Hopefully the post season of the 2020 covid season carries over....so hard to tell for me.....I was just thankful we got to play and witness some meaningful baseball out of our beloved RedLegs last year.

Apparently MLB baseball intends to open spring training on time and has plans for a full 162 game schedule. Even limited attendance where the rules allow. Minor leagues, if they play at all, will start no earlier than May 1st.

As to the Reds, they look to be battling Pittsburgh for the cellar. Trading or not signing their better high salary players seem to indicate another rebuild.

It is get something now in a trade or lose all investment when they hit free agency. The Reds spent money on players over the last three years with little or nothing to show for it. Might as well cut payroll if you know you are not going to be in contention. It is simply business, the fans be damned.

Trevor Bauer Becomes The Highest Paid Player In Baseball

https://www.si.com/mlb/2021/02/05/trevo ... es-dodgers

The rich get richer. The Reds had no chance of signing Bauer.
$102M for three years with $40M in year one with the Dodgers.

Indeed it is. If the Reds front office is intent on another rebuild, I would rather see the club spend their resources on the farm system and develop prospects.That way they can at least get 4 years out of a player before they move on..The rent a veteran for two years wastes money with little results. What the Reds are doing now doesn't work.

The Reds were only 31-29 regular season, 31-31 after the playoffs, and that was with Bauer. There problem last year was the Reds having the MLB worst team batting average of .212, They could be a .500 ball club again and be somewhat of a contender in the very weak NL Central if they can hit around .250. I would not get your hopes up thoughh given the Reds woeful performance over the last ten years.
