The amount pitching depth, if Corcino, Cingrani, and Stephenson progress as expected, is incomparable in my lifetime of being a Reds fan. But it also gives the Reds options if a sudden need arises.
And the farm system is restocking itself in the lower levels. By the time some of these contracts expire, surely, replacements will arrive from the minors.
It's a great situation to have.
And if you paid attention in the early 2000's, you remember the yearly scrap heap signings and who's who at all positions. It was hard to keep up and remember anyone.
