He's not that old but he's also not that good. Bad fielder and a strikeout machine.
It's April. Not worried at all.
And besides, we have a winning record still. Just think when he heats up the Orioles will really be cookin'!
Ultimately though, if he can do what he did last year, I'll take it.
Here's Reynolds comparison to this time last year:
6 for 48
11 for 49
Looks like he got off to a slow start too last year. Again. I'm not worried.
It could simply be a slow start (although clearly worse than last years slow start) or it could be an early indicator of a season that won't measure up to last years. It's a little early to say either way. He's currently sure is not doing much to help the team though.
Believe it or not, through age 27, Mark Reynolds compares more favorably with Dean Palmer, Mike Schmidt and Matt Williams than he does Dave Kingman.
Once again, proving that extrapolating from a small sample size (5 seasons for Reynolds) is ridiculous.
And BTW....it Concepcion
I think I saw one of his flicks
Reynolds is a DH who can fill in at 3rd and 1st. He’ll hit 30+ home runs, strike out 200+ times and get 75+ walks. There’s nothing wrong with a career .808 OPS. If used correctly, DH , once a week at 3rd and 1st he could be bonus to the team.
Betemit should be penciled in at 3B. he saved that game in the Chicago series with a tough pick and split second throw that Reynolds would never have made. the guy is not a good infielder. I don't even want to see him at 1B. there's just no reason to put someone with hands of stone at a defensive position when your DH slot is open for him. Betemit and Davis should be the corner infielders.
