They couldn't go farther because of the lack of consistent pitching.
It's just dumb to trade away a reliable arm like arroyo just so you can free up some cash. Besides, a rotation of Chapman AND Arroyo is much more potent than a rotation of Chapman and Leake.
I am greedy. who will the baseball world remember first? who won the NL Central in 2010 and 2012?? or who won the World Series those seasons?? Enough said.. Its been 22 years since the Reds been to a World Series.. The FO keeps saying the team is on the right track.. a 3 game loss at home hurt.. they have to take the next step and get a couple hitters to go along with our pitching.. Bailey pitched a 1 hitter and gave up 1 run and our offense went to sleep at home.. Got to fix it.. the teams that win in the post season score at least 1 more run than the other team.. cant expect our pitching staff to take the mound hoping to pitch a shut out every time..
