The GM of the Reds had the following comments:
I give our guys credit. They’ve played hard. Eventually, we’re going to get back full strength and get back to first place
When his statement was run through the FBI's truthometer this is actually what he said...
I give our guys credit. They know our ownership group won't permit any additional monies added to the payroll, so they know they have to play hard because it's them or bust and Eventually, if things don't improve I will begin trading their butts off to add even more younger players in our minor league system we’re going to get back to full strength and get back to first place before the end of this decade.”
