Post Jermy Reed

Alright, Jermy Reed will most likly be playing in the majors for the Mariners, most likely as a starter. What type of numbers is he capable of putting up? What about Moorse, is he expected to make a big leage impact. I have a feeling we are going to really really really really regreat trading the three, olivo, moorse, and reed but more so reed.

Reed should put up pretty decent numbers although I expect a slow start his first year. He'll take a bit of time to adjust to major league pitching.

What about his stollen base numbers and power. Will he be in center field of will he move over. I have a felling he would be a great leadoff hitter if we would have kept him. Possibly a number 2 hitter.

Both stolen bases and power take some time for new callups to adjust to. The timing of the major league game is faster than even the best AAA games. Power is definately overrated and the Mariners aren't in need of it, they need more high OBP guys.

Reed was on fire for the Mariners in his September call-up debut.

18 G 58 AB 11 R 23 H 4 2B 0 3B 0 HR 5 RBI 7 BB 4 K 3 SB 1 CS .397 AVG .470 OBP

Reed should be a very good OBP guy, but don't expect any sort of power numbers or stolen base numbers from him. His power, speed, and defense are very average. I think he'll be a solid #1 or #2 hitter...

A slightly better version of Mark Kotsay ... which isn't too bad.

Yeah I guess he'll beat out Ichiro for the lead off spot.

Ya know, out of any of the guys the Sox have traded away in the past year (except Olivo), Reed has to be the one I am upset with. I have been reading up on this guy for the past couple of years and I figured it was only a matter of time before he would be starting in the outfield, especially after this year when I think everyone had a good idea that Maggs wasn't coming back. This is probably stretching it a bit, but I looked at him as being the next Ted Williams...well close to it at least. I am glad we got Garcia out of the deal, lets just hope the "let's win it now and dish out some prospects" philosophy pays off for Kenny.

All because we wouldnt acknowledge our Pitching problems .....from 2000!!!!!!
We saved $$$$$$$$$$$$$ not signing a pitcher, but we "Paid" for it with Reed ......

I have a feeling that was because we had 4 or 5 of the top 100 prospects in baseball in 2000, all of which were pitchers.

No, but he and Ichiro will work well together batting 1-2.
