may, I repeat MAY, have potential. pretty good arm, needs to learn how to pitch a bit better though. looks like wally whitehurst I think

He may have potential, but he can't keep the ball off the middle of the plate. Major leaguers are hitting rockets off of Riggan right now. I just know that if he develops as a decent reliever, it won't be in a Mets uniform.

Nice pitching to Brian Jordan last Sunday, Jerrod. I don't necessarily blame you because Bobby Valentine never should have trusted that game to a AAA pitcher, but you did throw the flattest slider I've ever seen to Jordan. Nice job.

Youve heard of lefty specialists?? Well, the Mets have invented a new one..the giving-up-a-game-winning homer specialist..three appearances, three game winning homers...way to go, Jerrod!

They say Bobby Valentine loves Riggan. I just don't see it. He has a slightly above average fastball (91 to 94) that doesn't seem to have much movement. And he has a decent but not overwhelming slider that breaks on one plane. Riggan doesn't spot the ball real well, and he has a terrible habit of hanging that slider where it comes in belt high and floats like a beach ball. Those are the pitches that get hit out of the park by the likes of Brian Jordan.

I actually heard some people say that Riggan should be a closer. What a joke. He's nothing more than an average middle relief guy.

I'm sorry to see Riggan go. I thought the Mets should have held on to him. Alomar will definately help the Mets out big time, but they could have unloaded someone else, I think.

I always had high hopes for this guy having seen his minor league stats which were pretty impressive. He was just OK with the Mets although I still think he has potential. But to get Robbie Alomar I can't see holding firm on not letting go of Riggan. Riggan is the kind of guy who could go either way. I wish him well.

I watched Riggan pitch for the Indians against the Yankees yesterday afternoon. My god, is he terrible. I was reminded of that floating slider he throws that gets hit way out of the park. Giambi crushed him, and a couple of days ago, Posada hit a grand slam off him. Putrid, just putrid.

His debut in 2000 was a fluke.

In late August, the Mets wanted to call up Eric Cammack, but he was stuck in Norfolk because of bad weather, and they couldn't get him in, so they added Riggan to the roster from Binghamton.

The Mets were blown out by Houston that night, Riggan pitched two innings, and was sent down the next day in favor of Cammack, and I don't believe they recalled Riggan again in September.

Thus Riggan got a World Series share - because of the bad weather that held Cammack back one day.

Watch out! He's back in the system! Didn't pan out in Japan! I just read the Mets picked him up again and he's down in St.Lucie getting his arm strength built up. Is the pen really that bad, or is he filling up a roster spot due to injury! Time will tell!

Met Jerrod when he played for Binghamton 2 years ago and they came to play the Fisher Cats in NH. Was a real nice guy for someone who was taking his last real shot at a comeback. Got his, Mike Jacobs and Lastings Milledge's autographs that day.

I don't care what anyone says about Riggan - he is an excellent coach! He is awesome to play for!
