    Assuming no other moves, who from the pen goes?

That's an amazing statement."

    3.5 walks per 9 innings.
    6.3 strikeouts per 9 innings.

    That is not what a good reliever looks like.

    Are you guys trying to create the most dominant bullpen in the last 20 years? This is overkill, lol. Great move on the Reds part.

    His velocity has recently been returning, Doug. Remember he's coming off surgery. Those K numbers will be higher by the end of the year IMHO.

    He's not worth a top prospect like Gregorius lt alone Hamilton. He's worth Ondrusek. It all depends on what we gave up. Who around here pegged a RH reliever as a top need?

    April/May he has 7 walks/12 strikeouts in 19.2 innings.
    June/July he has 7 walks/13 strikeouts in 16 innings.

    I guess it is up, but it still isn't good. And his WHIP in June/July is 1.56. That isn't a guy you should be going after to try and improve your bullpen.

    Reds gave up Austin Kearns and Felipe Lopez for the right handed reliever.

    It would be nice if the price was Redmond, who was pulled back from his start in Louisville today. Likely to be a bit more, though.

    This just feels like a move that leads into another move. But time is winding down. I just don't get it.

    I do think Broxton can be better than Gary Majewski.
