My guess is Walt doesn't like all the heavy usage.
Broxton has 23 saves, he can close games. He will back up Chappy at closer and set up as well.
Reds pen from the right side was weaker than left side. (Still is, even with the new addition.)
As soon as I saw this deal, THIS is what I thought. Not thrilled with including Joseph in the trade, but it's not that big of a deal. Neither prospects were going to see time with Cincy anytime soon IMO.
Pitching and defense...anything else is gravy. Mmmm...gravy.
