    Mark Reynolds at 1B??

    Was non tendered by the orioles.. Has an insane amount of power but strikes out alot and after a down year hitting .221 with 23 homers he could probably be had for decent money(probably 6-8 mill a year on a one or two year deal). Reynolds could be good insurance incase Napoli signs elsewhere. What do you guys think, ye or ne on Reynolds if Naps doesnt end up here.

    Righthanded slugger Mark Reynolds could provide a bookend with Will Middlebrooks at the corners of the Red Sox infield. Here are the 2013 Bill James Handbook projections for Reynolds and Middlebrooks:

    MR 622 PA, .231/.336/.463/.799

    WM 565 PA, .277/.316/.490/.806

    I like it. If you can live with the 200 strikeouts a year, you might also get 30 or 40 home runs.

    He does walk a bit too so it makes the strikeouts a little less painful. And the homerruns help you forget about the strikeouts also, Im almost certain if he plays 81 games in Fenway he will wear out that wall when he puts the bat on the ball.

    maybe working with a great hitter like papi and our new pitching coaches could do him good too. that power paired with the monster certainly is attractive.

    I certainly like Reynolds as much, if not more, than Napoli.  And if he will take less in dollar amount and fewer yhears, he is a better option for sure.  And I would take him over LaRoche as well, since LaRoche will cost a draft pick, hits from the left side, and does NOt have the same power potential.  And though Reynolds strikes out a lot, he draws his fair share of walks as well, enough to make his OBP respectalbe, even when his batting average is below average, as it was this season.

    Mark Reynolds has posted a .276/.364/.566/.929 line in 88 career plate appearances at Fenway Park despite striking out in 35.2 percent of his plate appearances:

    The sample is too small to be particularly meaningful, but there you have it.

    He has versatility too he can play third as well if WMB needs a day off. He was only moved to 1B to make room for machado he is still a servicable 3B.

    Almost every player needs a day of once in a while not all players are built to play all 162 games.Maybe he is that kind of player but we ont know that yet, Justpointing out that Reynolds also brings versatilty to the team if signed.

    Will Middlebrooks is 24 years old, but I understand your point.

    Seems like the Sox had their Mark Reynolds this year in Salty and the fans just couldn't deal with all the K's in clutch situations that Salty suffered.  Salty had 25 HRs in something a bit over 400 ABs.  O's are letting him go for a reason...

    Yes, because they do not want to pay the arbitration raise on his $7.5mill salary...

    well.... i mean a broken hand will do that to ya.

    the O's likely let him go because of cost, they probably feel they can allocate that cash to different areas in a more productive fashion.

    gotta say there are more and more 1st base options each day. maybe tomorrow we will learn the mets are putting Davis on the block

    I know he had a broken hand. Just pointing out that those things happen. You can ever assume that anyone will be healthy all year , no matter what their age may be.  Not too many Ripkens out there these days.

    According to the Globe's Peter Abraham, Mark Reynolds told Baltimore reporters that he prefers a team that trains in Arizona. Reynolds could be a nice fit with the Cleveland Indians.

    yeah i get ya. in any case, versatility is a huge plus! especially given the string of bad luck and bad health this team as had for several years now. its nice to have guys who are able and willing to play multiple positions.

    i would sign reynolds to play 1B, which he is much better suited for than 3B. he has big time power, right handed bat, he could put up big power numbers in boston. He is 29 years old, so younger than napoli and is actually a 1B/3B, not a catcher attempting to play the position.

    Reynolds is not much different from Napoli or Morse.  I could see the Sox landing one of them...

    I think they are letting him go to move Chris Davis to 1 B and if Reynolds went to Arb he might make over $9 M. 

    I could see him platooning with Pena for the Sox or the Rays with the other providing a threat off the bench as a PH. Platooning might cut down on both their strikeouts.

    Reynolds or Berkman are probably good fit for a team looking for temporary fix on 1B. The Red Sox can sign one of these 1B for a year and get Hosmer for a long term 1B, and I think the Sox 1B problem would be solve.

    1-Good Fenway stats (see Hill) might entice him into a make-good contract.

    2-I didn't see him much, but they said he is very good at 1st.

    3-I don't think he is quite as good as Laroche or Napoli, but the $$$ and years make up for it.

    4-He is close enough to being good that a big year at Fenway might allow us to make a 2014 qualifying offer.

    5-For all the Ks, he managed to bring his ratio down to almost 2/1 last year.

    Some of this depends on how you want to allocate your budget, but I think he might pay a good return.

    23 homers = "insane power"

     

    That is one less then Napoli's insane power

     

    I have had enough today with the forum
