The Cincinnati Reds started their off-season housecleaning process this past week when they let Ryan Ludwick and Jack Hannahan go.  Both of these players had options for 2015 that would have cost the Reds a large amount of money.  Since neither played well this past season, the Reds were not willing to tie up...
