Cincinnati Reds trade targets - Tampa Bay Rays OF Tommy Pham

2020 Cincinnati Reds: good, or at least they’re supposed to be.

So far in the limited time we’ve had since the end of the 2019 regular season, all we’ve heard from the Reds brass is that a playoff push in the 2020 season is something they consider a must, particularly in comments from Dick Williams to various outlets (including to The Athletic’s C. Trent Rosecrans.)

On the ‘front office effort scale,’ that certains seems to jive with the new-look Reds we’ve seen develop over the last calendar year. This time last October, the idea that the Reds would land the likes of Yasiel Puig, Alex Wood, Tanner Roark, Sonny Gray, and Trevor Bauer, among others, seemed like a mere pipe dream, but despite the team on the field’s inability to get over the winning hump, all those acquisitions actually happened.
