Jason Linden joined me again this week for another rousing episode of the Redleg Nation Radio podcast. We began by following up on last week’s glorious discussion about the possibility of Nick Senzel as the potential starting shortstop of the Cincinnati Reds. Quickly, however, we moved on to Joey Votto’s recent comments that something has to change soon with this rebuilding process. Winning starts now?

Finally, should we be panicking over manager Bryan Price’s first spring training lineup, featuring Billy Hamilton as the leadoff hitter? (Short answer: no.)

Music for this episode provided by Freekbass, a big Reds fan and a friend of Redleg Nation.

    Possible future infield/defense:

    3b – Suarez ++ defender
    SS – Senzel ? slightly – defender
    2B – Blandino, Herrera, Long at least avg defenders
    1B – Votto, avg to slightly + defender
    C – Barnhart – Gold Glove defense

    This is not only one of the best offensive infield’s in baseball, but all together they make a pretty good defensive infield.

    Agree on the Gennett/2b comments + he will be making about 6.5 – 8 million next year. The playing time at second base is going to be fun to watch, as long as Herrera gets plenty of opportunity and hopefully eventually see what Blandino can do at 2b.
