    I would be willing to bet that maybe a couple million is deferred!

    With Marshall and now Madson, if the reds have the lead going into the 8th inning....ballgame!

    BOOM goes the dynamite!!!!
    Not this year...maybe a Wild Card

    1 year deal... I'd be willing to bet an open closer role is going to be a big incentive for Marshall to extend. Good use of our resources for this season, and it'll pay off if we start bringing the crowd back in.

    No Prince, 50 without Braun, No Pujols, No LaRussa and no Duncan. The Reds have one of the best offense in baseball returning and added Latos, Marshall and Madson. I don't see how we're not NL Central favorites and huge contenders for the pennant. This is the most excited I've been for a Reds season in my lifetime. It's going to be a loooooong winter. I wish I could freeze myself and wake up during Spring training.

    This is exciting! Wow!

    I have to ask this, and please understand I'm not a Dusty-hater. But I think this sends a pretty clear message that Dusty's boys have to put up this year as he goes into a contract year. It will be VERY interesting to see what happens with Dusty's contract status at the end of 2012. With this roster in this division, how can he NOT win? The question is, how far does his team have to go for him to get a new contract for 2013 and beyond. Just how high is the bar set for the 2012 expectations?

    I'm pumped, tough. This will be fun!!!

    This also means they are committed to Chapman as a starter.

    Re: Reds sign Ryan Madson

    Just imagine if any of the following come true:

    1. Rolen has a nice ~.780-.800 OPS bounce-back year
    2. Bruce takes a step forward
    3. Arroyo has a 2012 more like 2010 than 2011
    4. Mesaroco has a + .800 OPS first year
    5. Chapman becomes the SP we hoped for in 2010

    They have a solid pitching core, a solid lineup, and many legit possibilities for individuals to improve in 2012.

    2012 should be a good year.

    This is awesome. Mat Latos to start. Ryan Madsen to close. What an offseason. Go Reds.
    What if this is as good as it gets?

    With this deal, if Chappy becomes a solid starter, we become "World Serious!"

    I'm Busting. Jerry I'm Busting! It was just a couple of seasons back I started following baseball and the Reds. Now this offseason, I've never felt more happy about a team since...since....

    Now I actually thought they'd sign Cordero (phew) but with a sandwich pick in-between. Thank you and goodbye!

    Good for you, bad for STL. $8.5MIL was a little more than I was thinking he'd get but the Reds bullpen just got REAL GOOD! Looks like a CIN - STL 2 horse race this year, this ought to be fun!

    I like it. Rumors were they offered CoCo 2 years $14 mill and then backed it down to 1 year $7 mill. I like Madsen for 1 year $8.5 mill. It gives us another year to see if we can develop a closer in house or gotta go outside again. Well done Walt.
