I'm wondering about this guy too. In between Reynolds and Blalock I'm having a tough time deciding who to go foward with as the season moves on.
Ichiro? No...
Dunn? No...
Ichiro Dunn! 106 runs, 23 home runs, 87 rbis, 23 stolen bases, 0.313 season average
Adam Suzuki! 106 runs, 23 home runs, 87 rbis, 23 stolen bases, 0.313 season average
Double the fun!

He could/should lose playing time to Chad Tracy when Tracy returns from the DL.

Dumb talk. Reynolds has his job in stone at 3rd. If anything, It's gonna be CoJack and Tracy splitting time at first.

Unless he slumps, I'd say his position is entrenched. Then you'd probably be thinking about dumping him before he even got platooned. I like Reynolds right now except in formats that penalize heavily for strikeouts.

Being a die hard Dbacks fan it's pretty much on the radio here every day. Trust me, Bo-Mel isn't going to just put Tracy in at third due to "losing his job to injury." He loves the "sherriff" (Reynolds) and Reynolds earned his keep at 3rd. CoJack however, is going to have to split time with Tracy, just like CoJack did with Tony Clark last year. I could even see Tracy having the full time job by the end of the year maybe because we signed him to a big contract two years ago. It baffles me how CoJack is batting cleanup right now, as does Bo-Mel's decision of having Lyon as the closer.

Reynolds was my sleeper this year, and I grabbed him in 2 leagues. To be honest, I wasn't expecting this much from him this early. I was hoping for decent production mid- to late-year. I won't complain about this one bit, though. I still think his BA will lead to inconsistency, so I would carry a suitable backup if you have Reynolds on your team.

He'll hit 30+ easily. The question is whether his AVG will hold up. I also don't believe he'll platoon with Tracy unless he absolutely sucks.

That's crazy talk. There was a superthread dedicated to BJ Upton last year that tracked his daily at-bats and positions played all through-out Spring Training. And he was still available late in the overwhelming majority of fantasy drafts in 2007. There is usually very little downside, if any at all, to helping out your fellow cafe members.
