      Not according to the player values of this site. Reds need a SS and Lopez has provided more value than Senzel so far in their careers.

    Reds want a real SS, not Lopez who is a stretch playing the position. He is a nice utility infielder.

    If Lopez has provided more value than Senzel, why would you give him up? You are trying to buy low.

    This is an UGLY deal for the Reds, the player values are irrelevant. Just because you match up the player values does not mean it is a good deal for both teams.

    Dumping an ineffective Holland and no bat (19bb/92k) Taylor on the Reds and a utility infielder for Senzel and AA is UGLY.

      Reds need a cheap CF option for their run if they wanna actually try for once. Senzel is more of an outfielder and KC has plenty of MI options with Mondesi, Witt Jr, Loftin, Merrifield, etc. Unless you think the cheap Reds will deal for a premium SS this cost-controlled cheap option fits their MO

        LOL! Your “cost-controlled cheap option fit their MO” comment is dripping with condescension.

        Who is really the “cheap” team? The Reds 2021 payroll is 25% greater than the Royals? Why do the Reds have more $10MM+ players than the Royals? Why do the Royals not even have a $20MM player?

        Correction, Senzel is more of a 3B/2B. His athleticism has allowed him to play CF.

        The Reds are not going to sell low on Senzel, especially for a utility infielder.

    Reds don’t even know what to do with Senzel. As much as they have jacked him around i figured the org has lost some faith.
