I agree that pitching and catcher are glaring problem areas, but the Reds are a bad team. It's not like they've got a single problem. No one move is going to be a panacea. It's going to take numerous changes to create the kind of team that can go out and be dangerous.
So I'm fine with the notion that major resources should be reserved for other moves, but that doesn't mean that some resources can't be devoted to sorting out the OF. Plus, who knows how many OFs head out the door to get the pitching and catching the team needs. It's possible the Reds could find themselves looking to bring an OF into the mix to offset what they've dealt away.
