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

    Chapman's spoiling you.
    Just for context, Joseph has 5 saves this year in 18 appearances in AAA. 13 in 26 at AA earlier this year, and 8 in 57 in 2011 in AA.

    He has closed, but he hasn't necessarily been used as a closer, per se.

    Re: Reds Acquire Jonathan Broxton

    Reds fans find out we traded for a reliever:

    OMG Why did we trade for a reliiver? We have so many relievers already!

    Find out DJ is in trade:

    OMG why are we trading away good bullpen arms???

    By the sounds of it he's already good enough to be their(KC) closer.

    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Does the hand-wringing surprise you?

    The thing is, I imagine most of the same people that complain of overpaying would be complaining if they didn't make the trades at all.

    I mean, how upset would people be right now if they had not traded for Latos, Marshall and Broxton and head into the deadline no better?

    Walt sure doesn't bargain hunt well. I'll hold out hope that he sees Broxton getting stronger down the stretch I guess.

    Props to our own Doug for once again bringing up Zach Stewart for Rolen in a tweet from Fay.

    This system is not packed with LH pitching prospects. I can't believe Walt thinks that 2 mos of Big Brox is worth both of these guys.

    Redszone apparently hates this trade.

    With this knowledge you can now safely book Broxton to an All Star level second half helping cement our playoff spot.

    Thanks, but I was still under the impression he'd been pegged at least as closer potential since AA. Seems like he had the right peripherals anyway.

    And I still stand by the fact that we overpaid. We were literally the only team who wanted Rolen and that he would accept a trade to. And we gave up our #1 pitching prospect, plus a Major Leaguer and a minor league reliever who had some value.

    I hate to see DJ headed out of the Cincy organization, I really do. I liked he and Freeman a lot. If DJ ends up on K.C.'s major league roster...good for him.
