    Broxton has been about wht one should expect him to be....let's cross our fingers that is BABIP doesn't normalize. But his was certainly a strange contract from a FO that was getting a reputation of giving smart contracts. Broxton's numbers could be a lot worse.

    A Miltonian contract.

    Do I sense the Walt Jocketty mystique is starting to wear thin?

    You mean because the Reds just won 3 out of 4, 4 out of 7, and currently have the 4th best record in MLB?

    Yes, the mystique is wearing thin, especially considering where the Reds were before Walt arrived.

    "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."

    I hated the signing, but it is nowhere near as bad the Milton contract. Broxton's contract is Daniel Tosh, but Milton's contract is Dane Cook. You try to avoid Tosh, but when there are no other options, he'll do. When I'm forced to watch Dane Cook, I look for forks to shove into my eyes, because that would be less painful than watching him.

    Braxton was sore, told Dusty he could go one inning.

    No opinion on this myself; I'm just noting the comparisons to Milton's contract.

    I knew Toni wasn't alright, but what about Brox?
