Cingrani is one answer. More likely IMO is the Reds will acquire a lefty set up type this off-season.
Arredondo, Lecure, Simon, Redmond, Broxton, Hoover, Masset, all right handed.
Something needs to change.
Arredondo is a lefty killer. And Cingrani was expected to move to the pen when he got to the majors. He's there. I'm good with how the pen is right now. Look for Leake or Bailey (or maybe Arroyo?) to be moved at the winter meetings.
I don't think selling high on Cueto is out of the question either if the return is great enough.
Sabermetrics can be boiled down to this simple truism: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.
