Mets re-sign Rick Reed for 3 years, $22
This was a move that the Mets basically had no
choice but to make. While they are losing out on all of their
other pitchers they needed somebody to fill a rotation spot.
Rick Reed is a quality pitcher and three years isn't too much,
especially not in the current market. A little over $7 million
per season is a bit steep for the right-hander but not as bad as
some of the other signings we've seen (Phillies) this
off-season. This was a necessary and a good move for the Mets.

Triple - A good move; plugs
a temporary hole or will help in the future.
Double - An average move;
team will get what they paid for.
Single - A head-scratcher;
could help, but we definitely don't see how.

fans "hey, we're trying..."
Double Play - A disaster;
will make fans angry just thinking about it.
