The Reds are a good team supposedly. The bullpen depth took a hit when Madson and Masset went down. They need to fill the spot with a better reliever.
That's really the bottom line. I disagree with Dusty's decision there, but better bullpen depth would have prevented it.
Every team has at least one Simon in its pen. Most have a few of them. Not sure who the Reds could have gotten that was better, that wouldn't cost them a hole somewhere else.
