Is Walt Jocketty done?
After signing Ryan Ludwick and avoiding arbitration with Homer Bailey, Paul Janish and Bill Bray the question that comes to many Cincinnati Reds minds now is; are the Reds done making moves this offseason? I would love to see them get another solid hitting infielder but after reading what Homer Bailey got for one year I am not sure if they have any more money to do it. Even if they don’t make any more moves this offseason, fans have to walk away very happy with what the Reds got. They needed a top of the rotation starter and they got it with Mat Latos. They needed bullpen help and got it with Sean Marshall. They then set their sights on a closer and got a great bargain with signing Ryan Madson. Walt Jocketty then went after a right-handed LF bat and got it with Ryan Ludwick.
No matter what some fans might think about their chances this season you can not deny the team is better now then they were last offseason and their chances to take first in National League Central should be a lot better.
