    This is a good point, but it's sad state of affairs that Senzel would still be in the running for a starting role. Who is likely to start in CF? I see that Rotowire projects Mike Siani as the starter with his .700 OPS in 1,494 minor league at bats.

    You can think that about RF, but Krall has already said that Myers is going to play RF pretty much every day.

    Then the title needs to be changed.

    Here's the actual quote from David Bell

    Unlike Votto, who will be Cincinnatiís regular first baseman, Senzel was expected to have to compete in camp to retain his role as the center fielder. Bell was scheduled to have a call with Senzel this week.

    ďI want to hear from him exactly where he is,Ē Bell said. ďIím hearing good reports. Heís feeling good. Iím planning on him being ready for Opening Day. I still believe -- and Nick Senzel does as well -- that he can play all over the field and be an everyday player, but with where we are as a team, he still factors into center field a lot.

    ďIf something were to change there, I think Nick would be ready to incorporate more positions. Right now, weíre kind of going into the season where we left off. Heís still going to have to play center field, so that would be the focus right now.Ē

    It does explain my reaction as I was shocked that a statement like that would be made in January, as I couldn't believe it, even for the REDS at this point. We have a much better Manager than that. I'm actually glad he's here to steer this ship, kind of like Bligh in the dingy getting those who left with him back to civilization.

    Re: Nick Senzel named Redsí every day centerfielder

    I think Senzel should be DFA’d. Whatever potential may be left - the Reds aren’t the team to unlock it.

    That said, in a lost season, I actually don’t have a problem with throwing him out there and see if he can drum up some trade deadline value. We got a TON for Tyler Naquin a few months ago.

    I like a Fairchild/Friedl platoon as much as the next guy - but that’s not special. Siani still has some untapped upside, but he’s probably a 4th OF long-term and he needs some AAA at-bats anyway.

    I guess… my first choice is a DFA - but if I’m not getting that, then sure, let him play CF. Where are we gonna go?

    Oh yeah, thanks, the Friechild combo in CF. I'd rather see that than Senzel again. Well, not see exactly, because Bally is the devil and Phil is worse. I'll read about them on ESPN com and here. Thank you for all that so many of you share.

    1. Grounds worm-killer through hole into LF on Opening Day.
    2. Contemplating "stay aggressive" base-running strategy stressed pre-game, strays too far off 1B.
    3. Picked off, jamming hand diving back to bag.
    4. Four fingers dislocated.
    5. Out till mid-July.

    And get paid almost $2 million for that unfortunate routine. Pete Rose had more hits in 1973 than Senzel had in 2019, 20, 21, and 22 combined.

    I’ll bet Senzel hit more grounders to short though.

    And guy from earlier, lay off of the Fairchild/Friedl platoon. It’ll give you almost average defense and a 100 OPS+ on the aggregate. That’s literally universes ahead of what Senzel will give you.

    Siani is the most talented OF on the 40-man roster. Start Senzel for 6 weeks with Siani in AAA and the make the move to Siani. It’s whatever. Fraley and Myers are making the 26-man roster and I’d be pretty shocked if Solak misses the cut. Friedl has options, but I think he’ll be there. Siani is a lock for AAA unless he murders Spring Training. Why not Fairchild? Is he worse than Senzel?

    All of this is moot.

    Senzel never makes it through Spring Training (which, unfortunately, doesn't stop the REDS from Starting him and wasting a 25-man and 40-man roster spot).

    It's musical chairs anymore. Insert player here.

    In my lifetime (soon to be 67)), I never thought I'd see the day when I'd see such a terrible OF lineup of players whose name I can't remember ... and in most cases don't want to. Sad.

    Maybe it's to my benefit that I am unable to watch Reds games on TV lol

    All of this agnst over someone, who if named starter, won't last two games before he is injured and will no longer be the starter.
