He is battling issues of Vertigo. The same thing that sidelined him last year. I also think the Reds are trying to wait out the service time issue so they can retain him a extra year. Hope he can get back soon and this doesn't become a ongoing problem for him. He is a very good player.

I hope he gets over it. Vertigo issues ended Nick Esasky's career after he had started fulfilling his promise.

Esasky had a career average of 250. Best thing he did was be traded for Todd Benzinger.

Reds non-tender Billy Hamilton.

I have no problem with this. I love Billy patrolling center field and love him on the basepaths, but overall he just doesnt cut it as a major league hitter. Not for the money he was going to command. I think I heard 9.8 million was the figure if we kept him. There's just no way. Now if you can still sign him as a free agent in the 4 million range I'd bring him back as an option with no three clear cut bonafide everyday outfielders ahead of him.

Actually Dave it was Around 5.9 mil. I have no issue as well. Billy was never going to hit or get on base enough to fully utilize his major weapon speed. My belief is this will enable them to play Senzel in CF for a year before moving him to 2B when Scooter leaves after this year. They worked him out there a bit after the season before he had to shut it down and the feeling was he good to the job. Don't see them resigning Scooter long term because he is on the wrong side of 30 and he is a really bad fielder. Trammel or Siri will be in CF in 2020 with Senzel moving back to infield.

Ok, I thought 9.8 seemed high. I heard that on 700 wlw kind of in passing so I must've heard wrong. Everything you said about him is spot on. He just doesnt get on base enough to warrant a spot. And roughly 30 steals last year just doesnt cut it. He wasnt even running when he got on base and honestly with one of the smallest parks in MLB you can get away with not having super speed in the outfield.

I hope Senzel can stay healthy, I just have a suspicion he'll be one of those oft-injured, cant live up to potential guys. I'd trade him for the right deal

Gosh I hope not. He is very athletic. He is Really a good all around player. Trading him now coming off his injuries I think may be selling low as well. Got to give him a shot to see what he can do. Three of our better oungsters are all coming off injuries. Greene,Senzel and Winker. Need them healthy and producing.
