Right. To me it's the very first question suggested by an argument that points to payroll.
Or to put it another way, if payroll disparity can be overcome as has been shown by by a growing number of teams year after year, why can't the Reds overcome it? In fact, why shouldn't the Reds be expected to overcome it?
