Scooter Gennett is now hitting .340/.376/.558 and leads the Reds with 10 home runs. His wOBA is .399; his wRC+ is 154. We’re a third of the way into the season, and Scooter shows no signs of regressing.
Quite the contrary: Gennett has been worth 2.1 WAR already this season; he was worth 2.4 wins in 2017. So….
Should the Reds try to sign Scooter Gennett to a long-term (4+ years) contract?

You probably know my feelings on this topic — and we’ll be discussing this topic in-depth over the coming days — but I’m sure this is a question being asked inside the Reds front office. The club has a big decision to make.
What should they do?
