Each of his last seven HR have been 430+, with three over 450 and one titanic 481 foot blast (longest HR in the majors this year).


Now that made me laugh (and wasn't a canned joke).

I don't think the slg% are all that similar. Beltre was at .426 and .424, while Reynolds was at .495 (less than a full season) and .458. They move in a similar way in the chart, but the scale is fairly wide. Beltre had five full years of 15-23 homers each year, and that's with a LOT more balls in play than Reynolds has. The strikeouts are a major difference, as well.

I think Reynolds has a home run floor for a full season of about 25. (That could be accompanied by a .220 avg, and he could get benched if he struggles badly, so I'm not saying he's a safe pick.) Even with the strikeouts, he's bested that every year (at least in terms of his hr rate). I'd say the floor for Beltre was a little lower, maybe 15. Jmo, but that power gap looks wider to me.

Another HR today, making 10 in his last 12 games. He is LOCKED THE [mod edit] IN. Can we make this topic the official Mark Reynolds Fan Club?

No word yet on how far he hit it. :-b

There is no player in baseball that I am less likely to draft next year than Mark Reynolds, he will be the top of my must avoid based on where he will go list.

Oh yeah of course, but I'm going to ride this ridiculous production to the end of this season after getting him in the 16th.

Reynolds is ranked 23rd of all batters in my points league, which puts him 2nd out of all 3B's. Reason for this is his 151 strikeouts which are -1. Counting pitchers on draft day, no way he goes 1st round or I know I wouldn't take him.

Might want to check this out and see about removing that K penalty.
