Walt made a strong statement earlier that he thought the rotation was fine and he liked the #5 candidates. He said there was no need to spend limited resources on starting pitching. It was awhile ago, so I don't have the link, but that was almost exactly what he said.
You can agree or disagree with that, but he made it clear that the Reds were not going to spend money on a starting pitcher.
