Ryan Reid Pirates

An Early Present From Santa

No, I'm not being sarcastic here. The Mets claimed Ryan Reid off waivers from the Pirates. Here's what Adam Rubin says about him:

"Reid's fastball averaged 91.9 mph during his big-league activity. He also possesses a slider and a rarely used changeup."

Wait a second, a bullpen arm that can throw over 90 consistently? And he's under 30 years old? I would have settled for "younger than Atchison". But Ryan Reid is 28!

(Excuse me while I run down the block … )

Merry Christmas, movie house! Merry Christmas, Emporium! Merry Christmas, you wonderful old Building and Loan! Merry Christmas Mr. Wilpon!!!

About metstradamus

I've been a Mets fan since 1976. The 1988 NLCS still bothers me infinitely more than it should. I also write about hockey for Puck Drunk Love. I've also been referred to as "Mr. Testosterone", and "this clown". We'll always have 2015.
