Re: Source: Ryan Ludwick to Reds
Ludwick was having a damn good year in July 2010 when he was traded to Death Valley for hitters.
.280+ average, .480+ slugging and .820+ OPS
He's only 33, and GABP is a better hitters park then St. Louis. I'm not saying he'll put up those number again. But, he's got to be as motivated as ever. This is his one chance to get a big contract. He signed for one year with a mutual option with the idea of putting up a big season in GABP and then cashing in. He doesn't even need to have a season like 08, as that is probably an outlier, but a whole season like he was having with St. Louis in 2010 would be huge for this team.
