    Don't believe for one second that we don't need Senzel in the lineup right now.

    For us to win during the playoffs, we will need everything that he brings to this team. The sooner we get him plate appearances and innings in Center Field, the more quickly he's going to be able to do for the REDS what he does best....get on base, extend a pitcher's pitch-count, let other players see a plethora of pitches from the one on the mound, set the bar for playing Defense, doing whatever it takes to win. Senzel is a competitor and nobody hates the injuries more than him. He needs to be out there and I'm glad he's back.

    Having your best players playing does tend to help the cause.

    Bock Senzel is a must start.

    I don't think anyone disagrees with any of that impassioned plea.

    Senzel looked over-matched last night at the plate. Wish they had sent him down to Prasco to work on his timing for a few days. This would have been commonplace in any other season.

    BTW, what was his actual injury this time? Never found out.

    Must win game, Reds behind, ducks on the pond, tough right hand pitcher on the mound...
    Right now do you feel better with Goodwin or Senzel at the plate?

    I want Senzel over Goodwin next year and the year after, etc. But right now today Senzel just doesnít look ready. This weekend against the Sox where we have to generate offense, Iím a little more comfortable with Goodwin against right handers.

    Reds are going to need Senzel down the stretch, and yes his timing is off and he is rusty. I'd still play him. He needs the AB. I think to a large extent Winker suffers from time off although he cooled off before sitting due to back ailment. LOVE to see both start to hit. This offense can do some damage if it can only get going.

    You must have missed a game thread or two. I posted this in response to opinions in it wondering why he was even playing.

    There is not really anybody behind him doing anything better to force their way into the lineup.

    Maybe Goodwin, but he is bad in CF. Even so, he will probably get his playing time when the matchups are right.

    I probably just play Senzel so that he gets back to playing speed. He was hitting well before he went on the DL, and it wasn't really an injury he has to play with.

    The only basis to play Senzel and Winker is their ability to contribute right now, this minute.

    Whether they “need ABs” or can contribute down a future stretch is besides the point.

    It’s a big problem to use slumping players at this stage unless there’s some reason to believe they are ready to contribute now. Same issue with DeSclafani, either he’s ready to pitch well or he’s not.

    Up to the coaching staff to decide, but this isn’t the time to work on performance issues.

    He was at Prasco from September 1st until the day he joined the roster on Monday.
