Isn’t it time to let the kids shine in Cincinnati? Jason Linden and I discuss the suggestion, made by Steve Mancuso in the digital pages of Redleg Nation this week, that the Reds should give rotation spots to the kids in the competition — Brandon Finnegan, Amir Garrett, Cody Reed, Robert Stephenson, Rookie Davis, and/or Sal Romano.
The answer? It’s complicated.
We also look at some potential surprise picks to make the Reds Opening Day roster and discuss all the spring training news surrounding the ol’ Redlegs. Plus: showering advice for Raisel Iglesias.
