The Reds are moving their top prospect, Nick Senzel, to the outfield? Jason Linden and I explore the possibilities with that move. Then we checked in on Joey Votto, and tried to put his career in historical context.
After answering a listener question (send your questions in mp3 format to chaddotson AT redlegnation DOT com, and we’ll try to answer it on a future podcast), we muse over whether the Reds have lost an entire generation of fans by putting losing teams on the field for 17 of the last 22 seasons, and what that means for the Cincinnati community.

Great Pod as always. This season has been terrible but the lightness of the podcast helps distract from this terrible team.
Thanks, Ryan! We try to have fun with it. It’s not always easy.
Reds starting pitching is again the thing keeping the club down. That has been the story pretty much 25 out of the last 30 years or so.
That said, this club has played some some really wild and entertaining games this year. It is a bit like the Griffey/Dunn teams where they get into some total softball league slugfests.
