Addison Reed has only pitched 10 innings this season, but Diamondbacks fans have decided that’s all they need to see from their new closer.
The former White Sox star has struggled big time since moving to the National League, sporting a 7.20 ERA and two blown saves. His last save opportunity against the Nationals on Thursday was a special kind of disaster:
- Denard Span single
- Yunel Escobar single
- Jayson Werth walk
- Michael Taylor game-winning grand slam
Expectedly, that meltdown caused some D’backs fans to lose their shit and go the route of Reds fans and their handling of Kevin Gregg — Change.org. That’s right, D’backs fans, you too can petition to have Reed sent to AAA:
I suppose Change.org has usurped Craigslist as the go-to move for pissy fans.
