The asking price for Dylan Cease is predictably absurd

The Cincinnati Reds have done this to themselves.

You’ll recall that they spent the bulk of the 2022 regular season floundering, leaking water from the self-imposed rebuild that began the prior year, losing games hand over fist as the active roster they’d put together for a 2020 run was torn to pieces. They were held afloat by a pitching staff that was already devoid of Sonny Gray, a star pitcher who’d been dealt before the season in a deal that, in hindsight, now seems a little light on return.

A pitcher with a great track record controlled cheaply for more than just a rental season?
