I just want to start by saying I like Mark Reynolds, I really do.  I liked the move when Andy MacPhail brought him to the Orioles from  the Arizona  Diamondbacks in the offseason.  I said before the season began I thought that Reynolds would hit 40 home runs in Baltimore.  I thought he’d strike out a TON but would still hit a lot of bombs.  The season started off really slow with the bat, even for his standards.  That part of his game has come around a bit.  He’s hitting around .220 with a team leading 13 home runs.  His defense though?  Ugh!!  Once again last night, Reynolds booted a potential double play ball against the Pittsburgh Pirates and a close game became a laugher.  I can deal with the low batting average and the strikeouts, but the defense HAS to get better!
