Hey Homer! If you can put it together, you'll put the Reds over the top....think about it.
It is possible to resign Broxton. We did extend Marshall. You can't accurately grade a trade until a year or two has passed. I like the move, for now.
I can still see a waiver wire claim for a left handed bench bat.
He's got 1.40 WHIP but a 2.27 ERA -- what I do like is 1 HR in 35 innings
The older I get - the better I was
and yes - I hate the Cardinals (Reds fan since 1958)
just b/c he's signed 2 months does not mean its only 2 months
If Broxton gets 3 big outs in October, the SunDeck will be loving this trade.
I don't hate it. Giving up Joseph who has been pitching well in the minors is a bummer, but the bullpen is now amazing and people will like this when we win a tight 1 run game in October.
Sulbaran and Joseph are likely bullpen arms in the majors. I wouldn't be surprised if one of them doesn't come back and "BJ Ryan" us, but that is the price of upgrading a shallow pen for a WS.
Just find the next one. Notice we didn't trade the guys they think as starters. Tells me how they feel about Cingrani.
Good thing we got a BP arm with the way we are over working them the last two nights,
