IMO, the best way to do that is with the 3rd lefty for the pen, so I vote Cingrani. I don't see a position player available that is going to add much, may as well add the utility to the staff.
The Cards and Rangers starters were being pulled early all season long, because they weren't very good.
Reds with this roster have Lecure, and Leake who could go long. No need for an extra pitcher.
I voted for Cairo, because I can see him going all Kurt Bevacqua in the post season
