DateQuestionAnswer
2017-07-25 20:00:00 (link to chat)What would it take from the Dodgers to get Addison Reed? What about the Brewers?
(Sam from NY)
Not sure but the White Sox just got a top 20 prospect for Anthony Swarzak so I would think they could get similar or better even if Reed is just a rental.
-Nathan (Emmett Rosenbaum & Nathan Graham)
2017-07-19 17:00:00 (link to chat)Please tell me that there's no truth in the Asdrubal to the Sox rumors from earlier today. Please? Like, maybe to take on his contract while sending Addison Reed over? Because that's not the kind of player that the Sox need here.
(Hector from Boston)
He'd be a low-cost option, and I don't hate that at all. But I guess it wouldn't be the best guy they could get, since there's still a sizable amount of intriguing 3B the Red Sox could inquire on, like Nick Castellanos and Adrian Beltre. I'd like Reed, but I'm whatever on Asdrubal. If they've gotten to that point, I'd expect Devers to get a cup of coffee pretty soon. (Brett Cowett)
2017-06-27 20:00:00 (link to chat)Is Dustin Fowler a fair return for Addison Reed or is that unrealistic? Shouldn't he net a similar return as Melancon? Could you see the Mets packaging Reed/Duda in a deal with NYY?
(AI from BK)
We've got multiple Dustin Fowler to the Mets questions even. The Melancon trade is kind of a weird one because they traded him for another MLB reliever, but Dustin Fowler is the type of fringe top 100 prospect I expect Reed to go for. And Duda makes sense too, of course.

At the same time, when was the last time the Mets and Yankees made a substantial trade? Armando Benitez? (Jarrett Seidler)
2017-05-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)if your brian cashman what is your next move? trade OF prospect for Yu Darvish? trade Gardner to open up OF spot for Frazier or Fowler? etc.
(a.j. from las vegas)
I don't think they need to do anything, honestly. There isn't anything crazy unsustainable here (well, maybe Aaron Hicks, although I always believed in Aaron Hicks). Think you can shore up around the edges come July without going whole hog buy. Depending on Chapman's shoulder you may need to poke around for an Addison Reed or Nick Vincent or Ryan Madson, but those guys are always available. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2016-09-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)At the 2015 trade deadline, Diamondbacks traded Addison Reed to the Mets for 2 fringe prospects. Looking back, if teams would have known how valuable Reed would have been for the rest of 2015, 2016 (and hopefully 2017), what kind of prospect package would it have taken to get him?
(Earl from Richmond)
My only response to that is it seems the reliever market got more expensive this deadline, didn't it? (Harry Pavlidis)
2015-10-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is the Royals hitting against 95+ MPH pitches the most over talked about stat coming into this series?
(Greg from NYC )
Probably by default, yes. Look, it's a good offense, they probably hit a wide variety of pitches well, because good offenses do. That said, I think the specifics of their offensive approach may give the Mets starters fits at times. Even if they don't get big innings, they might force Collins to go to guys like Hansel Robles and Addison Reed early and more often than he'd like. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2015-04-29 20:00:00 (link to chat)Addison Reed...Hold, Sell, or Drop?
(Peter from Delaware)
Until he's no longer the closer, hold. (Bret Sayre)
2014-07-03 19:00:00 (link to chat)Enjoying the chat, thanks. Q. National Leaguer with one or fewer saves who is mostly likely to have seven by the end of the year?
(gerrybraun from san diego)
Vic Black, Santiago Casilla, Alex Torres, Brad Ziegler. And I like Addison Reed but I can see them pulling the plug for a bit. (Mauricio Rubio)
2014-05-15 20:00:00 (link to chat)What are your thoughts on Nate Eovaldi? Do you think he could become an ace one day? Also, what's your take on Addison Reed's closing gig? Do you think he'll lose his job anytime soon?
(David from Toronto)
Not an ace, but he could become a solid second starter if the progression is real. Check out Craig's post on Eovaldi yesterday for more: http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=23568. There's research and charts and everything. (Bret Sayre)
2013-04-16 20:00:00 (link to chat)How do I value Addison Reed if I just started a dynasty rebuild? I know closers should be the first thing to go in a rebuild, but I can't help but believe he's relatively stable and likely to help me when I compete again in 2-3 years. Thanks
(JoeTinker from Chicago)
Here is a list of all closers who recorded 25 or more saves in 2010: Brian Wilson (48), Heath Bell (47), Rafael Soriano (45), Joakim Soria (43), Matt Capps (42), Neftali Feliz (40), Francisco Cordero (40), Carlos Marmol (38), Billy Wagner (37), Jonathan Papelbon (37), Kevin Gregg (37), Mariano Rivera (33), David Aardsma (31), Juan Oviedo (30), Bobby Jenks (27), Ryan Franklin (27), Brad Lidge (27), Jose Valverde (26), Francisco Rodriguez (25) and Andrew Bailey (25). (Bret Sayre)
2013-02-27 20:00:00 (link to chat)In my AL-only Dynasty Lg, I acquired Mike Moustakas, Addison Reed, Byron Buxton and the 6th overall pick for Justin Verlander & my 10th, 11th and 12th round picks. Was this a good pick-up, considering that I have Matt Moore, Yu Darvish, Derek Holland and Tommy Milone as my top starters
(jlarsen from Chicago)
Hard to say considering I don't know what those picks would typically fetch in your league. That seems like a lot to give up since it's an AL-only. Your staff looks deep, but this isn't a mixed. I do like Buxton a lot, but I don't like the idea of giving up Verlander without getting a top hitter back. I have been burned in the past dealing an ace pitcher for a package of players rather than one big hitter in return. (Mike Gianella)
2013-02-15 12:00:00 (link to chat)Should I be really nervous with Chris Perez and Addison Reed as my incumbent closers? thanks! (Target Wilhelmsen instead?)
(Chin Music from Vancouver)
I like Reed more than Perez and would rather have Wilhelmesen than Perez (Jason Collette)
2013-02-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)Does Addison Reed improve on last year? What's his upside for this year?
(Mike from Rhode Island)
I'm not sure there's much room for him to improve in 2013. I mean, he'll likely get more saves now that he's the official closer, but I'd expect his peripherals to stay the same. His 2012 BABIP was a little high, so maybe he shows some improvement in hits/runs/ERA. (Ian Miller)
2012-11-15 14:00:00 (link to chat)Please rank the following keepers (deep league so don't be alarmed by inflation, and saves are NOT available on the waiver so most closers are kept): Ian Desmond ($15), Addison Reed ($8), Yovani Gallardo ($21), Drew Storen ($8)
(eliyahu from DC)
Tough without knowing league parameters and exactly what inflation is like, but probably Desmond, Storen, Reed, Gallardo. (Derek Carty)
2012-07-03 14:00:00 (link to chat)Which closer do you take for 2013-2015, Huston Street or Addison Reed? Is it close?
(Luther from Toronto)
Yes, it's close. I'll take Street, although it's unclear where he'll be pitching next year, much less next month. That said, Reed is a young, largely unproven (albeit talented), flyball pitcher in a hitter's park, so he's no sure thing either. (Derek Carty)
2012-03-14 13:30:00 (link to chat)Who will be the Astros' All-Star? A's? White Sox?
(Eric Sogard from Surprise)
This is a fun question, and a hard one. Mike Fast can't qualify, right? I'll go out on a limb (it's hard to pick an Astro All-Star without going out on a limb) and guess Jed Lowrie stays healthy for a half season and earns a spot. For the A's and White Sox, I'll go with relievers: Grant Balfour and Addison Reed. (Ben Lindbergh)
2012-03-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)Derek, Was it wise to draft Addison Reed with the last pick in my 5x5 and H2H league (I drafted two solid closers earlier in both drafts)? Will Reed start the season in the majors or, should I have taken a wait-and-see approach?
(JKries from Chicago)
Oh, he should start the season in the majors, but Matt Thornton appears to have the inside track on the closing gig. If it's a deep league he's fine to roster, especially with the last pick, but if we're looking at a 12-team mixed league and there are other closers on the wire, you may be able to do better than Reed. (Derek Carty)
2012-02-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)If Thornton comes up with the yips again this spring, does CHW go straight to Addison Reed or will Jesse Crain get a shot?
(PepeShady from StPaul)
I thought it was reasonably well established that what Thornton went through last year wasn't "the yips" but an unsuccessful attempt to establish his changeup.

If I'm a team in rebuilding mode, as the Sox should be (but can't truly be given the $82 million owed to Alex Rios and Adam Dunn), I'd probably churn closers if possible, as the Sox did by flipping Sergio Santos. Get the increasingly expensive Thornton to about 20 saves and flip him, then turn to Crain and do the same. By then, Reed will have more than gotten his feet wet in the majors and will be well-prepared to do the job. (Jay Jaffe)
2012-02-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)How quickly does Addison Reed get the closer gig for the Sox, mid-May?
(Tony from Chicago's Southside)
If Matt Thornton starts the year with the job, as Ventura has suggested, the best money is on 2013. Obviously it could happen sooner than that--closers lose their jobs every year--but a quality pitcher starting the year with the closer's role should be expected to keep it for the majority of the season. Of course Ventura is a huge wild card being a first-time manager with zero coaching experience, but I wouldn't bet on Reed getting it by mid-May. The best bets for him are either right out of the gate in April or, failing that, April of 2013. (Derek Carty)
