If the Reds have no shot at making the playoffs --which they don't IMO -- then as a fan I'm hoping for the best draft pick possible now. No way we would ever fall to the level of the Astros, but I wouldn't even care if we finished fifth behind the Cubs this year. Might as well get the best draft pick(s) possible if you're completely out of the playoff race.
