Pick up Ryan Speier!

The Rockies have DFA'ed Ryan Speier, a solid submarining RHRP with a 3.99 career ERA (and 3.95 career FIP). Speier would be an excellent acquisition for the Nats in my opinion, as he has put up respectable numbers since 2005 with the Rockies. His K rates suck, but he keeps the ball on the ground and gets guys out that way. But, most importantly, he went to West Springfield HS and Radford University. Throw the local kid a bone, especially since it would be an improvement to the bullpen as is. Now if only the Nats could bring in fellow WSHS grad Joe Saunders as well...
