There is room. The new money coming on will let the Reds add payroll for raises. It is intelligent forecasting and some luck figuring who is worth it and who to look to the market or the farm to replace. Cards fans should realize money ain't their big seperator anymore. Reds have an owner who will buck up. Even the Cards economize where they can and which team manages to figure the right answers from loaded farms and the current rosters will likely rise enough to keep ahead of the other. I like the Reds chances a lot over the next few years.
