Reds scored pretty near league average for runs in 2018. Problem was on the mound. They should have more pop as currently made up - but probably are still way off on the pitching compared to the league. This has the look of a team looking to make it more interesting to fans and have the possibility of deadline deals in July if it doesn't work.
As noted on dollars and players it looks low risk and possible good upside for the Reds. Can't really blame them for taking a swing based on the last few seasons.
As currently constructed yes. However, as Buckeye2015 said, there seems more to come. They have talked to Grandhal, and are rumored to be in on realmuto. If there looking at catchers it may be that they may have a team that has interest in Barnhart. A team still looking to contend while cutting payroll. Barnhart has a team friendly contract. Plus they still have valuable prospects.
So I believe pitching is still on the way. Who is looking for catching, looking to dump some payroll? And has some top flight pitching?
