Can Addison Reed lock down the 8th inning?

This is a bigger question than you may realize. For a playoff contending team, the primary setup man is a key cog in the team’s success. Many close games are won and lost in the pivotal 8th inning. If Addison Reed is up to the task, the Mets will have a strong and deep bullpen – perhaps the best they’ve had in 10 years. If he falters, Terry Collins will have to nimbly shift...

D-Backs Reliever Addison Reed Quits Smokeless Tobacco After Tony Gwynn’s Death

Addison Reed was the logical choice after two strong seasons in the program, and he handled the job well. The only thing Reed would have liked better was to have stayed in the bullpen.  No one seems wired for relief more than the new Diamondbacks...
