What has been the Reds' biggest problem since moving into GAB? Pitching. And if you can improve your rotation by getting one or two starters, why wouldn't you do it?
The one thing the Reds have no shortage of is hitters. Even mediocre hitters improve when they play at GAB.
If you think small, you'll go nowhere in life.
