Does he move into Broxton's role with Broxton now as the closer?

I hope not. Marshall and Hoover are both significantly better, so I hope those guys inherit the eighth inning. Ondrusek has posted solid ERAs the last few years, but his peripherals don't match the results. He owned a 6.4 K/9 and 5.1 BB/9 last season. Neither of those numbers are really very good for a relief pitcher.

Also, over the course of the past three seasons, Ordusek's WHIP totals have looked like this:

2010 - 1.18
2011 - 1.35
2012 - 1.50

He isn't really trending in the right direction. I'm hoping he's used mainly as a 6th or 7th inning guy in 2013.

Also doubt it, if Massett is healty, he'll be the 8th inning RHP...I think Hoover (who i eventually think may close) will be more a middle guy like logan....side question..anybody seen terms on logan's two year deal?

AP story released late friday night answered my question for me...2.3 million. 950,000 next year then up to 1.35 mil in '14

Here was on Logan on the Reds Hot Stove League last Monday night.
(700WLW) He said every reliever has the goal of being a closer.

Really not a bad deal for an above average middle reliever

Not at all.....even if it does leave one more year of arbitration
