    If this deal goes down, it's another low risk deal that could potentially help the big club. Reitsma isn't going to command a high salary and could add to the depth of the bullpen. I like it.

    If his elbow passes muster it's not a bad risk. I wonder how much velocity he'll have left though?

    I like the changeup either way, as long as it isn't Chris Hammond style.

    Pass.

    My friends down in Atlanta despised Chris, he was considered their Eric Milton. He earned the nickname "gas can" from call-in shows, which is a really bad nickname for a relief pitcher.

    i'll wait until I see the offer before I decide on if I would like it. Anything other than a minor league deal is a waste of money until he proves he can still pitch at a major league level.

    More dumpster crabbing. I always liked Reitsma, but his arm may be gone.

    He drove Atlanta fans (both of them) crazy.

    I'll always like him for that.

    Ahhhh memories of Hector Carrasco. He was affectionately known as "Sunoco". Always pouring gas on the fire.
    It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...

    He threw up ERA of
    4.07 2004
    3.93 2005
    8.68 2006

    Last year was an injury riddled failure, but the previous seasons look fine to me. If the guy can pass a physical, what is there to hurt in a 500k contract for 1 year. Better than what we threw out there last year for the most part if healthy.

    Maybe the #5 starter will be mix and matching of relievers...I think WK has been scarred for life in his first gig as a GM. How many bullpen arms are needed? Personally, I'd rather have Reitsma than spending $5 million on Mercker or Weathers. Depending on the $, of course.

    pass, this team has enough average to below average middle relievers.

    We need to get Catch22 in here to give us some insight on Chris' condition.
