I don't think selling high on Cueto is out of the question either if the return is great enough.
Thankfully, the Reds don't subscribe to the "bullpen will take care of itself" philosophy. You could be right, but I fully expect a lefty reliever to be acquired.
Arredondo was quite poor in the second half. Not sure he will be with the club next year, and if he is he has a lot to prove.
I still like Cingrani as a starter in AAA. If the Reds hold onto Arroyo this season, they will have room for a young starter in 2014. I'd give Cingrani a chance to get ready as a starter at AAA, before possibly converting him to the pen.
