Re: Ludwick to decline option
Ludwick is too prime a DH candidate to beat out for his services at this age.
Some AL teams are moving away from using the DH for just 1 player. And I doubt Ludwick wants to go into that role at this point anyway. Lots of players prefer to keep playing defense. Maybe the Reds will get beat out by an AL team for Ludwick, but I'll surprised if he signs to DH.
