But, either way, if Chapman is the closer they are paying Broxton 7 million a year, and Marshall 5.5 million a year for middle relief. 12.5 million a year for 2 middle relief pitchers is not something I agree with at all unless the Reds are considering a 125 million dollar payroll.
For the record, Brox + Marshall = 8.5MM in 2013.
