Greetings folks!

The Bobblehead with No Name is still being held in an undisclosed area by the Reds scoreboard department.  He will not be released until he’s finally given a name. 

My sources tell me that he’s in good health, getting plenty of food and water and getting to play around with the scoreboard controls.  Shoot, with all of that, he might not WANT a name!  Too bad, he’s getting one anyway and here are the final choices…

Red Head
Bobblehead Red
Little Red Ramsey
Mr. BobbleRed

I now have until tomorrow to decide which name fits the best.  I’ll welcome any last minute politciking…


Warm up the busses!  The Reds Caravan rolls out of Great American Ball Park tomorrow morning at 9 EST.  Hopefully you’ve planned to come out and see us at some point during the 4-day tour.  Here’s a list of where you can see your favorite tour group (the North Tour, I hope!)

For more Reds caravan information visit  And don’t forget, if you come out to a Reds Caravan event, bring your signs showing your support for your favorite caravan leg of the tour (North, South, West). 

You’ll also be able to keep up on all of the caravan action right here on Better Off Red.  I’ll be posting from the road while my good friend Jarrod Rollins occasionally will take over the blog to post reports from the South and West tours.  Better Off Red will be your Reds Caravan Headquarters!


If you checked out the blog yesterday, you saw Tom Browning and Lee May join up with members of the Reds front office to assist with the Haiti relief efforts.  Well, Bronson Arroyo is now lending a hand, too.  Check out this story by Mark Sheldon detailing how Bronson is helping out…


John Fay is reporting the Reds have some interest in shortstop Orlando Cabrera. What do you guys think?


Anybody out there pick up the new Spoon album?  If so, I’d love to hear what you think.  Personally, I like it and am relieved that it’s better than their previous effort.


That’s all I got for now.  It’s caravan eve and I have some packing to do! 

I can’t wait to see everyone Marietta/Parkersburg, Athens, Lima and Columbus!  Don’t let me down! 

Don’t forget to cast your vote for the bobblehead name finalists!

Be safe, have fun and pursue happiness!

And do me a favor, if you know anyone out there who needs a pick-me-up, do something nice for him/her this week.  Ya never know, you’ll probably cheer ’em up!

Go Reds




The best name is obviously Casey…haha. But I don’t think this guy should share the name with anyone who already has his own bobblehead (that includes Nuxy). I really like Crosley. Nice ode to the old park, and it just “fits.”

Agreed !!

I’ll vote for Casey, unless you’ll take a write-in vote for Jamie II.

And we don’t need Orlando Cabrera, I’m backing Paul Janish all the way!

I vote for little red ramsey

I don’t think we should get Cabrera mainly because he wouldn’t be here more than 1 year and we would be in the same boat next year. I say let Janish, Frazier, and Valaika show us who deserves the job, if it’s none of them; then next year we will have more money to get someone who is a longer term solution.

I hope it is not too late to leave a name for the bobblehead.
We think he should be named

Bo Red

It stands for Better Off Red.

Plus he looks like a Bo.

We missed seeing him in the pictures during the caravan. Please bring him back. He is missed.
