    The Jocketty haters will still find something wrong with this deal and a reason it should not have been made.

    But i think its a great move

    Agree that its a great move. My only concern is that Madson, you would think, would command a ton of money. Thus, this could preclude the Reds from extending Phillips or addressing either 3B or LF.

    Just turned 50 on the first...life moves too fast these days.

    But opening day cannot get here fast enough.

    Not extending Phillips might be a feature, not a bug. They've had a lot of time to negotiate and haven't concluded a deal. Walt may have decided that what Phillips wants is unreasonable, so he's gone ahead and spent the money elsewhere.

    I agree LF might have been a better use of the money since LFs typically impact run differentials more than closers. We'll have to see what Madson's price tag was. Still, unless it is insane, this helps a lot more than resigning Cordero or adding Wood.

    Imagine a post-season bullpen with Chapman, Marshall, and Madson to close games.

    Obviously getting way ahead of things, but its been a long time since I felt the Reds really had a legitimate chance to compete for a WS.

    Heyman now tweeting that it is a 1-year deal. No $$$ figures mentioned.

    I don't get why he would sign for only one year.

    The closer market really dried up about a month ago. For Madson, sign a 1-year deal and hopefully have a great 2012 and try your luck in the market again next year.

    Fantastic.

    This is about the best possible offseason the Reds could even hope for... While their two biggest rivals have been weakened by free agent defections the Reds have added the best starter on the market and two elite relievers for the bullpen. And if that wasn't good enough, they're getting two first round comp picks for Cordero and Hernandez without even having to offer arbitration.

    John Fay wrong again. He said there was no chance.

    So excited for this team. Barring injuries or complete flops from Mes and Cozart this team wins the Central or a close second to St. Louis no doubt.
