Just heard about this.
My first thought was, "Well, this confirms that Aroldis is a starter! Yay!"
Next thought was, "Hmmm...while I'm actually in favor of this, I just hope it's not for a lot of money...if it is, I'd rather see Hoover given a shot".
Still, I see this as a good thing. I really trust Walt and his decisions.
Prediction for 2013 if they sing Broxton....
I'll complain about 60 times about how dang slow Broxton works. Jeez, the guy drives me nuts.

Speaking of Myers...Royals in talks w/ Boston for Lester or TB for Shields.

Just talked to Broxton's agent. Wouldn't say it's a done deal. Said they had substantial talks. Could come together quickly. #reds
Here is a fangraphs take on this situation.
I complained about Cordero, nonstop it seemed. But in the end, he was pretty good, all things considered. And give him credit........sure he got paid, but he was willing to sign with the Reds and pitch in HR happy GABP.
After Chapman's historic season of closing, anyone else is doomed by the fans at trying to close games.
I see the starting rotation and bullpen taking a step backward next season. If it ain't broken, don't fix it. Unfortunately, the offense is slightly broken, and the Reds are going to sacrifice pitching to fix the offense.
