    2 years later and this is still a problem.

    Re: Reds Acquire Jonathan Broxton

    A rare win for Patrick Bateman:

    I know one thing... Baker and whatever decided the Ondrusek was our RH setup man. Simon and Lecure have been better pitchers than both O and Broxton this season, but neither was going to be used in set-up situations.

    That choice was between O, Broxton, and whomever we were trading for. O is an awful choice, Broxton is probably adequate. His reputation at least makes him usable in set-up situations in Baker's eyes.

    In the end, we gave up a guy who is almost for sure a LOOGY, and a minor league pitcher with flyball rates that precludes him from being anything other than a relief prospect for a guy whom respresents an upgrade over the current options for the role that Broxton will be used in.

    The system is likely broken within, however, the stuff we gave up is probably minimal, and the guy we got fits whatever they are aiming for. Overall its a whatever move, that is probably fine as long as it gets lost in the shuffle of a bigger purpose for a first place team.

    Hopefully Walt can pull off a similar heist for a reliever this year.

    Problem could be picking up salary. Teams probably would trade off highly paid relievers. Padres?

    Reds already have a few large bullpen contracts. So . . . .

    Hated the Broxton deal. Hated it. Didn't think Billy would hit at all this year (I did expect this production but about mid 2015). Mentioned in a thread in spring Mes would never be a good hitter. I talk to myself all the time. I've quit listening, though....
