    When do we start talking about re-signing Ludwick

    Right now, I suppose.



    This guy was the best bargain signing of the offseason at one-year, $2.5 million. I say he needs a two-year deal in the $11 million range to stay through 2014. Let's do it.

    Gotta figure the mutual option is moot.

    He'll likely be looking for some serious dough if this continues.

    It'll be his last chance at a big payday, and he may look to cash in.

    If he wants major cash, I'd let him get it somewhere else and trade for Upton or a lefty-hitting LF.

    And Fay just tweeted he doesn't think Ludwick would decline the option.

    Oh my.

    I wouldn't be too surprised. Ludwick has said numerous times how happy he is to be playing for the Reds.
    "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."

    a month in and I for one was ready to throw him out with the bath water....I really like the guy and his attitude(alot of Jonny Gomes with more production) and I hope he can keep producing but I wouldn't invest a ton in him until I'd exhausted all other options

    I think something could be worked out, but I bet he respectfully declines the option.

    Re: When do we start talking about re-signing Ludwick

    I just heard him say in an interview that he loves Cincinnati, he grew up pulling for this team. I'm really glad he is playing so well after a rocky start. I always cheer for players who are from the area, and that appear to love the team as much as I do.

    A lot of people should be eating crow based on some of the things that were said in the thread's about Ludwick. By the way . . .

    Bruce's OPS: .829
    Ludwick's OPS: .868

    I was meh on the signing, but I have to give credit where credit is due.

    Great signing by Walt. A+. I'm not sure he could have signed a better FA with the resources he has at his disposal.

    Trading away Edinson Volquez helped give the Reds the flexibility to make the signing happen.

    That's so 6 PM, camisa. He's now up to .884.

    Re: When do we start talking about re-signing Ludwick

    It's not so much that I was against Ludwick, I just didn't think he was a big enough upgrade. But I'm happy to have been proven wrong. I hope he continues hitting like a beast.

    Props to RedsManRick though. I remember him being one of the few who was a fan of the Ludwick signing from the beginning.
