    I'm guessing 4 years, 38 million, with a 4th year buyout.

    Whoa, for real? That seems steep, but all along people have been saying that he's a hot commodity this year. It'd be nice to get him back and hopefully on a decent deal.

    Yeah that's what I'm thinking too, lot's of interest was indicated. He is young still. I'd prefer not to see something like that, though.

    Ken Rosenthal
    Sources: Broxton deal with #Reds expected to be for three years.
    I'm guessing 3/24: 6/8/10.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Is he worth more than Sean Marshall?

    If Broxton the Reds is the one signing the deal, I am on board. If Broxton the Royal is signing the deal, I will pass. Again though, it seems like the Reds are going to be willing to pay an absolute premium for a "closer", something small market teams should never consider.

    That seems like way too much for him. We're not far removed from the Cordero contract, and we know how that worked out.

    Jon Heyman is reporting at least 3 years. He says if it gets signed, the Reds will likely move Chapman to the rotation.

    Not sure how I feel about Broxton the longterm Reds closer.
    "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."

    Don't think I feel real good about paying out big cash for a closer. Just as well to try Hoover there I think.
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.

    I'd like to see that as well. Unfortunately, even if it happened, all it would take is a rocky outing or two before he was pulled and labeled as "non-closer material."
    How do we know he's not Mel Torme?
