BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2010 Instead of waiting for everything to go wrong and then getting hurt, Redding decided to start the season on the DL due to back and shoulder soreness that lingered throughout the spring. Joining the club in May, Redding made a nearly even number of appearances as both a starter and reliever, proving to be utterly mediocre in either role. His stuff is sub-standard, with an 88-90 mph fastball to go along with a second-rate slider and changeup. Though he gave the Mets 120 much-needed innings, the pitching-starved club wasted little time in non-tendering him to and let him look elsewhere for work.
2009 Redding resurrected his career in Washington—all hail pitching coach Randy St. Claire—with a popularity around DC that belies his performance. Maybe it's because any performance at all was so completely unexpected, or that he did lead the team in starts and wins, or that he represents an Average Pitcher so well (actually, he's about one tick below average, straight across the board). Whatever it was, the laid-back Nationals' fans weren't happy with the financial decision to non-tender Redding rather than let him go through arbitration. They'll still get to see plenty of him, as he joined the Mets on a one-year $2.25 million contract and figures to take a spot at the rear end of the rotation.
2008 Redding is a nice comeback story. Having worn out his welcome with three organizations in less than two years, he spent all of 2006 pitching for the greater glory of the Triple-A Charlotte Knights. The Nats' open casting call last year made for a can't-miss opportunity, and as the team reached almost 100 percent turnover in its rotation by midseason, Redding's number came up. He delivered eight quality starts in his first 15 after his July call-up, but got handled roughly on his second pass around the league. His relative durability has him solidly in the mix this spring as both Hill and Patterson work their way back from injury, but he allows far too many hard-hit liners to make anyone comfortable, which is a symptom of his failure to fool many hitters much of the time.
2007 Yes, this is the same old Tim Redding, and he`s still trucking along with the same old level of performance, right along the major league fringe. The Nationals signed him in November, which is perhaps the best possible destination for him: not only does the nation`s capital desperately need a few good arms, but RFK Stadium should help counteract his problems with the home run ball. Don`t be surprised if he wins a rotation slot in camp.
2005 The Astros did well to keep the long-time BP favorite in the rotation following a season in which he pitched well but received terrible run support. He didn't reward that faith, losing his rotation spot in July and pitching poorly out of the bullpen. At 26, with a career ERA of 4.75 and a dwindling strikeout rate, it may be time to recant our endorsement and recognize that he's roster filler. He'll fight for a job in March.
2003 Redding fluctuates between dominant and dreadful, with little time in between. All of his problems stem from inconsistent command of a darting, mid-90s fastball. It’s unclear if his lack of a September recall was due to rotator cuff tendonitis or because the organization has grown frustrated with him. Redding’s fly-ball tendencies, Minute Maid Park, and the Astros’ lumbering outfielders are a poor combination. He could blossom with a change of scenery, although Hunsicker probably wouldn’t get equal value in return.
2002 Redding can’t quite send his seven fielders to the dugout, but he induces so few ground-ball outs that he could probably get by with a catcher and three outfielders. He throws in the mid-90s, mixing in a good slider and a curve that frightens many hitters. Unfortunately, he lacks anything like an effective change-up, a flaw that ought to make him a great candidate for relief work until he masters something off-speed. He’ll get a look as the fifth starter, depending on how healthy Carlos Hernandez is and how much Dave Mlicki the Astros can stand.
2001 Tim Redding was a draft-and-follow in 1997, a year after the Astros picked up Oswalt the same way. The Astros draft-and-follow as good as anyone in the business, which is important because most of their top draft picks are either projects or signability picks. Redding vaulted into prospect status after he was moved to the bullpen in mid-1999, though the Astros made the unconventional move of putting him back in the rotation in 2000. He was phenomenal, finishing third in the minors with 192 strikeouts. His control needs work, and he probably needs another year in the minors, which the Astros will happily give him. He should be on all the prospect lists for 2002.

BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2009-09-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Even if every last injured Met came back 100% healthy come Spring Training, they'd win no more than 85 games . . . right?
(dianagramr from NYC)
Oh I don't know about that. I mean entering this year I had them ahead of the Phillies and if their stars didn't get hurt I'd have to imagine we would be right where we were in 2007 and 2008 with both of these teams. Losing Alex Cora and Tim Redding isn't a big deal. Losing Reyes, Delgado, Beltran, Johan, and Wright for extended periods is a massive deal. I can't even imagine what it would be like to lose Utley, Howard, Rollins, Victorino and Hamels for half of a season. (Eric Seidman)
2009-06-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)So I'm going to the Mets game on Thursday and I don't think I own a jersey of a single healthy current player, so guess I will be the guy in the stands in the Edgardo Alfonzo jersey. I don't really have a question.
(J.P. from Hartford)
I'm not the type that wears living player jerseys (I do have a Casey Stengel #37 T-shirt), but if I were, I would think that a David Wright garment would be worth having. Given that he's only 26, it should be good for another ten years... I don't suppose you can get an Alex Cora model, can you? Tim Redding?

I do want to get an Ebbets Field Flannel 1948 Oakland Oaks jersey (Casey again, this time #1), but those suckers are pricey! I just can't bring myself to spend almost $200 on a shirt, even if I think said shirt would dramatically elevate my mood whenever I wore it. (Steven Goldman)
2009-05-18 14:00:00 (link to chat)Should the Mets just have let John Niese make starts for a while no matter the outcome. I mean he's got to take lumps at the big league level and learn from it at some point and it's not like Tim Redding isn't going to get pounded anyway.
(Glenn from NJ)
I guess since I'm one of those people who doesn't think Niese might grow up to be much more than a fifth starter who might grow up to be a fourth starter, and Redding's already that guy, and given the stakes the Mets are playing for, sticking with Redding isn't all that unreasonable. The Mets' fifth starter isn't the problem. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-02-10 14:00:00 (link to chat)Will we look back on 2009 as a lost opportunity for the Mets? Speaking specifically about not picking up another corner OF and apparently thinking that signing Tim Redding and Freddy Garcia's corpse is improving the rotation.
(Jason from NY)
It would complete the trilogy of lost opportunities, wouldn't it? Another one would pretty much make the Mets something like the new Red Sox in terms of historic fold-ups and inflicted agony in a major metropolitan area, no? I'm not busted up over Redding or Garcia--like Jay Jaffe pointed out earlier in his column today, that's not bad for a fifth starter selection--I'm more concerned that Oliver Perez and John Maine aren't consistent enough to flesh out the front four. Add in the faith in Church, the overvaluing of Snyder, going high on Luis Castillo... there's plenty to regret, but Omar's taste in fifth starters wouldn't be one of them. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-01-17 14:00:00 (link to chat)Other than Tyler Clippard, the Nationals have not added any starting pitchers this off-season. With an additional year on the youngsters, do you think the Nats starting pitchers will be better or worse than last year?
(Kevin from Fairfax VA)
I expect Tim Redding to take a beating with the reality stick, but if they get more than 40 starts combined out of John Patterson and Shawn Hill, this will definitely be a better unit than last year's. (Christina Kahrl)
