UP UP AND AWAY! Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

For real though, they're gonna work w/ the sheriff to lighten up his swing, which will result in more contact and less strikeouts. I'm expecting his OPS to go up quite a bit.

I say Reynolds walks the walk. Drops the Ks and look out! That HR is SD was a f-ing amazing display. Wasn't it the second longest ever in PetCo?

Up!!!

Down, I fear. I think he has some work to do to reduce the k rate, and his babip is way too high to sustain. I hope I am wrong with him, because if I am wrong, he is going to be something else...

Absolutely shocked. More "no's" then "yes's"?

I think the soph slump combined with the atrocious OBP will keep it down. But the slugging will be fun to watch...

I sure hope he drops the Ks. I have seen just about enough Ks outta Dbacks 3rd basemen (Glaus/Tracy/Tracy-Reynolds).

Looks like overall the confidence level in Reynolds to reduce is K's and up his contact rate without losing any power is pretty high.

Such an interesting and intriguing player. I sure wish we had the debates from the original board before it got nuked. There was a GREAT thready in there on Reynolds and some "strenuous" debates between Dylan and I on Reynolds potential. As of right now...it looks like I'm winning that debate....but this story isn't over yet.

Tommy Hicks / Mobile Press-Register this morning wrote:
Usually, the winter months provide a time for baseball players to relax.

But former Mobile BayBears third baseman Mark Reynolds isn't resting. He's working as hard right now as he did during the past season when he started his season at Hank Aaron Stadium and ended it as a strong contributing member of the Arizona Diamondbacks.

His reasoning is simple: take nothing for granted.

Spending his offseason in Mobile, he aims to have himself in peak physical condition when he arrives in Tucson, Ariz., for spring training with the Diamondbacks.

Are you suggesting they should bring back Tony Clark?

Or maybe Alex Cabrera and Jason Grimsley.

Gonzo mighta just been a heavy Andro user. Figure anybody that put up over 50 HR's post-'95 woulda been high profile and somebody woulda squeeled. Did the Mitchell report list Brady Anderson?

John Sickels just did a retro-prospect review of Reynolds on his website and he's predicting a .776 OPS
http://www.minorleagueball.com/story/2008/2/12/15490/7340

Quote:

Projections for 2008 vary:

Ron Shandler: .260/.325/.467
Bill James: .294/.367/.537
ZIPS: .274/.339/.481

Shandler is the pessimist, James the optimist, ZIPS in the middle. I'm on Shandler's side and even a bit lower at .258/.321/.455, as I think the pitchers are going to adjust to him this year and cut out some of his batting average and OBP, though he'll crush enough mistakes to keep the SLG respectable.

Yeah, that was a funny comment. Personally, I'm fairly optimistic with regards to Mark. He's still young and skipped AAA so slumps in 2007 was expected but I believe he has shown that he could make adjustments and the power is not a Chase mirage.

though Reynolds should be slightly better and has an advantage in that he's already established in the majors at age 23 and Bellhorn didn't break through until he was 27.
Rolling Eyes What a tool.

Count me in the Reynolds' camp. He's gonna slay. Or I'll be my own daddy.

As I posted in the Sickels thread, long term, Dean Palmer is probably a pretty good potential comp for Reynolds.

I've heard Dean before. I agree w/ that comp, except I think Sheriff won't SO as much, and might have a tad higher avg. (stress the might.)
