    Mets claim Ryan Reid off waivers

    The Mets have claimed RHP Ryan Reid off waivers from the Pirates (Mets).

    Reid, a relief pitcher, appeared in seven games for the Pirates last season, making his major league debut in the process. The 28-year-old posted a 1.64 ERA and 1.091 WHIP in 11 innings, including one save. In Triple-A, Reid posted a 2.73 ERA and 1.197 WHIP over 59 1/3 innings last year.

    In the minors, appearing in over 300 games, Reid has a 3.87 ERA and 1.353 WHIP, including 543 minor league strikeouts.

    Reid was drafted by Tampa in 2006 and was with the organization until 2012, when he signed with the Pirates. He was designated for assignment by Pittsburgh on December 13.

    Sure, why not? I'm a big believer in building a bullpen by stockpiling arms and seeing who sticks.

    Really like his addition of Ryan Reid. Scott Rice part deux. He's going to be our ROOGY. Sick GB numbers overall.

    GB just started spiking last two seasons too. Must have added a nice sinker at age 27. I like to see that in older guys.

    It's always good to get those guys with two first names. You can never have too many of 'em.

    Ryan Reid everyone:

    He's smallish, but he's athletic and certainly has sink/run on his fastball.

    I hope he's better than Greg Burke.

    If this guy is so good why was he let go by the Pirates?

    I didn't realize that the pitching rich Pirates let go of a serious asset. Some are already talking him up as a savior.

    So, why was he put on waivers?

    Any waver wire pickup is a crap shoot. Like a Horn Bet on a crap table.

    Pirates roster is at 40 players. He was DFA'd to make room for players the Pirates added. It's definitely a crap shoot, but the Mets roster was at 37 (I think). No harm, no foul. You never know with relievers. Throw 'em against a wall and see which ones stick.
    "The 90 wins is about challenge. It's about changing the conversation. It's about framing questions for ourselves as to how we get there. So I stand by the notion that we need to get better, and in doing so we need to set concrete goals for ourselves so that we have sort of specific conversations among ourselves about how we're going to get there." -- Mr. Alderson

    I hope he's half as good as Neil Allen.
