Re: Reds Acquire Jonathan Broxton
There is a point in a ballplayer's career where they are done and no matter what their record says, they're not going to ever be good again. I think of Griffey's last year in Seattle. I think Rolen is seeing the light perhaps this year. Abreu is fighting off the reaper. Damon is closer. Ibanez is ageless. Matsui gave up the ghost this year.
Broxton isn't there yet. Not even close. And I'd put his name and reputation up with some of the best in the game. If you stop and think, we've got Jonathan Broxton setting up. That is some crazy upside for this bullpen. Way more this year than anyone currently in the minors. If you like prospects, Broxton is a great prospect for this team to have acquired.
