Except they already had plenty of money for the arb signings without making that deal. They've still got close to $10M of the pre-Casey bubble to spend.
IF the Reds dumped Casey to pay off arb contracts then they did so on top of a payroll slash at a time when league revenues are bursting at the seams. I'm no fan of the current management/ownership, but I give them more credit that that.
