The Marshall Trade will go down as one of the best the Reds have ever made. Get a top-shelf reliever for 3 fringe MLB players (at best). Then re-sign said reliever at an extremely-reasonable rate for 3 additional seasons. Then said reliever might become closer due to Madson injury. Reds would be in terrible shape without Marshall this season and they gave up very little in the grand scheme to get him. Felt like it was a lot to us, but it really wasn't. And even beyond this season the trade looks great because Marshall will be a HUGE part of the bullpen at least through the 2015 season. Either as the set-up man or the closer. What a great trade.
