Pair them with Gray and Iglesias and you have a really solid pitching core to build around. If we can acquire a frontline starter to pair with Castillo this offseason then look tf out.
    I would just like to point out the fact those two players signed minor league deals shows how messed up Mlb free agency is right now moreso than how smart the reds are. It’s absurd Iglesias and Dietrich didn’t get 2-3 year deals. They are both at worst very solid MLB bench players.
    What would you say.....ya do here?

    Iglesias is a bottom third ss so it is not surprised he did not get a deal. For other teams his level of production is easy to find maybe not the reds.

    The good: Better starting pitching, better defense at SS and RF, better management, better bench, and the FO and David Bell seem to be in sync.

    The worst: Depending on the options, the Reds could face as many as 9 players leaving as free agents. No way that they will sign them all. The team is stuck in that limbo where trading these guys away at the deadline probably kills this season, but keeping them may hurt next season.
