    Edit: So Cot's, where bref gets their info apparently, says mutual option.
    Mutual $5MM option for 2013. Seems like a no-brainer the Reds pick it up, question is if Ludwick wants more from us and if he wants to test the free agent waters. He's given all indications that he loves 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."

    My plan is to enjoy a few cigars after we win the World Series.

    I'm sure he'll decline that option. They'll try to negotiate a longer deal.

    But Lud shouldn't cost a fortune. With Votto and Bruce the Reds don't need a big name highly expensive clean up hitter, a guy like Ludwick (2012 version) seems just fine. I hope they sign him.
