Can the new Tyler Mahle be part of the next ‘big three’ for the Cincinnati Reds?

The Cincinnnati Reds began a starting pitching Renaissance a few years back, something the franchise has desperately needed since, I dunno, the Roosevelt Administration. The emergence of Luis Castillo, the signing and rebuild of Sonny Gray, and the acquisition of Trevor Bauer gave the Reds a trio as formidable atop their rotation as any in baseball, and for one of the few times in my life, the Reds became a team that lived and died by its pitching, not its hitting.

Bauer, of course, is set to be a free agent once this World Series wraps, and his obliteration of MLB hitters during the course of the 2020 season might well see him take home a Cy Young Award for his efforts.
