I have a suggestion, How about we trade him to the MFY for cash considerations and let him renew his hitting ability against us.
You know that by benching him and trying to replace him with someone from the minors that we would have to remove a player from the 25?
By doing as you suggest the orioles would have a three player bench. Teagarden, Chavez/Ford and Flaherty
3rd strikeout of the night. Nice one Reynolds!
At least he's consistent at one thing.
It seems that every at-bat/game (at least lately) where Reynolds' BA is about to drop below .200, he goes out and gets a couple of hits to raise it back up by like 4-6 points. Then he strikes out incessantly, and the whole process repeats itself.
Right now, he couldn't even hit a beachball with a 2x4
Good point - he has done a better job at getting walked...but who really should get the credit for that? Maybe his 'eye' hasn't truly improved.
I hope Mark turns it around and fast, because his September numbers at the plate are traditionally just as bad as his April numbers.
Saying that Reynolds makes me wanna jet-puke a steamy vile stream of puke onto his cleats at 1B from miles away would be an understatement. It may not be rational, but thats how I feel.
"Yes I would."
Great, another guy that loves it when an Oriole grounds into a double play but hates it when they strike out. I used to be one of those, until I realize that 2 outs were more than 1 out and when your team is up to bat, 1 out is better than 2. Darn math.
"According to a previous topic from a few days back, although he isn't living up to it this year, Reynolds still has potential."
Potential: [puh-ten-shuhl] adjective possible, as opposed to actual: the potential uses of nuclear energy.
Reynolds actually hit 44 homeruns in 2009. Not potentially, actually.
Actually: [ak-choo-uh-lee] adverbas an actual or existing fact; really.
English is a tough language, perhaps we should start speaking hanguk-mal (Korean) on here, or even zhong wen (Chinese). Just a thought.
