Re: Reds Acquire Jonathan Broxton
Broxton's HR/9 should play well at GABP, and that should help the bullpen even more. Hopefully he's deemed healthy and might get a bounce back in that K/9. One other thing, this move also signifies that the Reds might be waving the white flag on Masset and Bray this year.
I'm not too worried about what the Reds gave up. They kept their upper level prospects in the system, especially Hamilton, so the system is still fine.
I'm disappointed they couldn't find some more offense, but at the same time I'm not sure what the asking prices were. As MWM alluded to in the other thread, I'd rather keep Hamilton. If other teams zoned in on Billy then maybe it's best Walt didn't pull that trigger.
All in all, I'm fine with the deal so long as Broxton's fully healthy.
