    Best bullpen arm on the market

    Walt should trade for. It is clear to me outside Chapman and Marshall(and he isn't having his best year) this teams bullpen is a little thin. Another power arm replacing Ondrusek would really make this staff strong. I fear watching him pitch in October.

    Our bullpen has the lowest ERA in all of baseball. If that's thin then you might wanna rethink your expectations.

    I would not say he is great, but Broxton is certainly available. Royals would probably unload for mid tier prospect.

    I'll pass on another bullpen arm. We've got JJ Hoover ready for action in AAA, Masset on the way back, and bigger problems on the offense.

    I have trouble finding a spot for Massett when he gets off the DL. Every single pitcher in that bullpen does not deserve a demotion

    We are stronger in relief pitching than we are anything else...but then again there's no such thing as having a pen that's too good. Its an area every club is constantly trying to improve...but if Walt makes a move, no doubt it will be a relief arm for an outfielder. We can live without some of the relievers we have and other clubs are desperately trying to bolster their bullpens for late in the season.

    The pen will be fine. Manufacturing runs against playoff-caliber pitching is, was and always will be priority No. 1 in any type of deals.
    Rounding third and heading for home...

    Spot on. We actually have a bit of a surplus of relievers even without Masset. Hoover geting sent down with good numbers demonstrates this. So does our team bullpen ERA. So does the fact that our long man or mop up man Simon has sterling numbers.

    Re: Best bullpen arm on the market

    Why on earth would the Reds feel like they needed such a huge improvement to what has been the best bullpen in the National League?

    Seriously, guys. I know we all want a move to be made, but some of these threads are just getting silly.
