This is true:

“At some point, when Johnny (Cueto) gets beyond this contract and (Joey) Votto and some of the other guys, we’re not sure we’ll be in position to sign these guys again,” Jocketty said. “It just depends on the revenues we’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 we’ll be in great shape to try and re-sign these guys.”

The Reds are in good shape as far as the minor league system. But, as Jocketty said, it’s paramount for a small-market club to keep the development train rolling.

Indeed, Fayman.
