Patience. The offseason is still young. The only 2 notable free agents that have signed are Melky and Torii Hunter. Hunter signed for presumably more than the Reds have budgeted for LF and Melky has some serious red flags. Like it or not, I don't see the Reds acquiring a LF (unless it's a franchise type guy) until Ludwick signs with someone else.
Jocketty went out and got Latos last offseason, signed Votto and Phillips to huge contracts before the season and raised payroll to it's highest amount ever, so I'm not sure how they can be deemed "cheap"
