    I've never been a fan of the all or nothing type of hitters. They seem to hit a lot of HRs on "so what situations"…tape measure shots in a 12-2 loss. In a tight game against a good pitcher bearing down, they usually fail.

    Key stat for me is always how many doubles does a guy hit. He doesn't get all that many, strikes out a ton and hits for a low average. What, exactly, does anyone see in this guy????

    X a billion.
    "Mr. Martin Tanner, Baritone, of Dayton, Ohio made his Town Hall debut last night. He came well prepared, but unfortunately his presentation was not up to contemporary professional standards. His voice lacks the range of tonal color necessary to make it consistently interesting. Full time consideration of another endeavor might be in order."

    If Reynolds can hit .230 or better and walk 70-80 times, which he would certainly do in the 5 spot of our lineup, his OBP would be a very respectable .330 or better. People look at the average and the strikeouts, but people need to consider that he gets on base a lot because he walks a lot and has a TON of power. In his career he's struck out 32% of the time, but walked 12% of the time. 18% of his flyballs have been homeruns, and he flies out more than he grounds out. He's also not nearly as slow as Duda, Reynolds has stolen 24 bases in a season before, and he's only 29, same age as Wright. Reynolds also has abetter arm than Duda.


    IDK why people are pissed about that, in an average season for Reynolds he's probably 10 times as valuable as Duda was to us last year.

    Reynolds averages .0116 War/game, and about 1.7 War/season, including 2 season where he didn't play in a combined 78 games, while Duda averages -.16666667 war/seasons and -.002 War/game.

    Reynolds is by no mean gonna be a good defensive outfielder, but in comparison to Duda he'll look like a gold glover with more speed and a better arm.

    This signing would eb a no brainer.
    The thing with Duda is that you hope he will get better. As for me I'm done hoping but call me cynical.

    Or Call Me Maybe. I dunno. They just don't write em the way they used to.

    Reynolds stinks, it's that simple.
