly above Kentucky so I guess it should’ve been obvious, but I never made the connection between Southern Ohio and the South until recently.

I'm guessing the Reds will unveil a new alternate jersey as well. What about the Oakland Athletics 50th anniversary Kelly green alternate jersey? Is it coming back next season or was it a one year thing? I'm also hoping the Royals mothball their Friday night home alternates, but I doubt that will happen.

The leagues can tell us all they want but the Browns are in Baltimore, the Earthquakes are in Houston, the Hornets are in New Orleans, and the Bobcats are Hornets 2.0, and as much as fans in Winnipeg say, the Jets are in Arizona.

Cincinnati and St. Louis seem to be very similar in terms of being almost Southern and very German.
