    I just Googled it. It doesn't look like a whole lot more than blind speculation from Redleg Nation, but Betts is going to take some serious cabbage. The article said he made $20 million this season in arbitration is eligible for one morel year of arbitration before he goes into free agency.

    Could the Reds go after Mookie Betts for center field?

    Seems like a lot of chatter on Twitter that the Reds are going to try and bring Grandal back.

    How much would mental toughness for the bullpen cost them?

    A BUNCH weren’t close, what are they waiting on??? I’m like you, they’ve let a bunch of guys go, I honestly thought House would be the first, he’s not related to the Castalinis is he????!!!!!

    Heard a report this morning on the radio that GM Williams says the Reds have cash to spend on big free agents this winter.

    And if everyone said after the trade that Puig was only going to be here for one year because the Reds couldn't afford him afterwards...does that make everyone else above him priced too high as well?

    This was a no brainer.

    How about the trade yesterday?

    Big question is, where is Galvis going to play? I'd be okay with an Iglesias (SS) and Galvis (2B) infield, but I've seen where the Brewers might be interested in signing him too.

    As to Jankowski...ehh. Some speed, but just a career .241 hitter. Where's he going to fit into the mix? Late inning defensive substitute?

    1.Has there been any off season signings yet?
    2. Any coaching changes? (3rd base coach fired, hopefully)
    3. Will the Reds actually part with any money to sign a quality player?
