    Reds Acquire Broxton

    Discuss here.

    Twitter reporting that the Reds gave up JC Sulbaran & Donnie Joseph.

    This could help move people around and make a push for span again

    Look at 2013 here also. Chapman to rotation, Broxton to closer...

    Don't forget about Madson. He said he'll come at a discount. If we don't trade Broxton away, he could be a nice set up man next year for Madson.

    I don't know what we gave up but, provided it wasn't a king's ransom, I really like this move.

    Twitter reporting JC Sulbaran is included in the deal, but there seems to be some uncertainty as to whether he is the only one.

    With Ondrusek doing his summer fade again, I would rather have JB in 8th than Logan.
    As other poster said, is Walt making this deal thinking of next season as well similar to Rolen a few years ago, and thinking of Chapman to rotation next season ?

    Re: Reds Acquire Broxton

    Game thread after game thread i keep hearing that Dusty is over-using Chapman... but the fact is that we did not have another reliever that had proven effective in the closer's role. This year is not the year to experiement with the unproven. Broxton has that closer's mentality and a great ground ball percentage which will play well with out excellent infield defense. now Dusty has the ability to sit Chapman from time to time even though it is a closing opportunity.

    We gave up nothing that was helping us this year and apparently nothing that was surefire help in the future.

    I like this move.

    The walks do not worry as much because of the groundball percentage... that spells lots of DPs given our excellent middle defense.

    Broxton is a FA in 2013

    You aren't going to like this, but apparently Joseph went with Sulbaran too.

    We're better than we were yesterday. Our bullpen is crazy now, talk about shortening games.
