"You do live in a dream world. It is your dream of being a MLB ballplayer and I will let it go at that."
"He did get a walk, he did score, he actually helped in the WIN column but you do not seem to get past the K's which we knew going into the season he would have. I will let you brow beat him as long as you brow beat the other members of the team that do not perform as well as you can."
I have no dream of being a major league baseball player. I played enough years of little league to know I would never be a good baseball player. But either will Mark Reynolds. I could have stood up there like him and not hit a single pitch all night. It is not like he fouled off 10 pitches and then got a walk. Pitchers don't throw strikes to mark reynolds because they don't have to. Most likely he will swing at the pitch in the dirt.
to be fair - Reynolds has been holding his own at 1B and raking vs lefty pitching. The past 2 games his being on base with a walk and a double, before getting knocked in by Teagarden and Markakis respectively, proved to be the winning runs of both games. Way to go Mark - and thx for helping the team win. I even get the feeling his bat is warming up a bit.
There, i said positive true things about Mr. Reynolds and no longer wish to jetpuke on his cleats from afar. I bet he re-signs here in the winter for much less than he currently makes and stays at 1B.
"Like I told my last wife, I said, "Honey, I never drive faster than I can see. Besides it's all in the reflexes."
"Just remember what old Jack Burton does when the earth quakes, the poison arrows fall from the sky, and the pillars of Heaven shake. Yeah, Jack Burton just looks that big old storm right in the eye and says, "Give me your best shot. I can take it."
Anyone with the word 'yanks' in his name can't be all good.
