    Mets designate Standridge for assignment

    http://blogs.nydailynews.com/mets/ar...d_for_assi.php

    The Mets designated reliever Jason Standridge for assignment to clear a 40-man roster spot. Standridge was claimed off waivers from the Reds. He could still remain with the organization as a non-roster invitee to spring training if he clears.
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    Might as well toss his name into the hat for potential guys to be the #5 starter.

    That list has to be at least 48 guys deep by now.

    I'd certainly be in favor of signing him to a minor league contract. He'd be at least as good a bet as a number of the guys we signed. He still throws hard.

    Do we have room on the 40 man?

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Been there, done that.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Definition of replacement level.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
