Fun Cards: 2019 Reds, 1987 Topps football style: Nick Senzel “Super Rookie”


Man, this has been a rough season so far. So much potential, such high expectations, such frustrating results. Friday’s game was an absolute disaster, losing 12-11 in extra innings after taking an early 8-run lead. It was the debut of phenom Nick Senzel, who is under a great deal of pressure to get the offense back on track. He walked twice, scored a run, and got an infield hit. Not the worst debut in history, but it would have been nice if the team had won the game.

They did hold on Saturday night in a 9-2 nailbiter, and Senzel launched his first home run of his career, a 379-foot solo shot off Dereck Rodriguez. It was his only hit of the night. But hey, it was a hit…and the team won!

The Reds are playing .500 ball with Senzel in the lineup. They have scored 20 runs since his call-up. I would say that’s a good start.
