I've not seen this discussed (maybe it has) But at my count the Reds have the 9th worst record this year. So who is going to be the free agents that the Reds can sign? This will probably be the only chance they have to sign free agents without giving up draft picks.
The Reds don't have very much going for them in the trade market (except pitchers) The AAA team has nothing of value. Is there going to be any outfielders that will be affordable? Just wondering.
