    Broxton......

    Anyone seen him pitch this year?

    His ERA and number of saves look good, but H/IP and # of strikeouts don't seem all that favorable for a back of bullpen guy.

    Is he showing signs of returning to past form? Has he learned to pitch with carft and finesse? What's up with him?

    I'm dying of curiosity. Anybody seen him pitch lately? Hows his velocity?

    PS I'm going to watchhis last outing on on MLB TV later, but don't want to wait that long for a first report, as I am dying of curiosity!

    Yes, but putting two guys on base the inning you enter the game is not particularly ideal for a set up man either. Anyway, I'm an optimist by nature and think that maybe Brox is just starting to round into form following his elbow injury (surgery?) last year.

    More hits than innings pitched, would like to see that reversed for a set-up/ shutdown guy.

    I just want to know if there's ever been another baseball player that weighs 300 pounds.

    Walter Young and his 322 pound, 38.2 BMI might give ol' Broxton a run for his money.

    Adam Dunn is probably close to 300. Sabathia too.

    This is what 300 pounds of muscle looks like. When he finishes pitching they have to run out and measure the mound to make sure it is still the proper height.
    A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.

    Personally, I think their throwback uniforms MUCH better accentuated the chiseled pieces of humanity that is/was Hot Coffee.

    1 homer in 32 innings is really nice though. FIP at 3.39 isn't bad either.

    Broxton > Bray

    It's that simple. We are a better team not needing Bray to flail out there. Masset may return soon also.

    Broxton, Arredondo, Masset, LeCure, Marshall, Chapman, Ondrusek, Simon

    This bullpen consists of beasts. Realize, this is all without Madsen!!!

    I think that in a year or two, one of these guys - Frazier, Dorn, Valaika, Cumberland, Stubbs - will be ready to replace Dunn. They won't hit as many home runs as Dunn, but they should have similar OPS. - 757690, July 22, 2008

    Alonso will be playing 1B for the REDS and batting 4th one year from today. - Kingspoint, July 9, 2009
