There have been a lot of words spoken and written about the desire of Reds fans to have Nick Senzel, the organization's top prospect, finally join the team. He's not going to have to wait long to play. He's in the starting lineup in center field -- where most of Redleg Nation hopes he remains on a regular basis for the foreseeable future.

It's a great day for Redleg Nation Radio! Join Jason Linden and Chad Dotson as they discuss Luis Castillo, Nick Senzel, and more.
Shortstop Jose Iglesias came through with a late home run to back up a solid pitching performance and give the Cincinnati Reds a win over the New York Mets.
Say it with me: It's early and the Cincinnati Reds are fine.
The Reds got off to a great start in Queens when they scored four runs in the second inning. However, starting pitcher Tanner Roark was unable to hold that lead as walks burned him tonight. Jesse Winker hit a 415 foot blast in the top of the ninth off Mets closer Edwin Diaz to give the Reds a 5-4 lead. Raisel Iglesias finished off the Mets with two scoreless innings, including striking out the final four hitters.
