LOL, people still use ERA. That's adorable!

Reed has a 1.7 WAR, 46th best of all 336 pitchers who have thrown a pitch in the AL and 13th best in the league for relievers...

1) Uehara, Boston - 3.3 WAR
2) Nathan, Texas - 2.7
3) Crain, Sox/Rays - 2.4
4) Robertson, NYY - 2.3
5) Smyly, Detroit - 2.2
6) Holland, Kansas City - 2.2
7) Medina, Seattle - 2.1
8) Cotts, Texas - 2.1
9) Benoit, Detroit - 2.1
10) Torres, Tampa Bay - 1.9
11) Rivera, NYY - 1.9
12) Cook, Oakland - 1.8
13) Reed, Sox - 1.7

By my count, there's only 2 names on that list ahead of Reed who have been closers for the full season and, I think 2 others who have done it at some point in the year.
