    Except the clock has struck 12 on Paul. He's better than Robinson and the Reds need two guys. Actually, assuming Ludwick comes back, I'd have preferred a lefty. Heisey becomes Choo's caddy and lets Choo sit against LHP some of the time and the needed lefty is caddy for Ludwick and the at minimum 2 days per week starter that Luddy will need to sit when he comes back. If they could have gotten one, he could have platooned with Heisey for now while Robinson caddied for Choo. They'd be a better team. IMO, Maxwell is a better alternative than any OF on the current team not named Bruce or Choo.

    I have no desire for Xavier Paul to fill that role. Todd Benzinger's bat with Kal Daniels glove.

    If the lefty OF could have been a guy for the CF mix in 2014, it would have been worth parting with a little talent.

    Maxwell would have been a nice addition, lot o' power in that swing.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Ludwick's stint in AAA is not going well. He is something like 4 for 33 with 1 home run. As much as I'd like to write it off in a "spring training stats don't mean anything" way there is the fact that his stats may be bad because his injury has affected him. It wasn't something as simple as a mild hamstring pull. He had surgery on his shoulder capsule. I don't think anyone knows how he can preform either this year or next.

    I wouldn't expect Ludwick to perform as he did last year, but I wouldn't read too much into his stats in AAA. The adrenaline hasn't kicked in yet, and last year it took him a good while to find his timing and get in a groove. Ludwick is unlikely to be a huge difference-maker, but I think he's an upgrade over anything we currently have in left.

    Yep. Ludwick's first 100 AB last year had folks clamoring for his release. And then he got rolling. He's been a historically slow starter, I'm not expecting anything different when he returns.

    Get all of the struggling out of the way in AAA, Ryan.

    Yeah, I'm surprised the Astros let him go.
