There is NO EXCUSE for a team with the Reds budget to have 18 million per year tied up between Marshall, Broxton and Chapman.
Hell, the Reds could put some of that toward actually keeping Choo. I cannot fathom Jocketty lets this happen without trading Broxton or Chapman.
The Reds do not have $18MM "per year" locked up with those guys. That is kind of misleading.
Also, at this stage Walt can do whatever he wants as far as I am concerned. He has my trust.
