Also, as of today the Reds may have the best rotation in baseball. Hopefully that doesn't just translate to a lot of 1-0, 2-1, etc. losses.

 

So it turns out this has resulted in a lot of low scoring losses. The most recent 1-0 loss, however, was accomplished in a manner in which no MLB team has ever done before. The Reds allowed just one baserunner over the course of 9 innings. He scored on a sacrifice fly. No team had ever lost a 9 inning game in which they only allowed a single baserunner.

The Reds have been making serious moves this off-season. They picked up:

2B Mike Moustakas - $64M / 4 year contract

SP Wade Miley - $15M / 2 year contract
OF Shogo Akiyama - $21M / 3 year contract

OF Nick Castellanos - $64M / 4 year contract
RP Pedro Strop - $1.8M / 1 year contract
SP Trevor Bauer and Reliever Michael Lorenzen - 1 year contract extensions

 

In other news, Eugenio Suarez had surgery on his shoulder after a swimming pool accident. He's expected to return near the start of the season.

 

This is the most active off-season from the Reds in a long time, and indicates they are pushing for titles. In the 2010's the Reds spent a total of $121.1M in free agency. In this off-season, the Reds have already spent $164M. (This number assumes Castellanos fills out his 4 year contract, which he notably has opt out clauses after the 2020 and 2021 seasons if he isn't happy and wants to leave).
