Cincinnati Reds looked into Kris Bryant of the Cubs prior to trade deadline, per report

Horsehoes and bocce, two games where ‘close’ actually means something. The unique concoction that is traderade, however, is pretty much binary at the end of July each normal year, meaning it either happens concretely, or does not.

It appears the Cincinnati Reds looked into making a very precise tincture this recently passed trade deadline, but couldn’t quite come up with the right parts for the right prices in time to see it through. As noted by Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic, the Reds had eyes on acquiring Kris Bryant, then of the Chicago Cubs, and using him as a centerfielder for their stretch run.
