    Ryan Ludwick to Pirates

    Per MLBTR:

    Pirates added outfielder Ryan Ludwick for a PTBNL.

    Added another (potentially) big bat to their lineup. Will it be enough?

    So every NL Central team except for the Reds have worked to improve themselves.
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    I'm glad Ludwick went to Pittsburgh instead of coming to Cincinnati.

    My feeling as well. I don't think Ludwick is an upgrade over what we can already trot out in LF.

    The Reds got rid of Gomes! Addition by subtraction. If Yonder keeps having AB's like the 4 he's had since he's been up, Dusty will eventually come to his senses and the Reds will have added the .800+ OPS left fielder they need without giving up anyone of note.

    I think Ludwick had a chance to hit well at GABP but ultimately I don't see him adding much to the Pirates. Their Lee acquisition was better.
    "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."
