    Re: Reds Acquire Jonathan Broxton

    Broxton has been a 2 way street all season. Sometimes lights out, other games he is plain awful. Some games he can't find the strike zone if you widened it by 2X. Other games he gets 3 grounders and its over.

    Sulbaran isn't too bad but if Joseph is included I think its way overpay.

    Walt overpays once again.

    Anyone else you want to add, Walt?

    Wow.

    With Kansas City in Cleveland, is there any chance Broxton is in uniform and ready to go tonight?

    ??? Not sure I'd ever call Donnie Joseph the "closer of the future" unless he suddenly develops a 97 mph fastball.
    Opinions are like belly buttons. Everybody has one, and they don't want someone else's shoved into their face.

    My guess is Walt doesn't like all the heavy usage.

    Broxton has 23 saves, he can close games. He will back up Chappy at closer and set up as well.

    Reds pen from the right side was weaker than left side. (Still is, even with the new addition.)
    As soon as I saw this deal, THIS is what I thought. Not thrilled with including Joseph in the trade, but it's not that big of a deal. Neither prospects were going to see time with Cincy anytime soon IMO.

    Wow.
    He gave value to get value for Latos. Other than that I'm not sure what history of "overpaying" you are talking about? Zach Stewart? Looking like we sold high there.

    It's also about the rotation. Another righty to the pen leaves LeCure free to go to the rotation if we need him. With no other acquisition, the choice would be between LeCure and Redmond (possibly Villareal). I'd guess they prefer the more experienced LeCure. We're going to need some starts from somebody other than our current 5 to get to the end of this thing.

    Amazing trade for Royals. I might rather have Donnie Joseph than Broxton in the big leagues right now.

    Crap. I knew Sulbaran straight up was too good to be true. Hate to lose Donnie Joseph. Best left-handed relief pitcher in our sytem.

    ??? He's closed at every level since he's been drafted.

    You don't need a 97 mph fastball when your K/9 has been over 9 since you were drafted.

    Chapman's spoiling you.

    There's good reasons that baseball writers don't usually end up getting GM jobs and this tweet is one of them.

    There are plenty of guys out there who are now working for MLB teams who did things incredibly similar to what KG does right now.
