Indiandad is on a distinguished road
The Reds payroll after Arbitration (assuming no FA signings) will be around $93M next year. $87M if they trade Hamilton. That leaves an extra $10-$15M to spend. If they front load Gennett and Suarez now they'll have that much more to spend once Mez and Homer are off the books in the next two years. They would essentially have the same core team (assuming the starting pitching pans out)along with a lot of extra money to fill any needs to make a serious run.
