    Senzel not gonna start???

    Are we gonna have to face the fact that Senzel won't start for this team? It seems like everytime I hear a national pundit talk about the Reds it's an Aquino/Winker platoon in left. If Aquino has a decent spring, we may not see too much of Senzel.
    This is nuts!

    When you play this game twenty years, go to bat ten-thousand times, and get three-thousand hits, do you know what that means? You've gone zero for seven-thousand. --Pete

    He's injured currently, let nature take its course. Talent rises to its level

    I would have to believe if Senzel is healthy he will be a starter. Still looks like there almost has to be a trade this spring training. I for one think trading Senzel right now would be a mistake. You would be selling low.

    Agreed. I can't see Shogo getting more starts in CF than Senzel.

    Is Shogo a fourth outfielder? Or are they all fourth outfielders?

    No, they're all third outfielders. Which is much better.

    Even when he's healthy (which is almost never) he isn't that good. It is what it is.

    Barry Larkin hit 244 in his first full year in the bigs. I think the jury is still out on Senzel. He will be fine.

    He had an .815 OPS entering August then messed with his swing, then got hurt. The rumors of Senzel's demise are greatly exaggerated.

    I'm not suggesting a Nick Senzel "demise". I am suggesting he was never that good to begin with.

    Yikes. Remember this take

    .311/.389/.497 career line as a pro. But yeah, no good.

    The injury and durability issues are definitely legitimate concerns. The talent really can't be questioned though.
