Ã¢â‚¬Å“At some point, when Johnny (Cueto) gets beyond this contract and (Joey) Votto and some of the other guys, weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re not sure weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll be in position to sign these guys again,Ã¢â‚¬Â Jocketty said. Ã¢â‚¬Å“It just depends on the revenues weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll be able to generate in the coming years. If we continue to win, I think we will. Our attendance will improve, our revenues will improve and weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll be in great shape to try and re-sign these guys.Ã¢â‚¬Â
The Reds are in good shape as far as the minor league system. But, as Jocketty said, itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s paramount for a small-market club to keep the development train rolling.
