However, according to Paul Hoynes, the Indians will be just fine going into next season and will be a contender again.

Reds decline option on Ryan Ludwick

The Cincinnati Reds have declined the 2015 option on outfielder Ryan Ludwick. Ludwick, 36, would have made $9 million had the option been picked up. Given that the Reds owe him $4.5 million as part of the buyout the team must feel the 36-year-old has nothing left to contribute. A big 2012 campaign landed him a two-year deal worth $18 million from the Reds. After playing in just...
