I realize there is a cap now, but even before that the Reds haven't signed any big name kids like they did with Yorman and Duran since, well, Yorman and Duran.

Should there be an expectation that they land some of these players more often? The Rangers, Red Sox, Cubs and other big spenders are willing to gamble in this market, why aren't the Reds? Actually there are quite a few teams absent from this market, but some of the better run teams are definitely conspicuously present. I'd like to see the Reds at least roll the dice once every 2 years in this market.
