    I repeat, JC Sulbaran traded to the Royals for Broxton.

    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.
    Since when do we use WHIP to measure pitchers? Doug, I know you wouldn't ordinarily use that measure if it didn't suit your case.

    I like it.

    It's not all about K's.

    Dude has a 56.6% groundball rate. That kicks butt when you're pitching in GABP.

    Bowden did say a half hour ago that Broxton would allow the Reds to trade a reliever as part of the Span package. So maybe that's the endgame here.

    1.50 WHIP over the last 3 years, with a K/9 that is Ondrusk-esque.

    Meh. Good deal for KC.

    And this isn't "hand-wringing" either. Simply an opinion.

    Re: Reds Acquire Jonathan Broxton

    More stats from baseball-reference.com:

    Broxton has his best HR/9 at 0.3 of his career. Actually it ties his 2008 season.
    Also, his BB/9 is the lowest it's been in 3 years at 3.5. It was 3.4 in 2009, his best season.

    Dude might be on the comeback. Love that groundball rate in GABP.

    If it's Sulbaran-for-Broxton straight up, I like the deal. Sulbaran has several pitchers ahead of him on the Reds' top prospects list (Corcino, Stephenson, Cingrani, Travieso, Lotzkar).

    Re: Reds Acquire Jonathan Broxton

    I think this trade is all about Aroldis.

    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.)

    The one thing that always helps in the post season... Relief pitching.

    Sulbran for Broxton a much fairer trade than Cox for Mujeica.

    Thanks for the info, 21.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."
